Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
By Alex Timbers & Michael Friedman
Directed by Executive Artistic Director, Brian Katz
Music Direction by Armando Fox
Sept 27 – Oct 27, 2019

A mix of historical fact and invention, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson uses the story of America’s controversial seventh president to investigate the attraction and terrors of American populism, using a blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and infectious emo rock. BBAJ asks the question: is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect them? What if they’re a genocidal maniac? What if they’re really, really hot?

Cloud 9

Cloud 9
by Caryl Churchill
directed by Allie Moss
Nov 15 – Dec 15, 2019

A masterpiece from one of the greatest dramatists of our time, Could 9 is about sexual politics in colonial Africa and modern-day Britain, in which all our assumptions about sex and gender are stunningly exploded.    Cloud Nine is about relationships – between women and men, men and men, women and women. It is also about sex, work, mothers, power, generations, politics, and money, which is why this classic play feels as urgent today as when it made Churchill a household name.

How to Transcend a Happy Marriage

REGIONAL PREMIERE
How to Transcend A Happy Marriage

by Sarah Ruhl
directed by Adam Sussman
Jan 17 – Feb 9, 2020

At a dinner party in New Jersey, two couples discuss polyamory as brought up by the introduction of a new temp, Pip, in Jane’s office. When they invite Pip and her two male partners, discussion turns to action and the exploration of unexplored desire turns animalistic, and then Jane’s daughter sees it all. How to Transcend a Happy Marriage blurs the lines of monogamy and asks how deeply friends, lovers, and strangers connect.

The Lady Scribblers

WORLD PREMIERE
The Lady Scribblers

by Michaela Goldhaber
directed by Tracy Ward
a co-production with Those Women Productions
March 6 – March 29, 2020

London 1689. A fight breaks out at the funeral of Aphra Behn, the first woman to earn her living as a playwright. Mary Pix, who writes comedies in her kitchen while waiting for her bread to rise, wants to get her plays on the stage, but Christopher Rich, who runs the only royally sanctioned theatre in London, sneers at her and refuses to allow any more plays by women. Playwright Goldhaber spent over twenty years of researching and directing the work of women playwrights of the Restoration, and in this play, she borrows their style to tell their story in a delightful farce.

Pygmalion

Pygmalion
by George Bernard Shaw
directed by Executive Artistic Director, Brian Katz

April 24 – March 17

In this radical reduction of Shaw’s most famous play (equally well known for the musical adaptation, My Fair Lady) Custom Made presents this classic down to its essential core. This battle for identity and independence between Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins feels written for today’s economic and sexual conflicts and proves Shaw the most prescient of the early modern masters.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
by Stephen Sondheim, Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart
directed by Stuart Bousel
music direction by Brian Allan Hobbs
Jun 5 – July 19, 2020

Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. This unforgettable, hysterical musical has “something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”
