Ionesco's singular vision is brought hysterically to life in his "anti-play" which is about, as Ionesco puts it, "something like the tragedy of language". "The Bald Soprano is both deeply subversive and riotously funny. I am excited to collaborate with my colleagues Susan Cox and Will Turbyne to bring Ionesco's absurdist masterpiece to dynamic and thrilling life", said director Kyle Lemieux. Lemieux continued, "it explores our individual and collective search for meaning in a contemporary landscape that offers only isolation. The Bald Soprano is as fresh, funny and unsettling today as it was when it premiered in 1950."
This will mark the first time The Bald Soprano has been seen as a mainstage production since 1967 when the play was directed by Professor Emeritus of Drama Judith French Kelly and was the second full production in the Drama Department's history.
