Angels Among Us is returning for a holiday encore performance! This previously sold-out hit play, first performed in May 2017, highlights the journey of nine characters living through the worst days of their lives, but little do they know that everything happens for a reason — even if they don't know what it is yet.
Presented in a series of four connected vignettes, these characters learn that sometimes they have to get through absolute devastation in order to experience the divinity and joy in their lives. As they learn to overcome their fears and let go of what they can't control, they might just be able to connect with a higher part of themselves and find understanding, peace, and happiness. This play explores the complicated nature of the human experience and the struggles we all face through having to feel our pain, joy, growth, fear, and surrender, while having to evolve and face our mortality.
Arden/Everywhere reimagines Shakespeare's As You Like It as a story about refugees. It unlocks this beloved comedy's deepest heartbeat to tell a distinctly contemporary story — one that looks into a world of dislocation and exile to discover resilience, reconciliation, and love. Performed by a diverse cast of actors whose origins extend from Russia to Liberia to Sri Lanka to Ohio, it unleashes theater's unique ability to awaken empathy, locating our common humanity in the face of a seemingly incomprehensible global catastrophe.
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 explores their collective struggle with Jim Crow, their intelligence, patriotism, dreams of an inclusive fair society, and brotherhood. 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
In Blood Boundary (the third and final play of Vicki Lynn Mooney's Broken Heart Land trilogy), James, a young man raised in a white family, must examine his life when confronted with his Cherokee mixed-blood relatives. James faces the tough choice to leave to pursue his medical career abroad or stand beside his family in a time of racial oppression during the dark days of 1920s.
This award-winning and electrifying production of A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess's literary masterpiece, arrives in New York direct from a sold-out run in London. A Clockwork Orange lures audiences into a glass-edged, testosterone-filled underworld of a dystopian future. The explosive story of little Alex and his band of droogs is a groundbreaking classic teeming with sexuality and "a bit of the old ultra-violence." The story feels as hauntingly relevant today as when the book was published in 1962 and when Stanley Kubrick's Oscar-nominated film caused a stir in 1971. A Clockwork Orange remains an unapologetic celebration of the human condition and individual freedoms.
In the year 1949, three elite members of the Poe Society gather in honor of the 100th anniversary of the death of Edgar Allan Poe. They hope to induct new members into the society as well as attempt to summon the spirit of Poe and discover how he really died. Their foray into the spirit world through the eyes of a medium takes a sharp left when the spirit of Poe arrives and events do not go the way anyone expected.
The Cooping Theory: Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe? is an intimate, multisensory, immersive, paranormal experience located in a 150-year-old speakeasy in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Enjoy a theater event featuring craft cocktails, delicious food, and live music after the show in the beautiful upstairs bar and outdoor patio at St. Mazie Bar & Supper Club.
In a small Boston suburb, a single schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter's life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up questions: What truly separates the haves and the have nots? Is it wrong to seize an incredible chance, even if the circumstances seem questionable? Loosely inspired by a passage from The Great Gatsby, this timely new play by the author of The City of Conversation probes the troubling relationship of finance and educational opportunity in American life today. Directing is Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt).
The year is 1973. In Chile, a group of young poets meet to write, argue, critique, and flirt. Days later, the government collapses and the president is shot. Amid the brutality, one poet rises to fame as a skywriting daredevil — and possibly a killer.
An eerily relevant drama unfolds in Brooklyn-based theater company Caborca's adaptation of Roberto Bolaño's novel Distant Star, a harrowing tale of fascism and its aftermath. It weaves Bolaño's memories of life (and death) under Pinochet's American-backed dictatorship into a perverse, seductive noir of urgent political necessity. Infused with the novelist's perverse humor and mastery of suspense, the play draws audience members, almost without their noticing, into the vortex of its terrifying world, making a political story personal and vice versa. Distant Star is staged throughout the bunker-like environment of the Underground Theater at Abrons Arts Center, the actors and audience occupying every inch of physical space.
Conceived, written, and directed by Murielle Borst-Tarrant [Kuna/Rappahanock Nations] Musical direction by Kevin Tarrant [Hopi/Hochunk Nations]
A Safe Harbors Indigenous Collective Project
Watch out when Indian show business meets the Doctrine of Discovery! A raucous play and political satire loosely based on Dante's Divine Comedy. A comedic Native-Aesthetic look at the marginalization of indigenous peoples and the appropriation of indigenous cultural and intellectual property. See what happens when the Indians push back.
The Triangle Waist Company fire on March 25, 1911, lives in infamy as one of the worst disasters in the history of New York City. In just a few short minutes, over 140 lives were abruptly extinguished when the eighth, ninth, and 10th floors of the Triangle Waist Company were consumed by fire on that fateful March day. Most of the casualties were female immigrants who had come to America to start new lives for themselves and for their families. Many of the girls sent portions of their meager incomes back home to their relatives who remained in the "old country." The young women had believed the stories they had read about American streets being "paved with gold." The reality was, the only gold they saw were the gold coins pocketed by the manufacturers.
Fire dramatically interweaves fictionalized stories about these young transplants with actual testimony from the trial against the owners of the factory. It poetically explores the theme of avarice juxtaposed against the dream of living in a new land and all the promise that goes along with it.
Fire resonates today because one of the baser human desires, greed, pervades the world as much now, if not more, as it did back in 1911. The play is ultimately about overcoming adversity and never giving up hope for a better life.
Set in Montezuma, Georgia, and New York City in 1941, this new work by Adrienne Kennedy — a multi-Obie Award winner and one of America's greatest living dramatists — is a heartbreaking and nail-biting memory tale of segregation, theatrical yearning, and doomed love. The action, driven by lyrical parallel monologues and a chilling tour through a storeroom of charged images, braids together the indignities of Jim Crow, rising Nazism, sexual hypocrisy, Christopher Marlowe, and the lingering shadow of a terrible crime.
New York Premiere
Written by Tony- and Olivier Award-winning playwright Brian Friel.
In the hot Donegal August of 1878, the fruits of colonialism and the ambiguities of loyalty are tested within the background of impossible love. Christopher Gore, the liberal-minded Anglo-Irish landlord and his son, David, reside at the Lodge with their "chatelaine" Margaret, with whom they are both in love. Christopher's cousin, Dr. Richard Gore, arrives with the intention of pursuing a Darwin-inspired scientific theory: By measuring the craniums of the indigenous Irish, he hopes to crack the genetic code of the indigenes…demonstrating their inferior place in the natural order. Set in the era of the rumblings of violence and uncertainty at the dawn of the Home Rule movement, Brian Friel explores the aftermath of Dr. Gore's experiment as deep animosity is dangerously ignited among the suspicious villagers of Ballybeg.

Following 2013's Belleville, Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Herzog and multi-Obie Award-winning director Anne Kauffman return to New York Theatre Workshop with Mary Jane. During a rain-drenched summer in New York City, an indefatigable single mother navigates the mundane, the shattering, and the sublime aspects of caring for a chronically sick child.
The joys and perils of motherhood, the hovering shadow of infant mortality, and the sting of loneliness and rejection merge as Mary Shelley creates her masterwork, Frankenstein. The creature that Dr. Frankenstein produces, an assemblage of disparate elements, coalesces into a monster with a human soul. His horrific appearance conceals the gentlest heart. Through no fault of his own, he descends into evil. Excerpts from the 1818 edition of Frankenstein, music, and dance are interwoven with Mary Shelley's letters and diaries, creating parallel narratives as both dramas unfold. This production features music by Bach, Liszt, and Schubert.
Set in South Central Los Angeles, Luis Alfaro's Oedipus el Rey is an electrifying new take on Sophocles's classic tragedy. Oedipus is reimagined as a troubled Latino whose dreams of controlling his own destiny soar above the barbed wire of the prison where he's spent his life. But in a place where everyone is trapped — by desperation or fate, history or violence — no one man can change his story alone. Love, family, and belief collide in this chilling new play that asks, "What's fate, and what's just the system?"
Gina was warned that one of her students would be a problem. Eighteen years old and strikingly odd, Dennis writes violently obscene work clearly intended to unsettle those around him. Determined to know whether or not he's a real threat, Gina compels Dennis to meet her during her office hours. But as the clock ticks down, Gina realizes that "good" versus "bad" is nothing more than a convenient illusion and that the isolated young student in her office has learned one thing above all else: that for the powerless, the ability to terrify others is powerful indeed. Neel Keller directs this taut new drama by playwright Julia Cho.
The Peculiar Patriot confronts the complex and critical issue of mass incarceration. With more than 2.5 million people behind bars, America is the world's leading prison superpower. The Peculiar Patriot examines the human impact and inhuman machinery of the prison-industrial complex and shines a glaring light on the racial disparities that feed the draconian system. The play follows protagonist Betsy LaQuanda Ross, a self-proclaimed peculiar patriot, as she makes regular visits to penitentiaries to boost the morale of her incarcerated friends and family, navigating love between barbed wire. As she shares neighborhood updates and gossip and reminisces about family, Betsy delivers a shrewd indictment of the criminal justice system in her own authentic and inimitable style, with a heavy dose of humor to boot.
Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking 1959 drama chronicles the struggle of the Younger family to escape their impoverished existence on the south side of Chicago and find a more prosperous life away from the limitations of their segregated black community. The decision to move to Clybourne Park, an all-white neighborhood, tests the family's core values and fortitude.
Theresa Hanneck is a celebrated author and veteran feminist warrior; Msemaji Ukweli is a promising young writer who is quickly becoming the leading cultural critic on race, class, and gender for a new generation. When a heated exchange between the two women goes viral, Theresa finds herself ill-equipped to manage her message in the era of 140-character tweets — especially against a rival whose time may have come. A collision of ideals within the feminist movement propels JC Lee's riveting drama from breathless start to surprising finish.
All For One Theater presents Squeamish, the new play starring two-time Tony nominee Alison Fraser (The Secret Garden, First Daughter Suite). This production is the third psychological horror play from Aaron Mark, following his acclaimed Empanada Loca with Daphne Rubin-Vega and Another Medea with Tom Hewitt.
Squeamish is the tale of an Upper West Side psychoanalyst, a long-time recovering alcoholic whose bloody quest for personal balance begins when she finds herself in the South Plains of Texas, off her meds, after her nephew's suicide.
In a strange relationship that lasted 14 years and was conducted exclusively through letters, Pyotor Ilyich Tchaikovsky and his patroness Nadezhda von Meck were united through the invincible power of a disembodied love in which they both found refuge. Plagued by doubts about the greatness of his music, tormented by the fear that his homosexuality would be discovered, and trapped in a marriage to a woman who was eventually committed to an insane asylum, Tchaikovsky found in von Meck an "invisible angel." Tchaikovsky: None but the Lonely Heart honors their unique relationship in part through music, including the composer's Piano Trio in A minor.
A world premiere with a cast of four, The Thing With Feathers feels almost like a thriller as Scott Organ masterfully spins the tale of an underage teenager seduced by an older man on the internet. Things are not as they seem, however. This play is one of several by Organ produced by the Barrow Group Theatre Company. Others are Phoenix, Afraid. Yes. Of., The Mulligan, and The Faithful.
In Too Heavy for Your Pocket, Tennessee-born playwright Jiréh Breon Holder takes audiences back to Nashville in the summer of 1961. The Freedom Riders are embarking on a courageous journey into the Deep South. When 20-year-old Bowzie Brandon gives up a life-changing college scholarship to join the movement, he has to convince his loved ones — and himself — that shaping his country's future might be worth jeopardizing his own.

Upside Down narrates the story of a young, able-bodied woman who accidentally enters a world populated by people who dress, act, and move in the opposite way — a world that contradicts "normality." Performed by a cast of actors with disabilities, this production upends the concept of daily life, social norms, and diversity.
A Walk in the Woods, Lee Blessing's insightful two-character play set during the end of the Cold War, tells the tale of a series of meetings between two diplomats, American and Russian. The play raises deep questions: What can we do to heal the world? What is the value of human connection? How can we best bridge fundamental differences? In today's political climate, Blessing's story has chilling resonance.
"Why is it still like this?" Janice sighs to Eliza. It's 1992, and Eliza is the brainy new recruit at a small-shop architecture firm. But she's struggling to get a foothold on even the lowest rung of the company ladder, and starts making moves to blow the lid off their Pandora's box of office politics and social maneuvering in this sharply hilarious black comedy. Theresa Rebeck brings her trademark blistering wit to the workplace in this darkly funny and all-too-relevant comedy of gender politics.
In a land where the whiskey is always flowing, an ambitious young painter is faced with a life-altering choice: give up on her dreams and embrace a carefree life, or lose her father, the powerful Mayor of Williamsburg.

Award-winning writer Marcus Gardley's critically acclaimed play X: Or, Betty Shabazz v. The Nation lyrically explores the assassination of Malcolm X — both the story we think we know and illuminating details that have seldom been shared. Shakespeare's Julius Caesar provides a framework for Gardley to deepen our understanding of one of America's most complex, compelling historical figures, and to explore the tumultuous landscape of ideology and activism in the 1960s.
