Ain't Never Been Easy is a play with music about an important chapter in the history of the African American community and our country as a whole. Over many decades, Black America has searched for paths to liberation, freedom and equality. That search has led in many directions, and to this day it remains unfinished.
During the 1930's, a significant number of Black leaders, from W.E.B. Du Bois to Harry Haywood to Paul Robeson, turned to communism to solve the triple issues of social, racial and economic injustice. Ordinary African Americans in places like Birmingham, Alabama followed suit, and Ain't Never Been Easy tells their story.
The play reveals a piece of American history that's rarely taught in schools and universities. It's of particular interest to the playwright, Dan Friedman, whose father was a union organizer and who has devoted his adult life to progressive political activism.

This megamusical classic is the longest-running musical in Broadway history. Indeed, it is entirely likely that there are cast members currently in the show that were born after Phantom's opening night on Broadway over two decades ago. Based on Gaston Leroux's 1909 novel, Phantom centers on the hideously deformed "Phantom" who lurks beneath the Paris Opera and the object of his obsession, the young soprano Christine, whom he is determined to make a star thereby winning her affections. With a timeless score and a design that reinvented the stage spectacular forever, Phantom is a must-see on Broadway.
Phantom has something for everyone, but it will be most enjoyed by devotees of the megamusicals of the 1980s and 90s. If you loved Les Miserables, Cats, and Miss Saigon, you'll love Phantom too. Phantom has also become very popular with non-English speaking tourists who can enjoy the melodic score and breathtaking set on their own.

Hear Ye, Broadway! From the codirector of The Book of Mormon and the producer of Avenue Q comes something original…something fresh...Something Rotten!, a world-premiere musical comedy about the musical comedy that started it all.
Welcome to the '90s — the 1590s — long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting, and reminders to turn off your cellphones. Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "The Bard." When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world's very first MUSICAL! But amidst the scandalous excitement of Opening Night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self…and all that jazz.
With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals — those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us, and remind us that everything's better with an exclamation point!
General rush tickets will be available for purchase at the St. James Theatre when the box office opens. Tickets are $35, limited to two per person, and subject to availability for that day's performances.

Set in the Revolutionary War America, two lost soldiers stumble upon the "perfect" village while searching for food and shelter. Unfortunately, the villagers are not so willing to share with these weary men until the soldiers begin to make their favorite meal - Stone Soup.
This classic fable, told with mirth and music, makes us realize that anything is possible if we all work together. To further the message of community, the audience is asked to bring canned goods to place in our soup pot which will be given to City Harvest. Recommended for ages 3 to 103!
In addition to the one hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical. We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Then the kids and their families make a special art project and take it home as a souvenir and work together to make a quilt that will be donated to VA hospitals across the country. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production.
The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.
NOW EXTENDED THROUGH NOVEMBER 13
A bulimic, a compulsive eater, a confident overweight gal, and a chronically thin chick walk into a play and… what happens next could only be told by comic mastermind Lisa Lampanelli. With signature wit and razor-sharp insight, Lampanelli's famously irreverent voice comes to the New York stage with Stuffed, bringing together four women's disparate stories to paint an acerbically witty and ultimately poignant portrait of the insanity of a world that forces women to address hard-hitting issues like: Is eating an ice cream sandwich in the shower an emotionally fulfilling activity? When it comes to blue jeans, should one opt for a camel toe or a muffin top? And the ultimate question: can food and body-image issues ever truly be conquered or are we all just destined to be Stuffed?
