KINGS
​by ​Sarah Burgess
directed by Damaso Rodri​guez
October 13 - November 10, 2018

Fresh from New York, this incisive comedy takes an unflinching look at how things get done in Washington. When Sydney Millsap wins a seat in Congress, she’s determined to drain the swamp. Then she meets Kate, a whip-smart lobbyist who gets her clients what they want​—whatever they want. When Kate helps Sydney try to unseat a powerful senator steeped in cronyism, the result is a “sleek, fast-paced, absorbing and very funny” (Vogue) exploration of money’s corrosive effect on politics.

SWEENEY TODD
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

​​music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
book by Hugh Wheeler
directed by Kent Nicholson
January 19 - Feburary 16, 2019

In a barber shop above Mrs. Lovett’s struggling pie shop, Sweeney Todd plots revenge on the lecherous judge who wronged him and his family. In the seedy underbelly of 19th-century London, desperate times lead to diabolical schemes—and strange alliances. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary songs like “Pretty Women” and “Not While I’m Around,” this Tony Award-winning masterpiece was proclaimed, “more fun than a graveyard on the night of the annual skeleton’s ball” by The New York Daily News.

M. B​UTTERFLY
​by David Henry Hwang
May 11 - June 8, 201​9

When this rich, compelling drama debuted on Broadway, it became an instant sensation, sweeping the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle ​awards. A married French diplomat. A mysterious Chinese opera diva. A passionate 20-year affair. Inspired by true events, this break-out hit by the author of Chinglish and Golden Child proved much more than a steamy tale of seduction. Obsession, perception and the allure of fantasy make for a remarkable tale of espionage and betrayal described as “visionary” by The New York Times.

​VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE
​by ​Christopher Durang
directed by Bart DeLorenzo
September 30 - October 21, 2018

In Bucks County, PA, Vanya and Sonia share a country house where they fret endlessly—and amusingly—about their hapless lives. When Masha, their self-absorbed movie-star sister, and her much, much younger boy toy, Spike, visit for the weekend, the entire household gets hilariously upended. Rivalries are rekindled, resentments rage, the housekeeper blurts out strange prophecies and Masha announces she’s selling the house. A tongue-in-cheek homage to Chekhov, this Tony Award-winning comedy was described as “deliciously madcap” by USA Today.

​by ​​Anna Ziegler

Rosalind Franklin was a British pioneer in science in the early 1950s, yet her groundbreaking role in the discovery of DNA’s double helix structure is still often overlooked.

While rival teams of researchers compete for a breakthrough, Rosalind, focused and unbending, is locked in a race of her own. A hit in the West End, it was proclaimed “A triumph” by The Telegraph.
