Yale Cabaret announces the start of its 48th season
The Yale Cabaret has announced the opening three plays of its 48th season: a romantic comedy, a dark mystery, and a collaboration between Yale School of Drama, Art, and Music students. The rest of the season will be announced in late September.
The season will open with “We Are All Here,” a remix of Charles L. Mee’s “Wintertime,” on Thursday, Sept. 17. Adapted by David Bruin and Jiréh Breon Holder, the romantic comedy is “an explosion of humor, passion, and heartache,” according to the organizers, and will feature music, dancing, and a cast of 10. Directed by Bruin, the play will be staged Sept. 17–19.
The next production will be David Harrower’s “Knives in Hens,” described as a “dark, seductive mystery” about language and its power. Directed by Jesse Rasmussen, the play will be staged Sept. 24-26.
The third production is titled “I’m with you in Rockland,” a new play inspired by the life and work of Allen Ginsberg, created by Kevin Hourigan with the Company. Students from the Schools of Drama, Art, and Music will come together to “create a kaleidoscopic montage for our contemporary moment” that uses song, image, and theater to ask: “What is the value of the artist today?” The play will run Oct. 8-10.
Founded in 1968, the Yale Cabaret is the home for graduate-student artists at the Yale School of Drama. The cabaret produces 18 shows every season, all created by drama students. Many of the world’s theatrical luminaries — including Meryl Streep, Lynn Nottage, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Durang, Anna Shapiro, John Turturro, Angela Bassett, and Paul Giamatti — honed their talents at the Yale Cabaret.
Performances take place at the Yale Cabaret, located at 217 Park St. Tickets for the Yale Cabaret are $20; $12 for students. A nine-ticket Flex Pass, which can be used in any combination, is $117; $81 for students. Groups of 10 or more can purchase tickets at a special group rate.
