Miss You like Hell - The Public Theater
Through May 06, 2018 - New York

ony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes (Water by the Spoonful, In the Heights) and acclaimed, genre-breaking singer/songwriter Erin McKeown bring their highly anticipated new musical to The Public this season. Two-time Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega (Anna in the Tropics, Daphne's Dive) is Beatriz, flawed mom to 16 year-old Olivia, and an undocumented immigrant on the verge of deportation. After living estranged from each other for years, a mother and daughter embark on a road trip that crosses state lines. Together they meet Americans of different backgrounds, shared dreams, and complicated truths in this powerful new show with vast heart and fierce humor. OBIE-winning director Lear deBessonet (Resident Director/ Founder of Public Works) and choreographer Danny Mefford (Dear Evan Hansen, Fun Home) stage this transcendent new production with music that will find your soul, and stay with you forever.

Mlima's Tale - The Public Theater
Through May 20, 2018 - New York

This season, two time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage returns to the Public with a new drama as moving and incisive as her Broadway debut play Sweat, heralded by The New York Times as a "vital contribution to contemporary drama." Taking us on a journey that starts in a game park in Kenya and goes around the world, MLIMA'S TALE is the story of Mlima, a magnificent elephant trapped in the clandestine international ivory market. Following a trail of greed and desire as old as trade itself, Mlima leads us through memory and fear, history and tradition, and want and need. Obie Award winner Jo Bonney (Father Comes Home from the Wars) directs this poignant new play that reveals the surprising and complicated deals that connect us all.
