Boy Gets Girl

by Rebecca Gilman

February 5 -21, 2021

Theresa, a professional single woman living in New York City, is self-confident and upbeat … that is, until a fateful blind date with a man named Tony. The two are obviously mismatched, but when she begs off on seeing him again, he refuses to take ‘no’ for an answer; and she starts to lose her cool. What follows parallels the familiar story of romantic pursuit of a reluctant female by an over-eager male – but suddenly more sinister forces enter the picture. Suspenseful, and at times chilling, this play is thought-provoking and thoroughly in tune with contemporary sensibilities.

2001 Outer Critics Circle Award (nominee). Directed by Mariangela Saavedra

In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play

by Sarah Ruhl

Rescheduled dates:
April 9 -25, 2021

In the 1880s, the epoch that launched the miracle of electricity, Dr. Givings, a gentleman and a scientist, invents a device for treating female”hysteria”: the vibrator. Provocative and funny, this play provides excellent insight into the morals of the time.

Subscription and Ticket information to be announced.


By the Way, Meet Vera Stark

by Lynn Nottage
June 11-27 , 2021

It’s the Golden Age of Hollywood, and aspiring starlet Vera Stark works as a maid to Gloria Mitchell, an aging star grasping at her fading career. Worlds collide when Vera lands a trailblazing role in an antebellum epic starring…her boss. While Vera’s portrayal of a slave turns out to be groundbreaking, decades later scholars and film buffs still grapple with the actress’ legacy in Hollywood and the impact that race had on her controversial career.

Subscription and Ticket information to be announced.
