The multi-Tony Award-winning hit musical American Idiot, based on Green Day's Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum album of the same name, boldly took the American musical where it had never gone before. The high-octane show includes every song from the American Idiot album as well as several songs from Green Day's follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
Johnny, Tunny, and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths quickly diverge. Tunny enters the armed forces, Will gets called back home to attend to family responsibilities, and Johnny's attention is torn between a love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot contains little dialogue, instead relying on Green Day's lyrics to articulate the story.
Style. Status. Success. A group of 20-something editorial assistants are pursuing it all at one of New York's most esteemed cultural magazines. But declining readership, diminishing advertising revenue, and forced layoffs have employees tense and combative behind their cubicle walls. When a seemingly normal day at the office turns out to be anything but, these aspiring journalists are given inspiration in a way they never expected. A Pulitzer Prize finalist, this hilariously dark and shocking play takes audiences on an unpredictable, unnerving journey to a simple and very human insight.
Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from Afghanistan under unusual circumstances to help take care of his ailing father, who once ruled the house with an iron first, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mother. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, and with Isaac's newly out transgender sibling Max as her ally, she's on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac's sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn't always free you from it. It leaves so many of our so-called normative and progressive ideas about gender, family, the middle class — and cleaning — in hilarious and ultimately tragic disarray.
It's the dawn of the 20th century in New York...a time of enormous change and new ideas, and the world is moving to the music of ragtime. This epic Tony Award-winning musical depicts the struggles, successes, hopes, and dreams of a white, upper-middle class family in New Rochelle, an African-American musician and his girlfriend in Harlem, and a Jewish immigrant and his daughter on the Lower East Side. Interwoven with their stories are the newsmakers of the era — Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, J.P. Morgan, and Henry Ford among them. Minneapolis director Peter Rothstein has reenvisioned this originally massive musical as an innovative, highly theatrical production that, in today's world, resonates to the very heart.
A farce. A tragedy. A brilliant experiment for the mind. Brace yourself for an exhilarating experience staged by multi-Tony Award winner Frank Galati. Berenger is a simple man with a simple life. He has a regular job, drinks too much, and has a flirtatious relationship with his coworker Daisy. But his day is interrupted by a rhinoceros charging through town — then another and another. Berenger begins to ponder the ramifications of literally following the herd. Written just after World War Two, Rhinoceros is still considered a masterpiece of absurdist theater, where the world is incomprehensible and anything a writer can imagine can happen. Don't miss this hilarious satire about mass culture, conformity, and integrity.
As the U.S. adjusts to a new administration and millions of women march in solidarity around the world, Roe emerges at a pivotal time in our nation's history. The lawyer: a young, brilliant, courageous woman arguing Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court. The plaintiff: a hard-living single woman who, in 1969, found herself poor and pregnant for a third time. The landmark 1973 case legalized abortion but also began unforeseen transformations for these women, mirroring the polarization in American culture. With shocking turns and surprising humor, Roe illuminates the difficult choices women make and the passion each side has for its cause.
Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman's Academy Award-winning film bursts to life on the Asolo Rep stage. Promising young playwright Will Shakespeare is tormented by writer's block while two competing theater managers are demanding new comedies replete with romance, adventure, and maybe a funny bit with a dog. To his rescue comes the beautiful and vibrant Viola, Will's greatest admirer and the inspiration he's been longing for. But Viola has a secret, and Will finds himself star-cross'd. This sweeping romantic comedy is a love letter to the arts. As Viola proclaims, "I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all."
