The Cripple of Inishmaan

The Cripple of Inishmaan LogoIn 1934, the people of Inishmaan learn that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighboring island to film hisdocumentary Man of Aran. No one is more excited than Cripple Billy, an unloved boy whose chief occupation had been gazing at cows and yearning for a girl who wants no part of him.  For Billy is determined to cross the sea and audition for the Yank.  And as news of  his audacity ripples through his rumor-starved  community, The Cripple of  Inishmaan becomes a merciless portrayal of a world so comically cramped and mean-spirited that hope is an affront to its order.

A Raisin in the Sun

A Raisin in the Sun LogoIt has been 57 years since the debut of Lorraine Hansberry’s classic A Raisin in the Sun.    The play still resonates today.  Hansberry created a unique and captivating look at the African American experience in the late 1950’s.  And even today, her insight into the     human experience rings true.

Her play seeks to enlighten and celebrate the struggles and triumphs that we all face     even today.  She wrote, “I am a writer.  I suppose I think that the highest gift that man   has is art, and I am audacious enough to think of myself as an artist – that there is both  joy and beauty and illumination and communion between people to be achieved through the dissection of personality.  That’s what I want to do. I want to reach a little closer to the world, which is to say to people, and see if we can share some illuminations together about each other.”

Really Really

Really Really LogoWhen morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, self-interest    collides with the truth and the resulting storm of ambiguity makes it hard to discern just who’s           a victim, who’s a predator, and who’s a Future Leader of America.   All that’s certain is the veneer       of loyalty and friendship is stripped back, what’s revealed is a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive.

“Lord of the Flies with Smartphones”, “…a take no prisoners indictment of the young men and      women poised to inherit the earth…” Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Assassins

Assassins LogoA multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music    with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five  would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.

Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical "revusical" that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth   to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
