Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

"Astonishing and daring."

The New York Times

Why See Admissions?

from the Writer of Significant Other

Nominated for Outstanding Play at the 2018 Drama Desk Awards!

2018 is the year of Joshua Harmon. After building a reputation as one of the nation's most vital new voices, with plays like Bad Jews and Significant Other, this year sees two of his new works hit the New York stage. Roundabout Theatre is staging Skintight with Idina Menzel leading the cast, while Lincoln Center Theater present admissions.

Delving into the hypocrisies at the heart of liberal, moneyed America, Admissions centers on a married couple who are making sure their local school, of which they are headmaster and admissions officer, boasts as diverse a student body as possible. However, when a chance for their own son to be admitted into an Ivy league university arises, their progressive values begin to crumble. Regular Harmon collaborator Daniel Aukin directs.
