The Theatre School at DePaul University
  • The Theatre School at DePaul University trains students to the highest level of professional skill and artistry in an inclusive and diverse conservatory setting. The Theatre School at DePaul University presents two world premiere productions: Michael Jordan in Lilliput by Mickle Maher, directed by Erica Weiss and Mrs. Phu’s Cleansing Juices (And Also Salads) by Emily L. Witt, directed by Krissy Vanderwarker. (Michael Jordan In Lilliput) What happens when the tiny inhabitants of a secluded island seek to join the developed world and form a basketball team? When one of their players, a down-at-heel American journeyman named Michael Jordan (not the Michael Jordan), won't shoot or pass the ball, he ensures a losing season for his vertically-challenged team. Playing out entirely in the Q and A format of post-game conferences, Michael Jordan in Lilliput combines the fantastical with the mundane and the expansive with the irrelevant. (Mrs. Phu’s Cleansing Juices) Entering Mrs. Phu's means crossing a gauntlet of steadfast Reaganites and pro-lifers. Just on the other side of the trenches lies a world where a waiter wrangles eccentric customers, a hippie lady floats aimlessly, and three very different women gather to receive abortions under the constraints of stringent federal mandates. Recommended for mature audiences. (Michael Jordan in Lilliput) May 5-14, 2017 Previews are on May 4 and 5 at 7:30 PM. (Mrs. Phu’s Cleansing Juices) May 19-27, 2017 Previews are on May 17 and 18 at 7:30 PM. Performances are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2 PM.
