The New Jersey Repertory Company presents the world premiere of Mary Fengar Gail's Touch of Rapture. The mystery surrounding an artist's legacy is explored in this romantic comedy that celebrates the love of art and the art of love. Before dying, a reclusive sculptress speaks her last words to her husband: "Will you take my hands?" He does, and in that instant her gift of sculpting is bestowed upon him, radically changing his perceptions. Overwhelmed by his new powers, his life spirals out of control, and he is forced to seek the help of his wife's cousin and brother. Together they try to balance the business of art with its creation, and also find time to fall in love.
Special preview performances are on Thursday, January 13th at 2:00 PM and 8PM.
