MARISOL

By José Rivera

Dates TBA

Cosmic chaos erupts in this apocalyptic comedy of urban realities and guardian angels. Marisol Perez, a young single professional woman living in the asphalt jungle of the Bronx, finds herself sucked into a whirlpool of homelessness, violence and racism when her guardian angel deserts her to fight in what may be the final battle in heaven. Playbill.com

Winner of the 1993 Obie Award. An apocalyptic urban fantasy which urges society to ‘wake up’ and somehow find a way to recover the long-lost and much-needed compassion for our fellow man, as this is the only way to save our world.” —Dramatists Play Service

…Rivera’s cruelly slanted world view…is fascinating.” —NY Post

“An urban nightmare that grows increasingly bleaker for its young heroine, “Marisol” is a dark fantasia that reflects a number of the social and spiritual troubles of the early 1990s.” — The New York Times

Marisol is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.


SKELETON CREW

By Dominique Morisseau

Dates: TBA

At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit is on shaky ground. Each of the workers have to make choices on how to move forward if their plant goes under. Shanita has to decide how she’ll support herself and her unborn child, Faye has to decide how and where she’ll live, and Dez has to figure out how to make his ambitious dreams a reality. Power dynamics shift as their manager Reggie is torn between doing right by his work family, and by the red tape in his office. Powerful and tense, Skeleton Crew is the third of Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit cycle trilogy. ⁠—Samuel French

“Ms. Morisseau works her big themes on a small, closely patterned canvas.’” — The New York Times

“In “Skeleton Crew,” the American worker, cranky, caring, overburdened and endangered, is given her 21st century dramatic due.” —L.A. Times

“Skeleton Crew” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

Saint Joan is Bernard Shaw’s greatest play. At its center is the most remarkable teenage girl in
history. But who is she? The divinely-inspired savior of France? A dangerously clever
charlatan? Or a pathetically deluded country girl? It all depends on your point of view.
Whatever she is, eventually Joan is bound to become an embarrassment to the male-dominated
world she has turned upside-down. And then what? —Shaw Festival

“ Joan’s religious fanaticism, reaching us through the perspective of 500 years and then
filtered through Shaw’s imagination, becomes the protest of a plain-spoken individual
conscience. ” — The Guardian

“She had appeared to violate the rules. She was warned. She was given an explanation.
Nevertheless, she persisted. And that persistence, deadlier than the kind
that earned Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren her infamous rebuke, led directly to Joan’s
death at the stake. — The Buffalo News

They’ve got a plan. Leo and Lizzy Martinez want to be the smartest kids in the world! The
children of hardworking immigrants, big brother Leo has convinced his little sis that being smart
is the key to helping their family escape a tough, uncertain reality. The first step in the plan—Leo
will win the local TV kids’ quiz show. But when their parents refuse to let him join the quiz team,
Lizzy learns there’s something deeper driving Leo—something that makes life that much more
challenging and unpredictable for her brother and her family. Seeing her brother’s spirit broken,
Lizzy is determined to grow up, give up her dreams and rescue the plan to see it through. Along
the way, she and Leo discover that it takes more than being serious and “smart” to save a family
and one another. The Smartest Girl in the World takes a look at the bonds of family and the key
to facing life’s challenges together. — Dramatic Publishing

are full of determination and the desire to succeed.” — www.talkinbroadway.com

Lovers Queenie and Burrs decide to throw the party-to-end-all-parties in their Manhattan
apartment. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, Queenie’s
wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black. As the decadence is reaching a climax, so
is Burrs’ jealousy, which erupts and sends him into a violent rage. Gun in hand and inhibitions
abandoned, Burrs turns on Queenie and Black. The gun gets fired, but who’s been shot? Andrew
Lippa’s Wild Party is a favorite of universities and theatre companies that like to push the
envelope. Creative potential leaps from its pages. If staged in an intimate space, the audience
might feel as if they’re party guests, themselves! — Musical Theatre International

“Tasty stew of jazz, blues, gospel and Tin Pan Alley… a sexy, sweaty, gloriously disorienting
voyage.”— Chicago Tribune

“…Tonally eclectic score vibrates with passion and memorable melodic hooks.”— Variety

“The infectious score by Andrew Lippa has a contemporary feel and offers energetic character
numbers, impassioned ballads, and comical charm songs. …Produces fully realized characters
that are realistically flawed and conflicted.” — Talkin’ Broadway

Andrew Lippa’s Wild Party Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre

International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com
