Open: 05/04/17- Close: 05/28/17 RESISTANCE AND REBELLION IN REP
Known for re-imagining works of the past to engage in modern issues, Random Access Theatre will be exploring two classic pieces with bold characters who fought against injustice in Resistance and Rebellion in Rep. Productions of Ernst Toller's Hoppla, We're Alive! and Sophocles' Antigone will alternate performances at The Loft at the Davenport Theatre May 4-28. Hoppla, We're Alive! directed by Artistic Director Jennifer Sandella, tells the story of a group of revolutionaries who, eight years after they are pardoned from death row, have found various ways to adapt to the unchanged world they once rebelled against.

Venue:
Loft at the Davenport Theatre : 354 W. 45th St.
Open: / / - Close: Open Run THE JAG
Seventy year old "Chick" Chicarella has one prized possession, a 1966 Jaguar that is in desperate need of repair. When his son suggests that they finish the car to sell it off, old family wounds and failures rise to the surface. Unable to complete the task themselves, they hire Carla, who is an expert in Jaguars, but woefully lacking in social skills. Together, the three learn some hard lessons about repairing cars and smoothing out life's jagged edges.

Starring Dan Grimaldi (best known for The Sopranos and last seen at NJ Rep in Lucky Me),  Christopher Daftsios (Swimming at the Ritz and Substance of Bliss at NJ Rep) and newcomer to NJ Rep, Estelle Bajou (a Drama Desk Award nominated actor).
