In a New York borough fanatically obsessed with staying fresh, current and on the most cutting edge while simultaneously
reveling in all things retro, it's only fitting Rhinoceros, Eugene Ionesco's wildly popular 1959 play, take center stage for
a dramatic new production. Originally written as a response and criticism of the upsurge of Communism and Fascism preceding
World War II, Rhinoceros explores themes of conformity, culture, mass movements, philosophy and morality, issues as salient
today as they were when they were then. Visit StubHub to get your Rhinoceros
tickets to this timeless story of individuality and the indomitable struggle for personal expression.
Belonging to the school of drama known as "Theatre of the Absurd," Rhinoceros pushes the boundaries of imagination and
what a play can do while grounding audiences in very real, penetrating topics. Rhinoceros is a story of what can happen when
the masses blindly follow a path of conformity and slowly lose their identity and individuality, increasingly becoming more
like rhinoceroses and less like people. The fight for personal expression that existed then is still being fought today, making
Ionesco's play a timeless story relevant to any audience. Purchase Rhinoceros play

Rhinoceros has been hailed by critics for half a century as a penetrating piece of satire, and its enduring thematic elements
have inspired audiences for years. The latest production of Rhinoceros is heralded for demonstrating an illuminating and insightful
approach to Ionesco's celebrated play, artfully staging astonishing moments of blocking and movement in a staging that equally
showcases the haunting beauty of Ionesco's words and his singular vision for the stage. Few other playwrights and no other
plays can compare to the haunting yet compassionate piece of drama that is Rhinoceros, and when it hits the stage in Brooklyn,
it's sure to cause a stampede.
New Yorkers will get a rare treat when Eugene Ionesco's absurdist classic, Rhinoceros, takes to the stage at the Brooklyn
Academy of Music's Howard Gilman Opera House. In a town flooded with some of the best theater productions in the world, it's
hard to shine among the stars, but Rhinoceros sets itself apart with its sharp acting, crisp direction and evocative themes.
Critics and audiences agree this latest iteration of Rhinoceros is as powerful and incisive as ever, and anyone who loves
theater should see this show. Check out StubHub for Brooklyn
Academy of Music tickets to see Rhinoceros storm the stage!
It happens inexplicably: One by one, a man's friends and neighbors turn into rhinoceroses, reducing the town to a decimated,
grey wasteland. In this brilliant restaging of Eugène Ionesco's absurdist allegory Rhinoceros, loneliness and horror plague
anyone who resists a popular movement in which civilians succumb to the collective in its most monstrous, destructive form.
Rhinoceros was and remains a fierce indictment of 20th-century totalitarianism, and this latest staging retains the original
sting amid today's ideological climate. Get your theater
tickets at StubHub for this truly inspired play.
