STAGEStheatre presents Six Degrees of Separation, by John Guare. The play, which began a cultural craze, explores the saddest fact of urban life--how close people are physically while they remain economically and psychologically apart. Guare takes a true story of a young man who entered the homes of the privileged by purporting to be Sidney Poitier's son and brings into collision the normally separated lives of some modern Manhattanites, each yearning to know about some distant and romantic way of life that is actually just an acquaintanceship or two away. Gary Krinke directs.
Written in 1990, Six Degrees of Separation won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and the Obie for Best Play as well as several Tony nominations. The STAGEStheatre production stars Brian Kojac, Arlyn MacDonald, and DeLon Howell. Gary Krinke directs.
There is no show on February 5th.
