Picture from 1965 rehearsal of A Man of All Seasons

This week we’re throwing it back to a 1965 photograph from Villanova Theatre rehearsals for A Man of All Seasons. Pictures from this production and many more can be found at Falvey’s virtual and in-person exhibit, “Be Not Afraid of Greatness: Celebrating the History of Villanova Theatre.” You can check out the full exhibit here.

Despite not being able to put on in person shows this semester, Villanova’s Theatre Department is resilient and back at it again with “Festival of Dionysus – BAKKHAI VARIATIONS,” running from Oct. 12-Nov. 14. Villanova Theatre commissioned five MA in Theatre alumni to write short plays in response to the classic tragedy. 

Artistic Director Michael Hollinger shared with Kimberly Reilly, Director of Marketing & Public Relations, Villanova Theatre, “…The extraordinary constraints placed upon public performance by the Coronavirus have led us to some surprising and exciting solutions that, quite honestly, feel more like opportunities than fallback positions.”
