To add pain to injury, a mysterious theater critic, Albert Fish, rips McCabe apart in a scathing review of his latest production, Cunt in Blue Paint! The star of the show, seemingly washed up Gorgeous Marty Makers, struggles with confidence and whether or not gaining the approval of another is worth taking someone's life over. Following tragedy, a questionable and quizzical Detective Billy Catskill berates McCabe with questions that no one can seem to find the answers to. By way of spirit, Gorgeous' daughter Lulu, a practicing Satanist, shows McCabe just what it means to fend for one's self and how ultimately, to Hail Satan!

More than 70 years later, Williams' most personal work for the stage continues to captivate and overwhelm audiences around the world.

In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos' novel of sex, intrigue, and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalized the world. About 200 years later, in 1985, Christopher Hampton's stage adaptation became an award-winning sensation in London's West End and on Broadway, followed by the Academy Award-winning film Dangerous Liaisons starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich, and Michelle Pfeiffer. Now Les Liaisons Dangereuses returns to the stage in a production from director Josie Rourke. After a sold-out engagement at London's Donmar Warehouse and an Olivier Award nomination for Best Revival, the show has come to Broadway. The production stars Tony Award winners Liev Schreiber (Glengarry Glen Ross) and Janet McTeer (A Doll's House).

A virtually uncut and briskly paced presentation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, directed by The Seeing Place's Artistic Director, Brandon Walker.
"Love Conquers All" is this holiday season's headline, as music and adventure take to the stage. While Merchant is often considered one of Shakespeare's toughest "problem plays", Hamlet Isn't Dead continues their exploration of his entire canon with open minds and a focus on how the story reflects our modern sensibilities. With live music and an adventurous atmosphere, this is a wonderful example of the relevance of Shakespeare's works for everyone, from first-time audience members to well-worn scholars.
Merry Christmas Baby! (Just F**king Die) paints a vivid portrait into the fiction of Ian, who's life unwinds into one of unimaginable discord, hardly harmonious with the conventional customs of Christmas. An epic, enameled with dependence, deceit, dalliance, and dollars, collaged with an especially eccentric lady of the night. Ian's sole source of conscience comes from Jerry, a sincere and necessary source of relief from his constant calamity. An irate girlfriend and lingering lingerie all climax into forcing the audience to wonder why exactly Santa Claus might have shrieked out, Ho! Ho! Ho! into the cold lonely night.
Colombian troupe Vueltas Bravas presents an international production of August Strindberg's Miss Julie with actors from South America and the U.S.
If a modern day fairy tale is a dream come true, then whose dream does it belong to and at what cost? Four actors set out to wrestle to the stage the true story of American Dad, Jeremiah Heaton, who planted a flag in the African desert to make his daughter a real Princess. They attempt to expose this modern day fairy tale's roots in systemic racism and white privilege. What follows is an outrageous, inappropriate and sometimes painful confrontation with their own bias as they take the journey to a new story.
David Oyelowo (Royal Shakespeare Company's The Histories, Selma) stars in this production of Shakespeare's tragedy about a black general tricked into believing his wife is cheating on him.

John Leguizamo presents the Q Brothers' Othello: The Remix, written, directed, and composed by GQ and JQ.
Othello: The Remix is an 80-minute, high-energy spin on Shakespeare's tragic tale proving that the Bard himself was the original master of rhythm and rhyme. Good storytellers borrow, but great ones steal. The show features five cast members: GQ (Iago/Brabantio), JQ (Roderigo/Loco Vito/Bianca), Jackson Doran (Cassio/Emilia), Postell Pringle (Othello), and DJ SuperNova (DJ).
A story of Edward de Vere—17th Earl of Oxford, the author known as "William Shakespeare."
This edgy historical drama smashes the conventional wisdom about "Shakespeare" and the "Virgin" Queen as it suggests the violation of the most basic human taboo. Oxford's travels through Italy are surrealistically juxtaposed against scenes of his life in England, his plays, poetry, betrayal, murder, love, passion and romance in a potpourri of fact, fiction and fantasy. (Did Shakespeare/Oxford have a child with his mother, Queen Elizabeth I?) The Bard meets his match when he meets in the beautiful published poet, the most honored Venetian courtesan, Veronica Franco.
Inspired by a true story, the play follows the trail of a young black con man, Paul, who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittredge, saying he knows their son at college. Claiming he himself is the son of actor Sidney Poitier, Paul tells them he's just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul's intelligence (and the possibility of appearing in his father's new movie), the Kittredges invite him to stay overnight. After finding him in bed with a hustler, their view of Paul changes, and Ouisa and Flan turn detective trying to piece together the connections that gave him access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul's cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory as his lies begin to catch up with him.
