The Music Man

A re-imagined concert staging

book, music and lyrics by Meredith Willson

The Music Man

“Well, ain’t no call for a boys’ band in this town…”

You got that right. We’re assembling an all female one. In this stripped-down staging of an American classic, we probe a question we’ve been asking since last season’s Men on Boats: who gets to tell our most foundational stories? What if the Music Man you’ve been waiting for all this time wasn’t a man at all…

John

by Annie Baker

John

A bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, decked out for the holidays. An eccentric innkeeper with a penchant for miniatures, doilies and dolls. A young couple struggling to reconnect. A sublimely odd, yet somehow familiar, cast of characters. But who’s John? Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker uses her trademark humor to unspool a delicate, richly-detailed story that urges us to seek meaning in the quotidian and the mysterious.

Kiss

by Guillermo Calderón

Kiss

In the midst of a Syrian city stricken by war, two couples meet for a quiet evening at home. In an intimate theatre in America, four actors attempt to make sense of an intriguing international work of art. Guillermo Calderón’s riveting play-within-a-play blazes a trail through the twists and turns of cross-cultural understanding, challenging us to reframe our notions of life, love, and what’s lost in translation.

Arlington [a love story]

by Enda Walsh

Arlington [a love story]

A young woman waits alone in a room for her number to be called. On the other side of the wall, a young man watches her and weighs a choice that could change her destiny and his. The line between dreams and reality blurs in this “riveting fever dream of a play” (The New York Times). In a dangerous, dystopian world, what if love is the most powerful act of resistance?
