The Loukia and Michael Zampelas Art Museum does not only open up a world of art to us, it also hosts musical performances from time to time and becomes a stage for theatre productions.
Until March 27, the museum will be staging performances of the Broadway play Two for the Seesaw written by American playwright and novelist William Gibson.
The romantic drama, which will be performed on Fridays and Saturdays at 8.30pm and on Sundays at 6.30pm, is about Jerry Ryan, a lawyer from Nebraska who has recently separated from his wife. To escape it all, he has moved to a shabby apartment in New York. Here he takes long walks at night to come to terms with his divorce, which has been filed but not finalised.
It doesn’t take long for love to come knocking at his door once again, after Ryan meets a struggling dancer named Gittel Mosca. Even though they see things very differently and come from different backgrounds, they decide to move in together.
Things don’t go smoothly and Ryan soon discovers that, even though he is divorced from his ex-wife on paper, they still share a strong bond. It is this bond that takes him back to Nebraska.
The original Broadway production of the play ran for 750 performances, with Henry Fonda and Anne Bancroft. A film version was made in 1962, starring Robert Mitchum and Shirley MacLaine.
