To become as time -honored and established as WALNUT STREET
THEATRE is no easy feat. The theatre, which boasts over 200 years
of operation as the oldest theatre in America, has seen its fair share of history through the bright lights that shine down on their world-renowned stage. WALNUT STREET THEATRE will continue their historic legacy when they appear as part of the Theatre Series at Wharton Center.
Tickets to see WALNUT STREET THEATRE are available at the official source to purchase Wharton Center tickets online, whartoncenter.com , at the Auto - Owners Insurance Ticket Office, or by calling 1 - 800 - WHARTON.
WALNUT STREET THEATRE will pump new life into David Mamet’s hit show , A Life in the Theatre, when they grace the Wharton Center stage this February . The play , which chronicles the struggle of an older, veteran actor and a newcomer on the scene , mirrors the same pulsing rhythm and quick dialogue of Mamet’s other hits, Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed - the - Plow. From rehearsals to reprisals, from ego trips to acting tips, this comedy c performance will speak volumes on the themes of generational differences and the nasty draw of the spotlight. Though the language may not be suitable for children under 15, the portrayals by the two actors will resonate through the bright comedy and quick - witted writing that has become a staple of Mamet’s professional repertoire.
The history surrounding WALNUT STREET THEATRE has definitely been legendary. From trial runs of a Streetcar Named Desire with Marlon Brando , to molding future stars like Katharine Hepburn, Sidney Poitier, Lauren Bacall, and Robert Redford , WALNUT STREET THEATRE has kept the flames of theatre burning for almost 200 years. This profound theatrical history will continue when A Life in the Theatre takes the stage in East Lansing, creating a one - of - a - kind, can’t - be - missed experience.
