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

Romeo and Juliet
It’s a story so well-known it scarcely needs an introduction, yet surprisingly the Guthrie has produced it just twice before. Set in Verona, where the rival houses of Capulet and Montague have had a long-standing feud, “Romeo and Juliet” is Shakespeare’s famous tragedy of star-crossed lovers, filled with all the passion of young love. Underscored by ingenious wit and astonishing beauty, the play pits the bitterness of resentment against the intensity of romance.

≈[ALMOST EQUAL TO]
Jonas Hassen Khemiri is one of Sweden’s best-known contemporary writers, and his outrageously dark political comedy “≈ [Almost Equal To]” premiered to sold-out audiences at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. In the play, everyone is overrun by numbers, begging, earning, scheming and stealing as they collide with the economy surrounding them. Politically subversive, this play is a sharp exploration of money in modern life.
