Final Days to See Ibsen’s Magical “Peer Gynt”

These are the final days to see the Department of Drama and Dance‘s production of Henrik Ibsen’s epic Peer Gynt, directed by Marta Rainer, through April 17, 2016, at the Joan and Donald Schaeffer Black Box Theater. Sweeping adventure, heartbreaking romance, madmen, trolls, and the Devil himself all make an appearance in Peer Gynt, about a lovable rogue (played by senior Jack Saleeby) who spends his life roaming around the world in an attempt to be somebody, anybody, except himself. Challenging the limits of theatrical convention, Peer Gynt is a feast for the eyes, the ears, and the heart.
