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.

Laurie Anderson - May 1, 2015
Still the foremost performance artist of our time, Laurie Anderson’s genre-crossing work encompasses everything from film and music to writing, photography, and sculpture. She continues to challenge audiences with her multi-media solo presentations in her various roles as visual artist, composer, poet, filmmaker, ventriloquist, electronics whiz, vocalist, and instrumentalist.

Wendy Whelan Dance Project - April 28, 2015
For 25 years, the great dancer Wendy Whelan captivated New York City Ballet audiences with her elegant yet thrilling movement. If the NYCB had the equivalent of a “prima ballerina,” she was it. In Restless Creature, she joins forces with four of today’s top male choreographers in a vibrant suite of duets, created by and danced with: Kyle Abraham, Joshua Beamish, Brian Brooks, and Alejandro Cerrudo. It’s not often that McCarter gets to host the New Jersey premiere of a major dance event, so we’re thrilled—and so will you be watching what this dance legend and her colleagues have created.

Wenwen Du, piano
- April 27, 2015
There are tenors, and then there is Ian Bostridge, who is his own category. Is there a more admired singer in the world today than this British artist, whether in opera, orchestral, or recital repertoire? He defines the word eclectic, which is why everyone wants him all the time. But it’s his unique and challenging programs that set him apart, like the one he will bring to McCarter.
