Fast, Funny, and Ferocious...Carol is a first-year college student who is frustrated in class. She visits her professor, John, in his office for help. What happens next behind closed doors will explore the limits of power, gender conflict, political correctness, and the wonders of higher education. OLEANNA is likely to provoke more arguments than any play this year. --Frank Rich, The New York Times

In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town's most basic fears and suspicions. Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, Arthur Miller's searing portrait of a community engulfed by superstition, madness, paranoia and malice remains one of his most produced plays. “I speak my own sins; I cannot judge another. I have no tongue for it.” - Arthur Miller, The Crucible

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, URINETOWN is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. A terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has crippled a Gotham-like industrial city. In a mad attempt to regulate water consumption, the government has outlawed the use of private toilets! “Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, URINETOWN catapults the ‘comedic romp’ into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.” – Music Theatre International

In October 1998 Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. Soon after the brutal beating, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project began year-long interviews with two hundred town residents. The Laramie Project was born from those interviews. The brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, an openly gay twenty-one year old student, sparked a dialogue about hate crimes that rocked the nation and continues to this day. “There is that sense of a stately procession through which swims a stirring medley of emotions: anger, sorrow, bewilderment and, most poignantly, a defiant glimmer of hope.” – Ben Brantley, NY Times
