On Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 7:30PM at Richardson Auditorium, the Princeton University Ballet and Penguin Cafe will present Cole Porter's "Within the Quota," a production under the directorship of Professor Simon Morrison. This pantomime-ballet reacts to the United States' immigration policies, as they were at the time of the work's composition (1920s), and as they stand under the current administration. Porter's music will be performed live by the London-based Penguin Cafe, after they perform selections from their most recent album, "The Imperfect Sea." The backdrops for this production have been created by students from the Stuart Country Day School.

Admission is $25, $5 students. For tickets call 609-258-9220 or visit
