Join us for a one-of-a-kind experience as this landmark theatrical experiment plunges into the JCC swimming pool. Written by Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaikin, this surreal, deeply moving mediation on life and death spans cultural legacies and generation boundaries as it explores questions that unite humanity at life's end. Tongues is a two-person tour de force that melds voice, percussion, movement, and water in a way unlike anything you have experienced before.
Show times are
Saturday, April 20 8PM
Sunday, April 21 6PM
Saturday, April 27 8PM
Sunday, April 28 6PM
Directed byAdam Roberts; Featuring Eric Ferguson and Michael Arnold
Be sure to bring your swimsuit and join us in the pool -- yes, the production will be staged in the J's (heated) swimming pool, and we want to see you there! There will be plenty of deck seating for the hydrophobic (and all audience members under age 18), so fear not if "water viewing" isn't your style. On the other hand, how many times in life will you be able to tell someone, "I went to the theater last night -- and experienced it from inside a pool!?"
Tickets $15 - $18. To reserve your tickets, call Amy Minor at (512) 735-8050 or visit
