The PrivateBank Theatre (formerly Bank of America Theatre) Fun Home
 
One of the most groundbreaking productions ever to hit Broadway, FUN HOME is the winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, FUN HOME features music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and direction by Sam Gold, whose work on this production earned them the 2015 Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book and Best Direction. FUN HOME introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family - her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father - that connect with her in surprising new ways. Chicago Tribune raves "Exquisite. An emotional powerhouse that never lets you out of its embrace for a moment." The New York Times exclaims "The best new musical to open this season. A rare beauty that pumps fresh air into Broadway. FUN HOME occupies the place where we all grew up, and will never be able to leave. WE'RE HOME."

The Hypocrites at The Den Theatre Cinderella At The Theater Of Potatoes
 
Adapted from Pauline Viardot-García's 1904 opera Cendrillon and many of her other compositions, Andra Velis Simon's musical-play is an elegantly irreverent exploration of the classic fairy tale.

Give It All Back Nov 20 - Dec 18, 2016  
Sideshow Theatre Company at Victory Gardens Theater - Biograph Give It All Back
 
In a swank French hotel room in the mid-1960s, an artist hides out from a world that's turned on him. As a cavalcade of familiar faces tries to break down his door, he smokes, talks, drinks and tries not to think about acoustic versus electric. But when a prime career opportunity lands on the table, he has to decide which version of himself he wants to be, and how to keep the past from bubbling up beneath him. Calamity West delivers a hilariously sardonic examination of how you hold on to your art when everyone else thinks that it's theirs.
