Theater: Broadway Plays

Angel Reapers
Featuring the traitional Shaker songs and a stunning mix of modern dance and actual Shaker movements, Angel Reapers captures the soul of the Shakers, an early American religious sect, which sought to connect with God through exstatic ritual and strict celibacy.

(For more information about Angel Reapers, click here.)

Arthur Miller's The Crucible
Arthur Miller's The Crucible returns to Broadway in a new production directed by the acclaimed Belgian director Ivo van Hove.

Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate.

Based on the 1782 novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, Les Liaisons Dangereuses follows former lovers, La Marquise de Merteuil and Le Viconte de Vicomte de Valmont as they compete in games of seduction and revenge.

His target is the peerlessly virtuous and happily married Madame de Tourvel.

(For more information about Les Liasons Dangereuses, click here.)

Oh, Hello on Broadway
Gili Faizon and George St. Geeland are outrageously opinionated, 70-something, native New Yorkers that Nick Kroll and John Mulaney first began performing on the alternative comedy stages in NYC. Honed for over a decade, the fictional duo garnered a cult following and found their way onto a Comedy Central special, viral videos and late night couches everywhere. Oh Hello, on Broadway is Gil and George's "memoir for the stage"--a laugh-a-minute two-man tour-de-force that's part scripted, part scripted, part spontaneous comedy, and totally unprecedented.

(For more information about Oh, Hello on Broadway, click here.)

Oslo
Oslo tells the true--albeit little known--story of Norweigian diplomat Mona Juul and her husband, Terje Rod-Larsen, who together coordinated top-secret peace negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberations Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat in the early 1990s. Their efforts culminated in the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993.

(For more information about Photograph 51, click here.)
