Directing The Odyssey | Babcock Theatre

The Trojan War is over, but Odysseus and his men have not returned. Back home, his wife Penelope, plagued by suitors, promises to remarry as soon as she has finished her father-in-law’s shroud—which she unravels every night. Meanwhile, Odysseus is stranded on islands, caught in storms, trapped by a Cyclops and a sorceress, and impeded by other monsters and gods. Will he ever make it home to his wife and fatherless son?

This adaptation by Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphosis, Guys and Dolls, The White Snake) weaves her own spell on Homer’s classic tale of adventure, trials and steadfast love.

Directing The Rivals | University of Utah's Babcock Theatre

The Rivals
By Richard Brinley Sheridan
Directed by Alexandra Harbold
April 5-14, 2019
Babcock Theatre

The Rivals is a tightly woven farce of aristocratic and bourgeois love rivalry in the city of Bath. Sheridan’s comic masterpiece spins its tale around two couples who are thwarted on their way to matrimony. Featuring some of theatre’s great comic characters, the windbag Sir Anthony Absolute and the foolish Mrs. Malaprop–The Rivals is an uproariously funny feast that satisfies many a lusty appetite all while poking good fun at our superficial, narcissistic, preening times.

Sweat By Lynn Nottage
Director Mary B. Robinson

Is the “American Dream” still alive? And if so, who gets to pursue it?

In a small manufacturing town in Pennsylvania, the lives of nine people—friends, co-workers, mothers and sons, former spouses and lovers—intersect as they try to hold onto, or reach for, the American Dream in the face of the increasingly precarious and divisive economic conditions of America at the dawn of the new millennium.

the live creature and ethereal things’ is a journey of the imagination for all ages. This dance performance is inspired by the mission of the Red Fred Project, founded by Dallas Graham, which gives voice to young creatives living in extraordinary circumstances. This magical adventure transports you past the threshold of the ordinary into a world of fantastical possibilities and asks, “if you could tell a story and share it with the entire world, what story would you tell?” 

Guest performer Robert Scott Smith joins the Company on this curious, shapeshifting, and theatrical quest. Story telling in both English and Spanish, ‘the live creature and ethereal things’ explores how all of our voices and stories matter, and how our intimate social connections weave the pattern of our lives and happiness. Choreography by Artistic Director Daniel Charon, storyline in collaboration with Alexandra Harbold and Robert Scott Smith of Flying Bobcat Theatrical Laboratory, and original score created by John Paul Hayward, lyrics by Troy Deutsch, and costume design by Jared Gold.

Sometimes the greatest act of heroism, in the face of a century of war and bloodshed, is the willingness to sit in a room and talk with your enemy.

J.T. Rogers turns the act of diplomacy into a thrilling “how-dunit” in this riveting story of a Norwegian academic who secretly brings together sworn enemies, representatives of the State of Israel and the Palestinians, to broker the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.

Written by Ireland’s master storyteller Brian Friel, and inspired in part by researcher Oliver Sacks’ essay “To See and Not See,” Molly Sweeney tells the story of a woman who was blind since childhood. Prompted by the “medical miracle” hopes of both her husband and her surgeon, Molly agrees to a procedure to restore her sight.
