In honor of Denison alumnus, friend, and benefactor, Michael Eisner ’64, the Department of Theatre will celebrate and inaugurate its new home in the Michael D. Eisner Center for the Performing Arts with BoJack Horseman, a stage adaptation of the acclaimed and complex Netflix animated series, produced by Michael Eisner Productions and the Tornante Company. Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, BoJack Horseman is regularly ranked among the very best shows on television.

Ian Crouch described the series as “a comedy about an anthropomorphic talking horse” who starred in a family sitcom in the eighties and nineties called ‘Horsin’ Around’… and now lives the dissipated life of a show-biz washout in Los Angeles.” “BoJack,” he writes, “is a silly show that is also deeply, unshakably sad,” praised by critics “for the way it blends fast-paced absurdist comedy with unexpected depth” of character and purpose (“‘BoJack Horseman’ and the Comedy of Despair,” The New Yorker 8/14/2015).

Denison’s stage Bojack Horseman focuses on a moment of crisis between two old friends, struggling to understand one another, midway through the series’ third season. BoJack Horseman, adapted from the episode “Best Thing That Ever Happened,” by Kate Purdy, will be directed and adapted for the stage by Mark Evans Bryan ’96, Chair of the Department of Theatre, and will be our first production on the Sharon Martin Hall stage.

This production contains adult language and topics.
