POLITICAL THEATER 101

Venice Saved: A Seminar at P.S.122

Director David Levine has described Simone Weil’s 1943 historical drama as “an inferior piece of political theater [that] disappoints all your expectations.” So Levine has staged it as a graduate seminar where actors and audiences discuss the problems the script provokes: questions of translation, adaptation, and what constitutes good political theater.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 6 p.m. Starts: March 21. Continues through April 5, 2009
