Educational Theater of New York is presenting "The Gioconda Smile" by Aldous Huxley, especially designed for students of English as a Second Language. The story is adapted in short scenes, after each scene is presented the action stops and the Presenter engages the students in a conversation about the issues they just saw, then the students have the opportunity to ask the scene to be repeated for further understanding or to continue to the next.
After the play is completed the students can ask questions to the characters about their actions during the play.
ETNY empowers the students to be in control for their understanding, pre and post-performance lesson plans could be found at http://www.etnyarts.org.
The play opens Tuesday November 5 at 10 am, Wednesday Nov. 6 at 6:30 pm, Thursday Nov. 7 at 10 am and 6:30 pm, Friday Nov. 8 at 10 am, Monday Nov. 11 at 10 am and 6:30 pm, and Tuesday Nov. 12 at 10 am.
