Juno and the Paycock

"Performed by a dynamic cast led by Ciarán O'Reilly and Maryann Plunkett, [director Neil] Pepe's take feels fresh and relevant while remaining faithful to [Sean] O'Casey's nearly 100-year-old play." Read Pete Hempstead's full review here.

The Prom

"The Prom joyfully asserts that we can laugh at ourselves and still fight for what's right, that cultural change need not be a humorless affair. In a time when adult musical comedy feels like an endangered species on Broadway, the happy warriors of The Prom couldn't be more welcome." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.

White Noise

"[Suzan-Lori] Parks has a lot to say about the corrosive nature of slavery, the sexual allure of the taboo, and the limitations of consent (which is not the silver bullet of sex and freedom it is purported to be)." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.

Thomas Sadoski, Daveed Digs, Zoë Winters, and Sheria Irving star in Suzan-Lori Parks's White Noise, now making its world premiere at the Public Theater.
