All tickets for the Texas Theatre and Dance 2020/2021 Season are pay-what-you-can with a minimum donation of $5.00.

Texas Theatre and Dance 2020/2021 Season: sad women being sad


Written and Co-Directed by Jenny Krick 

Co-Directed by Andrea L. Hart


This lyrical play explores what it means to be sad and a woman in this world through the lens of the Greek tragedy, The Trojan Women. Examining trauma, mental health, violence and the internet's role in these things, sad women being sad asks the larger question of how and if we can separate the artist from their art. Be prepared for a comedy!   


April 1 at 7:30 p.m. (CST)

April 3 at 7:30 p.m. (CST) 

Due to recent inclement weather in the Austin area and the subsequent closure of the university, performances of sad women being sad have been delayed. Any tickets purchased for performances during the originally scheduled dates (Mar. 5-7) will still be valid for the new performance dates (April 1, 3). If you are no longer able to attend and would like to request a refund, please email us directly here



In an effort to promote accessibility, all Texas Theatre and Dance performances in the 2020/2021 Season will be available at pay-what-you-can pricing with a minimum donation of $5.00.


ABOUT UTNT (UT New Theatre)  

UTNT (UT New Theatre) presents newly developed works from playwrights of Texas Theatre and Dance and Michener Center for Writers. Now in its 14th season, this showcase exists as an incubator for new work, with many plays continuing on to be professionally produced across the country. Presented in two parts, UTNT (UT New Theatre) presents work on the cutting edge of the American Stage. 




Texas Theatre and Dance is pleased to present a truly unique 2020/2021 Season to meet these exceptional and unprecedented times. The power of theatre transcends the stage through a collection of digital performances, including a powerful exploration of social justice through contemporary dance, heartbreaking stories of loss across the border, an investigation of humanity and technology through movement and a series of all-new works presented as part of UTNT (UT New Theatre). 

In addition, Texas Theatre and Dance is a proud participant of The JUBILEE, a year-long, nationwide theatre festival featuring work generated by those who have traditionally been excluded – including, but not limited to artists of color, Native American and Indigenous and First Nations artists, women, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists, LGBTQIA2+ artists, Deaf artists and artists with disabilities. 

Above all, we are committed to the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and audiences. Due to the uncertain nature of our current times, all performances dates, times and presentation details may be subject to change. We plan to offer clear and frequent communication regarding updates related to performances and our plans to ensure safety for our shared community.

Thank you for your continued support of Texas Theatre and Dance.
