January 18 - February 12
NOMA's Lapis Center for the Arts
Directed by Shannon Sindelar
This modern riff on the classical morality play EVERYMAN sees the title character sent on a mission by Death to take stock of their life and worth. But Everybody today may not be Everybody tomorrow as the actor playing the role gets chosen by lottery each night.
Come and enjoy the first theatrical production in NOMA's beautiful new Lapis Center for the Arts.
