stART goes to McCarter Theatre to see The Niceties

  • Barnes and Noble 100 Somerset Street New Brunswick, NJ 08901 (map)

Race. History. Power. Zoe, a black student at an Ivy League University, visits her white professor’s office hours to discuss her thesis about slavery’s effect on the American Revolution. In this riveting two-person drama, a polite clash in perspectives explodes into an urgent and dangerous contemporary debate. “Scintillating,” raves Peter Marks in the Washington Post. “The story of America, it seems, is destined to be wrestled over to the bitter end.” Kimberly Senior (Disgraced on Broadway) directs.

Cost: just $5 (includes ticket, lunch, and artist talk back)

Pick Up and Drop Off Location: Rutgers Barnes and Nobel, 100 Somerset Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
