Oklahoma!

(Previews begin Sept. 27, 2018, opens Oct. 7, 2018, closes Nov. 11, 2018)

Seventy-five years ago, Rodgers & Hammertsein’s “Oklahoma!” opened on Broadway and revolutionized American musical theater. This new production is a radical rethinking of the classic, visually pared down and with an emphasis on the dark forces and anxieties that lie beneath its sunny optimism. A seven-piece band plays new arrangments of R&H standards, such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say” and the title song.

On Beckett

(Previews begin Sept. 26, 2018, opens Oct. 3, 2018, closes Nov. 4, 2018)

(1 hr 30 mins)

Conceived and performed by master clown and Tony Award-winning actor Bill Irwin, the new play is an intimate exploration of Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett. Drawing fron “Waiting for Godot,” “Endgame,” “Texts for Nothing” and other works, Irwin showcases the Irish writer’s matchless language, humor and humanity. Appearing with Irwin in the New York premiere is Finn O’Sullivan, an eighth-grade student at Saint David’s School in Manhattan and a prolific actor.

Once on This Island

(Previews began Nov. 9, 2017, opened Dec. 3, 2017)

(1 hr 30 mins, no intermission)

Art comes close to mirroring real life in this revival of the 1990 musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, set on an idyllic Caribbean island devastated by a great storm. A peasant girl from one side of the island falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. Will true love win out over cultural differences?

Paradiso: Chapter One

(1 hr)

Inspired by Dante’s “The Divine Comedy,” in which a man journeys through the Nine Circles of Hell, this interactive theatrical experience takes the escape-room genre to the next level.

Special effects add to the emotional and psychological experience.

A cast of characters—a money-hungry psychiatrist and suspected killer, her wealthy husband, a deranged patient and a handsome detective—end up intertwined in this mystery whodunit full of laughs and thrills.
