Grease!
Photo by Dan Norman
Need an escape from 2017? Then Grease is the Word! Harken back to the ’50s, rock ’n roll, high school days, raging hormones and fun times. Great songs, outfits and a whole lot of attitude. Truly a great night to be had by all.
Through October 28

The Bluest Eye
Set in 1940s Ohio, a coming-of-age story about Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl who wants nothing more than to be loved. Confronting turmoil at home, she prays for Shirley Temple’s blue eyes, believing their beauty is the only thing standing between her and the happiness of the white girls at school. By turns beautiful and harrowing, this heartrending adaptation explores the destructive power of racism and the strength of a community attempting to embrace an era of change.

Fly By Night
Set against the backdrop of 1965’s East Coast blackout, this musical is an ode to young love in a world filled with darkness. In a story both hilarious and bittersweet, a melancholy sandwich maker’s life is changed forever by two captivating sisters. With a score that will stay with you, “Fly By Night” reminds us that, “life is not the things we do … it’s who we’re doing them with.”

Pike St.
Nilaja Sun, the playwright/performer of the Obie Award-winning No Child (seen at PHT in 2010) comes to the House with her solo show for a limited three-week run. Sun’s virtuosic performance style brings to life a vibrant community of colorful characters on Manhattan’s Lower East Side as they come together to prepare for an impending hurricane. With a keen political eye and gentle humor, Sun’s rich portrayals of three generations of a Puerto Rican family, an octogenarian downstairs neighbor, and a host of friends brings Pike St. and the people within it to life.
