Pygmalion Season (SLC: Oct 21 - May 29)

Pygmalion Announces Season
and much, much more!

We have a fantastic season line-up for you this year!
Pygmalion's season opens with The Coming Ice Age by Deseret News reporter Elaine Jarvik. This is an original piece about downsizing from the family home into a "senior citizen" setting. When Roger's neighborhood begins to change, he doesn't want to budge. This play explores what it means to get old, to resist loss and change, and eventually find refuge. Directed by Larry West The Coming Ice Age features David Phillips, Dee Mancuso, Teri Cowan and Winkie Horman. The production runs from October 21 - November 7.

Well by Lisa Kron and directred by Jason Bowcutt runs February 24 - March 13 and explores why some people get "well" others never do. More importantly it is about mother / daughter relationships, and personal, interpersonal and community integration. Ben Brantley of The New York Times said, "Well turns out to be about the mystery of human personalities, even and especially those of the people you think you know intimately". Well features Cheryl Gaysunas and Anne Cullimore Decker.

Our season closes with The Good Body by Eve Ensler and runs April 28 - May 15. Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues) tackles body image in this three-woman play which gives a humorous, but penetrating glimpse at the way Americans view their bodies. Ensler captures the torment many women feel "What I can't believe is that me, a radical feminist for nearly thirty years could spend this much time thinking about my stomach."

Pygmalion is also offering a limited engagement piece this Spring. Madame X is a special evening of cabaret featuring Janice Hall, and directed by Fran Pruyn. Ms. Hall, a classical singer who is now focusing on cabaret in NYC, tells the story of glamour and pain in Hollywood through music, film clips and personal stories. Madame X runs May 27 - May 29.

All shows will be held at the Rose Wagner Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are available at 801-355-ARTS or Arttix.org
