There’s a war in heaven, God is dying, and he’s taking the universe with him: this is the premise of José Rivera’s 1993 Obie-Award-winning play, Marisol. The story of a young woman from the Bronx, Marisol is rich with the promise and the disappointments not only of life in New York, but of life itself—a life that, in the play at least, always seems to be mysteriously marked by the transcendent. One of the most important American plays of the past two decades, Marisol will be directed by New Yorker Saheem Ali. Sponsored by Barnard College Department of Theatre/Columbia University Major in Drama and Theatre Arts.
