WELCOME TO OUR 54TH SEASON, AN EXCITING MIX OF VIRTUAL AND LIVE PERFORMANCES.
Virologist Nathan Wolfe, named one of TIME's 100 Most Influential People in the World for his work tracking viral pandemics, has hunted viruses from the jungles of Cameroon to the basement of the CDC. Hear his story--presented as cinematic digital theatre--as he tracks the threats that come from without and within. A blazingly intelligent, wryly witty and warm look at the thrill of discovery, whether it's a new virus or the treasures of your own family.
When Dina and Yusef learn of their estranged father’s death, they step in and bury a man they never knew. Will brother and sister face their truths once family secrets come to light? Brilliant Mind takes a hard look at generational trauma, the struggle between self and family, and the weight to carry a legacy. In this extraordinary live and interactive digital experience, this is a story of hope, about what gets lost in translation, and what happens when we dare to love unconditionally.
Stay tuned for the announcement of our fourth production, a physical or digital manifestation of our new Associate Artistic Director’s vision of theatre.
A brilliant Ivy League writing professor. A talented yet mysterious student. An unthinkable favor. Everyone has a story—the question is how it ends. Penned by Pulitzer Prize finalist Adam Rapp (Red Light Winter), The Sound Inside takes you behind the ivy-covered walls of Yale, and into New York’s literary haven, Greenwich Village, in this riveting new American play.
In the final installment of the Christmas at Pemberley trilogy, we follow Mr. Darcy’s younger sister, Georgiana - an accomplished pianist - and Lizzy and Mary’s younger sister, Kitty Bennet. Georgiana, shy and hopeful, is living under the scrutiny of her commanding older brother; Kitty, now free of the influence of her flighty sister Lydia, is Georgiana’s joyful, practical best friend. It is Christmastime at Pemberley and the pair impatiently await the imminent arrival of Henry Grey, Georgiana's secret correspondent and equally shy love interest. When the gentleman enters a family holiday in full force and is met by the unwelcoming presence of Mr. Darcy, Georgiana fears her love will be lost forever. The future is never certain, however, and love has a way of arriving exactly when it is meant to.
