This is Like That
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of “This is Like That” by Michael Sean Cirelli, a solo performance piece in the form of an eccentric slide lecture with a temperamental carousel projector and an apple. The play is a collaboration between Cirelli and director Emerie Snyder with performances 8/31 at 8PM, 9/1 at 5PM, 9/2 at 6:30pm, 9/3 at 9PM, and 9/4 at 6:30PM.
After unexpectedly realizing that he’s meant to be giving a lecture to everyone around him, a befuddled language professor attempts to explain the beauty he finds in language—only he cannot find the words. A piece for anyone who has ever felt misunderstood, or felt they might feel understood but weren’t. “This is Like That” is a one-person play that grapples with questions about language, identity, religion, and the stories we tell others and ourselves.
