There have been some questions about the social hour prior to HLT's Second Stage productions of 'ART'. Since the show has no intermission, we'll be affording this opportunity for patrons to come to the theatre at 6:30 and enjoy some music provided by Beth Norris, Beth Packer and Margaret Pennell. We'll also have some appetizers, an assortment of drinks, and the general atmosphere of a gallery opening. The food and drink options are not part of your $12.00 ticket price. After the show, we'll have a talk-back session with the cast. These sessions can be a wonderful addition to a thought-provoking show like 'ART'....especially for those who enjoy discussions about interpretations, etc. Our cast includes: Rhett Pennell, Blake Smith, and David Mycoff. A wonderful group of actors! 

Because the director feels that it is important to present this play as written, there might be language some people find problematic.  Part of the 2nd Stage experience is to present theatrical works that challenge us to think about relationships, historical events, love and life as the playwrite wanted it to be shared. Language is a significant part of that experience.
