Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) has partnered with Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre (CityRep) to present screenings of National Theatre Live (NTL) performances in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater. The next broadcast is an exhilarating reinvention of George Bernard Shaw’s witty, provocative classic “Man and Superman” Sunday, Apr. 17, 6:00 p.m., starring well-known actor and Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes as Jack Tanner.
Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary.
Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his.
A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, “Man and Superman” asks fundamental questions about how we live.
Tickets for this showing may be purchased online at tickets.occc.edu or by phone at (405) 682-7579. Tickets will be $15 for adults and $5 for students and children. Tickets are also available for the screening of “A Streetcar Named Desire” which will be broadcast on Sunday, May 15 at 6:00 p.m.
Oklahoma City Community College opened the doors to the 1,049-seat Visual and Performing Arts Center Theater in early 2014. It features a large atrium with three-story high windows, state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment and will allow the college to host larger Broadway-style touring productions. The Visual and Performing Arts Center also houses an art gallery and academic center featuring a rehearsal room, library, six classrooms, seven studios, seven labs and faculty offices.
