Peter and the Starcatcher

 

 

Peter and the Starcatcher

By Davie Barry and Ridley Pearson
adapted for the stage by Rick Elice

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

The Flick

 

 

The Flick

by Annie Baker

WINNER! 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
Winner! 2013 OBIE Award, Playwriting
Winner! 2013 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize
Nominee! 2013 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Play
Nominee! 2013 Lucille Lortel Award, Outstanding Play
Finalist! 2013 New York Critics Circle Award, Best Play

In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

R.U.R.

 

 

R.U.R.

by Karel Capek

R.U.R (Rossum's Universal Robots) kicks off our legacy show in the spring. By the Czech writer Karel Capek, this play introduced the word robot (from the Czech robota, meaning forced labor) to the world in 1920 and examines what it is to be human and robot, and what it means to love. This show started an important concept in modern storytelling and sci-fi, the idea of the robot.  We think you'll really enjoy seeing its origins, and all the quirky characters and fancy costumes along the way.

Heathers the Musical

Music, lyrics, and Book by Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy

This musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, HEATHERS will be New York’s most popular new musical. Are you in, or are you out?
