2015 Peak Performances season.
According to the Peak Performances website, “What happens when you put Robert Wilson (and Samuel Beckett), Liz Gerring, The Builders Association (and The Wizard of Oz), Pat Graney, Fred Hersch and Mary Jo Salter, Shanghai Quartet, Nora Chipaumire, Ensemble Amarillis, Michel van der Aa (and Fernando Pessoa), Double Edge Theatre (and Marc Chagall) and Romeo Castellucci on the same stage? Peak Performances’ 2015 – 16 season, its most daring line-up to date. One headliner after another will transform the gorgeous and supremely adaptable Alexander Kasser Theater, turning it into a garden of earthly, unearthly, rousing, challenging, and just plain beautiful delights for the ear, eye, mind and soul.”
Tickets for the 2015 – 2016 season went on sale July 1, and there are some amazing performances to mark on your calendars. In September through October, the Builders Association will be performing Elements of Oz, followed by Rooms of Light by Fred Hersch and Mary Jo Salter in mid-October. In the winter, the Shanghai Quartet will be back in December for A Night in Ancient and New China as well as a second performance in May. These are only a handful of the great performances lined up throughout the year, so be sure to check out the calendar for a full schedule.
Food options are available on campus as well at the Red Hawk Diner that is open all night before or after the show. It is located on the far side of the campus. Another option for light refreshments after the shows is Cafe Diem, which now serves food from Au Bon Pain. It is located close to the Kasser Theater. The cafe is located next to the library, which is across from the theater, and the diner is just a short walk across campus.
Tickets for the shows are available at the box office located in the Alexander Kasser Theater or online at the Peak Performances website, peakperfs.org. Montclair undergraduate students are permitted one free ticket with their student ID. The Kasser Theater is located towards the front of campus next to the Red Hawk Parking Deck. Parking is available in the Red Hawk Deck as well as the Transit Parking Deck across campus. Public transportation that runs directly in front of the Kasser Theater is also available. If you are traveling in from the city, Peak Performances is now offering a Peak Bus. Peak Performances runs a charter bus service to and from Manhattan for all Saturday and Sunday performances, and tickets can be purchased along with your show tickets.
Take advantage of this lineup of amazing performances that are sure to start off one amazing season!
