  • The Balcony

    By Jean Genet

    Translated by Jean-Claude van Itallie

    The intersections of sex, politics, revolution, and artifice are all explored in Jean Genet’s The Balcony. Set in Madame Irma’s brothel, and against the backdrop of riotous revolution in the streets, The Balcony employs highly theatrical, fantastical, and presentational styles and challenges us to look at how fantasy and role-play directly influence our societal views on power and authority. The production features a newly updated translation by Jean-Claude van Itallie and contemporary approaches to staging and movement, to provoke us to hold a mirror up to our own culture.

    Note that this production contains mature content, including scenes of violence and sexual situations.

  • Love and Information

    by Caryl Churchill

    Our world today often seems beset with a rushing stream of news, facts, postings and other bits of information whose shear volume sometimes threatens to numb us to the very immediacy of own humanity. Ironically for all our “connection” and “informedness” we increasingly find ourselves more and more alone, exposed, and grasping for meaning. Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information presents 100 characters over 57 scenes grappling with questions pertaining to information, identity, memory, and love. Each scene offers a dialogue between two or more characters trying to make sense of a moment, a dilemma, or a bond between people. As Mark Pritchard, Resident Dramaturg at Australia’s Malthouse Theatre put it, “At its heart, Churchill’s fascinating play is charging us to do that essential human thing, the only thing that holds us together—communication, human to human, working together to create meaning and beauty in a chaotic world.”

  • Bring It On: The Musical

    Music by Tom Kitt and Lin-Manuel Miranda

    Lyrics by Amanda Green and Lin-Manuel Miranda

    Book by Jeff Whitty

    Bring It On explores the intricate relationships between young people during the tenuous high school years, where the world seems small and the stakes loom impossibly high. This high-energy contemporary musical is an adaptation of the popular cheerleading Bring It On films. With convergences of class, race, body type, and gender meeting at a cheer competition, each character in Bring It On learns ultimately about friendship and forgiveness after experiencing envy and deception.
