At the conclusion of the evening show, Molodi will be available for a “meet and greet” with autographs and pictures. Admission to the evening show will be free with valid UF identification.

Hearts Like Fists 7:30 pm
Hearts Like Fists @ Powell Grimm Theatre at the Egner Center for the Performing Arts
Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm
The University of Findlay Theatre Program in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts will close its 2015-2016 season with “Hearts Like Fists,” a “superhero noir comedy” by Adam Szymkowicz and directed by Christopher Matsos, assistant professor of theatre at UF. The performances are at 7:30 p.m. April 13, 14, 15 and 16; and 2 p.m. April 17 at UF’s Powell Grimm Theatre at the Egner Center for the Performing Arts. In the play, the vengeful Doctor X is injecting sweethearts throughout New York City with a lethal poison. The Crimefighters, a dynamic team of superheroines, seek to thwart him, while their newest member, Lisa, hopes for a life of meaning. Meanwhile, Peter’s broken heart brings him close to death, but he has created an ingenious artificial replacement that will never break. Can the Crimefighters stop Doctor X? Do Lisa and Peter have a chance at love? And who is the mysterious girl with a face like a plate? “Hearts Like Fists” closes a season of exclusively contemporary plays, each inspired by a unique literary heritage. Lauren Gunderson’s “The Taming,” produced in September, took Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew” as its foundation, while Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s “Abigail/1702,” staged in November, was a spiritual sequel to Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.” “Our goal this year was to find newer plays which subvert expectations about the dramas that inspire them,” Matsos said. “I think students and community members will appreciate the ways in which Hearts Like Fists pokes fun at, but also pays homage to, the popular superhero genre.” The cast includes: Tabitha Kittle, Abbey Bumbledare, Adrianna Powell, Michael Knight, Allison Dilbone, Abby Land, Rachel Coberley, Donovan Callahan, and Brady Corns. Tickets are on sale at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts’ box office, 200 W. Main Cross St., by calling 419-423-2787, by visiting marathoncenterarts.org, and at the door. Prices are $5 general admission, $3 students and senior citizens, and free for UF faculty, staff, and students. For more information, call 419-434-4562 or email matsos@findlay.edu.
