2015-16 Theatre Season
Tennessee Williams'
Baby Doll

Sept 11 - Oct 11, 2015

Times are tough in the Mississippi Delta, where cotton is king and the summer heat drives desires of every kind. Tennessee Williams' 1950s film masterpiece, Baby Doll, was condemned in its time for its riveting tale of commercial and erotic vengeance. The American premiere of this theatrical adaptation will ignite the stage with its darkly comic, steamy tale of one delicate girl's awakening. From the author of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, and A Streetcar Named Desire, Baby Doll is pure Williams, an enthralling tale of prejudice, sexual politics, and passion.

Ken Ludwig's
A Comedy of Tenors

Oct 13-Nov 1, 2015

One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It's 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century—as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep the amorous Italian superstar and his hot-blooded wife from causing runaway chaos. Comedy mastermind Ken Ludwig (Baskerville) returns to McCarter for the world premiere sequel to his sidesplitting international hit, Lend Me a Tenor. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight. Directed by Stephen Wadsworth (The Figaro Plays) this frenzy of a farce promises an evening of sheer joy.

A Christmas Carol
December 4-27, 2015

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!

August Wilson's
The Piano Lesson

Jan 8 - Feb 7, 2016

There's nobody like August Wilson. His ten-play cycle, chronicling the lives of African-Americans in each decade of the 20th century, is among the greatest masterpieces of our time. One of Wilson’s most powerful and transcendent works, The Piano Lesson is a profound, melodic tale set in 1930s Pittsburgh. To reclaim his family’s legacy, Boy Willie must sell their priceless heirloom, but will his sister and the ghosts of their past stand in his way? Full of soaring poetry and shattering intensity, The Piano Lesson is a universal story of memory and perseverance.


The Mousetrap
Mar 8-27, 2016

It's murder—pure and simple...and spine-tinglingly fun. The snow is falling around Monkswell Manor, but the body count keeps rising. Agatha Christie, the undisputed queen of crime, pens this fiendishly delightful, nerve-shredding whodunnit. A perfectly twisted web of a play, this mystery-thriller truly invented the rules of the genre. You'll be filled with shuddering suspense and edge-of-your-seat intrigue until the final twist unfolds. Be careful, murder lurks around every corner!

All the Days
Apr 29 - May 29, 2016

There's nothing worse than family...and nothing better. Miranda has done everything in her power to create a life completely different than the one she came from. But a week before a family celebration, Miranda suffers a lapse of judgment and invites her deliciously eccentric and overbearing mother to come stay. With all the kin in one place, will they all stay in one piece? This heartfelt and hilarious world premiere is about a family of very funny people in the midst of loss, love, and forgiveness.
