Dog Days Presented in Association with PROTOTYPE
It’s a story of a struggling midwestern family and the stray they allow to hang around their front porch. But don’t be fooled. This isn’t a tale of bucolic innocence. For one thing, the setting is a near-future post-apocalypse where food is even scarcer than mirth. For another, that shaggy creature on the porch isn’t a dog at all, but a man driven by desperation and madness to play the part. He fills a void in the life of the lonely 13-year-old protagonist, and receives scraps of rancid food in return. But the longer the family allows this delusion to play out, the emptier their pantry grows—and the closer they get to a psychotic break of their own.
Based on Judy Budnitz’s 1998 short story of the same name, the opera Dog Days is unforgiving in both its topic and its tone. Composer David T. Little and his eight-piece ensemble Newspeak meld classical music and heavy metal into a fusion the New York Times called “a taut, nuanced work that clawed beneath the surface of every situation.” Tony-nominated soprano Lauren Worsham adds to the intensity as the teenage Lisa, desperate to believe in performance artist John Kelly’s dog-man Prince.
NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts
NYU sits at the center of the creative fondue pot that is Greenwich Village, but it spent its first 172 years without a full-scale, professional performance space. That finally changed in 2003 with the opening of the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. Embracing the artistic spirit of its neighborhood, the center's 860-seat proscenium theater hosts everything from student productions to innovative performance groups from around the world.
