ONCE ON THIS ISLAND 
From the Tony-winning creators of RAGTIME and SEUSSICAL comes a glorious, Caribbean-infused family musical of enormous heart and magical wisdom. Set in Haiti in the early 20th Century, ISLAND follows the story’s young heroine, Ti Moune, as she uses the power of love and storytelling to bring together a community torn apart by racial and economic difference. Full of capricious gods, island magic, and joyous dance numbers, Olney’s production is directed by Alan Muraoka, proprietor of Sesame Street’s Hooper’s Store since 1997. (Recommended for ages 5 and up)

THE PIANO LESSON 
Is it really possible that Olney hasn’t done a play by August Wilson, one of our country’s most gifted and celebrated playwrights? We’ll change that with his 1990 Pulitzer-winner, THE PIANO LESSON. Wilson’s play weaves the powerful tale of an African-American family in 1936 Pittsburgh struggling to face its past and move into the future. Boy Willie, Bereneice, Doaker and Wining Boy are among the most enduring characters yet written for the American stage. (Recommended for ages 12 and up)

AVENUE Q 
When a show opens with a song called “What Do You Do With a B.A. in English?”, sung by a lead puppet named Princeton, you know you’re in for something exciting. And that’s what you’ll get with the seismically hilarious, seriously-for-adults Tony-winning Best Musical of 2004. Songs like “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist,” “The Internet Is For Porn” and “If You Were Gay” rocketed AVENUE Q to the list of longest-running Broadway shows, satirizing (with its very big heart) the “you can do anything” message of kids’ shows from the 70s and 80s. Princeton and friends Kate Monster, Christmas Eve, and Gary Coleman might not be special in the grand scheme, but they’re awfully special to each other – and that’s even more important. (Recommended for ages 16 and up with parental advisement due to adult language and themes)

COLOSSAL 
Sure to be the “must-see” new play of 2014, COLOSSAL is an extraordinary story of emotional and physical endurance, love, and family. Structured like a football game (performed in four quarters with a pre-show training session and half-time show), COLOSSAL tells in vivid, physical flashback the story of Young Mike, a college football player who took a hit in a game that left him paralyzed from the waist down, confined to a wheelchair. Broken emotionally and physically, Mike now relives the memory of his accident with the help of a live nine-person football squad onstage, finally confronting his demons in the play’s extremely moving and uplifting conclusion. Winner of the Kennedy Center’s Jean Kennedy Smith Playwriting Award. (Recommended for ages 14 and up)

AWAKE AND SING 
Odets’ 1935 play follows the Bergers, a Jewish family from the Bronx trying to make ends meet during the Depression.

Widely recognized as a classic of the American theater, AWAKE AND SING! is directed by Kimberly Senior, fresh off her success with Pulitzer-winner DISTRACTED at Lincoln Center.
