L.A. Theatre's "The Rivalry" comes to BYU

The Brigham Young University Performing Arts Series presents “The Rivalry” performed by L.A. Theatre Works on February 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

“The Rivalry,” Norman Corwin’s riveting depiction of the Lincoln-Douglas debates, uses dialogue from the original debate transcripts to bring to life the fierce competition between the future President and the incumbent Senator as they tackled the day’s most controversial issues–slavery and the American concept of freedom.

Under the leadership of Producing Director Susan Albert Loewenberg, L.A. Theatre Works (LATW) has been the foremost radio theater company in the United States for more than two decades. LATW has single-handedly brought the finest recorded dramatic literature into the homes of millions of people.

Tickets are $18-22 ($7 off with BYU or student ID, $3 off for senior citizens or BYU alumni) and available in the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at
