Hamilton  
Forrest Theatre Hamilton
 
The biggest Broadway show since The Book of Mormon has hit the road on its first ever national tour! Written by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Lin Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is a true landmark of American culture, tearing up the musical theatre rulebook with a score that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., and a cast of ethnically diverse actors in the roles of the Founding Fathers. The story centers on Alexander Hamilton, one of our most important (and colorful) characters, who rose from his humble orphaned beginnings to play a major role in making America the country it is today.
   
Matilda The Musical  
The Media Theatre Matilda The Musical
 
Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence, and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however - the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!
   
The Playboy of the Western World  
Sedgwick Theater The Playboy of the Western World
 
A young man walks into a rural tavern and declares that he has murdered his abusive father in self-defense. He is beloved by the locals and heralded as a hero until the truth of his past is revealed. A riotous comedy, J.M. Synge's timely tale looks at the power of personality over facts, challenges the wisdom of popular opinion, and asks us what separates criminality from heroism. Performed in rotating repertory with The Synge Triptych as part of the The Synge Festival.
   
Ragtime  
Arden Theatre Ragtime
 
This Tony Award-winning tale follows the intersection of cultures, classes, and nationalities - all fighting for their American dream in New York City at the turn of the 20th century - reimagined for today's audience.
   
The Synge Triptych  
Sedgwick Theater The Synge Triptych
 
Three of Synge's celebrated short plays will be performed in one evening. An older husband pretends that he is dead in order to test his younger wife's fidelity in a black comedy, In the Shadow of the Glen. In The Tinker's Wedding, a gypsy woman tries to find respectability by convincing a local priest to marry her to her sweetheart, only to find that marriage can be an expensive and soul-compromising business. And in his finest tragedy, Riders to the Sea, Synge depicts a family's hopeless and fatal struggle to make a living off the impersonal but relentlessly cruel sea. Presented in rotating repertory with The Playboy of the Western World as part of The Synge Festival
