The Revolutionists

September 2-25, 2022

  • Written by Lauren Gunderson

  • Directed by Melissa Livingston

  • Scenic Design: Leah Mazur

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection… that ends in a song and a scaffold.

Cabaret

November 9-13, 2022

  • Book by Joe Masteroff

  • Music by John Kander

  • Lyrics by Fred Ebb

  • Directed by J. Austin Ayer

  • Scenic Design: Leah Mazur

  • Lighting Design: Jared Land

  • Costume Design: Laurie Land

Cabaret takes place from 1929-1930, a time when Berlin, in the midst of a post-World War I economic depression, is transitioning from a center of underground, avant-garde cultural epicenter to the beginnings of Hitler’s totalitarian regime and the rise of the Nazi Party.

With a distinctly Brechtian dose of provocation and a score featuring songs that have become classics of the American Musical Theater, Cabaret is a fierce, meaty musical that pushes the boundaries of the form and literally holds “the mirror up to nature.”
