Shots are fired in a school house, and the world seems to stop. A stunned community — teachers, parents, friends, families of the victims and the perpetrators — must find a way to keep living their lives. This lyrical and potent drama explores the aftermath of a school shooting in an Amish community, and the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake. This play was inspired by the tragic 2006 shooting at an Amish school in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
In 1941, the German physicist Werner Heisenberg traveled to Copenhagen to meet his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr. Old friends and colleagues, now they find themselves on opposite sides in a world war and embroiled in a race to create the atom bomb. Why Heisenberg went to Copenhagen, and what he wanted to say to Bohr, are questions that have intrigued and divided historians and scientists ever since. Michael Frayn's Tony Award-winning play about this historic meeting is a classic of modern drama—a meditation on friendship and moral responsibility, intellectually dazzling, and deeply moving that journeys through the realm of science and beyond.
Provocative director Liesl Tommy brings Broadway savvy, storytelling flair and a revolutionary sensibility to "The Scottish Play," Shakespeare's exploration of murderous ambition, fiendish equivocation and a love of terrifying intimacy. In a world beset by civil war and invasion, Macbeth and his artful lady begin a series of murders, plunging us into the darkest night of the soul. Storms rage, fires burn and night blankets the earth in this tale of sound and fury, accompanied by Shakespeare's richest poetry.
As the star of his own musical autobiography, comedian/musician/storyteller Ahamefule J. Oluo is electrifying. Part experimental pop opera for 17-piece orchestra and part comedic storytelling piece, Now I'm Fine is compellingly energetic, blending original music with darkly comic personal monologues about illness, despair and regeneration. A virtuosic performance by vocalist okanomodé further illuminates this deeply relatable story that ranges from epic to intimate. Oluo's storytelling was recently featured on This American Life. He is the founder of the hard-jazz quartet Industrial Revelation and has collaborated with Macklemore, Das Racist, Hey Marseilles and many others.
Carl Maria von Weber's stunning music for Oberon brings you a true midsummer night's dream, beginning with the famous overture. Shakespeare's gods are a-quarreling, and true love must be conjured by a host of fairies, kings, elves, medieval knights and the mischievous Puck. Writer and director Nick Olcott unveils a new English adaptation of this classic opera, conducted by music director Stanley Thurston.
A moving look at life in the small town of Grover's Corners, "Our Town" examines what it means to grow up. Through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage" and "Death and Eternity," Thornton Wilder studies the deeply personal yet remarkably universal lives of the Webb and Gibbs families. This poignant American tale explores friendship, love and death, but most importantly, what it truly means to live.
Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking masterpiece follows the Younger family, who yearn for a better life far from the cramped confines of their Chicago tenement. Hope arrives in the form of an unexpected financial windfall, but relationships are strained when family members realize they have different definitions of the American dream. Whose dreams will be realized and whose deferred? A Raisin in the Sun paints the African-American experience in brilliant and powerful strokes. This portrait of life remains as vibrant and vital today as it was at the play's premiere in 1959.
With its ravishing language and uproarious comedy, Romeo and Juliet celebrates love's triumph and its trivialities. Verona's walls embrace the volatility of youth as well as the wisdom and restraint that often escape young and old alike. Thumb-biting, dance and swordplay share the stage with sonnets, bawdy wit and soul-searching speeches in this profoundly human and always surprising treasure.
Love and lust are the ultimate Hallmark emotions, right? According to Bento Bonchev, they're saccharine marketing gimmicks designed to sell flowers and candy to those gullible enough to believe. But Bento's world is turned upside down when an astounding discovery forces him to rethink his dogma. Set in the not-so-distant future where love is thought to be a myth, this Russian absurdist satire offers a truly novel take on an age-old question of the heart.
Silencio Blanco explores voice through the power of silence in a world where corporate greed feeds corruption. A young man is thrown out of the coal pit where he works, and in a precarious attempt to protect his livelihood and support his family, takes on a new job in the infamously sinister mine El Chiflón del Diablo. Meanwhile, a community copes with this danger in its midst and the uncertainty it sparks in their every day lives. Performing in complete silence using minimalistic marionettes, puppetry ensemble Silencio Blanco spins a universal story of humanity in the face of hardship, highlighting those who are often forgotten behind sensational headlines.
