Allegiance tells the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the attack on Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but his sister, Kei, fiercely protests the government's treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, Allegiance follows the Kimuras as they struggle between duty and defiance, custom and change, and family bonds and forbidden loves.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this classic by Eugene O'Neill is a surprisingly contemporary play that crackles with fierce physicality, humor, and drama. After a 20-year separation, a coal barge captain is reunited with the daughter he unknowingly abandoned to a life of hardship. When Anna falls in love with a shipwrecked sailor, her father and her suitor come to recognize their own culpability in her plight, and all three struggle in their own way for salvation.
Delightfully gothic, beautiful and emotionally complex, Ada/Ava utilizes special-effect techniques from the early age of cinema — shadow puppetry, live-action silhouettes and overhead projection — to conjure a magic spell of multimedia storytelling, complete with a live musical score. Driven by innovation, the masterful technicians of Chicago-based Manual Cinema are one of the hottest rising ensembles in America, with audiences marveling at their creations even as their methods are plainly revealed.
Beside a lighthouse somewhere on the New England coastline, twin sisters tend to the tower's guiding light and to each other, until Ava unexpectedly dies. Here, the unrestrained imagination moves the melancholy act of mourning through of journey across the thresholds of life and death.
Adam was the scariest man in the National Hockey League, but now he's been demoted to the minors, gotten high on painkillers, and trashed the locker room at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. His friends need to talk him down before he gets into real trouble, but he's got his own agenda, and it isn't about making saves, dekes, dangles, snipes, and passes. Brawler, a modern-day take on Sophocles' Ajax, looks at hockey as the last true gladiator sport.
Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a remarkable theatrical experience. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, the play takes audiences inside the mind of Christopher Boone, a 15-year-old math savant who doesn't do "chat," speaks declamatory sentences, and can't stand to be touched. When he discovers one night that his neighbor's dog has been murdered, he sets out to solve the crime. His quest takes him on a journey that upends his world.
From Silence tells how Esther's world is turned upside down when her daughter Deborah rushes home with the news that their New Jersey temple is on lockdown and her granddaughter Elaina is trapped inside. Esther survived the Holocaust, but never talked about it, despite the pleas from her daughter and granddaughter — it was too painful to recount that part of her life. During the endless wait, Esther comes to regret her silence and realizes her duty to tell her story, but will it be too late for Elaina to hear it?
Four actors play a total of 21 characters in Incognito's three interwoven stories. A pathologist steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist embarks on her first romance with another woman; and an acute amnesiac repeatedly forgets everything but his love for his wife. Incognito braids these mysterious stories into one graceful play, asking whether memory and identity are nothing but illusions. From acclaimed British playwright Nick Payne, author of the Broadway sensation Constellations, it's an "astonishing and original" (The Telegraph) play for our times.
Shakespeare's epic political tragedy dramatizes the downfall of an arrogant and narcissistic ruler bent on turning the Roman Republic into a dictatorship. Set in a futuristic parallel universe where women are in power, this all-female production sees the race to claim control of Rome spiral out of control.
Written by Nobel Prize-winning author Albert Camus, staged by leading avant-garde French director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and produced by the celebrated Paris theater company Théâtre de la Ville, The State of Siege is set to take the country by storm this fall on its first visit to the United States. The rarely staged work, penned in 1948, weaves a tale of paranoia, endurance and political struggle resulting in a dizzying modern metaphor. With a renowned ensemble working on an epic scale, The State of Siege (L'État de siège) explores how art can serve as a way to process — and to resist — human atrocities. What role can art play in the face of peril? Faced with imminent danger, can the human spirit remain focused on the beauty of life?
Thomas Novachek (Tim Hoover/Casey Preston), a beleaguered playwright-director, is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda, the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale Venus in Fur. Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress — oddly enough, named Vanda (Kimberly Waller). Though utterly wrong for the sophisticated part, Vanda exhibits a strange command of the material, piquing Thomas's interest with her seductive talents and secretive manner. As the two work through the script, they blur the line between play and reality, entering into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination that only one of them can win. A mysterious, funny, erotic drama that represents yet another departure for the multifaceted David Ives.
