    Ken Ludwig's Dear Jack, Dear Louise

    For our first production of our long-anticipated re-opening, Playwright, master of comedy and award-winner Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Fox on the Fairway) brings us a romantic comedy — a love story set during WWII about a young soldier courting his sweetheart — a young actress on Broadway. What starts with long distance letter writing ends in a “sweep you off your feet” meeting in Times Square. This funny, touching, patriotic and uplifting story, based on the playwright’s parents, is just the “Welcome Home to George Street Playhouse” that we all need! Come fall in love with live theatre all over again. Learn More

    It's Only a Play

    Tony Winner and longtime friend Terrence McNally left us this past year, and what better way to celebrate his life than with his hysterical comedy set at a Broadway Opening Night Party! (Remember those?!) We cordially invite you to join the festivities with this valentine to the theatre that The New York Times called “a hilarious gold-mining hit.” This production, directed by Kevin Cahoon and Colin Hanlon (The Nerd), features a cast of award-winning Broadway farceurs who have to be seen in person to be believed! We wanted to celebrate your return to George Street Playhouse’s big stage in the Johnson Theatre with a laugh-filled night to forget your troubles with guffaws! Learn More

  • Her Portmanteau

    Associate Artist Laiona Michelle (Little Girl Blue, American Hero) helms this fascinating new play about Nigerian American immigrants, and opens our eyes to the Nigerian culture, especially as it becomes assimilated in America. Reminiscent of an Arthur Miller family drama, Ms. Udofia’s moving work, which The New York Times called “extraordinary,” touches on universal themes of mother-daughter relationships, forgiveness, reconciliation, and the struggle associated with leaving our countries of origin behind, while still holding on to the rich cultural heritage. We are proud to be producing Ms. Udofia’s work directed by Ms. Michelle. Learn More

  • Baipás

    We are honored to welcome the extremely talented, award-winning Director/ Choreographer Julio Monge who brings us the American English language premiere of the iconic Puerto Rican Academy Award nominee Jacobo Morales. “Baipás” (a byway detour from the main road) presents a magical world in which two very diverse, strong individuals are thrown into a strange place together and using the legendary sensuous Bolero, come to choose life and love. As this man and woman dance through the byways of love between clarity and confusion with a healthy dose of sarcastic humor, they arrive in an unexpected place. A romantic pas de deux! Learn More

    A Walk on the Moon

    The George Street Playhouse is excited to present the east coast premiere of A Walk on the Moon, a musical based on the film of the same name. Welcome to the iconic summer of 1969 when man walked on the moon, women fought for equal rights, the War in Vietnam raged on, and Woodstock showed America what the new generation stood for. At a Jewish bungalow colony in the Catskills, a young wife and mother, Pearl Kantrowitz, has an affair with the handsome Blouseman. While the affair jeopardizes her marriage and creates pain and turmoil, Pearl is forced to undertake a journey of self-discovery. A Walk on the Moon is co-produced with Ruth and Stephen Hendel in association with Roy Gabay. Director Sheryl Kaller has assembled an outstanding creative team and cast. Take a ride with us to the moon and back. Learn More
