Floyd Collins Poster 

February 12-22, 2014
By Adam Guettel and Tina Landau

New York Magazine proclaimed that Floyd Collins is “the original and daring musical of our day.” It tells the story of Floyd Collins, a man who gets trapped 200 feet underground while chasing a dream of turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction. This haunting musical—one of the most acclaimed in recent years —voices the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.


 Our Town Poster

April 16-26, 2014
By Thornton Wilder

With the success of David Cromer’s 2009 Off-Broadway production of Thornton Wilder’s 1938 Pulitzer-Prize winning play, Our Town has been even further cemented in history as an American classic. With themes illuminating the stages of life and conventions commenting on the nature of theater, this work is as revolutionary for its time as it is relevant for today.  “Wilder sought to make sacraments of simple things. In Our Town he cautioned us to recognize that life is both precious and ordinary, and that these two fundamental truths are intimately connected.” — NY Times

Cloud 9 Poster

September 25-October 5, 2013
by Caryl Churchill

The time-shifting comedy by the author of Top Girls created a sensation when it opened Off-Broadway in 1981 under the direction of Tommy Tune. It tells a story of many different relationships -- between men and women, men and men, women and women. Cloud 9 is about sex, work, mothers, Africa, power, children, grandmothers, politics, money, and Queen Victoria. “Intelligent, inventive, and funny.”— NY Times


 Metamorphoses Poster

A Professional Co-Production with the Adrienne Arsht Center
October 10-27, 2013
by Mary Zimmerman, adaptation of Ovid's Metamorphoses

Mary Zimmerman’s adaptation of Ovid’s Metamorphoses takes the poet’s tales to a stunning visual life. It juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image. “Entrancing… an evening of almost magical changes, wrought through the unique imagery of theater” — Chicago Tribune


 She Loves Me

November 13-23, 2013
By Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joe Masteroff

Georg and Amalia are two feuding clerks in a European parfumerie during the 1930’s who secretly find solace in their anonymous romantic pen pals, not knowing their respective correspondents are none other than each other! She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance and nostalgia, though still as relevant today as ever. “She Loves Me turns out to be one love affair that, against Broadway’s odds, has grown only deeper with time.” — NY Times
