The Dining Room
By A.R. Gurney
September 27-29 | 8 p.m.
October 5 & 6 | 8 p.m.
October 7 | 2 p.m.
A. R. Gurney’s Pulitzer-nominated play skillfully weaves together the stories of multiple generations in eighteen overlapping scenes, each offering a snapshot of a moment in time. Six to eight actors play fifty-nine characters, swiftly dovetailing from one to the next, illustrating an exceptional range of human relationships. Hailed by the New York Daily News as “a banquet of theatrical riches,” The Dining Room is an overlapping and amusing anthology of vignettes about family and food, inherited and disowned values.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon
Adapted by Simon Stephens

Winner of seven Olivier Awards and the 2015 Tony Award for “Best Play,” The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a multilayered and deeply moving play. The story revolves around a 15-year old autistic boy named Christopher Boone who goes on an investigation to find the culprit behind the gruesome murder of his neighbor's dog. In methodical Sherlock Holmes fashion, Christopher investigates the killing, leading him on a journey of secrets and lies from his family and a startling vengeful act. Adapted from Mark Haddon’s bestseller, the play has been praised for its phenomenal storytelling and beauty.
Music by Duncan Sheik
Book and Lyrics by Steven Sater
Based on the play Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind
April 4-6 | 8 p.m.
April 12 & 13 | 8 p.m.
April 14 | 2 p.m.
Desire. Confusion. Rebellion. The turbulent emotions and burgeoning sexuality of adolescence are harnessed in Spring Awakening, winner of eight Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy for original cast album. The musical is a bold and innovative adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s controversial 19th century play, which was originally banned in Germany for its frank depiction of sexuality and controversial issues. It gained a new life on Broadway in 2006 as a folk-infused rock musical, with book and lyrics by Steven Sater and an electrifying score by Duncan Sheik. Haunting and provocative, Spring Awakening celebrates an unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, a poignancy, and a passion you will never forget.
