Everyone has baggage in this timely mother-daughter musical about escaping and belonging from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright who wrote the book for the Tony Award-winning In the Heights. Join Olivia and her mother on their cross-country road trip. Mothers may teach you where you come from—but they can be the trickiest things.

Oct 10–Nov 10, 2019

Directed by renowned artist Taye Diggs, and written by Keenan Scott II, one of today’s boldest new voices, Thoughts of a Colored Man blends language, music, and dance. Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st Century. Set over a single day, this richly theatrical mosaic goes beyond the rhythms of the basketball court and the boisterousness of the barbershop to shed brilliant light into the hearts and minds of a community of men searching for their most triumphant selves.


By Jaclyn Backhaus

Directed by Jenny Koons

Nov 29–Dec 22, 2019

This rollicking adventure tells a hilarious, true(ish) history of the Grand Canyon. We invite you along on a journey that throws the history book—and all the men inside it—out the window in this subversive retelling of the one-armed explorer John Powell and his exploration of the American West. Strap in for this uncharted, uproarious journey.


By Noah Diaz

Directed by Taylor Reynolds

Co-production with Playwrights Realm

Feb 6–Mar 1, 2020

See Richard go. See Spot bark. See Dick cry. See Sally sign. See Jane struggle after a lifetime in her brother’s shadow. The classic world of “Dick and Jane” is beginning to fracture in this witty and raw look into one dysfunctional and dissembling family.


By Donnetta Lavinia Grays

Directed by Tamilla Woodard

Co-production with WP Theater

Apr 2–26, 2020

This brand-new fable of penance is filled with humor, heart, and music. When a town is running low on compassion and a man is stripped of companionship, just one kind stranger can tip the scales. Join in community as one passionate storyteller spins a supernatural tale of loneliness seduced by kindness and asks us “what do we owe each other?”


By Euripides

Directed by Mike Donahue

Apr 30–May 24, 2020

This is not your English teacher’s Greek tragedy. Dionysus is totally over your drama, and he’s going to incite the women of the land to raise some hell in the greatest party in recorded history. Closing the season with a political exclamation point from the birthplace of Democracy, The Bacchae hits the Mainstage at the same moment our nation surges into its primary elections.
