  List Of Shows Coming Soon
Yankee Tavern Feb 20 - Mar 22, 2015  
American Blues Theater at The Greenhouse Theater Center Yankee Tavern
 
Since its debut in 2008, Yankee Tavern has met with rave reviews from critics and theatergoers across the nation including The New York Times calling Yankee Tavern "Intriguing and absorbing!" and the Daily News says it is "One helluva show by a superb playwright who has slyly fashioned an edge-of-your-seat thriller." The jukebox inside the Yankee Tavern stopped in the middle of "Bye, bye, Miss American Pie" as the first hijacked plane impacted the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11. Inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple (Ian Paul Custer* and Darci Nalepa) finds themselves caught up in conversations of what happened that day and who is telling the truth. Dietz's acclaimed and dramatic thriller is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending work of theatrical power that grips the audience until the final word.

Forty years later, as the truths of the past are uncovered, the true consequences of this "unacceptable" romance come to light.

Suppressed for more than 40 years, this gripping opera from Mieczyslaw Weinberg has emerged once again -- and has already electrified audiences in Austria, Warsaw and London. Now the Civic Opera House will play home to the story of Walter and Liese, a West German diplomat and his wife, who are currently bound for a new posting in Brazil circa the 1960s. Unbeknownst to Walter, Liese is traveling with some extra baggage: the secret that she once served as an SS officer in Auschwitz. But the private haunting of her hidden past may soon become public knowledge -- as Liese becomes convinced that she recognizes a fellow passenger as her former prisoner. Guilt, denial, fear, courage, truth, lies and love all buoy this unforgettable emotional experience, which moves seamlessly between two narrative realms: the pristine deck of the luxury liner and the shadowy horrors of the death camp below.

Playwright David Greig's captivating sequel to Shakespeare's Scottish play explores one man's attempt to restore peace in a country consumed by war. Macbeth is dead. Under cover of night, the English army has swept in, killed the tyrant and claimed Scotland's seat of power. But efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control. Fierce one minute and funny the next, Greig's extraordinary ability to infuse a dark story with rich humor results in a lively, vital examination of power—illuminating uncanny parallels between Scotland's medieval and present-day political landscapes.
