Balm In Gilead Mar 14 - Apr 19, 2015  
Griffin Theatre Company at The Den Theatre Balm In Gilead
 
Enter the world of Frank's cafe, an all-night coffee shop on Manhattan's Upper West Side frequented by a makeshift community of dealers, junkies, hustlers, prostitutes, dreamers and runaways. BALM IN GILEAD loosely centers on Joe, a cynical drug dealer, and Darlene, a naive new arrival to the big city as their lives intersect over the course of three days. Having previously produced Wilson's The Hot L Baltimore (1990) and Fifth of July (2003), Griffin is pleased to present the celebrated playwright's first full-length work.

As thirteen year-old Connor struggles to reconcile his identity with his dream of becoming a priest and modern-day Biblical scholar Miriam wrestles to resolve her crisis of faith, they lead us through an incredible exploration on how the Bible was conceived. From ancient Judea to medieval Ireland to suburban America, The Good Book is a powerful and exuberant journey through the most influential book in Western history.

But with Herman's physical abilities declining as a normal part of aging, Everett's help at home is needed now more than ever. As Everett's career is finally taking off in the city, is it fair to ask him to compromise his own opportunities to care for his aging parents, or will he convince them that it's time to place Herman in an assisted living facility? Where do the obligations to family end?

Losing his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant, Billy, desperate to provide a decent life for his family, is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing prison, he takes his own life and is sent "up there." Returning to earth for one day 15 years later, Billy encounters the daughter he never knew. A lonely, friendless teenager, her father's reputation as a thief and a bully has haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. It's easy to understand why, of all the shows they created, Carousel was Rodgers and Hammerstein's personal favorite.
 
   
RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles Apr 14 - Apr 19, 2015  
Ford Oriental Theatre RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles
 
As "the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!" (Associated Press), RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. In addition to the updated sets that include brand new LED, High-Definition screens and multimedia content, new songs have also been included with the launch of the 2013-14 Tour. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics ("I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Hard Day's Night," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Let It Be," "Come Together," "Hey Jude" and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!

The Little Foxes May 2 - Jun 7, 2015  
Goodman Theatre The Little Foxes
 
In Hellman's turn-of-the century study of family greed, Ben and Oscar Hubbard stand to earn millions funding an industrialized cotton mill, and seek help with the initial investment from their sister Regina. The refusal of Regina's dying husband to finance their scheme sets off an explosive series of betrayals, shattering the Hubbard clan's genteel fašade and exposing their ruthless pursuit of wealth. Ferocious, funny and enduringly relevant, The Little Foxes is an absorbing chronicle of the dark side of the American Dream and wealth's corrupting power--and "one of the most enjoyably chilling chapters in the history of melodrama" (The New York Times).
