WILLIAMSTOWN -- The ‘62 Center for Theatre and Dance CenterSeries’ presents the Tiger Lillies’ "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner."
The Tiger Lillies defy easy categorization - part opera, gypsy punk, and old Paris - these masters of dark humor bring a music that plays in the intersection between offensive and delightful. Most well-known for the award winning "Shockheaded Peter," the Tiger Lillies, in collaboration with visual artist Mark Holthusen, guarantee a fresh perspective to the Samuel Taylor Coleridge classic.
The performance is one night only, Thursday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. on the ‘62 Center’s MainStage, 1000 Main St.
As with all CenterSeries productions, the ‘62 Center presents Integrated Programming to offer an academic context to the Tiger Lillies. The CenterSeries will continue its popular Cocktails and Context on Thursday, Oct. 24, at 6:30 p.m. in the CenterStage lobby.
Williamstown Theatre Festival Artistic Director Jenny Gersten and Williams College Theatre Department Chair David Eppel will host a discussion titled, "Macabre Musicals, Subversive Singing." There will be an open bar, and all Integrated Programming events are free and open to the public.
Tickets for the Oct. 25 performance are $3 with valid student ID and $10 for all others. For tickets, visit the Williams ‘62 Center Box Office Tuesday through Saturday, from 1 to 5 p.
