At the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, Laura Pels Theatre
This deliciously dark new musical comedy, based on the cult film (and the bard's Macbeth), springs to life in a sleepy Pennsylvania town (population 1,203—and dropping), where a burger-joint manager and his wife cook up a plan to super-size their lives. As their ambitions grow and the bodies fall, the couple finds out just how far they’ll go for a taste of the oh-so-tempting American dream.LEARN MORE
72 Miles To Go...
Seventy-two miles. That’s the space between Nogales, Mexico and Tucson, Arizona—and the world of distance that separates a mother at a shelter and her American-born husband and children. This premiere from Juilliard playwright Hilary Bettis (“The Americans”) follows a splintered family over 10 years of strength, struggle and love, as they face the profoundly personal drama of immigration.LEARN MORE
...what the end will be
We welcome back playwright Jiréh Breon Holder following his triumphant 2017 Underground debut, Too Heavy for Your Pocket. In this new work commissioned by Roundabout, three generations of men live under one roof and grapple with their own truths of what it means to be black and gay. It’s an exploration of pride, pain, and patience through the unflinching eyes of fathers and sons. Directed by Margot Bordelon (Too Heavy..., Something Clean).
At the Black Box Theatre
Roundabout Underground debuts its first new musical in a decade! When charismatic songwriter Harry falls for clever chorus girl Louise, all of Manhattan glitters with the blush of new love. But what happens when the sparkling fantasy begins to dissolve? Bubbling over with charm, wit, and whimsy, Darling Grenadine navigates the tension between romance and reality, light and dark, bitter and sweet. Featuring a vibrantly eclectic score and stirring book and lyrics by Daniel Zaitchik. Directed and choreographed by Michael Berresse.
Exception to the Rule
Playwright Dave Harris’s New York debut crackles with humor and suspense—confronting the tactics for surviving institutions that were not built for you. How do you make it through detention? In the worst high school in the city, six students are stuck in Room 111. They flirt. They fight. They tease. Should they follow the rules and stay put, or find an escape? Are the walls keeping them in, or are stronger forces at play?LEARN MORE
