The Comedy of Errors

The Comedy of Errors

October 8 – 23, 2022

by William Shakespeare

Set in the Greek city of Ephesus, The Comedy of Errors concerns the misadventures of two sets of identical twins who were accidentally separated at birth in a shipwreck. One of Shakespeare’s early plays, it is one of his most farcical comedies, featuring mistaken identity, slapstick humor, puns, and word play.
 

Peter and the Starcatcher

Peter and the Starcatcher

December 1 – 18, 2022

a play by Rick Elice
music by Wayne Barker
based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

This Tony-winning imaginative and musical play, based on the best-selling novels, upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair… and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
 

Black Box New Play Festival

Black Box New Play Festival

January 19 – February 5, 2023

Gallery has a history of supporting emerging playwrights, fostering play development, and producing world premieres. Our playwright-focused festival, returning to the stage this season, aims to polish a collection of short new plays and create an exciting presentation of theater over the three-week run.
 

Assassins

Assassins

May 11 – 28, 2023

book by John Weidman
music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.

Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, this multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written. Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical “revusical” that explores the dark side of the American experience.
