KINKY BOOTS
Open Captioned Performance:
Tuesday, May 6 at 7:00 PM


Al Hirschfeld Theatre

Tickets: $72.00 each, orchestra seating

From Grammy Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper and four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein comes the 2012 Tony Award Winning Best Musical Kinky Boots, directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, based on the 2005 film of the same name.

Charlie Price (Tony nominee Stark Sands) has suddenly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola (Tony Award Winner Billy Porter). A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man hes meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible and discovers that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

Featuring a new score and an uplifting story, Kinky Boots proves that sometimes, the best way to fit in is to stand out.

"INSPIRED! CYNDI LAUPER has created a score with audience-hugging charisma that performs like a pop star on Ecstasy. KINKY BOOTS is an emotional button-pusher about finding your passion, overcoming prejudice and transcending stereotypes. STARK SANDS is TERRIFIC!"

CASA VALENTINA
Open Captioned Performance:
Saturday, May 10 at 2:00 PM


Samuel J. Friedman Theatre

Tickets: $64.50 each, orchestra seating

Based on actual events, Casa Valentina is set in the 1960s and tells the tale of men who went to the Catskill Mountains to escape the summer heat, and something else entirely: being men. Nestled in the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy sat an inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men whose favorite pastime was dressing and acting as women. It was paradise for these men—white-collar professionals with families—to spend their weekends discreetly and safely inhabiting their chosen female alter egos. But when faced with the opportunity to become an official organization, these "self-made women" had to decide whether public recognition would help them gain a place in open society or spell their own personal disaster. Directed by Joe Mantello and written by Harvey Fierstein, the production stars Patrick Page (Dr. Seuss’…Grinch, The Lion King, Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark), John Cullum (Shenandoah, On the Twentieth Century) and Gabriel Ebert (Red, Matilda).

THE REALISTIC JONESES
Open Captioned Performance:
Wednesday, June 11 at 7:30 PM


Lyceum Theatre

Tickets: $69.50 each, orchestra seating

Academy Award nominee TONI COLLETTE (Muriel’s Wedding, Hostages), Golden Globe winner MICHAEL C. HALL (Dexter, Six Feet Under), Tony Award® winner TRACY LETTS (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Homeland) and Academy Award winner MARISA TOMEI (My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler) star in THE REALISTIC JONESES, the new play about love and life, friends and neighbors. This new Broadway play is by Pulitzer Prize finalist Will Eno and directed by Sam Gold (Fun Home, Seminar.)

THE REALISTIC JONES takes an outrageous, inside look at the people who live next door, the truths we think we know and the secrets we never imagined we all might share. Mr. Gold directed an earlier production of the play at the Yale Rep in 2012. "the tender, funny, terrific new play by Will Eno ... Mr. Eno’s voice, which teases out the poetry in the pedestrian and finds glinting humor in the static that infuses our faltering efforts to communicate, is as distinctive as any American playwright’s today...his off-kilter dialogue comes to seem as natural, and lovely, as the chirping of crickets and the sound of bird song....set in a small town in the countryside, where two couples who share the same last name find their lives slowly twining together in ways large and small."
- The New York Times

Running time: 90 minutes with no intermission

Infrared listening system available.
