Staged Reading | Heroes of the Fourth Turning: Pulitzer Prize Finalist Play with Broadway Actors (live-streamed, virtual)


It's nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party. They've returned home to toast their mentor Gina, newly inducted as president of a tiny Catholic college. But as their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, it becomes less a celebration than a vicious fight to be understood. On a chilly night in the middle of America, Will Arbery's haunting play offers grace and disarming clarity, speaking to the heart of a country at war with itself. Winner of 2020 Obie Awards for Creative Ensemble + Playwriting; Three Lucille Lortel Awards; New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play; New York Times "Best Theater of 2019" Written by Will Arbery Directed by Danya Taymor

Staged Reading | Skeleton Crew: One of The Top 10 Most Produced Plays in America (live-streamed, virtual)


In Dominique Morisseau's third and final play in her Detroit trilogy, a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city navigate the possibility of foreclosure. Power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival. When the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred, how far over the lines are they willing to step. "Morisseau has heart! Her rough-edge dialogue has a touch of street poet." - VARIETY Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson. The play had its critically-acclaimed world premiere with Atlantic Theater Company during 2015|2016 season.

Concert | Beethoven and Ravel: Modern Look at Classical Music (virtual)


Composer and pianist David Haney, and multi instrumentalist Dave Storrs present a revolutionary way to explore classical music. Most compositions are developed using some degree of improvisation. By playing (experimenting) with some of the great passages of music from Beethoven and Ravel, Haney and Storrs present a window into the rare hybrid world of composed and improvised music, in which both disciplines inspire each other.
