Why See A Parallelogram?
Change Your Future
First premiering at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre in 2010, Bruce Norris' surreal comedy arrives Off-Broadway this summer for its first transfer. Helmed by returning Michael Greif, who previously directed Dear Evan Hansen and Next to Normal at the venue, this work marks his fourth collaboration with Second Stage Theatre. We follow a young woman, Bee, who is convinced of her own precognitive abilities, and sets out to reinvent her future using just a remote control.
Change your future with a remote control!
What would you do if you had the power to change your future at the click of a button? Would you stay put and deal with the outcome, or try to change your fate? Meet Bee, a young woman living in downtown Los Angeles who fervently believes that she has an uncanny ability to predict her future, and is determined to alter it, no matter the cost.
A new work from Bruce Norris, the Tony Award-winning writer behind Clybourne Park, and director of The Unmentionables and The Pain and the Itch, the concept of time-travel once again comes to the fore in this acclaimed black comedy.
