Only one of Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson's plays in his masterful American Century Cycle has never been seen on Broadway — until now. Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured piece follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city threatens to board up the business and the boss' son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed, and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. Manhattan Theatre Club has a long history of coproducing works by this legendary playwright — King Hedley II, Seven Guitars, The Piano Lesson — and is proud to produce the Broadway debut of Jitney.

This intimate night of storytelling tracks one birth mother's true adoption journey. That journey begins at conception and proceeds to the placement of her child with the gay couple of her dreams. Along the way, she continues living life, dating, and attending the occasional orgy. Bring hankies.
The year is 1967. A writer (played by Josh Radnor) from the bohemian Greenwich Village commutes to Long Island to teach a creative writing class for adults. His students discover the power of storytelling to alter their lives, and one special student (Elizabeth Reaser) — a kindred spirit? something more? — reawakens his own artistic impulses.

1980's Communist Budapest, amateur folk dancing, disturbing secrets, and government surveillance intertwine to form Our Secrets, performed by the internationally acclaimed ensemble Béla Pintér and Company. Infused with live music and dancing, Our Secrets tells the story of a musician forced to choose between exposing his own criminal sexual behavior and dooming his community.
By turns hilarious and devastating, and thematically reminiscent of the Oscar-winning film The Lives of Others, this epic tale uncovers a generation of artists who learn the hard way that there is no such thing as a right to privacy. Our Secrets offers a searing and incisive look at Hungary's past while providing a blueprint for the present day.
Black Angels Over Tuskegee is the story of the Tuskegee Airmen told in narrative of six men embarking upon a journey to become pilots in the United States Army Air Forces.

The play goes beyond the headlines of the popular stories of the Tuskegee Airmen and exposes the men who exhibited the courage to excel, in spite of all the overwhelming odds against them.
Winner 2009 Artistic Achievement Award "Best Play"
"Uplifting! Inspirational! This show is also tough to resist. By the end, when the pilots overcame their obstacles and finally got up into the air to the swelling of music, tears welled up in my eyes." - New York Times

Now, there's a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?

For over 400 years, the Drunk Shakespeare Society has been meeting and drinking. And drinking. And doing Drunk Shakespeare. A self-proclaimed "drinking club with a Shakespeare problem," its members invite audiences to join them for a meeting in their society lounge. The evening begins with an actor drinking more than a sophisticated amount of alcohol before attempting to lead the cast through a Shakespeare play in one hour. The results are messy, outrageous, and the night devolves into debauchery.
Note: The theater is wheelchair accessible.

From acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Tanya Saracho (Mala Hierba, ABC's How to Get Away With Murder) comes Fade, a behind-the-scenes comedy about the burgeoning friendship between Lucia and Abel, two Latinos of Mexican descent working at a ruthless Hollywood studio. Lucia is a tenacious novelist, newly hired to write for a TV detective series and struggling to find her place among a team of domineering white male coworkers. Abel is one of the studio's janitors, sympathetic to Lucia's difficulties and generous with his opinions and personal anecdotes, which keep the two of them in an absorbing tête-à-tête throughout their workdays. As their bond grows, Abel's stories blur with those Lucia is writing for the show, and they both find themselves in the center of their own not-quite-made-for-TV drama.

It has been said that theatre at its most basic is great storytelling. Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose is an exhilarating story, and indeed brilliantly told. Two-time Tony Award-winning character actor George Rose (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, My Fair Lady, The Pirates of Penzance), a bon-vivant with a flair for the dramatic and the eccentric, starred on the Broadway and London stages alongside luminaries like Katharine Hepburn, Noel Coward, Dame Edith Evans, Richard Burton, and Laurence Olivier in a storied career that met an unexpected end.

In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer reunites with his two sisters for a celebration of their father's 75th birthday. All deeply invested in their own versions of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael's controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate — with biting humor and razor-sharp insight — how much of the past they're willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning.
If I Forget is a sharply funny, unflinchingly honest new play about the stories we choose to believe, the compromises we can't avoid, and the hurt only our nearest and dearest can inflict.
Life According to Saki is inspired by the life and short stories of early 20th-century writer Hector Hugh Munro, nicknamed "Saki." Somewhere between Oscar Wilde and Roald Dahl, Saki's creations are witty, absurd, and peculiarly optimistic.
It is November 1916 at the Battle of the Somme — where Saki and his fellow soldiers bear witness to a world turned on its head. They seek refuge in Saki's stories, where the serious is taken lightly and the light seriously, and for a time the war cannot intrude.
Winner of the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award, Life According to Saki is now making its U.S. premiere. This debut play by award-winning children's author Katherine Rundell is directed by Jessica Lazar and designed by Anna Lewis. It is brought to life by an ensemble cast and the occasional puppet.
Behold The Spectatorium: an audacious, visionary 12,000-seat theater designed for the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 by Steele MacKaye, the now-forgotten theatrical impresario around whom this haunted, 40-year love story spins. From the minds of celebrated playmaking company The Debate Society, The Light Years is an epic yet intimate tale of two families struggling to meet their future — and a spectacular tribute to man's indomitable spirit of invention.

Manhattan Theatre Club presents this timely, moving, and fiercely funny new play by Penelope Skinner (The Ruins of Civilization) in its American premiere, directed by MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow.
