Hippodrome Mainstage Archives



October 15 - November 9 2014
by Allison Moore
Directed by: Lauren Caldwell

"An insider’s view of the horror-movie genre...It’s a job well done!" —San Francisco Examiner

"An offbeat comedy laugh fest of clever puns and pokes and winks at a genre of films we love to hate."Mike Sanford, Art & About

A Florida Premiere! This uproarious comedy will have you screaming with laughter and surprise! Alfred Hitchcock started the slasher genre with the classic film Psycho in 1960, and since then hundreds of horror films have sent thrills down our spines each Halloween, including Friday the 13th, A Nightmare of Elm Street, and Scream. The Hipp is well known for staging the area’s best Halloween-themed productions, and this Halloween comedy takes you behind-the-scenes of a Hollywood slasher movie.

by Bruce Norris
Directed by: Ralf Remshardt

"Hilariously funny! A master class in comic writing and playing." —New Yorker

Clybourne Parkis a great piece of writing brought vividly to life by a skilled and committed group of performers."Bryan Faux, Alligator

"What makes Clybourne Park such a pleasure to watch is the easy ability of this capable cast to reverse roles "Ron Cunningham, Gainesville Sun

The Hippodrome partners with the University of Florida School of Theatre and Dance on this landmark co-production. Clybourne Park is a wickedly funny, entertainingly provocative, and fiercely intelligent play about race, real estate, and the volatile values of each, and won nearly every honor the theatre has to offer, including the Olivier Award, the Evening Standard Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. Broadway’s hottest ticket will have all of Gainesville talking!
