"Uplifting! Inspirational! This show is also tough to resist. By the end, when the pilots overcame their obstacles and finally got up into the air to the swelling of music, tears welled up in my eyes." - New York Times

Oscar Isaac returns to the Public Theater in this electrifyingly intimate new production of Shakespeare's enduring drama Hamlet. Isaac plays the prince caught between thought and action, not to mention anger and anguish, as his uncle assumes the throne left vacant by Hamlet's murdered father. As the dead king calls to him from the grave, demanding to be avenged, Hamlet is forced to choose between bearing the oppressor's wrong and taking arms against a sea of troubles. Tony Award winner Sam Gold directs theater's most powerful tragedy about life and death, madness and conscience, and corruption — of the state as well as of the soul.
Tony nominee Arian Moayed (The Humans, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) offers a revelatory new reading of the "melancholy Dane." Set in Persia a hundred years ago, on the eve of World War I, Waterwell's Hamlet weaves passages of Farsi translation into the English of Shakespeare's masterpiece of crisis and identity. In it, a traditional way of life is being threatened by an evolving world, the land is being threatened by encroaching foreign interests, and a young man finds himself uprooted and torn between opposing customs, values, and codes. Featuring a vibrant score that seamlessly blends traditional Persian and modern Western elements, this is a bold reimagining of most renowned play in any language. Drama Desk nominee and Waterwell co-founder Tom Ridgely directs.
Featuring Barzin Akhavan (Ghost, Player King, Priest), Amir Arison (Laertes), Maryam Atei (Player Queen, Lady), Brendan Averett (Captain, Sailor, Ambassador), Cary Donaldson (Fortinbras), Andrew Guilarte (Claudius), Abraham Makany (Marcellus, Guildenstern), Arian Moayed (Hamlet), Arash Mokhtar (Barnardo, Rosencrantz), Ajay Naidu (Polonius, Gravdigger), Sherie Rene Scott (Gertrude), Sathya Sridharan (Osric, Voltemand, Player), Micah Stock (Horatio) and Sheila Vand (Ophelia).
Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest (Hannah and Her Sisters, Bullets Over Broadway) plays Winnie in Samuel Beckett's masterpiece Happy Days. Buried up to her waist and sinking into the earth, Winnie is one of modern drama's fundamental female roles: an endlessly fascinating spirit of buoyant resourcefulness and unassuming grace in the face of inevitable oblivion. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, compassionate and ferocious, this extraordinary Happy Days is directed by James Bundy, artistic director of Yale Repertory Theater, where this production originated.

Three young men visit the legendary Stonewall Inn for a birthday celebration. With hopes of fixing a broken relationship between Corey and Bryan, a new friend enters who takes an interest in joining them in the birthday bash. Corey's secret birthday gift to himself has more in store than he bargained for. A Night at Stonewall is a short, powerful play about love, awareness, and the consequences of living in a society of app-based hookups.

Theresa Hanneck is a celebrated author and veteran feminist warrior; Msemaji Ukweli is a promising young writer who is quickly becoming the leading cultural critic on race, class, and gender for a new generation. When a heated exchange between the two women goes viral, Theresa finds herself ill-equipped to manage her message in the era of 140-character tweets — especially against a rival whose time may have come. A collision of ideals within the feminist movement propels JC Lee's riveting drama from breathless start to surprising finish.
They Promised Her the Moon is a probing drama based on the true story of an astronaut who had all the right stuff but never got the chance to be the first woman in space.
Though they were deft at maneuvering around the many obstacles of their era, both Jerrie Cobb — who was part of the secret female astronaut-testing project now known as Mercury 13 — and the famed pilot who funded the project, Jackie Cochran, found themselves confronting less obvious, more personal roadblocks as well. Cobb, who is alive today, actually out-tested her male counterparts in the official Mercury 7 group (led by John Glenn, Gus Grissom, and Alan Shepard). Still, she was denied the chance to be the first woman in space, in part due to Glenn, who became, in 1962, the first American to orbit the earth and later a United States senator. He spoke against the inclusion of women as astronauts in the space program. A year later, Russia sent the first woman into space; it would take another 20 years for the U.S. to give Sally Ride her mission.
More than a documentary chronicle of an overlooked chapter in our history, They Promised Her the Moon is a thought-provoking and haunting drama about the challenges of fighting for the greater good (versus ego), fairness, and sisterhood.
