Theatre Must-See: January 2016

Via D New RepNew Rep Theatre: Via Dolorosa (David Hare)

David Hare’s 1997 monologue about his visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories is humorous, urgent, and moving. I highly recommend you go see it over at the Arsenal Center for the Arts. For details about location and tickets, visit the New Rep website. You can read my review of the show here.
