Tennessee Williams'
Baby Doll
- Sept 11 - Oct 11, 2015
Visit the Baby Doll website

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. 

Ken Ludwig's
A Comedy of Tenors
- Oct 13-Nov 1, 2015
Visit the A Comedy of Tenors website

One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? 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).

Eric Owens, bass-baritone - October 20, 2015
Few singers in recent years have generated more buzz and excitement than Eric Owens. Equally at home in orchestral, recital, and opera, there is seemingly nothing he cannot do, bringing his powerful poise, expansive voice, and acting faculties to stages around the world.

Kenny Barron - October 23, 2015
At age 71, Kenny Barron remains the one to beat. An NEA Jazz Master in 2010 and a nine-time Grammy nominee, he’s one of the most profound improvisers in jazz music and his recent work has only become nuanced, economical, and insightful. His storied career has included extended associations with Stan Getz, Yusef Lateef, and Freddie Hubbard.  Joining him will be his longtime colleagues Kiyoshi Kitagawa on bass and Johnathan Blake on drums.

Parking at McCarter

Construction is happening around McCarter for Princeton University’s Arts & Transit project and the expansion of the Lewis Center for the Arts. This has an impact on parking, traffic and transit in and around McCarter.

The new Transit Plaza is now open!  View our updated instructions and maps before you plan your trip to see the latest development changes throughout the season!

Listening Assistance


We have installed brand new assistive listening equipment in both our theaters. Both stages are now outfitted with dedicated microphones allowing patrons to hear a play or concert with clarity.
