DISGRACED - October 11-30, 2016
Ayad Akhtar’s fiery Pulitzer Prize-winning drama that took Broadway by storm will keep you on the edge of your seat and inspire debate long after you leave the theater. Amir Kapoor is a successful lawyer at a prestigious Manhattan law firm. He is married to a beautiful woman and is just trying to live a good life. When conversations at a dinner party turn confrontational, racial and religious tension forces him to face his own ambition and stifled cultural identity. (Matthews)

BATHING IN MOONLIGHT - September 9 - October 9, 2016

Visit our Bathing in Moonlight website

When Father Monroe discovers that Marcela and her Cuban-American family are struggling, he offers a warmth and kindness unlike anything Marcela has ever experienced. Small acts of generosity blossom into love as the lines between vocation and passion begin to blur. Artistic Director Emily Mann and playwright Nilo Cruz reunite for the first time since the Pulitzer Prize-winning Anna in the Tropics with this lyrical new play about falling in love and finding a place to call home.

A Centennial Birthday Celebration!
JAZZ 100
- October 1, 2016
What do the following jazz greats have in common: Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, and Monto Santamaria? They were all born in the glorious year of 1917. Pianist Danilo Perez has assembled an unparalleled combination of players, headed by vocalist Lizz Wright, including Chris Potter (tenor sax), Avishai Cohen (trumpet), and Wycliffe Gordon (trombone) to celebrate their 100th birthdays. (Matthews)

Returning by Popular Demand:
PIAF! The Show
- October 17, 2016
Anne Carrere returns with her homage to France’s greatest singer. Join “The Sparrow” on a journey through the streets of Montmartre during the halcyon days of the 40s and 50s. Carrere takes you through Piaf’s genre defining classics like La Vie en Rose and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, right up to the golden age of the post-war cabaret era. (Berlind)
