The Hole in the Wall Theater (HITW) in New Britain will welcome Central CT State University Professor Gil Gigliotti to lead a discussion after the Friday, November 20th production of Lysistrata by Aristophanes.
Dr. Gigliotti is a professor of English and Latin at Central Connecticut State University and the host of “Frank, Gil, and Friends” on Tuesday mornings on WFCS 107.7 FM New Britain. He earned his H.A.B. and M.A. degrees at Xavier University and his Ph.D. from The Catholic University of America. His books on Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra belie his academic interests in Greek and Roman writers, the American puritans, and the late 18th-century literary circle The Connecticut Wits.
HITW will present Lysistrata by Aristophanes in a sexy new translation by Sarah Ruden. Performances run Fridays & Saturdays from November 13 through December 5 at 8:00pm with one Sunday matinee on November 22 at 2:00pm. Lysistrata is under the direction of Rachel Teagle of New Haven. Tickets are $20.00 (General Admission) and $15.00 (students & seniors). They can be purchased at the door and online at www.hitw.org. The November 27th performance will be our Pay-What-You-Can performance where you name the price of your ticket. Lysistrata is funded in part with the support of the Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation.
