Curious Show Graphics 1080X1080

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Play!

This Broadway smash hit takes you inside the mind of Christopher, an exceptionally intelligent 15-year-old boy on the autism spectrum. Now, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion of killing his neighbor’s dog, Wellington, with a garden fork. Determined to find the true culprit, Christopher carefully records each fact of the crime. Ultimately, his detective work takes him on a deeply personal quest that upturns his world.

“Dazzling, pulse-pounding and remarkable.”
- Time Out New York

Frida Show Graphics 1080X1080

Frida … A Self Portrait

Set on the eve of Frida Kahlo’s death, this intimate show plunges into the brilliant, nuanced world of Kahlo’s tumultuous, extraordinary life. Writer and performer Vanessa Severo cracks open a powerful portal between herself and the celebrated Mexican painter, bringing breathtaking physicality and raw honesty to this stunningly creative production.

“Colorful and imaginative … a deeply affecting drama that leaves an ineradicable imprint.”
–The Pitch

Hedwig Show Graphics 1080X1080

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Brilliantly innovative, heartbreaking, and wickedly funny, this genre-bending, fourth-wall-smashing musical sensation tells the story of one of the most unique characters to ever hit the stage. Hedwig, a German emigrant, is out to set the record straight about her life, her loves, and the operation that left her with that “angry inch.” Part rock concert, part cabaret, part stand-up comedy routine, this one-of-a-kind musical proves time and again that an indomitable spirit can’t ever be tied down.

“This glam rock concert musical delivers the goods — it’s a kickass testament to self-acceptance.”
–BroadwayWorld

Chad Deity Show Graphics 1080X1080

The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity

Pulitzer Prize finalist 2010, winner of the Obie for Best New American Play 2011, winner of the National Latino Playwriting Award 2008, winner of the NYT Outstanding Playwright Award 2011

This comic powerslam of a play tackles racism and geopolitics through drop-kicking humor and the thrilling spectacle of pro wrestling. Macedonio “The Mace” Guerra is a “jobber” — the guy who loses to make the champions look good. Hoping for his ticket to the big time, he partners with a charismatic, trash-talking Indian kid from Brooklyn, who’s the perfect foil to help him take on the all-American champ, Chad Deity. But the rivalry is used to exploit racial stereotypes in the name of ratings and all three men find themselves fighting for much more than the championship title.

“[Chad Deity] has the delicious crackle and pop of a galloping, honest-to-God, all-American satire.”
–The New York Times

Gem Show Graphics 1080X1080

August Wilson’s Gem of the Ocean

An iconic story of freedom, justice, and salvation from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Fences.

Pittsburgh, 1904: Amidst boiling racial tensions, Citizen Barlow arrives at the home of Aunt Ester, a 285-year-old healer, who helps him seek redemption from a mistake that’s cost another man his life. She sends Citizen on a powerful, mystical journey to the City of Bones in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean — where he must understand the past in order to forge his own future.

“A swelling battle hymn of transporting beauty.”
–The New York Times

Emma Show Graphics 1080X1080

Emma

From the acclaimed playwright of Bedlam’s Sense & Sensibility!

Beautiful, rich, vain, and irrepressibly witty, Emma has just discovered her newest “project” — finding a match for the sweet, but modest, Harriet Smith. But her best-laid plans are turned upside down when her subjects won’t cooperate. Kate Hamill’s newest Austen adaptation brings her upbeat, contemporary lens to this iconic romantic story of love’s confusion. A fresh, fast-paced take on Austen’s headstrong heroine, this screwball comedy packs a moving punch, with surprises aplenty.

“Hamill’s joyous, lovingly painted adaptations of cherished romances are everything fans of these novels could possibly hope for ... She has proven herself a master of this craft.”
–TheaterPizazz

Young Show Graphics 1080X1080

Young Americans

A world premiere commission by Lauren Yee, the acclaimed playwright of Cambodian Rock Band.

With David Bowie blaring from a mixtape, Young Americans takes us on two identical road trips, 20 years apart. An exhaustingly upbeat father and his stressed out college-aged daughter drive cross-country from DC to Portland; a journey that mirrors the one he took decades earlier as a new immigrant full of fresh hopes and dreams. This intimate comedy veers back and forth in time, as Yee explores what home and belonging mean to those in transition.

Yee’s work has been hailed as “gleefully irreverent,” “whip-smart and very funny,” “wildly inventive,” and “courageous.”

Hair Show Graphics 1080X1080

Hair

Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, 2009
Tony Award nomination for Best Musical, 1969 

Don’t miss the sensational rock musical that gave voice to the joyous spirit and raging rebellion of the 1960s! More than fifty years later, the show still resounds with a spectacular cry for lifting up our collective voices. A group of young, idealistic friends is thrown into chaos when one of their own is drafted to fight in the Vietnam War. Featuring the exuberant anthems “Aquarius” and “Let the Sunshine In,” Hair’s themes of protest and celebration will have you dancing in your seat.

“Triumphant, glorious, and breathtaking! Hair is a musical for the ages because it’s a musical for the now.”
–New York Post
