DELRAY BEACH, FL: Princeton’s famous Triangle Club, the oldest touring collegiate musical-comedy troupe in the nation, will present its only South Florida performance on Thursday, February 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Crest Theater at Old School Square, located at 51 North Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach.
The Triangle Show brings a unique theatrical experience to a very few locations each year and South Florida and the Crest Theatre have been selected to host this one time only performance of the company’s 2017 125th anniversary tour. Greece’d Lightning! opened in Princeton this past November to rave reviews and sold-out houses. Audiences were unanimous in their praise – citing the show as “truly wonderful and one of the best shows they have done ever… Triangle’s professional quality of original song, dance, humor, and musical composition has risen to delightful heights.”
For this landmark 125th Anniversary edition of the Triangle show, it’s all Greek – when a can-do baker from Greece’s smallest city-state tries to win the world’s first ever Olympics! But how can she compete when her sponsor is the Ruler of the Dead; she’s falling for Zeus’ athlete; and sports haven’t even been invented? From Icarus’ flight to Oedipus’ bedroom, join the greatest cast of characters Western civilization has ever known. Ending with Triangle’s famous all-male kick-line, Greece’d Lightning! will “get you to drachma like it’s hot!”
For 125 years the Princeton Triangle Club has been creating professionally-produced, original student-written musicals in “The House that Triangle Built”, the renowned McCarter Theatre. In fact, The Princeton Triangle Club has the distinction of being the oldest touring (as well as the oldest co-ed) collegiate musical-comedy troupe in the United States, and the only co-ed collegiate troupe to take their show on a national tour each year.
The Triangle Club boasts a rich history and long list of alumni who have graduated to eminence in the creative arts, including F. Scott Fitzgerald ’17, Jimmy Stewart ’32, Jose Ferrer ’34, Wayne Rogers ’56, Clark Gesner ’60, Jeff Moss ’63, David Kelley ’79, Brooke Shields ’87, Wentworth Miller ’95, Ellie Kemper ’02, and Molly Ephraim ’08. The club’s seventy current members have diverse academic interests from astrophysics to economics, public policy to literature, and many plan on pursuing professional theater in some capacity.
Greece’d Lightning! offers audiences a one-time opportunity to see America’s most brilliant young minds and talents sing their hearts out and uphold a cherished musical tradition!
Greece’d Lightning! will be performed at the Crest Theatre at Old School Square on February 2nd at 7:30 pm only. Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for students; group rates are also available. The Crest Theatre at Old School Square is located at 51 North Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach (33444). Tickets may be purchased on line at www.triangleshow.com/tour-palm-beach/
