Well Done Mitzi Cast!

Congratulations to the cast of Mitzi's Abortion. Three nights, three standing ovations, and a terrific review in the Ithacan. Thanks for making AWITC look so good.   And now, onward and upward towards our Spring Showcases.


Mitzi's Abortion (A Saint's Guide to Late-Term Politics and Medicine in America) by Elizabeth Heffron  

With humor, intelligence and honesty, Mitzi's Abortion explores the questions that have shaped the national debate over abortion, and reminds us that whatever we may think we believe, some decisions are neither easy nor simple when they become ours to make.  This play is a generous and compassionate comedy with serious themes about a young woman trying to make an intensely personal decision in a system determined to make it a political one.  For more info about the play, check out this Ithaca Times article.

This show will run February 16 at 7:30pm, February 17 at 8pm and February 18 at 8pm. All performances take place at Risley Theatre, Cornell University. Tickets $15 general and $10 for students and seniors; please call Ticket Center Ithaca 273.4497. Any tickets not sold through Ticket Center will be sold at the Risley Theatre box office on the evening of the show for $20.

Please note there is a nominal handling fee for tickets sold through Ticket Center.  Follow this link to purchase tickets online.  However, we recommend you call as the Ticket Center fee is higher if you purchase online.

This show is being directed by C.A. Teitelbaum and stars Dayna Joan, Darryle Johnson, Kristin Sad, Dan Taylor, Deirdre Martin, Alek Osinski and Ria Burns-Wilder.
