Greetings! It gives me great pleasure to introduce the plays that comprise our 2014-15 academic theatre season. Those of you that have joined us before know that we always strive to offer our patrons a season that runs the gamut of the human condition. This season will see productions penned by some of the greatest authors in the English-speaking world, including the works of Tennessee Williams, William Shakespeare, Eugene O’Neill, Oliver Goldsmith, Jim Leonard Jr., and the Tony Award-winning team of William Hauptman and Roger Miller. These are some of the heaviest hitters ever to grace the Regent stage! As always, it remains our mission to produce the best dramatic and musical literature of the theatre with creativity and imagination. I think you will find that this year we have reimagined and breathed new life into some of the greatest pieces in the Western theatrical tradition. As always, we so appreciate you—our patrons. You make theatre at Regent University possible. Thank you for your support and for joining us for yet another exciting season of live theatre!
