Hamilton’s 4th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day dinner theatre featured a sold-out presentation of Our Lady of 121st Street by Stephen Adly Guirgis. Directed byAssociate Professor of Theatre Mark Cryer, the M-Theatre production is dedicated to providing theatrical works that will both challenge and reaffirm the campus' many perspectives on race, religion and gender. Tuesday's show is a sell-out but seats remain for Wednesday, Jan. 19, in the Fillius Events Barn.
Our Lady is told through a series of snapshots into the lives of a diverse cast of characters, who are all connected by their childhood memories of the late Sister Rose. When her body mysteriously disappears from the funeral home, it becomes apparent that more is coming out of the woodwork on 121st Street than those whose lives Rose influenced.
