CARMEN: AN AFRO-CUBAN JAZZ MUSICAL 

CARMEN: AN AFRO-CUBAN JAZZ MUSICAL

Based on the opera by Georges Bizet
Book by Moisés Kaufman and Eduardo Machado
Lyrics by Moisés Kaufman
Music Adapted by Arturo O’Farrill
Choreography Sergio Trujillo
Music Direction by Christopher Youstra
Directed by Moisés Kaufman
co-produced with Tectonic Theater Project

The most talked-about show of the season is sure to be this world premiere, directed and co-written by Tony® Award-nominee Moisés Kaufman (33 Variations,Gross IndecencyThe Laramie Project Cycle), with heralded Cuban-American playwright Eduardo Machado, and music adapted from Bizet’s opera by two-time Grammy Award-winner Arturo O’Farrill, this Carmen brings the action of one of the most sensual stories of all time to Cuba on the verge of revolution in 1958.

The star-studded creative team, along with Kaufman at the helm as director and Broadway’s Sergio Trujillo as choreographer (Jersey BoysMemphisOn Your Feet), turns Bizet’s passion-fueled opera into a sexy, swinging Afro-Cuban Jazz musical. Kaufman’s Carmen is a gun-runner for the rebels, who falls fiercely in love with José, a Batista loyalist. When Cuba’s boxing legend Camilo returns to Havana, Carmen and José’s love falls tragically apart.

MARJORIE PRIME 

MARJORIE PRIME

by Jordan Harrison

From one of the country’s most adventurous young writers (Maple and Vine, Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black) comes the tender and provocative story of Marjorie, 85 years old, who’s reinventing memories from the past with the help of Walter Prime – a hologram of her dead husband as he looked 50 years ago. The New York Times hailed the world premiere as “a tender, searching comedy... a thought-provoking play about memory, its corruption, and our insistence that technology can help us outwit death.” Starring Kathleen Butler, Michael Glenn, Michael Willis, and Artistic Associate Julie-Ann Elliott.

LITTLE RED HEN 

THEATRE IV'S
LITTLE RED HEN

“Who’ll help me plant the seed?” asks the plucky red hen as she begins the process that goes into making a loaf of her delicious bread. “Not I,” say the sheep, the cow, the horse, and the pig. But, “a hen’s gotta do what a hen’s gotta do,” and so our crimson heroine perseveres until her work is done. The tricks of the conniving fox and the hen’s common sense create an adventure with a sound moral lesson in this classic, feel good, foot-stompin’ country musical.  Recommended for ages 3 and up.

DIAL 'M' FOR MURDER 

DIAL 'M' FOR MURDER

by Frederick Knott

Alfred Hitchcock based his much-loved thriller on Knott’s deliriously spine-tingling play about a former tennis star, Tony Wendice, who has married sweet and unsuspecting Margot for her money. He arranges what he thinks is the perfect murder, but when the plot goes wrong, Inspector Hubbard from Scotland Yard (Olney Theatre stage veteran Alan Wade) – along with her old flame, the murder mystery novelist Max Halliday – mount a hair-raising investigation that comes down to the last possible, chilling moment.

BAKERSFIELD MIST 

BAKERSFIELD MIST

by Stephen Sachs

Poor Maude! Living in a trailer park, fired from her bartending job… even her best friend refused the thrift store painting she bought for her birthday. But that painting might just be… a lost Jackson Pollock! Her fate lies in the hands of world-famous curator Lionel Percy, who shows up at Maude’s trailer to determine its authenticity. What follows is a collision of class and culture, where the ‘average Joe’ might finally throw it in the face of those ‘east coast elites’. Starting Artistic Associates Donna Migliaccio and Michael Russotto. “It’s exhilarating in the extreme when a world premiere play strikes rich on every conceivable level – a perfect marriage of emotion and ideas.” – Los Angeles Times

EVITA 

EVITA

music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
lyrics by Tim Rice

Heralded for its rich score and explosive love triangle, the legendary Tony® Award-winning musical Evita tells the story of Argentina’s passionate political figure Eva Perón, whose love for her country’s descamisados (‘the shirtless ones’) was surpassed only by her naked ambition. Known for its anthem, “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” Evita will stun and delight in this intimate version of the musical that ensures you hear every note and feel every heartbeat. Helmed by the director and choreographer of last year’s hit and Helen Hayes Award winner, Colossal

THE MIKADO 

THE MIKADO

by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

Sail away this summer with scurvy pirates, star-crossed lovers, Pooh-Bah, Nanki-Poo, and of course that most manic of Modern Major Generals in Sean Graney’s “outrageously enjoyable” (Chicago Tribune) staging of two of Gilbert & Sullivan’s best-loved comic operettas. Performed by a cast of ten in promenade style (meaning you choose fixed seats or… you can decide to sit on the stage with the actors, though you’ll have to move when they tell you to!) in rotating repertory, Graney’s band of fearless actors tackle not only some of the silliest roles ever written for musical theater, but the instruments, too! The DC-area premiere of The Hypocrites follows critically-acclaimed runs at Berkeley Rep and American Repertory Theatre.
