Art, manipulation, love: “The Shape of Things”

Colorado Mesa University will close its 2014-15 theatre arts season with Neil LaBute’s The Shape of Things. In a modern version of Adam’s seduction by Eve, The Shape of Things pits awkward Adam against experienced Evelyn. After a chance meeting, Evelyn and Adam embark on an intense relationship that causes Adam to go to extraordinary lengths to improve his appearance and character. The play is rated PG-13 for adult content.

The Shape of Things will be directed by David Cox. The play will be Cox’s last show with the theatre program as he is retiring after 37 years at CMU as a professor of theatre. Audience members will remember his immense talent as a scenographer and many will be able to recall their favorite set designs over the years. Also retiring this spring is theatre professor and costumer Heather Waggoner. Waggoner joined CMU’s theatre program in the fall of 1995.

The Shape of Things runs April 15–18 at 7:30pm in the Moss Performing Arts Center’s Robinson Theatre. Rush night for the CMU community is April 15. On that evening, tickets are $5 for faculty and staff and $4 for students. Audience members will receive one specially priced ticket per MAVcard presented at the box office on the day of the rush performance.

Regular tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, faculty/staff, and $6 for students. Tickets for The Shape of Things are available online or at the box office by calling 970.248.1604.
