Onstage October 23-25

"...Boldly, brashly and bravely were the archetypal images of 1950s Americana – housewives, pinup gals, the hierarchy of popularity recreated onstage, stretched to the max and then turned upsidedown in colourful, extraordinary, bombastic fashion…”

Executive Director of Cleveland Public Theatre’s Raymond Bobgan has announced the recent addition to the 2014-2015 season line-up. Cleveland Public Theatre will be partnering with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland to bring the Israeli physical theatre company, The Visual Theatre of Emanuella Amichai who will be performing “The Neighbor’s Grief is Greener”.

“Neighbor’s Grief” is a noir visual work that was inspired by all phases of the 1950’s in America including the music, television and conspicuous consumer culture. The program combines physical theatre, contemporary dance and award winning production design to tell the story of three women and a man living together in the sterile environment of an atypical suburban kitchen of the 50s.
