(GLASSBORO, NJ) -- Rowan University’s Lab Theatre presents X, a musical theatre cabaret exploring issues related to women, as seen through the lens of the 1960s. Performances are November 9 and 10 in the Department of Theatre & Dance’s Lab Theatre on the Glassboro campus.
Named for the female chromosome, X is presented under the direction of faculty member Christopher Roche. The show will feature four movements - female empowerment, love, drugs and war/protest - told through a selection of popular songs from the 1960s.
The 10-person cast performs music made famous by such artists as Joan Baez, James Brown, The Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Lesley Gore, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Sly & the Family Stone, and Tina Turner.
According to Roche, the evening follows much of the structure of the legendary rock musical Hair, which will be the final production of the Department of Theatre & Dance mainstage season April 5 – 13.
Performances of X are November 9 at 8:00pm and November 10 at 2:00pm and 7:00pm. Admission is $10 at the door. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first served basis.
