La Calisto
May 6,8

La Calisto spices up Ovid’s Metamorphoses myth of Jove’s love for the beautiful nymph Calisto, a follower of the chaste goddess Diana. Faustini’s libretto weaves in hilarious subplots which inspired some of Cavalli’s most lyrical and inventive music, as Calisto refuses Jove in his manly appearance, but succumbs to his wooing after he disguises himself as Diana. When Jove’s wife Juno learns of his trickery and their affair, she punishes Calisto by turning her into a bear.

Performance lasts 3 hours including one 15-minute intermission. Recommended for ages 10+.

Satie et Cocteau
5/12 - 6/5
Satie et Cocteau: A Rehearsal of a Play of a Composer by a Poet, by Mike Czuba, is a play about the classical music composer Erik Satie and his complex relationship with the surrealist poet Jean Cocteau. The concept of the play is that we are watching Cocteau direct an American Actor in the role of Satie in a play that Cocteau wrote in 1939 called Soyons Vulgaires, which may or may not exist. The framework of the play borders on the absurd and the meta-theatrical, which permits the ‘staging’ of sections of Satie’s life as they suit Cocteau’s narrative. Through the arc of the play we discover Satie’s desires and philosophies about art and music while simultaneously discovering the drive behind Cocteau’s ambitions

Einstein’s Gift
8/4 - 8/28

Through the recollections of Albert Einstein, the play focuses on the life and career of German chemist Dr. Fritz Haber, who helped improve living conditions with his work on nitrogen fixation. His work was later used by the German army to produce chlorine gas used in Second Battle of Ypres in the First World War. As Dr. Haber becomes increasingly involved with the German army, the play depicts how his actions and newly forged military connections affect his relationship with his wife, Clara, and his assistant, Otto. As his passion in science intertwines with nationalistic pride, Haber manifested himself a scientist devoted to a country that never accepted his Jewish origin.

No late seating. Recommended for ages 18+ due to intellectual content. Performance lasts 90 minutes with a 15-minute intermission.

The Lion in Winter
4/15 - 5/21
Considered a modern-day classic, The Lion in Winter is James Goldman’s 1966 play about sibling rivalries, distribution of wealth and power, and the elusive quality of love. The play ultimately examines the question of legacy: what do we leave behind? These powerful figures will do just about anything to ensure that they live on past their time on earth, even if it means destroying their own family. A triumph of wit and wordplay, The Lion in Winter is perhaps best known for its 1968 movie adaptation, featuring a larger-than-life Peter O’Toole as Henry II and a stunning Katharine Hepburn in an award-winning turn as Eleanor of Aquitaine
