David Mamet political comedy opens Studio season
2012-13 season opens with political comedy.
Minnesota State, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance News Release 8-29-2012
The Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance will open its 2012-13 seasons with David Mamet’s “November,” 7:30 p.m. Sept. 19-22 in the Andreas Theatre of the Earley Center for Performing Arts. It is the first show of the Studio season.
It’s November in a Presidential election year and incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for re-election are looking grim. Approval ratings are down, his money’s running out and nuclear war might be imminent. With Pulitzer Prize-winning Mamet’s characteristic no-holds-barred style, “November” is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win. This is its Minnesota State Mankato debut; it contains mature language and themes.
Individual tickets for “November” are $10 regular, $9 for senior citizens, youth 16 and under and groups of 15 or more, $8 for current Minnesota State students. Individual tickets for this show, as well as all shows in the season, go on sale Monday, Sept. 17, at MSUTheatre.com
The Theatre & Dance Box Office will be open 4-6 p.m. in the lobby of the Earley Center for Performing Arts that day. Subscriptions are also on sale for the 2012-13 Mainstage season.
