Join Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and Becky Thatcher in the greatest summer adventure ever told in this imaginative, highly theatrical adaptation of Mark Twain’s incomparable classic.  Featuring the thrill of mischief-making, the fickleness of first love, the cold shivers that linger after an adventure gone very wrong and the unbridled joy at discovering real buried treasure, this story is for anyone who has ever been a kid and celebrates all that is grand and glorious about childhood.

Spend some time at the Kit Kat Klub, the perfectly marvelous cabaret where singer Sally Bowles meets writer Cliff Bradshaw.  As the two pursue a life of pleasure in Weimer Berlin, the world outside the Klub begins to splinter.  Sally and Cliff are faced with a choice:  abandon themselves to pleasures promised by the cabaret, or open their eyes and face the coming storm.  Eight Tony Awards in 1968, including Best Musical, and four Tony Awards in 1998, including Best Revival.

CLYBOURNE PARK explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart.  Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family.  Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.  Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play.
