Fears, dreams, and desires intertwine in this explosive new play by Jeremy O. Harris, now returning to Broadway after a critically acclaimed run at the New York Theatre Workshop last year. Following the lives of six people living on the MacGregor, Plantation Slave Play holds up a magnifying glass to history and in turn explores race, gender, and sexuality in 21st Century America.

Classic musical theatre lovers will be overjoyed to hear that Jules Stein and Bob Merill's iconic show, Funny Girl, is returning to the Great White Way! Starring Beanie Feldstein, Jane Lynch and Ramin Karimloo, this exciting new production is helmed by Micheal Mayer (Spring Awakening) and marks nearly 60 years since the show was last seen on the main stem. Telling the autobiographical tale of comedian Fanny Brice, who found fame in the early 20th century, Funny Girl is a humorous and heartful ride through Brice's life, showing that despite her problems, her wit, and smarts kept her own parade going!
