FIRST PREVIEW: September 10, 2019
OPENING NIGHT: October 6, 2019

It stunned audiences with a sold-out run at New York Theatre Workshop. Now, Slave Play is coming to Broadway. Written by Jeremy O. Harris, “one of the most promising playwrights of his generation” (Vogue), this “dazzling mix of satire and psychodrama” (The New York Times) is directed by two-time NAACP and Obie Award® winner Robert O’Hara. At the MacGregor Plantation, nothing is as it seems, and yet everything is as it seems. It’s an antebellum fever-dream as three interracial couples converge to rip open history at the intersection of race, love, sex, and sexuality in 21st-century America. Don’t miss this “furiously entertaining…altogether staggering new play.” (The New York Times)

"DANCE! BROADWAY SHOWSTOPPERS"

As the classic quote goes, in a Broadway musical, "when words aren’t enough, you sing, and when singing isn’t enough, you dance!" A dance number is a musical's 'close-up' - the highest expression of emotion on the stage; whether that emotion is happiness, conflict…or love.

In Dance! Broadway Showstoppers, these themes are represented by show-stopping dance numbers that have become iconic; they are the dance numbers you immediately remember when you think of 42nd Street...On The Town...and A Chorus Line.

Dance! Broadway Showstoppers is a celebration of Broadway’s greatest choreography – a joyous...sexy...thrilling combination of Broadway's best dancers and its finest musicians. The dance numbers are recreated as they were originally intended by dancers from the original productions.

COMING TO BROADWAY IN 2019-2020

"COMPANY"

Starring Patti LuPone and Katrina Lenk

FIRST PREVIEW: March 2, 2020
OPENING NIGHT: March 22, 2020

The eagerly anticipated revival of the Stephen Sondheim/George Furth musical Company, which received an Olivier Award-winning West End production under the direction of Marianne Elliott in 2018, is making its way to Broadway.

This groundbreaking production of the musical, that abandons traditional gender assignations of some of the show’s characters. Starring as the central character of “Bobbie” will be Tony winner Katrina Lenk (The Band’s Visit). Bobbie is about to celebrate her 35th birthday, but finds herself having trouble understanding and embracing commitment. She spends the show’s duration examining the marriages of several of her friends, attempting to sort out her aversion to matrimony.

Joining Lenk in the production will be two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone (Evita, Gypsy) as the acerbic Joanne, one of Bobbi’s married friends who sings the show’s Act II showstopper “The Ladies Who Lunch.” LuPone is reprising her performance from the London run of this revival.

Company, which originally opened on Broadway in 1970, followed a male character named Bobby. Director Marianne Elliott (Angels in America, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nigh-time), has reimagined the musical with a female in the lead, switched the genders of some of the show’s characters including turning girlfriends “Marta, Kathy and April” into “PJ, Theo and Andy,” and has included a same-sex couple, turning “Paul and Amy” into “Paul and Jamie.” All alterations to characters and lyrics were made with the blessing and input of Stephen Sondheim. The production proved a critical hit and audience favorite in London.

The Company revival will feature choreography by Liam Steele. Sets and costumes will be designed by Bunny Christie, lighting design by Neil Austin, and sound design by Ian Dickinson (Autograph Sound). Chris Fisher will design the show’s illusions.

"THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE"
ARRRRR RETURNING TO BROADWAY!

The Pirates of Penzance returns to Broadway in John Rando’s star-studded, immersive, and hilariously silly production choreographed by Joshua Bergasse. It will be the 27th production of Pirates on a Broadway stage and the first Broadway production since 1982!

The revival expands on the sold-out production at Barrington Stages that brought joy to audiences AND critics alike:

“It’s hard to imagine more ideal entertainment than the exhilarating production of The Pirates of Penzance.”
– Charles Isherwood - The New York Times

“Rejoice greatly!….it’s funny – wildly, gloriously funny…Should this "Pirates" make it to Broadway, it'll be none too soon!”
– Terry Teachout - The Wall Street Journal

“Pirates is a show we need to revisit regularly, a model of silliness that is also tender and witty and accessibly melodic and as surefire and confident as a cannon.”
– Jesse Greene - New York Magazine

“An appraisal of this “Pirates’’ should start with the artistry of Rando and Bergasse, whose electric staging and choreography fuse to form a propulsive force that blasts away any cobwebs that might cling to the 1879 Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.There is not a better time to be had in the theater...than at this exhilarating production.”
– Don Aucoin - The Boston Globe

"39 STEPS" ended its most recent run at the Union Square Theatre - "just 39 Steps East of Union Square" on January 3, 2016. From April 1, 2015 TO January 3, 2016 the show played 317 performances to 61,590 people, each of whom got a free red #nosie!

Previously, it ran on Broadway from January 15, 2008 through January 10, 2010, and then transferred to New World Stages where it ran from April 15, 2010 to January 16, 2011. The show played total of 1135 performances in its FIRST New York run.

"39 STEPS" is the two-time Tony Award-winning hit comedy that Ben Brantley of the New York Times calls "Absurdly Enjoyable." It's a CRITIC'S PICK from both Time Out NY and
The New York Times, whose Ben Brantley calls it
"THIS CENTURY'S MOST TIRELESS AND HIGH-PROFILE EXAMPLE
OF THE LITTLE SHOW THAT COULD"
"DELIGHTFULLY DIZZY...VIRTUOSIC"..."GALLANT AND GIGGLY!" "

39 Steps is a comedic spoof of the classic 1935 film, with only 4 'insanely talented' actors portraying more than 150 characters, sometimes changing roles in the blink of an eye. The brilliantly madcap story follows our dashing hero Richard Hannay as he races to solve the mystery of The 39 Steps, all the while trying to clear his name! The show’s uproarious fast-paced 100 minutes promises to leave you gasping for breath… in a good way!

It's great fun for everyone from 9 to 99.

WITNESSED BY THE WORLD is a new play by Ronnie Cohen & Jane Beale, directed by Karen Carpenter.

Joan Ross has been haunted by the assassination of JFK since childhood. Now an acclaimed reporter and seasoned researcher, she has been re-reading the Warren Commission, reviewing old television footage and generally immersing herself in the 'facts' from that period. Most of it, she finds, is pure bunk. Ira Basil is a well-regarded Hollywood screenwriter known mainly for light comedies - his first foray into drama went so poorly he's afraid to pick up a pen.

So when Joan enters his life to help him with his next project, he just knows his career will get back on track. Together they begin to work on a script that's loosely based on a 'true life' mystery: Jack Ruby as a mafia wanna-be conned into doing a big job for the mob. But when art begins to resemble life, bad things begin to happen to Joan
