Colossal

Sure to be the “must-see” new play of 2014, COLOSSAL is an extraordinary story of emotional and physical endurance, love, and family. Structured like a football game (performed in four quarters with a pre-show training session and half-time show), COLOSSAL tells in vivid, physical flashback the story of Young Mike, a college football player who took a hit in a game that left left him paralyzed from the waist down. Mike now relives the memory of his accident with the help of a live nine-person football squad onstage, finally confronting his demons in the play’s extremely powerful and uplifting conclusion. Featuring Michael Patrick Thornton, star of ABC's Grey's Anatomy spin-off Private Practice. Winner of the Kennedy Center’s Jean Kennedy Smith Playwriting Award. (Recommended for ages 14 and up)

Awake and Sing!

Odets’ 1935 play follows the Bergers, a Jewish family from the Bronx trying to make ends meet during the Depression. The family’s matriarch Bessie – one of the most spectacular roles in the American canon – will stop at nothing to keep her family together… even if it means ripping her children’s dreams apart. Widely recognized as a classic of the American theater, AWAKE AND SING! is directed by Kimberly Senior, fresh off her success with Pulitzer-winner DISTRACTED at Lincoln Center.
