In THE AMATEURS, a scrappy troupe of pageant players races across 14th-century Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death — and medieval subscribers. The arrival of a mysterious new actor sends Hollis, the leading lady, in search of answers that can only be found off-script… and soon one century’s plague begins to look a lot like another, more recent, one. This wildly inventive and funny new work examines the origins of creativity: When does a crisis destroy art, and when does it set it spinning? Directed by Oliver Butler, Obie Award-winning director of THE OPEN HOUSE.
THE BEAST IN THE JUNGLE
Directed and Choreographed by Susan Stroman
Book by David Thompson
Music by John Kander
From five-time Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman, legendary composer John Kander, and playwright David Thompson comes a stunningly original new work — fusing drama, dance and music. Adapted from Henry James’ classic 1903 novella, THE BEAST IN THE JUNGLE is a journey into the psyche of John Marcher, a man haunted by personal demons, whose great yet unfulfilled love affair with an unforgettable woman spans decades and continents. With a swirling, waltz-inspired instrumental score, and dazzling choreography that traverses the worlds of ballet and contemporary dance, this powerful and romantic tale of love and loss reunites the remarkable creative team behind The Vineyard’s acclaimed production of THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS. This production is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
