24-Hour Playwriting Project 2019

Nov. 23

A perennial favorite, the premise is simple - take four playwrights, lock them the theater overnight to create a show that will be performed on stage the very next evening. They are given a series of items, costumes, sounds and lines that must be included, all before learning the overarching theme of the play. Following a sleepless night of writing, they meet their directors after breakfast for some edits and then their scripts are whisked away to be printed. At lunch they meet the actors who will be performing their work. A few hours later, the curtain rises.The winner is determined by both the audience and a panel of professional judges.

Part of your Season Pass!

A hugely-popular event, book your seats as soon as possible. Seating is very limited.

When two couples invite a new temp, Pip, and her two male partners to dinner, discussion turns to action and the exploration of unexplored desire turns animalistic.

“Amid a wealth of terrific, clever, laugh-out-loud dialogue...are moments of total realness...” - EW.com (Entertainment Weekly)

"This new play is a subversive enchantment. It is part absurd domestic serious-comedy, part erotic magic realism, unflinching about taboos and about questioning that, just maybe, monogamy isn't enough."
-Newsday

Winner of FOUR Tony Awards (incl. Best Musical), this high-energy musical follows the lives of the mostly Hispanic-American neighborhood of Washington Heights, NYC.

IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New Yorks Washington Heights neighborhood a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Its a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.

IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

The first musical from 3-Time Tony Award Winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the Broadway smash hit Hamilton and star of Mary Poppins Returns!

"...when this musical erupts in one of its expressions of collective joy, the energy it gives off could light up the George Washington Bridge for a year or two.” - NY Times
