Fringe First Award Winner Baba Brinkman is the world's first and only "peer reviewed rapper,"bringing science to the masses with his unique brand of hip-hop comedy theatrics. In Rap Guide to Climate Chaos, Brinkman breaks down the politics, economics, and science of global warming, following its surprising twists from the carbon cycle to the energy economy.
A trailblazer in the genre of "lit-hop"—he has created hip-hop adaptations of The Canterbury Tales, Beowulf, and Gilgamesh—Brinkman is also an award-winning playwright, a former tree-planter who has personally planted more than one million trees, and a Friend of Darwin Award winner (for his efforts to improve the public understanding of evolutionary biology) who has opened for Stephen Hawking.
From the creators of the Tony Award-winning The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and the creative team behind the Tony-nominated 2014 Broadway revival of On the Town comes the world premiere of The Royal Family of Broadway, a musical comedy love letter to the Great White Way. For the Cavendishes, the show must go on! Set in the 1920s and loosely based on the legendary Barrymore family, this musical centers on three generations of actors: an aging grande dame, a Broadway star looking for love, a self-centered boozing leading man who's fled to Hollywood, and a promising ingenue — all making pivotal choices in their lives.
The Royal Family of Broadway's creative team isn't far from Broadway royalty itself. The show's book is by Tony Award winner Rachel Sheinkin (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), its music and lyrics by Tony Award winner William Finn (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), choreography by Tony nominee and Emmy Award winner Joshua Bergasse (On the Town), and direction by Tony winner John Rando (On the Town).
In celebration of the 100th birthdays of Leonard Bernstein and Jerome Robbins, Barrington Stage Company presents West Side Story, conceived Jerome Robbins, with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. One of the world's greatest love stories takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, where two young lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice is one of the most innovative, relevant, and heartache-inducing musicals of the 20th century. Directed by Julianne Boyd, this production features choreography by world-renowned dancer, choreographer, and Tony nominee Robert La Fosse.
