February 22 – March 3
This enchanting new play, developed at New York’s renowned Public Theater and performed in Cuba, asks the question— is it more dangerous to follow our desires, or to bury them? Reiderico sneaks out of his house and spends his nights in the garden conspiring with a boy who lives at the bottom of a well, testing stormy waters between reality and the surreal.
Music by Arthur Sullivan Book and Lyrics by W.S. Gilbert
April 19 – 28
Prepare to set sail off the coast of Cornwall with the swashbuckling Pirates of Penzance! Frederic has earned his dues as the pirates’ apprentice waiting to be promoted to full pirate-dom on his 21st birthday, but upon discovery that he is a leap year baby born on February 29th, it seems he may never get the chance. This roaring comedy, one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous works, gets a fresh interpretation on the Ring stage.
