Proof

Catherine mourns her father Robert, a mathematician who struggled with his genius and mental illness. Haunted with fears that she will follow her father's tortured path, Catherine struggles to maintain control. Then Catherine encounters romance and mystery with Robert's former graduate student, Hal. Is the paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert's office authentic? Her journey is a confrontation of the past, present and future. What will it take for Catherine to heal and move forward? Proof won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.

Please be advised the Proof contains adult language and situations.

Into the Woods

Imagine a post-modern Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Cinderella. In this brilliant reimagining of Grimm's Fairy tales witches conjure curses with a groovy rap, Prince Charming's eye roves, and great giants stalk the earth. These story book characters will captivate your imagination in this intimate production of one of the most beloved musicals of the American Theatre. Find out what happens after "happily ever after!"

Probably

Probably is a new and brilliant play by a 2014 graduate of Amherst College. This powerful work grapples with the national trauma of sexual assault and engages audiences to think critically about the topic. How will the students in one college community respond to the events of one night? Probably invites thoughtful examination on the nature of truth, denial, and civility.

Please be advised that Probably contains adult language and situations and is recommended for mature audiences only.

American Idiot

Book and lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong
Book by Michael Mayer
Music and lyrics by Green Day

American Idiot hurls us into the whirlwind of young America, animated by Green Day's astonishing music. Meet Johnny, Tunny, and Will as they struggle to make meaning of a chaotic post-9/11 world. Follow these young men as they take diverse paths-- bursting from their hometown for the freedom of the city. Instead, they encounter love, family, duty, and dangerous companions. It's a rocky ride toward the unexpected. This raw-boned anthem features all the songs from Green Day's album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from the band's follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.

Please be advised that American Idiot contains adult language and situations and is recommended for mature audiences only.

Reservations begin Thursday, March 31
