If you are a 2022 or 2023 subscriber, you already have tickets to Hippest Trip – The Soul Train Musical. The wait is finally over! Get ready for “the hippest trip in America” with the world premiere of Hippest Trip – The Soul Train Musical, the Broadway-bound musical based on the iconic TV show that brought Black music, dance, and style into every living room in America. Journey back to 1971’s Chicago, when Black entrepreneur and radio DJ Don Cornelius transformed the pop culture landscape by recognizing the lack of Black musical artists on television. Within a year, his local dance show went national and became one of the longest-running shows in television history. Elegant, determined, and complicated, Cornelius set trends for nearly 40 years by giving a stage—and a camera—to the artists who created the soundtrack of multiple generations, and to the dancers, including Rosie Perez and Jody Watley, who became superstars. The acclaimed creative team of Hippest Trip includes Tony Award–nominated playwright and MacArthur Genius Dominique Morisseau (Broadway’s Ain’t Too Proud; The Detroit Project), Tony Award–nominated choreographer Camille A. Brown (A.C.T.’s Toni Stone; Broadway’s Once on This Island), and the Apollo Theater’s acclaimed executive director Kamilah Forbes. Don’t miss this world-premiere musical event that will have you dancing in the aisles and leave you with “love, peace, and soul” in your heart.
By Liz Duffy Adams Directed by Josh Costello Intimate. Ingenious. Intoxicating. Will Shakespeare is an upstart crow looking to make his name. Kit Marlowe is the greatest poet of the age and knows it. He's also a spy for the English crown. In the back room of a tavern, against the backdrop of a polarized and paranoid England where even the slightest misstep can lead to a death sentence, the two writers embark on a risky collaboration. Artistic partnership becomes a dangerous dance of inspiration, artistry, seduction, and possible betrayal. Experience the thrill of creative expression and the precariousness of living in a society where every move is scrutinized. “Glorious… [a] jewel of a script!” -Houston Chronicle
What makes a family? In Wolf Play, we meet a young boy who feels more connection to wolves than people: “Wolves suck at being alone. Wolves need family.” The play incorporates humor, puppetry, and sharply written dialogue in this tale of people grappling with questions of identity, trust, and parenthood. “There’s an unruly quality to Jung’s idea of what theater can be... It’s thrilling to see that potential unleashed on the vagaries of love...” – New York Times
From the critically acclaimed playwright of Admissions, Joshua Harmon, comes an affecting and hilarious play about finding and lacking love.

Lauded as “the funniest farce ever written” by The New York Post and originally nominated for Best Play at the 1984 Tony Awards®, Noises Off by Michael Frayn presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. Tickets are currently SOLD OUT. Additional performances may be announced at a future date. Please visit our event page for updates. Be prepared for Noises Off like you’ve never seen or experienced it before as we use our intimate space in unprecedented and innovative ways! Due to the sometimes immersive nature of this production, LIMITED SEATING is available and late seating will not be accommodated until intermission. Synopsis Six neurotic actors, two overworked stage managers, an explosive director and an elusive plate of sardines are the perfect recipe for on and offstage disaster and hilarity in Michael Frayn’s classic farce Noises Off. Director Lloyd Dallas and his cast of the sex-fueled screwball comedy Nothing On have a lot on their plate: a prop of sardines nobody knows what to do with, memorizing lines, missed cues, quick costume changes, door slamming - not to mention rampant offstage gossip, affairs, rivalries and secrets that lead to mounting mainstage mayhem. Can they get their act together before the final curtain call? Don’t count on it. Rating PG-13 for language, sexuality and partial nudity. Runtime 2 hours and 15 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.
