CLYBOURNE PARK
By Bruce Norris

Tuesday-Saturday, April 29-May 3 @ 8pm
Sunday, May 4 @ 2 pm


2011 Pulitzer Prize and 2013 Tony Award Winner

"Vital, sharp-witted and ferociously smart (The New York Times)," Clybourne Park pits Race against Real Estate in Bruce Norris' Olivier Award-winning play. Two generations of characters dance around social politics in one house on two afternoons, 50 years apart. In 1959, a white couple causes uproar in a middle-class neighborhood for selling their home to a black family. Fast forward to 2009 and the stakes have changes, but the debate is strikingly similar. This razor sharp social comedy reveals how far our ideas about race and gentrification have evolved--or have they? Contains adult language. Clybourne Park is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play services, Inc., New York.

CABARET
Music and Lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb
Book by Joe Masteroff

Tuesday-Saturday, April 29-May 3 @ 8pm
Saturday, May 3 @ 2 pm

The scene is a nightclub in Berlin, as the 1920's are drawing to a close. The Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience to the show and assures them that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the Cabaret. The Emcee's use of music expands the thoughts and ideas presented in the spoken dialogue and develops them into larger themes. On the train to Berlin, we find Cliff, a struggling young American writer, and Ernst, a German who smuggle something across borders and into the city. History is in the process of being made. The audience is also introduced to Sally Bowles, a performer at the seedy club, who moves in with Cliff. Together, these characters must work their way through the struggles of blooming relationships, and dwindling finances, all under the continually growing shadow of the Nazi Party. Contains adult language, violance, and sexual/mature content
