A Stunning World Premiere Play
With five Pulitzer, 54 Tony, 152 Obie and 42 Drama Desk Awards under its belt, the Public Theater has long been a champion of groundbreaking and thought provoking theatre, as well as a place of nurturing, inclusion and creation since its founding by Joseph Papp in 1954. Its latest 2019/20 season brings together a host of diverse, new and old voices in the theatre world as well productions that reflect today's contemporary issues, eight new works, three world premieres, an NYC premiere and two major revivals amongst them!
One of those world premieres comes from the mind of Tony Award-winning theatre maker Richard Nelson, who returns to the Public Theatre with the latest work from his critically acclaimed Rhinebeck Panorama play cycle. The Michaels offers up an exquisite and moving portrait of family life in modern America, via the kitchen of family matriarch and choreographer Rose Michael. Dancing, dinner, conversation and politics collide as her family comes together in an ordinary day in their lives.
