School of Music announces 2001-02 productions

The School of Music’s 2001–02 mainstage production season begins this month with the moral parable The Good Person of Szechwan by Berthold Brecht. Later in October, college football and academics clash when Good News! hits the stage, written by the team of B.G. DeSylva, Lew Brown, Ray Henderson and Frank Mandel.

In November, production of Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Consul, a dark and dramatic tale of government bureaucratic oppression, celebrates the “father of American opera.” Also in November, The Secret Rapture by David Hare is an intense psychological drama which follows the tale of two sisters dealing with the messy legacy of their departed father.

In December, The Grapes of Wrath, Frank Galati’s adaptation of the John Steinbeck novel, takes a penetrating look at the lives of ordinary people striving to preserve their humanity in the face of vast inequities of the American experience.
