When first noticing his wife at the age of sixteen, Sam could not predict the profound connection they would share—they are two halves of the same whole. In their 33rd year of marriage, that love was tested…and the ringing in Sam's ear was not as one would expect, in fact it was an orchestra, playing the music of his life--The Actual Dance.

Beautiful Monster is a daring new play by Karlton Parris depicting the final hours of the life of iconic author of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley.

As the clock ticks towards Mary's mortality, she recalls in a series of heart wrenching hallucinations the epic confrontations with Percy's formidable mother, Elizabeth Pilfold Shelley, the tender friendship of her loving step sister Claire Clairmont, and sees her younger self capturing the essence of a time when her mind and body were blemish free, and in a truly terrifying twist, she is confronted by the very monster she created. warning male nudity and sexual scenes
Blacktop Highway, written and performed by the nationally renowned and groundbreaking artist John Fleck, is the next theatrical commission at Dixon Place. One of the infamous NEA-4, Fleck has been a prominent theatrical figure since 1990 when he and three other performance artists' National Endowment for the Arts grants were withdrawn after being contested in a precedent-setting Supreme Court case. In Blacktop Highway, Fleck embodies more than 10 characters in the play, inspired by classic horror cinema and Freud's theories of mind and ego. The production is inspired by classic horror cinema and weaves video and virtuosic theatrical staging with John Fleck's remarkable vocal qualities, leading the audience into a darkly hilarious world of sex, greed and religion.
Based on the belief that there are benevolent forces in the world trying desperately to help us (if we would just get out of the way and let them), Dogma explores love, loss, vulnerability, walks and treats through the eyes of two wise little pups, Mischief and Trouble, as they attempt to take care of their wayward humans, Chris and Jake.
Oil heiress Leonie Frothingham whiles away a summer at her seaside cottage, where cocktails flow with the tides, and lovers come and go like mosquitoes. Her estranged husband Sam and her daughter Paula humor Leonie's flirtations as matter-of-course for the ultra-wealthy floating above the conventional rules of the world. While the Great Depression ravages most of the country, Leonie's idyllic retreat is not wholly protected from the quakes of the era. Paula and her idealistic fiancé cultivate youthful, misgivings about Capitalism and its beneficiaries. Leonie's latest flame, the psychoanalyst Kenneth Rice, insinuates himself into each relationship and psyche with a pretense of objectivity that gets him everything and everyone he wants. With penetrating insights, all in the course of one beautiful season, End of Summer exposes the forces that build fortunes, tear apart families, and buttress the American society of haves, have-nots, and the revolution waiting in the wings.

Soder and Mailka are our Elegant Lades who wheel the audience through cycles of birth, ruin and regeneration. The play tumbles forth as almost the best junk shop you've ever been in so you can see the culture is not as organized as we think. It is a world wherein objects are alive, sentient beings who complain about each other and their bad behavior.
This showing serves as the culmination of Cara Scarmack's Dixon Place residency. Come witness the first stabs of this play's early development.
Vanitas is the emotional vacancy of repeatable, predictable forms; it is the emptied, utilitarian expectation you feel looking at a modern city's horizon, the power of architecture quietly choreographing our lives.
We want to destroy Vanitas.
Like witnessing the demolition of a building, the rupturing of Vanitas produces a surge of emotions: adrenaline, panic, anger, and most importantly, absurdity.
Through a combination of theatricality, poetics, and technology Vanitas shows how stories we attach to technology influence how it evolves, and reciprocally, how we evolve around it. However immaterial stories are, they have the power to buckle concrete and bend steel, and they can be difficult to escape.
While other women fought for the right to vote, one woman ran for President. Just as "Hamilton" is based on the story of one of our nation's founding fathers, Victoria Woodhull tells the story of the first woman to run for president, in 1872, before women in the United States had the right to vote.
The story of a fascinating, if forgotten figure, Victoria Woodhull will open your eyes and make you wonder how you could not know more about such a pivotal character in our nation's past. A blend of our nation's history and exciting theater, Victoria Woodhull tells the true story of the first woman to own a Wall St. brokerage - who then ran for the highest office in the land. Proof that fact can be stranger than fiction, this play is a must see for anyone following our elections who wants to know what went before - and how a woman campaigned to lead the nation before she even had the right to vote.
