Cusi Cram (Cycle 2) with choreography by Cari Ann Shim Sham    in The Room
Everything is upside down in Sarah’s life and her nearest and dearest are behaving absymally. How can she possibly forgive them? With the help of the imaginary chorus in her head and a few extended dance breaks, Sarah navigates the complicated waters of forgiveness and ultimately letting go.

Monday October 30, 7pm:  I am Romeo/Casa Cushman written & directed by Leigh Fondakowski  (Cycle 2) in the Bruce Mitchell Room
A work of historical fiction, the play follows the life of Charlotte Cushman, a famous American actress from the 19th century, as she creates an artist commune in Rome for female artists to come live and work. Based on letters, photographs, biographies, newspaper clippings, and other ephemera, the play is a portrait of female artists at a time before there was language to describe their fierce ambition or their passionate desire for one another. Inspired by the book “When Romeo was a Woman” by Lisa Merrill
