Channeling Kevin Spacey - Meet film buff Charlie, a meek pushover in a dead end job and a loveless relationship who shuffles through life like a Kevin Spacey character, breathlessly defeated. After a particularly soul-squashing day at work, Charlie has an epiphany and resolves to change his life by morphing into the real-life version of Al Pacino's most famous characters, resulting in a series of devastating and hilarious confrontations.

Future Anxiety - While set in the not-too-distant future, the planet's become uninhabitable. Fortunately, Karl has built a spaceship. In this fiercely intelligent and wildly conceivable vision of the apocalypse, a new generation tries to make sense of how to live on a planet with increasingly drained resources and suspect inhabitants.

Madagascar Live! - Based on the blockbuster DreamWorks film, this new stage extravaganza follows Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo, and those hilarious, plotting penguins from their home at New York's Central Park Zoo on an unexpected journey to Africa. Now these native New Yorkers have to figure out how to survive the wild and discover the true meaning of “It’s a jungle out there.”  Brought to life by imaginative sets and costumes, this action-packed adventure is filled with original songs that will have adults and kids alike dancing in the aisles.

Revolting Rhymes - Based on the Roald Dahl books “Revolting Rhymes,” “Dirty Beasts,” and “Rhyme Stew,” this musical composed and directed by Elizabeth Swados inventively stages the author's famous poems using puppets, costumes and original music, and takes audiences on a journey where everything familiar is rarely what it seems.

The School for Lies - This production of David Ives' The School for Lies -- a new comedy inspired by Molière's The Misanthrope – is directed by Tony winner Walter Bobbie and features a high-profile cast that includes Mamie Gummer, Hamish Linklater, Alison Fraser and Jenn Gambatese.

Triangle - Turn-of-the-century New York's political underworld and immigrant energy come to life in this new play focused on the tumultuous love affair between the legendary political boss "Big Tim" Sullivan, roguish and colorful "King of the Bowery," and the beautiful actress and reformer Margaret Holland. After years of an adulterous affair that produced a daughter, the notorious Tammany Hall power broker and the Seven Sisters' graduate find themselves inextricably bound by the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911.
