Imagine being 12 and having soldiers occupying your house and land, with only your cat to tell your secrets. Kneehigh Theatre, who wowed audiences at the Wallis with Brief Encounter, return with 946, which was originally produced by the Wallis' new artistic director Paul Crewes.
Kneehigh's signature sorcery of music, puppetry and foolishness transports us to Slapton Sands, England, in 1944. Based on the beloved book by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings in this tender tale of love and war.

What better way to start the new year than with a goofy, charming musical escape? Miraculously revived from the dead, four young singers killed in a car crash on the way to their first-ever big concert get to fulfill their dream and perform the show after all — even though now it's more than 50 years later and at International City Theatre! Singing in close harmony, squabbling over the smallest intonations, and executing their choreography with gentle comedic abandon, the four Plaids will keep everyone smiling and humming along to some of the great pop hits of the 1950s. The crowd-pleasing score consists of unforgettable classics, including "Three Coins in the Fountain," "Catch a Falling Star," "Chain Gang," "Cry," "Heart and Soul," "Rags to Riches," "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing," and more.
Every once in a while a show comes along that surprises, moves, and excites audiences in ways only a landmark musical can. Enter Fun Home. It introduces us to Alison, the protagonist, at three different ages as she explores and unravels the mysteries of her childhood.
A musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, Fun Home won five Tony Awards in 2015, including Best Musical. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, it features music by Jeanine Tesori, a book and lyrics by Lisa Kron, and direction by Sam Gold. Their work for this production earned them, respectively, Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book, and Best Direction. The show even made Broadway history as the first Best Musical winner written only by women. As if that weren't enough, Tesori and Kron became the first female writing team to win Best Score.
Note: This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
Eugene O'Neill's semi-autobiographical masterpiece pulls back the curtain on the Connecticut home of the Tyrone family, where deep-seated resentments and bourbon-fueled tirades cause a family to expose their darkest natures. O'Neill paints this powerful and heartrending portrait as a single day that begins like any other, only to become a night from which the Tyrones will never recover.
Regarded as one of America's most important plays, Long Day's Journey Into Night premiered in Stockholm in 1956. Its Broadway debut followed later that year. The production won the Tony Award for Best Play and Best Actor in a Play (Fredric March as James Tyrone). In 1957 the play received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A 2016 revival, starring Gabriel Byrne and Jessica Lange, was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play.

A comatose man reemerges into consciousness in a multilayered, multimedia theatrical event about the miraculous power of the brain to rewire and heal itself. Blending cutting-edge science with masterful storytelling, Ovation, Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle, and L.A. Weekly Award-nominated cowriters Alex Lyras and Robert McCaskill team up with Grammy Award-nominated composer Ken Rich, visual artist Corwin Evans, and multi-Emmy Award-winning editor Peter Chakos to take the audience deep inside his memories, even as a hovering circle of family members and loved ones (all played by Lyras) divide into scheming camps over critical neurological decisions. Plasticity is a profound, often comedic tour of the collective unconscious.
