Perspectives: ReEntry Performance
Join us for a special performance in recognition of Veteran’s Day with this unflinching look at the lives of Marines getting ready for, and returning from deployment. ReEntry is a docudrama exploration of the challenges faced when re-entering family, community, and country. Honest, moving, and surprisingly funny, this play is based entirely on interviews with Marines and their families. This performance will take place in our auditorium on a first come, first seated basis.
Included with museum admission; Free for members and UT students, faculty, and staff.
The Blanton is located at the intersection of Congress Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Paid parking is available in the Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Parking is $4; bring your ticket with you to the museum.
USMC Colonel and author of the best-selling Thieves of Baghdad, Matthew Bogdanos said, “Based on hundreds of hours of interviews with returning combat veterans and refreshingly presented without agenda or sub-text, ReEntry is a tour-de-force of loneliness, fear, and anger overlaid with moments of warmth, growth, and inspiration. In other words, ReEntry is like war itself: complex, layered, and visceral. It will resonate as much with those who have lived through the horrors of war as it will with those who have only ever seen war through the often sanitizing distance of reportage that can never truly capture the sights, the sounds, and the smells that remain long after the gunfire has ended.”
