SOFT POWER - Saturday, November 2 @ 2pm
New York Premiere Book & Lyrics by David Henry Hwang,  Music & Additional Lyrics by Jeanine Tesori
One of the most exciting theatrical collaborations in recent memory, SOFT POWER is an exploration of America's current place in the world, told through an East-West musical from China's point of view, in which a theater producer from Shanghai forges a powerful bond with Hillary Clinton. SOFT POWER is a fever dream of modern American politics amidst global conversations, asking us all – why do we love democracy? And should we?

FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE/WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENUF - Saturday, November 9 @ 2pm
Written by Ntozake Shange
Filled with passion, humor, and raw honesty, legendary playwright/poet Ntozake Shange’s form-changing choreopoem tells the story of seven women of color using poetry, song, and movement. With unflinching honesty and emotion, each woman voices her survival story of getting by in a world shaped by sexism and racism.  The Cast includes Deaf Actress Alexandria Wailes
ADDITIONAL INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES ARE PLANNED.

THE MICHAELS - Sunday, November 17 @ 1:30pm
World Premiere.  Written and Directed by Richard Nelson
Commissioned by The Public Theater
Dinner is cooked, modern dances are rehearsed, and the meal is eaten — all amidst conversations about art, death, family, dance, politics, the state of America, and how the world sees our country... and a host of everyday questions that make up the richness of ordinary life.

BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY - Sunday, December 8 @ 1:00pm
Major New York Revival. Written by Tony Kushner & Directed by Oskar Eustis
Agnes, an actress in Weimar Germany, and her cadre of passionate, progressive friends, are torn between protest, escape, and survival as the world they knew crumbles around them. Her story is interrupted by an American woman enraged by the cruelty of the Reagan administration, and a new character, grappling with the anxiety, distraction, hope, and hopelessness of an artist facing the once unthinkable rise of authoritarianism in modern America
