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. Actress Nicole Ari Parker (Boogie Nights, Soul Food) reunites with director Emily Mann after their sizzling Broadway collaboration in A Streetcar Named Desire. Shakespeare’s Antony and 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

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

Join Ebenezer Scrooge on a magical journey and experience the generosity of spirit that embodies the peace and goodwill of the season.

Sizwe Banzi is Dead
Jan 16 - Feb 15, 2015

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

World Premiere!
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. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors. 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

With exquisite care, Rachael 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.
