Synopsis

Three-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad (A Doll’s House, Part 2) will star as one of history’s greatest heroines in a major new production of Bernard Shaw‘s epic work directed by Daniel Sullivan (Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes). Set in 15th century France, Saint Joan follows a country girl whose mysterious visions propel her into elite circles. When the nation’s rulers become threatened by her popularity and influence, they unite to bring her down and she finds herself on trial for her life. This timeless and powerful play dramatizes the limits of an individual in a society dominated by overwhelming political and religious forces.

Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club.

The Nap

Previews Begin: Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Opening Night: Thursday, September 27, 2018

Synopsis

By the author of the rollicking, award-winning Broadway comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, The Nap is a very funny look at the world of snooker – the British version of pool. Dylan Spokes, a fast-rising young star arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan’s forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad, saucy mum, quick-tongued manager and a renowned gangster, to boot. It’s a fast-paced comedy thriller where, in an exciting twist, the tournament unfolds live on stage. In its British premiere, The Guardian raved, “Ingenious,” The Observer cheered, “Outrageously funny,” and The Daily Mail called The Nap “brilliant and terrifically inventive.” Directing is Tony Award® winner Daniel Sullivan.

Choir Boy

Previews Begin: Thursday, December 27, 2018

Opening Night: Tuesday, January 22, 2019

Synopsis

For half a century, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men. One talented student has been waiting for years to take his rightful place as the leader of the legendary gospel choir. But can he make his way through the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key? On its US debut at MTC’s Studio Stage II, The New York Times called the play “vivid, magnetic and moving,” and The New York Post hailed it as “bracing and provocative.” Now, we’re thrilled to bring this soaring music-filled work to Broadway. Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an Oscar®-winning screenwriter of Moonlight and a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship Grant. Directing is Trip Cullman (Murder Ballad).

Choir Boy was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club with support from Time Warner Inc.

Synopsis

The Tony Award-winning author, performer and activist Eve Ensler, whose The Vagina Monologues is an international sensation, comes to MTC with a powerful new play based on her critically acclaimed memoir. While working with women suffering from the ravages of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ensler was stunned by a life-threatening diagnosis.  Told with her signature brand of humor, Ensler’s personal journey uncovers surprising connections between her body and the earth and how illness can be both transformative and transcendent. Directing this bold, unflinching and inspiring piece is Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin).

Following select performances of In the Body of the World, audience members are invited to attend ‘Beyond the Stage’, a series of curated post-show discussions led by a group of artists, medical professionals, scholars and activists in support of the play. The discussions are free of charge and are open to anyone attending that performance.

Dan Cody's Yacht

Previews Begin: Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Opening Night: Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Synopsis

In a small Boston suburb, a single schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter’s life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up the question: what truly separates the haves and the have nots? Is it wrong to seize an incredible chance, even if the circumstances seem questionable? Loosely inspired by a passage from “The Great Gatsby”, this timely new play by the author of The City of Conversation probes the troubling relationship of finance to educational opportunity in American life today. Directing is Tony winner Doug Hughes (The Father and Doubt at MTC).

Support for Dan Cody’s Yacht is provided by the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. Dan Cody’s Yacht is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. Dan Cody’s Yacht was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club.

Synopsis

In a small Wisconsin town, a tight-knit Punjabi community gathers to celebrate the wedding of a traditional family’s only son, just as their strong-willed daughter announces her plans to move away and open a bar. As they come together for feasts filled with singing and dancing, one generation’s cherished customs clash with another’s modern-day aspirations, and ghosts and pirates from the family’s past linger in everyone’s thoughts – until one sudden event changes everything. This poignant and smartly funny new play about legacy, life and longing comes from the fresh voice of Jaclyn Backhaus, who again teams up with her Men on Boats director, Will Davis.
