LILLIAN HELLMAN'S THE LITTLE FOXES

OC Performance
Open Captioned Performance
Saturday, April 29, 2017, 2:00 p.m.

Samuel J. Friedman Theatre 261 West 47th Street, NYC
OFFER  SOLD OUT

Two extraordinary actresses return to Manhattan Theatre Club in a vibrant new production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes. In a thrilling coup, MTC will present three-time Tony Award® nominee Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon(Rabbit Hole, Wit), who will alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie in Lillian Hellman’s legendary play about greed and ambition. Set in Alabama in 1900, The Little Foxes follows Regina Giddens and her ruthless clan, including her sister-in-law Birdie, as they clash in often brutal ways in an effort to strike the deal of their lives. Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era, the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) will direct.

Music Box 239 West 45th Street, NYC
OFFER SOLD OUT

A tribute to the outsider in us all, Dear Evan Hansen is about someone you know, maybe even someone you are, but more than anything, it's about discovering the person we all long to be - ourselves.

All his life, Evan Hansen has felt invisible; to his peers, to the girl he loves, sometimes even to his own mother. But that was before he wrote the letter - that led to the incident- that started the lie - that ignited a movement - that inspired a community - and changed Evan's status from the ultimate outsider into the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to be somebody else.

But how long can Evan keep his secret? And at what price?

Winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for BEST NEW COMEDY, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is a celebration of the best of live theater… and the worst. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a Broadway show – a ramshackle set, a leading lady with a concussion, and a corpse that can't play dead.

Direct from a bafflingly successful run on London’s West End, this “gut-busting hit” (The New York Times) will move you… from your house to the theater and back. If you thought One Man, Two Guvnors was the finest British comedy to ever cross the pond, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG will prove you right. Don’t miss this strictly limited (though likely too long) engagement!

Teaming up with the beautiful young war widow Julia as their singer, they struggle to confront the lingering effects and secrets of the battlefield that threaten to tear them apart.

Playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they risk everything in the final live broadcast to redefine the meaning of victory. With an explosive original score and choreography inspired by the high energy swing rhythms of the era, Bandstand is a truly American story of love, loss, triumph and the everyday men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.
