BE HERE NOW by Deborah Zoe Laufer
Jan 10th-Feb 2nd, 2020
Surrounded by painfully cheerful co-workers, Bari is deeply cynical and woefully underemployed working at a small-town fulfillment center. After an unexpected and unexplainable turn of events, Bari finds herself on an enlightening new path. When she meets Mike, a man who makes art out of garbage, it’s Bari’s turn to pull another out of the darkness. Be Here Now asks what we are willing to do for love and happiness and to create meaning in our lives.
THE SYNC OFF: LOVE SYNCS, the Valentine's Day edition
Fundraiser *At the Athenaeum
February 13th, 2020
Back by popular demand, hysterically funny Summit fundraiser "The Sync Off" spoofs Reality TV singing competitions such as American Idol, The Voice, and The Sing off. The "competition" features local actors as host, contestants, and celebrity judges of a cutthroat lip-sync competition. The evening includes a silent auction, locally catered fare, and a cash bar in the historic Basile Theatre at the Athenaeum.
CRIMES OF THE HEART by Beth Henley
April 7th and 8th, 2020
Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, the play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. "While this play overflows with infectious high spirits, it is also, unmistakably, the tale of a very troubled family. Such is Miss Henley's prodigious talent that she can serve us pain as though it were a piece of cake." —NY Times.
DETROIT ’67 by Dominique Morisseau
June 19th-July 12th, 2020
PRODUCED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH PHOENIX THEATRE
In 1967 Detroit, Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the '67 riots.
