Theatre VCU serves up professional-quality productions of beloved shows, passionately acted and staged by VCU students. Veteran TV and movie actor Casey Biggs helms the production of the Tony-winning The Elephant Man, telling the tale of the titular, deformed John Merrick as he struggles to express his sensitive soul despite his frightening appearance and propensity to enthusiastically show off his collection of handmade knives. Beautiful period costumes plunge audiences headfirst into the appearance-obsessed world of 1880s London while live cello accompaniment lends the show a backdrop of haunting melodies. The stage’s centerpiece—a 100-pound cathedral that hangs over the action—contrasts with the irregular angles and warped construction of the set, evoking the tension between Merrick’s appearance and personality and the crushing terror of living beneath an inexplicably floating stone building.

Though Theatre VCU offers discounts for students and seniors, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for most customers.

Theatre VCU

Theatre VCU has worked toward two goals: to help create a new generation of theater artists, and to ensure the tanks on their applause-powered generators stay full. Young performers along with costume, scenic, and lighting designers, and stage managers hone their crafts and nurture their talents. And, they manage to create some pretty terrific art that has become a great community resource for entertainment.
