University Theatre presents 'Really Really' in March

University Theatre presents “Really Really” by Paul Downs Colaizzo and directed by Lecturer Laura Lippman.

“Really Really” premiered at The Signature Theatre in Arlington, Va., in 2012 and ran Off-Broadway in a 2013 production directed by David Cromer.

“It’s exciting to work on material that is so current.” Lippman said. “The language reflects the audience that is going to come and see it. It’s perfect for a college campus—the play speaks to that generation.”

The play focuses on what the writer, and others, have dubbed “Generation Me.”
