Eagle Theatre Presents "The Shape Of Things" With Weekly Art Exhibits

Eagle Theatre Presents "The Shape Of Things" With Weekly Art Exhibits(HAMMONTON, NJ) -- On September 15, Eagle Theatre opens The Shape Of Things, a fast-paced, razor sharp, 90-minute dramedy, that revels in delightful exploration of the power of art, perception, and deception. The production runs until October 15.

Celebrated playwright Neil LaBute’s The Shape Of Things peels back the skin of modern-day relationships to their very core, asking questions such as; How far would you go for love? For art? What would you be willing to change? What price might you pay? A 2003 film of the same name starred Hollywood’s funnyman Paul Rudd, Gretchen Mol, and Rachel Weisz. New York Times called it “A brilliant, startling dissection of cruelty and artistic creation.”

Directed by Ed Corsi, the play includes: Evelyn - Maggie Griffin Smith; Adam - Max Redman; Phillip - Khalil McMillan; and Jenny - Darby Pumphery.  Understudies include: Evelyn - Macy Jae Davis; Phillip - Tim Rinehart; Adam - Alan Stentiford; and Jenny - Meaghen Cutting.

Performances take place in the Eagle Theatre (208 Vine Street) in Hammonton, New Jersey on Wednesdays & Thursdays at 7:30pm; Friday & Saturdays at 8:00pm; and Saturday & Sundays 3:00pm matinees.

Patrons will get more than meets the eye with their admission ticket. In addition to the captivating production, audiences will gain access to Eagle Theatre’s onsite, pre-show, pop-up art exhibit. Each week of the run, a new artist or art organization will present their work; including Noyes Museum of Art of Stockton University, Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts, ArtC - South Jersey Artists, Perkins Center for the Arts, and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
