Welcome to Season 35

Season 35 is a celebration of being yourself on your own terms. Every play has at its center someone looking to be their true selves, whether by rebelling against the establishment, going on a spiritual quest, crusading for justice or looking for a safe place to call home. 

Each production packs a different kind of punch. From contemporary plays to newly imagined classics, you’ll be in for something new every time you step through our doors. When you subscribe to Season 35, you’ll get the thrill of taking a joyride through a season runs the gamut from hilarious satire to powerful catharsis – and just about everything in between.

It’s not simply a feel-good season. Its’ a feel-everything season.
