Love! Valour! Compassion!
7/16 – 8/30, Mon – Thu
Terrence McNally’s Love! Valour! Compassion! is the story of friendship, loyalty, lust and love between an intergenerational group of gay men who gather over the course of one summer. NOTE: The production is for mature audiences only. It includes adult situations, frank language, and full-frontal nudity.
The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart
What: “The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart” tells the fascinating story of the woman who changed the way we live our lives by daring us to try harder. From her humble beginnings in Nutley, New Jersey to her empire-building years in Westport, Connecticut, to her highly-publicized stint in federal prison, this is a chronicle of epically blind ambition set to the music of artists as varied as Beyonce, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adele and Metallica.
Midnight at The Never Get
What: Midnight at The Never Get imagines two men who never existed at a time that very much did. Trevor Copeland and Arthur Brightman have the perfect New York romance – but it’s 1965 and against the law. So in the back room of The Never Get, an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar, they put together a show called Midnight, a queer nightclub act where Arthur writes love songs for Trevor to sing to a man. By the late 60’s, tensions in the Village reach a breaking point, and the lovers find themselves caught in a relationship they can’t control and a movement they don’t understand.
