Love and Information
By Caryl Churchill
Directed by Shana Gozansky
September 27-30, 2018
Someone is in love. Someone is confused. Someone is depressed. Someone just wants to help. Caryl Churchill’s Love & Information gives us a peek into the lives of humans in their most banal, profound, small, and epic moments. Moments that reveal or obfuscate, illuminate or confuse. A dizzying exploration of our pursuit for connection and understanding that is brutally honest and unabashedly hopeful.

Mistaken identities, a corpse in a wheelchair, and $6 million in diamonds...the musical Lucky Stiff is the story of an English shoe salesman living a dreary life, until he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. Harry Witherspoon sets off to Monte Carlo to collect an inheritance from an American uncle he's never met, but his uncle's ex-girlfriend and the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn can stand in his way. Filled with fun and laughs, and a rich score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Once on This Island, Seussical the Musical, Anastasia, and others) this musical farce takes twists and turns and reminds us that it's "Good to Be Alive!”

Self-proclaimed cynic Flora Belle Buckman is ten years old and loves comic books.

The squirrel, who she names Ulysses, emerges from the vacuum endowed with super powers of flight and poetry.

Jackie Liebergott Black Box Theater
Some work cannot be described. It is discovered in the rehearsal room. This room has about twenty people in it: actors, singers, designers, composers, movers all. There will be stories, songs, dances. There will be stillness, inexplicable beauty, the expression of complex emotions, gorgeous language, comedy, earnestness, and tears. It will not be something you’ve seen before or could have imagined by reading a description of it. Rinde Eckert has been in such rooms all his life making provocative work. Join us as we venture into this creation of a new theatrical piece!
Measure for Measure
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Maureen Shea
February 21-24, 2019
In Shakespeare’s Vienna, laws against premarital sex are technically on the books, but they have never been enforced. That is, until the duke decides that somebody should crack down. Not wanting to take the heat for being that someone himself, the duke puts his morally upright deputy, Angelo, in charge. Angelo arrests and condemns to death a young man, Claudio, for the crime. When his sister Isabella begs Angelo to spare her brother’s life, Angelo agrees, but only if she will sacrifice her virginity to him. When she threatens to tell somebody, Angelo replies, “Who will believe thee, Isabel?” Sound familiar? Written around 1604, Measure for Measure may be one of the most relevant plays ever written about sexual harassment and abuse against women, and the stakes for women who speak up about it.

Working - 2012 Revised Version
Adapted by Nina Faso and Stephen Schwartz
With additional contributions by Gordon Greenburg
Directed by Scott LaFeber
Musical Direction by Jon Goldberg
April 18-20, 2019
Cutler Majestic Theatre
The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock. Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers and with music by a host of composers including Lin-Manuel Miranda, James Taylor, Micki Grant and Stephen Schwartz, Working paints a vivid and diverse portrait that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, ironworker, the waitress, the mill worker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman and the housewife, just to name a few. It's a highly original look at the American landscape that is simply impossible to forget.
