HACKETTSTOWN — Written by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Anne Occhiogrosso, Centenary Stage Company’s mainstage theatrical season continues in the Lackland Performing Arts Center with Reza’s 1998 Tony Award and 1996 Olivier Award winning comedy Art from February 16 through March 4. Centenary Stage Company’s Art is directed by nationally acclaimed Artistic Director, theatre director, dramaturge and acting coach, Anne Occhiogrosso. Occhiogrosso has worked with a broad spectrum of plays and scripts throughout her celebrated career but her primary focus has been the classical theater with a special emphasis on the works of William Shakespeare. She co-founded the American Players Theatre with Randall Duk Kim and Charles Bright in 1979, where she directed 16 Shakespearean productions including Hamlet, The Tempest, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of Venice. Along with the works of Shakespeare, she has directed Goldoni’s The Servant of Two Masters, Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, Chekhov’s The Bear, The Wedding, Swan Song and performed the role of Madam Arkadina in The Seagull. She co-directed Moliere’s Tartuffe and Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex with Mr. Kim and performed the roles of Dorine and Jocasta, opposite Mr. Kim, respectively. She has studied with Morris Carnovsky and Phoebe Brand and performed the role of Anna Petrovna in a production of Chekhov’s Ivanov. Occhiogrosso has taught acting at the Stella Adler Conservatory of Acting and the New York Shakespeare Festival and has been a guest instructor for schools throughout the country, including Centenary University. She continues to teach acting and coach individuals for auditions, character development and script analysis for film, television and theater. With an impressive collective resume of film, television, Broadway and regional credits Centenary Stage Company’s all-star cast features classical theatre giant Randall Duk Kim, broadway veteran Kevin Carolan and CSC’s very own award winning Artistic Director Carl Wallnau.
