Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment

The perfect Broadway musical. Behold The Book of Mormon. An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything.

A happy-creepy reminder that Mr. McDonagh can still work his double-edged, sinister magic on a stage, making breathless, alarmed, and deeply satisfied dupes of us all.

Why See Hangmen?

north american premiere

After an absence from the stage of nearly a decade, Oliver and Oscar winner Martin McDonagh makes a triumphant return with Hangmen, his new play that explores the death of capital punishment in Britain. Already a hit over on the West End at the Royal Court Theatre, Hangmen is replete with McDonagh's voice, darkly comic, thrilling and uniquely entertaining. You may know him from his work on Seven Psychopaths and In Bruges. If you enjoyed them, the macabre and witty Hangmen is the play for you.


In his small pub in Oldham in the north of England, Harry holds something of a local celebrity allure; his claim to fame? He is the second most well-known hangmen in the country, second only to Albert Pierrepoint. But what is Harry to do on the day they've abolished hanging, and to a larger extent, the death penalty? Meandering in the background of the pub, behind the cub reporters and sycophantic pub regulars who are dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, a stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit.
