A Broadway chorus audition comes to life in one of the most celebrated musicals of all time with a brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and drama. Exploring the inner lives and poignant ambitions of professional chorus dancers, this Tony and Pulitzer prize-winning show features one powerhouse number after another including “What I Did for Love, “One,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” and “I Hope I Get It.” Instantly recognized as a classic when it premiered in 1975, A CHORUS LINE ran for a record-breaking fifteen years and is beloved by generations as the ultimate tribute to Broadway musical theatre.

In 1896 New York, the effervescent socialite turned matchmaker Dolly Levi peddles around the city, curating matches between the most unexpected of couples as she spins her own secret quest for love. A tale of romance and adventure, Hello, Dolly! is a gilded coming home story. From the streets of Yonkers to the lights of Broadway, from jubilant parades to lavish dining, from schemes and tricks to happy accidents, Dolly is full of shine and full of sparkle; it’s a celebration of love and a tale of hope and home.

Bask in the timely and timeless brilliance of this immortal theatre classic by Russian playwright Anton Chekhov. The Gayev family are sociable, intelligent, caring and hopelessly in debt. Unless they can find the funds, their huge estate, including its much-loved cherry orchard, will go to a mortgagee auction. The entrepreneurial son of their ex-farmhand offers them a solution, but they balk at his proposal. Racked by indecision and unable to comprehend the huge social changes on the horizon, they spend one last summer on their beautiful country property, conjuring memories of the past to mask their fears of the future.
Chekhov's endearing and everlasting tragicomedy in which a family's cross generational dispute about the future of their beloved estate creates a clash between socialism and capitalism, legacy and reality in this sharp new adaptation by Stephen Karam, described by New York Magazine as “among the very best of his generation of playwrights.”

“Don’t fuck with a goddess.” This is the final warning to Thomas Novachek, playwright-director of an adaptation of Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch’s 1870 novel Venus in Furs. Thomas has been searching for the perfect actress to play Vanda von Dunayev, an antiquated model of a dominatrix. Enter Vanda Jordan - very late for her audition - whose charm and steely persistence get her a shot at the role. When the audition begins, the traditional roles of director and actor fall away, and Thomas eventually finds himself losing control of the script and the audition altogether. Challenging, topical, and sexy, Venus in Fur is a 90-minute two-hander that sheds light on power dynamics in the theatre and in the bedroom.

Our story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. Into the Woods is a story about individuals; what forces shape our sense of self, what lies we tell ourselves, and what binds one individual to another.
