Hedwig And The Angry Inch (Musical)  //  October 28 - December 3, 2023
Winner of 4 Tony Awards! Hedwig is an “internationally ignored song stylist”, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock ‘n’ roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just “an angry inch.” This outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is dazzlingly performed by Hedwig in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine backed by a hard-rocking band.


Babes In Ho-lland (Musical)  // January 13 - February 4, 2024
A world premiere! In the sunless Pittsburgh winter of 1996, two co-eds connect over a shared love for R&B girl groups but quickly discover something deeper. While attending a predominantly white college, these two Black students create their own bubble of self discovery, music, and sanctuary. The stress of love, financial hardship, and the persistent lack of privacy threaten to destroy it. A finalist for the 2020 Bay Area Playwright’s Festival.

A Midsummer Night's Dream (Play)  // Opens March 16, 2024
The rom-com we know and love is more mischievous and dangerous than ever! Passing Strange Director, William Hodgson returns to the Ashby Stage to unearth more magic than you’ve seen in this royal romp of teenage lovers caught in an enchanted forest of havoc.

Best Available (Play)  // Opens May 18, 2024
City Repertory Theater company launches a search for a new artistic director. Who is the best available candidate? Rising star and hometown hero Jonathan Spector interviewed dozens of theater makers to create this satirical tale. Some subjects are much too serious to be dramas.  

Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties (Play)  // Opens July 20, 2024
Five people named Betty clash and connect in this queer fantasia of riotous self-discovery, smeared with sex, rage and solidarity! Can a dinner party, a hand mirror, and a play within a play be the keys for turning solitude into understanding? Even happiness? This play is a wildly raw, comic exploration of the human heart, and other body parts.

Choir Boy (Musical)  // Opens September 21, 2024
Pharus attends the  Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys and is the lead singer for their renowned choir. He is not only open about his queer identity, he also questions long-held traditions. With contemporary arrangements of traditional African American spirituals and step choreography,
Choir Boy is a brilliant, moving, and uplifting play from Academy Award winning playwright, Tarell Alvin McCraney. This is not a coming-out story. It's a story about the power of self-love.

Thirty-Six (Play)  // Opens November 16, 2024
Dang, dating sure is hard these days. But don’t worry, this show will flirt its way into your heart and hit like a one night stand! A hot and loaded experience brings the new age of dating to life onstage. Opposites who attract, David and Jenny answer the NY Times “36 questions that lead to love.”
