80 Minutes Around the World
The Misericordia University College of Arts and Sciences will present "80 Minutes Around the World," a once-in-a-lifetime event that takes audience members on an 80-minute trip around five continents as eight storytellers each share their immigration experiences.
The show combines award-winning performers including Nestor Gomez (show creator), Adam Wade (Magnet Theater, NYC) and John Gebretatose (HUGE Theater, Minneapolis) with regional and local storytellers who are first- and second-generation immigrants and refugees.
The show will tour through Luzerne and Lackawanna counties with 4 performances:
- Misericordia University's Lemmond Theatre on April 28 at 7:30 p.m. and April 29 at 12:30 p.m.
- F.M. Kirby Center on April 29 at 7:30 p.m.
- Scranton Cultural Center on April 30 at 7:30 p.m.
All shows are free and open to the public
This show is the culmination of The Voices Project: Immigration, a year-long visual and storytelling arts project conducted at Misericordia University.
