After the Revolution - In Amy Herzog's After the Revolution, the brilliant, promising Emma Joseph proudly carries the torch of her family's Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her blacklisted grandfather. But when history reveals a shocking truth about the man himself, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty and allegiance they thought had been resolved.

Born of Conviction - Playwright Kathryn Dickinson draws on biographical material from her childhood in 1960s Mississippi, where her minister father took a stand against racism. After being barred from a community church and receiving threatening messages at his home, he was compelled to take his family and leave the state. The play weaves modern day and flashback scenes fluidly as Kelly, the central character, struggles to come to grips with the traumatic events of her early childhood.

In the Wake - It's Thanksgiving of 2000 and the presidential election still has not been decided. Ellen insists that her friends and family don't understand how bad the situation really is. But no one -- not her loving partner Danny, nor the passionate Amy, nor the brutally pragmatic and world-weary Judy -- can make Ellen see the blind spot at the center of her own politics and emotional life. A funny, passionate and ultimately searing new play, In the Wake illuminates assumptions that lie at the heart of the American character -- and the blind spots that mask us from ourselves.

Passage Through Light and Shadows: The Children of Ararat - A dramatic evocation of the ancient and rich culture of the Armenian nation through its dance, music, poetry, art, architecture, religion and folklore.

Pinocchio: The Italian Musical - Compagnia della Rancia in collaboration with Queens-based Incanto Productions LLC and The presents the American debut of Pinocchio: The Italian Musical, to be performed in Italian with English subtitles. Based on the most popular Italian fairytale The Adventures of Pinocchio, written in 1881 by Carlo Collodi, this modern musical adaptation features a diverse genre of music, including rock ballads, operetta, canzone, hip-hop and Latin -- and is ideal for children and adults of all ages.

Play Dead - Teller (of Penn & Teller) and Todd Robbins invite Death out to play in a new spirit-shaking show that explores themes of death, darkness and deception. As the guide for the evening, Todd Robbins draws audiences into an unknown haunted world full of frightful surprises and diabolical laughter. Although very much a theatrical work, it is hardly a typical "play," but rather a dramatic, unnerving thriller -- here and now in an "abandoned" theater, illuminated by a single ghost light -- in which audiences test their nerves and face their fears as they are surrounded by ethereal sights, sounds and even touches of the returning dead, all achieved by wry, suspenseful storytelling and uncanny stage illusions.

St. Nicholas - When a jaded and cynical Dublin Drama critic comes under the spell of a beautiful young actress and pursues her into a coven of vampires in modern day London, storytelling at its spooky best comes to vivid life. Is it all a drunken lie? A tantalizing fairy tale? Or is it his own version of a higher truth?
