Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye Adapted by Lydia R. Diamond |Directed by Clayton Shelvin | December 4 - 20

Eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates.  Instead, she faces constant ridicule and abuse. She blames her dark skin and prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow. With rich language and bold vision, this beautiful theatrical adaptation of Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison’s classic American novel explores the crippling toll that a legacy of racism in one small Ohio town has taken on a community, a family, and an innocent girl.

The Glass Menagerie By Tennessee Williams | Directed by Maxwell Williams |March 18 - April 3

The Glass Menagerie marked a crucial turning point in American theatre, and forever changed the life of its then unknown author. Williams’ elegiac masterpiece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway – the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this “memory play” has made it one of America’s most powerful, timeless, and compelling works of theatre. Renowned for its vivid characters, exquisitely written dialogue, and absorbing story, The Glass Menagerie promises to move, to entrance and to dazzle.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart | Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim | Based on the plays of Plautus | May 20 - June 5

We close the season by kicking up our heels with Broadway’s greatest musical farce, and winner of nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical! A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from the 2,000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. A joyous romp through Rome, this performance is full of desperate lovers, scheming neighbors, and secrets behind every toga!
