2019 - 2020 Season

Our Artistic Staff Introduces this Season's Shows



A note from Artistic Director, Nathaniel Shaw:

“Our 2019-2020 season will be a fascinating flight, again exploring lands both near and far, some fantastical and some hardened and real. It is a season that runs the gamut of human emotion, brimming with hilarity, pain, and resounding love.

We continue our commitment to developing new plays, while also remaining your home for Broadway musicals, fresh looks at beloved classics, and entertainment for the entire family.”
