The 2016-17 season starts off with the fascinating Mama’s Boy, which imagines what might have been happening in Lee Harvey Oswald’s home in the months leading up to that fateful November 1963 day in Dallas. Next is the heartwarming romantic musical based on a classic novel, Daddy Long Legs. American Son is a play certain to challenge assumptions and ignite conversations regarding the racial divide in this country. This premiere play earned Christopher Demos-Brown the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Award for a new play by an emerging playwright. We also have the outrageously funny comedy Bad Jews before the season closes with the new musical comedy, Curvy Widow, starring GSP favorite Nancy Opel.
