Open: 04/14/17- Close: 04/30/17 Macbeth
Our upcoming production of Macbeth is a fitting response to our times in its exploration of ambition, tyranny and what it means to be a leader. With Macbeth, as with all of our work, we seek to answer the question: “What does it mean to bring our full humanity into our work, play and lives?” 

Macbeth is a part of Humanist Project’s TYRANT SERIES.  The series began in April of 2016 with a workshop production of Titus Andronicus, which played to full houses and standing ovations. Our investigation continued in the fall of 2016, with a week-long study of Richard III, in partnership with The Shakespeare Society, culminating in a public reading of the play on the night before the presidential

Open: 04/20/17- Close: 05/10/17 Show Up
In "Show Up," award-winning solo show performer, producer and SOLOCOM creator Peter Michael Marino ("Desperately Seeking the Exit," "Late with Lance!") uses his decades of solo performance expertise to turn the often vilified clichés of the genre on their clichéd heads. Marino exploits an arsenal of Post-it® Notes to compile and transform the challenging and enlightening real-life audience experiences into a single vibrant life-story that is daring and unique each time. Chance elements are increased as audience members are engaged to cue lights, design the set, and direct. "Show Up" provides a wild, unpredictable ride for the audience as Marino navigates this high wire, simultaneously commenting on social anxiety, depression and performance challenges.

Open: 04/21/17- Close: 05/07/17 THAT TRUE PHOENIX
That True Phoenix is the story of Lorenzo Da Ponte: the most interesting man you’ve never heard of. Far more than just the Librettist for Mozart’s greatest Operas, Da Ponte still ended up as a mere footnote in history. Based on his own highly embellished memoirs, That True Phoenix chronicles Da Ponte’s life from exiled revolutionary schoolteacher in Venice, to disgraced court poet in Vienna, to Pennsylvania grocery story owner, to Columbia University Professor in New York City and tells the true story of a perpetual immigrant who changed his story to become the true embodiment of the American Dream.

That True Phoenix is Team Awesome Robot’s long-term script development project with playwright, Daniel John Kelley.
