to add to April Events!

This Saturday at GeVa: 

April is National Poetry Month and Geva Theatre Center is joining in the celebration. Poetry has figured prominently in two Geva productions this season – Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun (the title of which comes from a line in Langston Hughes’ “Harlem”) and Tracy Letts’ Superior Donuts, currently running through April 29th. In acknowledgement of the importance of poetry to both of these works, Geva Theatre Center and Writers and Books have partnered with ten local poets to present the works of the ten poets mentioned in Superior Donuts. Each Rochester poet will read a selected work by one of the writers discussed in the play and then present one of their own works in response.

The Superior Donuts Poetry Jam will take place Saturday, April 21st at 6:30 pm – stay for the reading following the 4:00 pm matinee or enjoy the poetry before attending the 8:30 pm evening performance. The event is free but a $5.00 donation is requested. If you have questions about the event, please call Jenni Werner at (585) 232-1366 ext. 3040.



Aging hippie Arthur Przybyszewski owns a rundown Donut Shop in a multi-ethnic neighborhood of Chicago. His black teenage assistant Franco, full of dreams and bright ideas, wants to rejuvenate the shop with lively music and low-cal menu options. What’s a radical to do when presented with even more radical ideas? A comedy-drama about facing your demons and the redemptive power of friendship from the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright of August: Osage County.
