A reunion. An argument. A TED Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate love, careers, children, and world events. But when these private photographs gain the potential to go public, their relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they've become, and how they'll deal with whatever lies ahead. Funny and evocative, 20th Century Blues questions our place in the world and in relation to one another. Multi-Obie Award winner and Tony Award nominee Emily Mann (Anna in the Tropics) directs the New York premiere of this play by Susan Miller (My Left Breast), another multi-Obie winner and winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
In The Amateurs, a scrappy troupe of pageant players races across 14th-century Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death — and medieval subscribers. The arrival of a mysterious new actor sends Hollis, the leading lady, in search of answers that can only be found off-script…and soon one century's plague begins to look a lot like another, more recent one. Wildly inventive, funny, and deeply moving, The Amateurs examines the origins of creativity: When does a crisis destroy art, and when does it set creativity spinning? The Obie Award-winning Oliver Butler (The Open House) directs this new work by Pulitzer Prize finalist Jordan Harrison (Orange Is the New Black).
The Amazing Max is an "awesome and hilarious live magic show for the whole family" (PBS Kids).

Max conjures a custom experience that young ones will carry with them long after the show ends.

Set in Blackpool, England, 1953, not long after Queen Elizabeth's coronation, this real-life story is packed with gritty Northern comedy coupled with a heartbreaking emotional punch.

Upstairs, Mr. Elbridge is trying to muster the courage to unleash any of his three female alter egos and walk the fabled transvestite walk from north to south pier as a woman. As events unfold, six lives will be changed forever, and as Eddy reveals a shocking truth, it will lead to a lifetime of activism: the fight for equality and freedom for the LGBT community.

In this inspiring new play by award-winning Time magazine journalist James Inverne, discover how music helped Israel find its cultural identity during its formative years. In 1925, an unforgettable event occurred when Jascha Heifetz, the most celebrated violinist in the world, played a concert in pre-Israel Palestine. People flocked from all over the globe to see this performance, including Yehuda Sharett, composer and brother of future Israeli Prime Minister Moshe Sharett. Legend has it that after the performance, Heifetz and Yehuda walked together and shared a remarkable conversation that resonated 20 years later, when, in 1945, Moshe echoed Heifetz's experience with his brother in a similar exchange that changed the world as we know it.

In X: or, Betty Shabazz v. the Nation, witnesses give testimonies that bleed into flashbacks, and the play, blurring the real and the half-remembered and giving voice to subjective truths, pieces together its version of the events leading up to the day of Malcolm X's assassination at Washington Heights's Audubon Ballroom. His wife, Betty Shabazz, prosecutes Malcolm X's former ally Louis X (inspired by now-Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan), whom she adamantly felt was involved in the assassination plot against her husband. Louis X resists her interpretation, calling upon his own witnesses and casting suspicion upon the FBI and NYPD, for whom Malcolm X's bodyguard Eugene Roberts was an informant. Gardley's play, in its courtroom limbo setting, examines the growing adversity between Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam, the constricting weight of white supremacist society, and the potential of the behemoth institutions that uphold it to distort any story.
The play hinges on the recollections of the widowed Shabazz in the traumatic aftermath of the assassination. (Left to raise six children alone, she eventually went on to earn a doctorate degree in higher education administration and become Director of Institutional Advancement and Public Affairs at Brooklyn's Medgar Evers College.) With Shabazz's memories weaving the story together, X: or, Betty Shabazz v. the Nation centralizes the experience and voice of a figure who had to fight from within the margins of the margins. As one secretary character in the play puts it, "We're women, secretaries, Negroes, and we're Muslim. If there is a low on the totem pole, put us there, or better yet, put us under the pole. No one can see us anyway. We're whispers." In Gardley's play, such "whispers" become booming presences as Shabazz vehemently seeks justice.
