Our Town Now at George Street Playhouse
Thornton Wilder's play "Our Town" is 100 years old. As with any classic, every generation interprets it anew. The George Street Playhouse has involved the entire city of New Brunswick in its new production, running through May 25. Director of Education Jim Jack has spearheaded the effort, dubbed "Hub City Our Town: A Celebration of the Arts & Community in New Brunswick." Dance, murals, a photo project, a film series, and a new interview-based play written by Jack, "Our Town Now," bring Wilder's play and its universal concerns straight into the 21st century.
