In Abundance, the breathtaking tall tale of Bess and Macon, two mail-order brides are lured to the plains of Wyoming by the promise of new beginnings. As wild and unpredictable as the untamed West itself, this fierce and funny adventure spans a 25-year journey, unearthing along the way the dark underside of American mythology and the unbreakable bonds of female friendship.

BACK AFTER A SOLD-OUT RUN! A New York Times Critic's Pick! New Georges, in association with Women's Project Theater, presents this insightful and hilarious new play. "For those of you just tuning in, Thanksgiving is already in progress here at Wembly kitchen..."
For those of you just tuning in, Thanksgiving is already in progress here at Wembly kitchen. The stands are nice and full, it's quite a crowd that's gathered. While a repeat of the Gravy Boat Episode of 1979 may not be in the offing, I think we can expect a flatware fumble or two, until everyone's in a turkey stupor, contemplating pie. And all the while a Herd of Great GrandBabies is amassing under the table in this dark and witty exploration of how family is played, over time and memory and through generations.
City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the Landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed — and the Church won't leave him alone. For ex-cop and recent widower Walter "Pops" Washington and his recently paroled son Junior, the struggle to hold on to one of the last great rent stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum in this dark comedy from the Tony nominated author of The Motherf*ucker with the Hat and Jesus Hopped the A Train. For Pops and Junior, it seems the Old Days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living Between Riverside and Crazy.
The Bullpen is an 18-character play written and performed by Joe Assadourian and directed by Richard Hoehler. A man is arrested, arraigned and put on trial for a crime he claims he did not commit. Consequently he is judged by two systems of jurisprudence – one a jury of his peers in an actual courtroom and the other the fascinating and hilarious denizens of the bullpen in which he is being held. Mr. Assadourian mercurially transforms from character to character and court to court as the play steamrolls toward both verdicts that literally range from the sublime to the ridiculous.

A ship set sail upon a rhythmic sea is the setting for CAMBUYÓN by Enlace S.C. The Spanish archipelago, the Canary Islands, has long served as a global trade post, resulting in a diverse seaside culture unlike any other. The title of the show comes from a tradition of British ships docking just offshore and inviting residents to row out and purchase goods, or "come buy on" their vessel. The company represents this exuberant, unique crossroads of cultures and disciplines with artists who have performed and taught across six continents. With several members from Camut Band (New Vic 2001), we were familiar with some of the artists, but were introduced to this particular troupe during CAMBUYÓN's celebrated run during the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Come aboard for this exquisitely crafted and globally inspired journey!

Experience the man who famously proclaimed, "I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter..." In Churchill</>, the influential Nobel Prize laureate discusses his failures and his successes; his love of art, liquor and women; and the bravery of Britain's finest hour.

Lady, Be Good ushered in the Golden Age of Broadway, from the mid‐'20s until the early '40s, when Broadway musicals were opportunities for great songwriters, great songs, and great performers. The Gershwins (George was hot off the triumph of Rhapsody in Blue) delivered a jazz‐age score that featured "Fascinatin' Rhythm," as well as a song that got unaccountably dropped during the show's try out in Philadelphia, "The Man I Love." The stars of the show included Fred and Adele Astaire playing a penniless brother and sister who crash a garden party in hopes of some quick nourishment.

Pretty Filthy is ultimately a story about trying to make a life and a living in an ever-changing world—a task that's all the more complicated when your work is so intimately tied to customer "satisfaction."
