TUE-SAT, OCT 28-NOV 1


Inspired by the sensationalist 1927 trial of Ruth Snyder, Sophie Treadwell’s expressionistic portrayal of the events and forces surrounding Snyder’s alleged crime leaves open the question of guilt. Suffocated by her manipulative mother, overbearing husband and the dehumanizing industrialism that drives Prohibition-era New York City, a “Young Woman” makes the ultimate bid for freedom. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance. Adult content. More

Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's Such Sweet Thunder

Featuring JMU's Jazz Ensemble and Theatre Students

CONCERT HALL


In honor of Shakespeare’s 450th anniversary, the JMU Jazz Studies program and the School of Theatre and Dance come together for a production of Duke Ellington’s masterful jazz suite Such Sweet Thunder. Written in 1957 by Duke Ellington and his longtime collaborator Billy Strayhorn, this inspired, 12-part tribute to the Bard takes it name from a line in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. More
