PARENT’S WEEKEND

8:00pm

**Hoof n’ Horn presents Godspell

Conceived and originally directed by John-Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, “Godspell” is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time. Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, “Godspell” boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day By Day.” As the cast performs “Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All For The Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side,” the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life. Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, “Godspell” is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love. Note: Due to the nature of the venue, there will be no late seating allowed for this performance. Refunds will not be granted for a missed performance due to a late arrival. Appropriate for all ages $10 Adults $8 Students w/ ID Free Children under 3

Sheafer Lab Theater, Bryan Center, West Campus 8:00pm

**Classical Theatre of Harlem’s Waiting for Godot

This “dauntless” company (New York Times) drew a crowd of 10,000 to the New Orleans performance of its Godot revival, which it staged in the 9th Ward, on the porch of a flooded house, after black Americans had waited months for a more concrete kind of salvation. At Duke, the Harlembased company’s “bracing and immediate” adaptation of Beckett’s play (Time Out NY) sharpens yet another radical edge of this timeless parable of abandonment. The tramps, the road, and the tree could be in Wilmington (race riot 1898), Rocky Mount (flooded 1999), Durham — or anywhere Americans wait for help that either will arrive or won’t.

Reynolds Theater, Bryan Center, West Campus 11:59pm

**Classical Theatre of Harlem’s Waiting for Godot

This “dauntless” company (New York Times) drew a crowd of 10,000 to the New Orleans performance of its Godot revival, which it staged in the 9th Ward, on the porch of a flooded house, after black Americans had waited months for a more concrete kind of salvation. At Duke, the Harlem-based company’s “bracing and immediate” adaptation of Beckett’s play (Time Out NY) sharpens yet another radical edge of this timeless parable of abandonment. The tramps, the road, and the tree could be in Wilmington (race riot 1898), Rocky Mount (flooded 1999), Durham — or anywhere Americans wait for help that either will arrive or won’t.

**Hoof n’ Horn presents Godspell

Conceived and originally directed by John-Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, “Godspell” is one of

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009 | 15

the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time. Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, “Godspell” boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day By Day.” As the cast performs “Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All For The Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side,” the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life. Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, “Godspell” is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love. Note: Due to the nature of the venue, there will be no late seating allowed for this performance. Refunds will not be granted for a missed performance due to a late arrival.
