Sonatas... and A Play

Printer-friendly version

Tonight in Ramsey Concert Hall at the UGA Performing Arts Center, associate professor of violin Michael Heald, with Jana Hanchett on piano, will play sonatas by Poulenc, Mozart, Brahms and Mendelssohn. The free program begins at 8 p.m. and the public is invited to attend. Meanwhile, our friends and colleagues at University Theatre will begin a run of Neil LaBute's 2001 The Shape of Things in the Cellar Theatre at the Fine Arts Building tonight at 8 p.m.. The performances run through January 31, with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. on the 31st. The play focuses on the life of Adam, an overweight, insecure security guard, who stumbles upon Evelyn, an art student trying to deface a statue. They begin a relationship, and Evelyn begins to remake Adam into her image of the perfect man. The play premiered in London in 2001 and in 2003 was made into a film starring Paul Rudd, Gretchen Mol, Frederick Weller, and Rachel Weisz.
