Dinner at Eight | 8:00 p.m.
$7 Student Ticket (show ID at the door) $14 General Admission
Tisch Drama Stageworks Presents: Dinner at Eight. George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber's 1932 comedy Dinner at Eight directed by Robert Moss celebrates and satirizes the lives of New York high society during the Great Depression. It also conveys the darker currents that ran through these gilded lives in that era, as they do today. The New York Times critic, Ben Brantley writes, "If you plan to spend time on a sinking ship, it might as well be the Titanic... these endangered sybarites will be going down in style, with silks and furs to fend off the mortal chills and crystal chandeliers to light their paths to doom." for more information, click here www.nyu.edu/ticketcentral/calendar
