Thirty years after Peter Brook's groundbreaking adaptation of the Indian epic The Mahabharata, the director has created an intimate new interpretation and staging of this timeless tale in perhaps his finest work. A newly crowned king surveys a post-war battlefield—his army has won him the crown, but at what price? Written almost 2,500 years ago, The Mahabharata's magical story of finding tranquillity in the midst of war and destruction has striking connections to modern times, and has inspired some of Brook's most beautiful images and most transformative theatrical moments.

But for the two hapless guards assigned to protect the palace, morning will set the wheels in motion for a ghoulishly funny existential crisis that will shake their faith in God, the empire and each other.

A haunting story that took off-Broadway by storm, John is the latest hit from American theater's hottest new voice—2014 Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker (The Flick). Jenny and Elias show up at an old bed-and-breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—he wants to tour the historic battlegrounds, she wants to be left alone.

Or their curious landlady, Mertis, who switches their bedroom because "the Jackson Room can be a little temperamental"?

Leni Riefensthal was the brilliant German film director of Triumph of the Will and Olympia, films cited by Pauline Kael as "the two greatest films ever directed by a woman," and which also served as propaganda for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. In Sarah Greenman's wildly creative multimedia play, Riefenstahl's older and younger selves edit a film of the director's life, playing out and reshooting scenes from her past until the director finds the beauty she is seeking. Leni is an extraordinary work about artistic responsibility, narcissism and denial.

Jazz legend Miles Davis travels to Europe in 1949 to discover the pleasures of Paris, unlock his creativity, and find his heroine in Juliette Gréco. At the same time, French filmmaker Jean Cocteau embarks on his own opium-fueled journey to New York. Individually, the stories are thrilling and heartbreaking, but what elevates this production is the extraordinary storytelling. Visionary Canadian director Robert Lepage mounts his set inside a vast suspended cube, with which he frames interlocking scenes from the different journeys. The result is not only a breathtaking dive into art and exile but also a spellbinding mix of stagecraft and visual storytelling.
Fueled by such unforgettable songs as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Piece of My Heart," "Mercedes Benz," "Cry Baby," and "Summertime," a remarkable cast, and breakout performances, A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock 'n' roll's greatest legends.
Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins won the Obie Award for his radical, incendiary, and subversively funny riff on Dion Boucicault's once-popular 1859 mustache-twirling melodrama. Judge Peyton is dead, and his plantation Terrebonne is on the brink of foreclosure. George, the high-minded heir apparent, falls for the lovely Zoe, who's one-eighth black. But the bigoted plantation queen has eyes for George, and the dastardly overseer M'Closky plots to keep Zoe and Terrebonne for himself. A spectacular collision of the antebellum South and 21st-century cultural politics, An Octoroon is "This decade's most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today," says the New York Times.

Also returning are the three Matsumoto sisters — Rose, Grace, and Chiz — to their family home to begin their lives again after internment in Arkansas. Successful, prosperous, and part of the community before the war, they want to take up their former life where they left off, but doing so proves more complicated than they thought. Balancing comedy, romance, and suspense, this tender and truly heartwarming play tells an important story of what it means to be an American.
In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat.

In the opulent Presidential Palace of an unnamed country, four women await the arrival of the embattled dictator -- his wife, her best friend, a British journalist, and a translator -- while a revolution grows violent outside. As the political tension escalates, time refracts and earlier scenes replay from different perspectives. Morgan, the award-winning British playwright and screenwriter (The Iron Lady, Suffragette), takes the audience on a breath-taking journey with a fascinating theatricality that is at once compassionate, dispassionate, and probing.
An innocuous comment at a dinner of two interracial couples leads to a surreal escalation of Cold War-style paranoia. You Mean to Do Me Harm is a psychological exploration of Chinese and American foreign relations, and of the personal relations we hold most dear.
It seems that hardly a day goes by that the media doesn't confront us with yet another unspeakable act. Kirsten Greenidge's Zenith teases out the complex and interwoven threads of one life that ends shockingly. Daring in structure and rich in detail, this play makes us question whether we can ever truly fathom another human being.
