Medea: A Rock Musical

Written by The Kilbanes. Directed by Reggie D. White
Medea is a young woman of nineteen, trapped in her father’s palace and dreaming of a new life. This contemporary adaptation of a classic tale uses rock music and an innovative performance style that is part concert, part theatrical performance to explore the beginning of a woman whose end we know all too well. A live, four-piece band playing folk-and jazz-infused rock music helps us explore the life and mind of a woman driven to an unspeakable extreme.

A Seagull in the Harbor

Written by Emily Mann. Directed by Stephen Hamilton
A Seagull in the Harbor is a 21st-century rendition of Chekhov’s classic play The Seagull. Emily Mann’s rendition of Chekhov’s masterpiece features bright, contemporary language and a modern East End setting that brings the classic story close to home. In a world of appearance, money, business, and celebrity culture, this story about the betrayal of children by their parents is at once heartbreaking and hilarious. With relevance and a flowing, natural language, Mann’s adaptation challenges us to think about where American culture is headed.

The Prompter

Written by Wade Dooley. Directed by Scott Schwartz
The Prompter follows veteran actress Irene Young, who, after a forty-year absence, is returning to the Broadway stage. But now, she can’t do it alone; so, the production hires a young actor to be her prompter. But, this isn’t her story, it’s his. Based on real events, The Prompter is a funny, heartfelt, untold, behind-the-scenes looks at Broadway through the eyes of a young dreamer.

Written by Jennifer Maisel. Directed by Will Pomerantz
Eight Nights tells the story of the lives that inhabit an apartment from 1949 to 2016. A young Jewish Holocaust survivor finally free to start anew in the United States confronts the past that haunts her. How much can she move forward without forgetting those she loved?
