August Wilson’s Two Trains Running

Directed by Gilbert McCauley

January 23 – February 16, 2025 

Set against the economic turbulence of Pittsburgh’s Hill District in 1969, diner-owner Memphis Lee finds himself at a juncture: maintain his much-beloved neighborhood spot or sell it – changing the lives of its big-hearted regulars. With the finely tuned rhythms and complex characters that define the August Wilson canon, Two Trains Running explores the beauty in resilience.


 

A comedy in English.  

Laughs in Spanish

By Alexis Scheer
Directed by Lisa Portes

March 6 – March 30, 2025 

Ay, dios mío! It’s the eve of Art Basel in Miami and gallery director Mari is freaking out. The art has vanished, the phones are ringing off the hook, and her assistant Caro is acting suspicious. When things are looking truly terrible, her once-famous, often-absent mother Estella arrives in town… baggage in tow. Stylish and hilarious, Laughs in Spanish is a vibrant collage of chaos, cultura, and connection.


 

A love that cannot be held back.

Romeo & Juliet

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Melia Bensussen

April 17 – May 18, 2025 

An intoxicating blend of tragedy and hope, the spark of young love is ignited in Romeo and Juliet. But as quickly as this romance begins, it spirals out of control amidst the chaos of rivalry, familial duty, death, and impossible choices. Artistic Director Melia Bensussen brings this Shakespeare classic to life, in a romantic production rife with desire (and sword fighting!).

Hurricane Diane

By Madeleine George
