Georges Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers
In a seaside village in the Far East, a veiled priestess arrives to bless the pearl divers. But the catch in this story involves much more than pearls – worlds collide as one of the village men realizes the woman behind the veil is none other than Leila, whom both he and his best friend love and swore an eternal oath to never touch again. When he breaks his vow, life will never be the same.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] by Adam Long, Daniel Singer & Jess Winfield
The unholy drought is over. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) returns (now [revised]) after a (much too long) 14-year absence. The original Bad Boys of Abridgment squished all 37 plays plus a few sonnets to boot into a time-lapse performance. This season, Jobsite dusts off the Chuck Taylors, dons the doublets and delivers a fair number of pratfalls, terrible puns, mis-readings and madcap capers for this chaotic, comprehensive dash through The Bard’s greatest hits.
8pm to 9:30pm
