In this Tony Award®-winning Best Play, playwright Richard Greenberg celebrates the personal and professional intricacies of America’s favorite pastime. When Darren Lemming, the star center fielder for the Empires, comes out of the closet, the reception off the field reveals a barrage of long-held unspoken prejudices. Facing some hostile teammates and fraught friendships, Darren is forced to contend with the challenges of being a gay person of color within the confines of a classic American institution. As the Empires struggle to rally toward a championship season, the players and their fans begin to question tradition, their loyalties, and the price of victory.

The president is coming to town, and the good ladies of Bethlehem, PA are beside themselves planning to give him a hero’s welcome; later, their husbands drink and posture during his swearing in. And in Brooklyn, a group of 20-something white women gather to plan . . . a revolution? Or is it a ritual to absolve their own guilt? 53% Of shines a spotlight on the status quo and shakes up our perceived notions of who calls themselves good and who pleads ignorance.

PATIENCE

BY

JOHNNY G. LLOYD

DIRECTED BY

ZHAILON LEVINGSTON

Daniel plays solitaire. Professionally. He’s very good – some would say the best.  But he is ready to retire and settle into that perfect new house with his husband-to-be, Jordan.  He’s just got to hold it together through one final, career-defining match.  A sports-inspired fantasia, Patience is a meditation on black excellence, next chapters, and playing a very long game alone.

“PATIENCE is special to me because it's my take on the coming of age story - one where becoming is equally about questioning as it is about growing. I hope it's both the kind of quiet where you can hear yourself think and the kind of funny where you see yourself in the joke. When writing PATIENCE, I was inspired by the space between life’s chapters, by Venus Williams, by the oppression of competition – and by the magic of playing a card game against yourself.”
– Johnny G. Lloyd

BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY

BY

STEPHEN ADLY GUIRGIS

DIRECTED BY

AUSTIN PENDLETON

City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed — and the Church won’t leave him alone. For ex-cop and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington and his recently paroled son Junior, the struggle to hold on to one of the last great rent stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum in this Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy from Stephen Adly Guirgis. For Pops and Junior, it seems the old days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living Between Riverside and Crazy. “It’s a dizzying and exciting place to be!” hails The New York Times.

Based on the novel by New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult and her daughter Samantha Van Leer, Between the Lines is an empowering and enchanting new musical for anyone who has ever sought to find their place in the world. An outsider in a new town and a new school, Delilah seeks comfort in the pages of her favorite book, where she feels heard and understood. But as the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur in both extraordinary and astonishing ways, Delilah has to confront whether she alone has the power to rewrite her own story.
