Open: 05/07/19- Close: 05/25/19 A Streetcar Named Desire
An immersive new staging, featuring the first Genderqueer actor in the iconic role of Blanche DuBois.

Set in the sultry and sweltering 1940's French Quarter of New Orleans, this immersive production invites audiences into the Kowalski apartment where young couple Stanley and Stella are joined for the summer by Stella's damaged, fading debutante sister, Blanche. In a play that famously pins the working class, alpha male Stanley Kowalski against the soft, privileged beauty Blanche DuBois, this production speaks to the divided state of the world today.

Written by Tennessee Williams

Directed by Kevin Hourigan

The cast features Julian Alexander, Max Carpenter, David J. Cork, Isabel Ellison, Tony Macht, Yvonna Pearson, and Russell Peck.

Venue:
MISTER ROGERS : 231 Rogers Ave
Open: 05/23/19- Close: 06/02/19 BREAKING THE SHAKESPEARE CODE
“Shakespeare's poetic language has always been the argot of lovers, but never have two people been wooed and won by it so intensely than the characters in John Minigan's compelling Breaking the Shakespeare Code. It is one of the finest plays you'll see… Stephen Brotebeck has directed a brilliantly acted production of [John] Minigan's intelligent play about the coded language of reluctant lovers. [Miranda] Jonte and [Tim] Weinert electrify the stage like a modern Beatrice and Benedick with their exquisitely nuanced performances and onstage chemistry. In many ways, the play is a love letter to the power of Shakespeare's words as well as to the acting profession itself, and anyone who cares about either of these things will find this show exhilarating.” - Pete Hemstead, Theatermania

Get ready for a journey to the “red planet” in this sexy, new comedy with a psychedelic twist.
