RTS: Awake and Sing

By Clifford Odets; Directed by Arnold Sgan
March 29-31, 2019

Friday and Saturday at 2:30 pm in 35below; Sunday at 2:30 pm at the Reuter Center on UNCA’s campus

A Jewish family of three generations lives crammed together in a Bronx apartment during the Great Depression.

Lobby Hero

By Kenneth Lonergan; Produced by Ellipsis Theater Company * Directed by Devyn Ray Villarreal

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm

A storytelling format in the vein of “This American Life,” Listen to This is an evening hosted by Chalmers with stories and songs from some of Asheville’s most interesting writers, performers, and citizens.
