September 3 - September 28

CLYBOURNE PARK at The Hipp.  The Hippodrome partners with the University of Florida School of Theatre and Dance on this landmark co-production. Clybourne Park is a wickedly funny, entertainingly provocative, and fiercely intelligent play about race, real estate, and the volatile values of each, and won nearly every honor the theatre has to offer, including the Olivier Award, the Evening Standard Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. Broadway’s hottest ticket will have all of Gainesville talking!
Content Advisory: Strong language, mature content.
