The Promethean Theatre Presents Dumb Show at NSU – Opens May 15

The Promethean Theatre (TPT), Nova Southeastern University’s professional theater company in residence, will present the southeastern premiere of Dumb Show, May 15–31, 2009, in the Mailman-Hollywood Building Auditorium. Show times are Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 3:00 p.m.

A play by Joe Penhall and directed by Margaret M. Ledford, Dumb Show is a searing account of tabloid journalism, the value of fame, and the overstepping of personal boundaries in the world of celebrity worship and gossip mongers. The cast features Carbonell Award-winning actor Gregg Weiner, David Sirois, and Deborah L. Sherman, TPT’s co-founder and producing artistic director.

London’s Daily Telegraph says Penhall’s Dumb Show “offers a mesmerizing, utterly persuasive account of a classic tabloid sting … a furious, black-comic satire on the bankrupt values of our tabloid culture.”

Tickets for Dumb Show are $5 for NSU students. Prices for the general public are $25 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $10 for students with valid ID. Cash and checks are accepted at the door, but not credit cards. For tickets, call (786) 317-7580 or email boxoffice@theprometheantheatre.org. For more information about TPT, visit www.theprometheantheatre.org.

The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences is proud to partner with The Promethean Theatre in bringing professional theater productions to NSU. TPT’s production of Two Sisters and a Piano, presented at NSU in 2008, has earned the 33rd annual Carbonell Award for “Best Ensemble.” The Carbonell Awards are South Florida’s oldest and most prestigious arts honors.
