CRITICS' PICK! “A stitch-in-your-side funny new comedy!” – The New York Times
After years of struggling at a small-time club in the Florida Panhandle, Casey realizes it’s now or never for his career as an Elvis impersonator. Enter Miss Tracy Mills, a self-proclaimed grand dame of drag who guarantees Casey’s life is about to get “all shook up.” Matthew Lopez’s hip-shakin’, heartwarming tale explores what happens when one man trades in his blue suede shoes for platform pumps and discovers he ain’t nothing but a drag queen.

Co-World Premiere with Williamstown Theatre Festival
“Every single thing leads to everything else…” Amber and Tom, finding their way as freshmen at Princeton, spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy, and if unspoken, can it be called consent? A playwright The New York Times calls “newly (and justly) hot,” Anna Ziegler investigates gender and race politics, our crippling desire to fit in and the three sides to every story.

Directed by Pierre Balloón
Produced by Jerry Seinfeld
Ted L. Nancy is a customer in need of service. He writes to the City of Huntington Beach requesting a permit for operating his Electronic Nose Blowing Machine, invites Czechoslovakian President Václav Havel to become Treasurer of Ted’s Vacuum Club, asks Nordstrom about buying a mannequin that looks like his deceased neighbor to present to the grieving widow, and more. Time after time, well-meaning representatives offer earnest replies to his letters. Based on his bestselling series of books Letters from a Nut, Mr. Nancy brings his madcap collection of correspondence to the Geffen stage for a one-of-a-kind show that is both outlandish and uproarious.
