CHESS

Book by Richard Nelson

Lyrics by Tim Rice

Music by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson

The collaborators on Chess are giants of rock music and rock musicals and they have created a complex rock opera that played to full Broadway houses and standing ovations. Here the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super power politics and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American but falls for the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes "One Night in Bangkok" and "Heaven Help My Heart".

"One of the best rock scores ever produced. This is an angry, difficult, demanding and rewarding show."- Time

COMING IN MAY!

NEXT TO NORMAL

Music by Tom Kitt

Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

Nominated for nine Tony Awards in 2009

Pulitzer-Prize Winner for Drama: 2010

Next to Normal is one of the most powerful stage experiences to hit Broadway in recent years becoming the most talked about new show across the country. This brave and breathtaking musical is the acclaimed, groundbreaking show “that pushed Broadway in new directions” (says Rolling Stone).

This electrifying and powerful rock musical tells the intense and poignant story of a mother, Diana, who wakes up just like any other day with her husband, her 16 year-old daughter and soon-to-be 18 year old son. The musical follows the humor and pathos of this suburban family dealing with mental illness, as Diana embarks on yet another round of treatment for bipolar disorder and the family secrets emerge forcing us to question the always ideal definition of normal. A theatrical experience like no other that will pin you to your seat as you immerse in this emotional powerhouse that changed musical theatre forever with this thrilling contemporary rock score.

“Much more than a feel-good musical: A feel-everything musical” – New York Times

NEXT STAGED READING!

THE GOOD BODY

By Eve Ensler

Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, turns her unique eye to the rest of the female form in The Good Body. Whether undergoing botox injections or living beneath burqas, women of all cultures and backgrounds feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in. The Good Body merges cross-cultural explorations with Eve's own personal journey coming to terms with her "less-than-flat, post-forties stomach.

"Ms. Ensler wants to soften the ever-fraught relationship between American women and their bodies, to expose the destructive formulas that lead them to assuage their insecurities by punishing their flesh…rich in pointed, amusing details…forthrightly funny…bristling with wisecracks [and] exotically harvested snippets of wisdom.” —New York Times

"Passionate, funny, frank, revealing, even shocking, and genuinely committed to improving life on this planet." — San Francisco Chronicle

This project was made possible with funding by the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County in our City of Arts and Innovation.
