An Enemy of the People

By Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Alexandru Mihail
October 19th— October 22nd
Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm, Saturday Matinee at 2pm
Featuring NYU third-year students

Ibsen’s socio-political commentary follows the plight of Dr. Stockmann and his hometown in Norway. The future of the town looks bright until the doctor acknowledges danger in the city’s water supply and his voice is silenced. A potent review of the role of authority in society, Ibsen’s tragi-comedy questions the nature of absolute truth and the role of the individual in society.

Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Danya Taymor
November 2nd— November 5th at the Atlantic Stage 2 Theater
(Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm, Saturday Matinee at 2pm)
Featuring NYU third-year students in an all-female cast

The most infamous betrayal of all time is brought to life in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. A story of loyalty, friendship, and treachery is played out amidst the Senate of Ancient Rome as Brutus attempts to usurp power from the beloved Caesar. The passing of centuries has done little to diminish the potency and timeliness of Caesar as commentary on the universal nature of ambition, power, and accountability.




Conservatory 2 Evening of One-Acts
November 9th– November 12th at the Atlantic Black Box Theatre
(Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm, Saturday Matinee at 2pm)

By Molière
Directed by Marlo Hunter
November 16th— November 19th at the Atlantic Stage 2 Theater
(Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm, Saturday Matinee at 2pm)
Featuring NYU third-year students

Regarded as Moliere’s most popular play, this comedy of errors follows the deceptively pious Tartuffe as he ingratiates himself to the wealthy Orgon—gaining access to his fortune and thrusting his family into turmoil. A satirical commentary on the value of religion, Tartuffe exemplifies Moliere’s commitment to underlining the comedic value of the juxtaposition of good and bad, right and wrong, and wisdom and folly.
