Good Person of Szechwan

Off Broadway Play - Drama — 

Can we practice goodness and create a world to sustain it?

 In Brecht’s comic and complex play, this question is raised by one of his most entertaining characters — Shen Tei the good-hearted, penniless, cross-dressing prostitute, who is forced to disguise herself as a savvy businessman named Sui Ta so she can master the ruthlessness needed to be a “good person” in a brutal world.

With Taylor Mac, “one of the most exciting theater artists of our times” (Time Out NY), as Shen Tei/Sui Ta and live music by “indie rock vaudevillians” (Spin magazine) César Alvarez & The Lisps, director Lear deBessonet brings this classic theatrical parable to life for the 21st century.

“Here is a show that must be seen, must, must, must!"
- The New York Times
