The University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance announces an inaugural five-performance Subscription Series. The 2012-2013 season brings to the stage dramatic storytelling by Pulitzer Prize acclaimed playwrights, two world premieres, a bold adaptation of a cherished classic, and enthralling dance by nationally renowned choreographers.
“You are about to witness one of the ways that the arts brings new things into the world,” explains Brant Pope, chairman of the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Texas at Austin. “Our 2012/13 season rivals in creative energy anything a state of the art science lab or think tank could invent. This year, we have two world premieres – the stunning adaptation of The Scarlet Letter, and Suzan Zeder’s brilliantThe Edge of Peace. The latter marks the first co-production between our department and the celebrated Seattle Children’s Theatre. Audiences will relish the regional premiere of The Cataract by UT alumna and Pulitzer Prize nominated playwright, Lisa D’Amour. Add to this, Lynn Nottage’s smash hit Intimate Appareland Dance Repertory Theatre’s compelling choreography and this season is proving to be one of the most exciting yet!”
Additional non-subscription season highlights include Fall For Dance; UTNT (UT New Theatre), curated by preeminent playwright Steven Dietz; and the Cohen New Works Festival, presented by The University Co-op. An audience favorite, the Cohen New Works Festival offers over 30 plays, dances, and exhibits to more than 8,000 patrons in six days.
Tickets for the department’s inaugural five performance Subscription Series are on sale now online at jointhedrama.org, or by calling (512) 471-4454.
