Southern Comfort

Anspacher Theater

February 23-March 27, 2016

Southern Comfort is a new musical that looks set to continue the Public Theater's tradition of ground-breaking musical theater, following the success of Hamilton and Fun Home. This bluegrass-scored show follows three transgender couples living in rural Georgia, as they wrestle with their relationships, identities and the hostile community around them.

Dry Powder

Martinson Hall

March 1-April 24, 2016

Homeland's Claire Danes and The Office's John Krasinski lead the cast of the sharp new play set in the high stakes world of investment banking. Centered on the desperate scramble for influence after a private equity firm is embroiled in a PR disaster, Dry Powder is written by Sarah Burgess and directed by Tony nominee Thomas Kail (Hamilton).

Head of Passes

Newman Theater

March 15-April 17, 2016

Set at the mouth of the Mississippi river, Head of Passes transplants the Book of Job to the not too distant future, where the waters are on the rise. Tony winner Phylicia Rashad (A Raisin in the Sun) stars as God-fearing matriarch Shelah, whose birthday celebrations are overshadowed by a sense of impending, heaven-sent tragedy.
