A Brooklyn Boy is a riveting spoken-word performance that portrays Steven Prescod's coming-of-age story, taking audiences on a journey from adversity to personal triumph. Born in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood to a Grenadian mother and a Guyanese father, Steven was only 1 year old when his father was incarcerated. Steven grew up in a house surrounded by a variety of relatives who all had an impact on his life, many of whom are among the 32 characters he plays throughout the show.
As an impressionable teenager, despite his efforts to break free from his neighborhood's unyielding grip, Steven was constantly pulled back, ultimately leading to his arrest. While facing a seven-year jail sentence, Steven could have become another statistic or headline. Instead, he took a second chance at life.
Tood, Weetsie, and Sybill are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war, and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career setback, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women, and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self-worth.

The production takes audiences on a deeply personal, high-energy journey into the private and public life of this famed Underground Railroad conductor, spiritual icon, revolutionary, and entrepreneur, whose life spanned nine decades and still influences the consciousness of people throughout the world.

A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest's raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play With No Name, in a new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures — except for the protagonist — and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him.
In this play, acclaimed French playwright Fabrice Melquiothighlights how it is impossible to fully understand the brilliance and madness of Jackson Pollock without studying his marriage to artist Lee Krasner. Pollock explores the charged empty space between Pollock (performed by Jim Fletcher) and Krasner (performed by Birgit Huppuch); between his genius and her spirit; between the inhibitions of the former and the frustrations of the latter.
In an era rife with gun violence perpetrated by men, Shooter is the story of a shooter-massacre stopped before it can happen. When Jim sees a teenage boy with two shotguns beneath his trench coat nearing the entrance of the local high school, Jim pulls his own firearm and stops a potential massacre. Jim is a hero. But as more details about the incident are uncovered, what really happened becomes a lot less clear. Shooter is a human tale focusing on the fallout among three friends, each of whom may have contributed in some way to the would-be shooting.
Becca is taking a break from college to stay with her sister Haley in the newly gentrified neighborhood of Brooklyn. When she discovers her sister and her boyfriend are frequenting hip gatherings at an abandoned aquarium, she falls into a world of skin walking, the band Guacamole Raccoon, government-sponsored drugs, and a mysterious giant sea turtle in what seems to be an empty tank. A companion piece to Pigeon Spikes, this is the second installment of the United States of a Mirror trilogy.
Three on a Match, by Rhett Martinez, is an allegorical drama examining the legacy of state terrorism in Latin America. It will be the 50th anniversary production of IATI Theater Todo Vanguardia, a performing arts organization devoted to contemporary, cutting-edge Latino works. The drama examines, absurdly and gravely, the terrifying plague of "disappearances" during Argentina's "Dirty War" of 1974-83 and similar experiences of countries across South America in ensuing decades. Written and performed in English, it will be directed by Eric Parness.
