Assistant prof working as actor, dramaturg
Assistant professor of theater arts Kimberly Jannarone is working
as both an actor and a dramaturg in Ted Hughes's version of
Alcestis, an ancient Greek tragicomedy by Euripides that
tells the tale of a woman who takes her husband's place when
death comes for him.
The production is co-produced by Theater Emory, a professional
theater company associated with Emory University, and Out of
Hand Theater, a troupe that American Theater magazine
included in its recent article titled "Hot, Hip and on
the Verge: A Dozen Young American Companies You Need to Know."
Jannarone is in residence at Emory this fall as part of a faculty exchange program with the Emory Classics Department.
