Let's sample some of the great live theater available in Providence. Brown's MFA program is renowned for their quality shows and annual performance series.
On deck this year is the surrealist play Rhinoceros by Eugene Ionesco, famous for its absurdist execution.
Over the course of three acts, the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinoceroses; ultimately the only human who does not succumb to this mass metamorphosis is the central character, Bérenger, a flustered everyman figure who is often criticized throughout the play for his drinking and tardiness. The play is often read as a response and criticism to the sudden upsurge of Communism, Fascism and Nazism during the events preceding World War II, and explores the themes of conformity, culture, mass movements, philosophy and morality.
