BROTHERS: Lincoln (Justin Williams, left) and Booth (Zennen Clifton, right) square off over the three-card monte table, as they prowl the terrains of power, identity, and brotherhood in Suzan-Lori Parks’ 2002 Pulitzer Prize-winning “Topdog/Underdog,” currently playing at Hamilton Murray Theater on the Princeton University campus.

“Topdog/Underdog,” by Suzan-Lori Parks, Pits Brother v. Brother; Theatre Intime, Black Arts Company Stage Award-Winning Drama

Donald Gilpin

A contemporary, urban throwback to the Biblical tale of Cain and Abel, Topdog/Underdog is the story of two African-American brothers, inauspiciously named Lincoln and Booth. They are haunted by their pasts and by their obsessions with the hustle game of three-card monte.

Three Reconfigured Pieces Featured In 2007 Season Opening Concert

The Richardson Chamber Players opened their 2007-08 season in Richardson Auditorium on Sunday afternoon with a concert entitled “Arrangements Have Been Made.” The title conjured up a myriad of possible interpretations, the most likely of which was that the program would be comprised of arrangements done specifically for the Players. Indeed, the ensemble of chamber players had selected three works by noted composers which were not arranged specifically for them, but which were reconfigured from other successful works. In two of these cases, the arrangements were done by the composer, and in the third, the arranger was a student and friend of the composer. In the current 21st century emphasis on environmental recycling, musical recycling does not sound like such a bad idea.
