Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992
The play the Los Angeles Times calls “among the most durable artworks to emerge from the ashes of L.A.’s 1992 riots” approaches its subject matter unflinchingly through first-person accounts of the aftermath of the Rodney King police trial. Originally staged by playwright Anna Deavere Smith on Broadway and culled from interviews she spearheaded, the 12-person tour-de-force includes verbatim quotes from a number of people both on the scene and in the city during the tumultuous time, including congresswoman Maxine Walters, truck driver Reginald Denny, and an anonymous juror from the infamous trial.
Theatre at Grand Valley
The official theater of Grand Valley State University takes drama seriously. With a small student-to-faculty ratio and instructors who necessitate hands-on experience, the learning troupe produces plays that range from Urinetown: The Musical to Shakespearean tragedies. And the company's love for theatre in all its forms spills beyond the stage, too, with the Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival every fall celebrating Shakespearean values such as maintaining professionalism and a waxed goatee. The results of this immersion speak for themselves: alumni have gone on to work at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, stage manage MGM Grand in Las Vegas, appear in a BMW commercial, and write a book about improvising.
