THEATRE: In the Boom Boom Room
April 19, 2006
MMC Theatre Production Workshop presents In the Boom Boom Room by David Rabe. Chrissy, a young innocent who is seeking stardom as a serious dancer, finds herself suddenly working in a disco/bar called The Boom Boom Room. Fighting to keep her dreams intact through a sea of strippers, prostitutes, and destructive relationships, she remains hopeful until the bitter end.
In the Boom Boom Room, originally produced by the Public Theater in 1973, remains a searing feminist portrait, written by one of the most significant and influential playwrights of our time.
This production is performed by students in the Theatre Arts programs of the College with direction by Ellen Orenstein, scenic design by Miguel Rosa, and lighting design by Chris Coyle.
Opening night reception will follow the performance on Wednesday, April 19th.
