Hamlet

Anspacher Theater

Until September 3, 2017

Poe Dameron himself Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Inside Llewyn Davis) take son the role of a lifetime in Hamlet. This new staging of The Bard's bloody tragedy is directed by Tony winner Sam Gold (Fun Home).

Tiny Beautiful Things

Newman Theater

September 19-November 12, 2017

Nia Vardalos returns to the Public Theater in this well-received drama from 2016, based on the novel by Wild author Cheryl Strayad. Adapted for the stage by Vardalos herself, this touching work is based on the true story of an anonymous online advice columnist, who drew upon her own tragic life experiences to help the thousands who bombarded her with pleas for help. Bring tissues folks, this one is a weepy for sure!

Oedipus El Rey

Shiva Theatre

October 3-November 12, 2017

The Greek tragedy gets an LA makeover in this ambitious new staging by Luis Alfaro that takes place in South Central. First premiering at San Diego Repertory Theater in 2015, the MacArthur Genius Grant winning author has cunningly updated Sophocles' tale of patricide and incest to the barrios of SoCal, where the chorus is a heavily tattooed prison gang and the oracle is an unscrupulous life coach. This New York premiere will be directed by Chay Yew at the Shiva Theater.

Office Hour

Martinson Hall

October 17-December 3, 2017

Julia Cho's taut drama makes its New York premiere, following its South Coast Repertory in 2016. Tackling the all-too-real threat of on-campus violence, Office Hour asks the audience to empathize with two very different characters; the college lecturer and a troubled student whose violent essays have flagged up concern by both staff and students alike. A prolific playwright, Cho's previous works include Durango, Satellites and 99 Histories, along with her work on Grey's Anatomy. This new production will be directed by Neel Keller.

Illyria

Anspacher Theater

October 22-November 26, 2017

The Tony Award-winning playwright and director Richard Nelson returns to the Public Theater in late 2017 with his newest world premiere drama that places the human cost of the controversial gentrification of New York City in 1958, squarely at its center. The author of the blisteringly popular Apple Family plays and the Tony-winning musicals James Joyce's The Dead and the Broadway version of Chess, his ode to the downtown NYC spirit mixes class drama with civic pride.
