Winner! Ten Tony Awards including Best Musical! In this charming, delightfully off-beat musical based on the award-winning film of the same name, a transportation mix-up strands an Egyptian police orchestra overnight in a remote Israeli village. With no lodging available, the locals take the musicians into their homes for the night, where, under the spell of the desert sky, the two groups bond over shared humanity and a love of music. Featuring a transporting mix of musical styles, including jazz, klezmer and Middle Eastern melodies, The Band’s Visit is “one of the most ravishing musicals you’ll ever be seduced by.” (New York Times)

DE’LON GRANT
JAN 26 – FEB 17, 2024

Winner!  Best Play – New York Drama Critics Circle Award!  Inside a cubicle in a bank in Twin Falls, Idaho, Keith, a mortgage broker, and Ryan, a yogurt plant worker, unexpectedly choose to bring one another into their fragile worlds.  Ryan, who is white and divorced, wants to buy a plot of land that his family used to own in the hopes of making a better life for his daughter.  Keith, who is Black, gay, and also single, is looking to adopt his foster daughter Willa before her relatives can steal her away. With humor, empathy, and wrenching honesty, playwright Samuel D. Hunter commingles these two lives in a story that is both small and big at the same time. 


 

COST OF LIVING

BY MARTYNA MAJOK
DIRECTED BY ALEX LONATI
MAR 8 – 30, 2024

Winner! 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama!  In this wry and quietly observed play, Polish-born playwright Martyna Majok interweaves the stories of four lonely souls to examine the forces that bring people together and the ways we all need each other.  Eddie, an unemployed truck driver, and his estranged ex-wife, Ani, find themselves unexpectedly reunited after she suffers a devastating accident. And John, a brilliant PhD student with cerebral palsy, hires Jess, a first-generation Princeton graduate who has fallen on desperate times, as his new aide. Together these powerful stories comment on the complexity of caring and being cared for, and “the various tendernesses of simply being human.” (The Daily Beast)
