Martinson Hall

Until December 18, 2016

Exploring an America on the edge of industrial collapse, Sweat follows the inhabitants of a working class neighbourhood whose economic woes spur on two of their number to commit a terrible crime. Thrilling and deeply felt, Sweat is the latest work from Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined) and has already earned considerable acclaim from critics.

Party People

Anspacher Theater

Until December 11, 2016

First premiering at Berkeley Rep in 2014, award-winning ensemble Universes bring their highly popular musical play to New York this fall for a limited run. A time-relevant exploration into the often fraught relationship between the original Black Panthers and the Young Lords civil rights groups, the action takes place at an art gallery where the two movements hold one of their annual reunions. This exciting and innovative work comes to New York in time for the 50th anniversary of the Black Panthers.

Tiny Beautiful Things

Shiva Theatre

Until December 31, 2016

Oscar nominee Nia Vardolos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) makes her New York stage debut in her own adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's Tiny Beautiful Things. Directed by Tony winner Thomas Kail (Hamilton), this moving and witty play about human connection centers on anonymous advice columnist Sugar, and how her readers' queries help her overcome troubles in her own life.
