A Special Day

Next date: Mar 23, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

On the darkest day in history, a glimmer of hope sparks between two strangers, and thus begins A Special Day.

On May 8, 1938, Hitler arrives in Rome to meet with Mussolini. While Italy celebrates the rise of Fascism, an over-worked housewife and a mysterious bachelor meet by chance. Based on Ettore Scola's 1977 Oscar-winning Italian film Una Giornata Particolare, Award-winning artists Ana Graham and Antonio Vega tell this epic story using minimalistic elements that celebrate the powerful imagination of the theater.

All The Way

Next date: Mar 23, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

  • By Robert Schenkkan.

One man. One year. One chance to change America. 1964 was a pivotal year in American history and Lyndon Baines Johnson sat at the center of it all. A master politician with towering ambition and ruthless tactics, the conflicted Texan will do whatever it takes to get the Civil Rights bill passed and secure his re-election. Meanwhile, in faraway Vietnam, a troublesome conflict looms. The winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Play, this gripping drama captures the critical moment that marked the end of an era and the shift to the political climate of today. Go all the way with LBJ, Martin Luther King, Jr., J. Edgar Hoover, Hubert Humphrey and more in this action-packed, electrifying portrayal of one of the most tumultuous times in our country’s history.

Brothers of the Dust

Darren Canady's "Brothers of the Dust," unfolds in 1950s rural Arkansas, not long after the "Little Rock Nine" faced down Gov. Orval Faubus and the Arkansas National Guard and desegregated Little Rock Central High School. But the burgeoning civil rights movement is mainly background for this formulaic but beautifully performed story of a family fighting over their divergent views of the future.

But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.
