Meadows Theatre season opens with Black Snow Oct. 1-5, 2014

Black Snow 2For its first main stage production of 2014-15, Meadows Theatre presents Black Snow by Mikhail Bulgakov, adapted by Keith Reddin.

Often called the ultimate backstage novel, Black Snow displays the autobiographical and satirical components of Bulgakov’s experience with the Moscow Art Theatre. Based on Bulgakov’s relationship with famed director and inventor of Method acting Constantin Stainslavsky, Black Snow brings the writer’s struggle against censorship and autocrats to life through black comedy.

The Meadows production is directed by Blake Hackler, professor of theatre in Meadows School of the Arts.  As an actor, Blake has appeared in productions on and Off-Broadway, as well as in regional theaters throughout the country. As a teacher, Hackler currently holds faculty positions at Yale University and SMU.

Black Snow will run in the Greer Garson Theatre, Owen Arts Center, from Wednesday, Oct. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 5. Tickets are $7 for faculty, staff and students. A full cast and crew list can be found below.
