2014-15 Theater Season
Antony and Cleopatra
Sep 5 - Oct 5, 2014


She was the seductive queen of Egypt and he one of the generals of Rome. Their tempestuous love affair would tear empires apart. Nicole Ari Parker (Broadway’s A Streetcar Named Desire; Boogie Nights, Soul Food) and Esau Pritchett (Fences) join director Emily Mann for this sizzling production. Shakespeare’s Antony & Cleopatra is one of literature’s great masterpieces, full of romance, passion, and betrayal. Don’t miss this intimate tale of two legendary lovers whose desires shaped the destiny of the world.

The Understudy
Oct 14 - Nov 2, 2014

Visit The Understudy website

The show must go on—even when everything seems to be going hilariously wrong. It’s the understudy rehearsal for a hit new Broadway play, but the set technician is high, the cocky movie star doesn’t understand the script, and the understudy is surprised to find that the stage manager is his jilted ex-fiancée. Backstage friction takes center stage in a biting comedy about art, celebrity, and the things we do for the business we love. Just another day in the life of an understudy!

A Christmas Carol
Dec 5-28, 2014

Visit the A Christmas Carol Website

Bring your family to meet ours and celebrate the season with McCarter’s critically-acclaimed production of Dickens’ classic masterpiece, A Christmas Carol.  Join us for the perennial favorite the New York Times calls “A must-see,” and make this cherished McCarter tradition part of yours!

Sizwe Banzi is Dead
Jan 16 - Feb 15, 2015

Visit the Sizwe Banzi is Dead website

To stay above the water, Sizwe Banzi might just have to put himself below the ground. John Kani won the Tony Award for Best Actor for his astonishing performance in a historic collaboration with South Africa’s greatest playwright, Athol Fugard (Master Harold and the Boys, Valley Song). As relevant now as it was then, Sizwe Banzi Is Dead is an exquisite demonstration of the political power of storytelling. A striking tale of heroism and perseverance, this powerful drama is filled with surprising humor and uplifting faith in the human spirit.

Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville:
A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

March 10-29, 2015

Visit the Baskerville website

Sherlock Holmes is on the case. Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Under the direction of Amanda Dehnert, five transformable actors will bring this spine-tingling Victorian whodunit to life with sheer inventiveness and enormous heart.

Five Mile Lake
May 1-31, 2015

Visit the Five Mile Lake website

With exquisite care, Rachel Bonds paints a moving portrait of a group of young people, yearning to make the right choices—and facing the choices they have already made—as they journey into their thirties in a rapidly transforming world. Don’t miss this funny, tender, and heart-wrenching play about those who stay, and those who go away.
