Tri-Cities Opera Announces Terrence McNally’s MASTER CLASS  (Binghamton, NY) Tri-Cities Opera is presenting a company premiere, Terrence McNally’s Tony Award-winning play, MASTER CLASS, which will be performed in the Opera Center’s intimate Savoca Hibbitt Hall at 315 Clinton Street from February 23-25, 2018. MASTER CLASS marks the third production of TCO’s 69th season, and its first time collaboration with Theatre Street Productions. It will also commemorate the 40th anniversary of Maria Callas’ passing and the 95th year of her birth. MASTER CLASS is based on the series of master classes taught by the legendary diva Maria Callas at the Juilliard School in the 1970's, and won the 1996 Tony Award for Best Play. In the play, Callas berates her students as much as she encourages them and retreats into recollections about her own life and career, including her relationship with shipping tycoon, Aristotle Onassis. The play also features operatic excerpts from Bellini’s LA SONNAMBULA, Puccini’s TOSCA, and Verdi’s MACBETH. Former TCO Resident Artist Andrea Gregori will be reprising the role of Maria Callas, for which she has been praised as being "magical...a force to be reckoned with" (Broome Arts Mirror). Others in the cast include TCO Resident Artists Stacey Geyer as Sharon Graham, and Jordan Schreiner as Anthony Candolino. He previously appeared in Theatre Street’s 2015 production at the Endicott Performing Arts Center. Binghamton University student Lianne Aharony will portray Sophie DePalma and Musical Associate John Cockerill will appear as Emmanuel Weinstock. Former Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan will play the Stagehand. Former Resident Artist Cynthia Clarey is making her TCO directorial debut and was one of the original Callas master class participants. Performances will be held on February 23rd and 24th, 2018 at 7:30pm and February 25th at 3:00pm. A free preview is scheduled for February 17th at 7:30pm, in Continue Reading

Harpur Cinema – Endless Poetry

February 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Binghamton University Lecture Hall 6, 4400 Vestal Pkwy E.
Vestal, NY 13850 United States
$4.00

Endless Poetry – Alejandro Jodorowsky – Chile/France/UK – 2016 – 128 min. The director of cult films like El Topo and The Holy Mountain presents the second chapter of his cinematic memoirs. Young Alejandro, now in his twenties, decides to be a poet and discovers the art world of Santiago de Chile in the late 1940s. Besides a vociferating father and a mother singing all her lines, the film offers a gallery of characters reminiscent of Fellini. Bolstered by the exquisite cinematography of Christopher Doyle, the film is a feast for the eyes, a formidable and unbridled sensual spectacle, a “testament to the relentless energy and undimmed ingenuity of its creator” and “a world of hallucinatory artifice” (A.O. Scott, The New York Times). Won: San Francisco International Film Festival, Best Narrative Feature. Nominated: Locarno International Film Festival – Munich Film Festival – Cannes Film Festival

KNOW Theatre presents True West by Sam Shepard

February 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 24, 2018

Binghamton City Stage, 74 Carroll Street
Binghamton, NY 13901 United States
$15 - $20

A finalist for the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. Sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Saul Kimmer when Lee, a demented petty thief, drops in. He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee's trashy Western tale. "True West has arguably become Shepard's signature piece, the leanest, most pointed of his full-length works." - David Krasner, A Companion to Twentieth Century American Drama. "Shepard's ...masterwork It tells us a truth, as glimpsed by a 37-year-old genius." - New York Post "It's clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic. If that sounds contradictory, you're on to one aspect of Shepard's winning genius; the ability to make you think you're watching one thing while at the same time he's presenting another." - San Francisco Chronicle Shows are February 9, 10, 11 / 15*, 16, 17, 18 / 23, 24, 25 with February 15th being our Pay-What-You-Can Night at 8pm Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm Tickets are $20/adults, $18/seniors, $15/students

This February, the Binghamton University Theatre Department proudly presents The Liar, adapted by David Ives from the 17th-century comedy by Pierre Corneille. Directed by professor Tom Kremer, this fresh adaptation is hilarious, mischievous, romantic and delightfully intricate. The extravagant liar 'Dorante' tells anything but the truth to win the hand of the alluring 'Clarice' — or is it 'Lucrece,' her shy friend that he's fallen for? Watch as mayhem unfolds as someone who can't tell the truth meets someone who can't tell a lie. What happens, one may ask? Only the audience knows! Laugh yourself silly watching this masterful mix up of falsehoods that bloom into truths.
