  • Black Super Hero Magic Mama

    Black Super Hero Magic Mama

    Written by Inda Craig-Galván
    Directed by Robert O'Hara

    When Sabrina's 14-year-old son dies in a police shooting, it prompts a flurry of media attention and calls for racial justice. Unable to play the expected role of grieving mother, Sabrina retreats into the fantasy world of superheroes and arch-villains that inhabit the comic book created by her son before his death. Both heartbreaking and highly imaginative, this stunning world premiere from Los Angeles-based playwright Inda Craig-Galván signals the arrival of an exciting and distinctive new voice in American theater.

  • The Niceties

    The Niceties

    Written by Eleanor Burgess
    Directed by Kimberly Senior
    Featuring Lisa Banes & Jordan Boatman

    In this “barnburner of a play” (The Washington Post), two extraordinary women square off in a high-stakes academic debate over race, reputation and who gets the final word on how American history is written. When university professor Janine and her brilliant student Zoe don’t see eye to eye, their routine office hours discussion unexpectedly careens off course—and threatens to derail their careers, lives and the status quo.

  • Invisible Tango

    Invisible Tango

    Created & Performed by Helder Guimarães
    Directed by Frank Marshall

    Magic sensation Helder Guimarães returns to the Geffen with the world premiere of his one-man show, Invisible Tango. Directed by legendary film producer and director Frank Marshall (Jurassic World, Indiana Jones, Goonies, Back to the Future), Invisible Tango explores the nature of secrets and how far we are willing to go to discover them. In the midst of the information age and our culture of over-sharing, Guimarães challenges our interaction with the unknown and explores how we can embrace the magic of wonder and mystery.

  • Mysterious Circumstances

    Mysterious Circumstances

    Written by Michael Mitnick
    Inspired by The New Yorker article "Mysterious Circumstances: The Strange Death of a Sherlock Holmes Fanatic" by David Grann
    Directed by Matt Shakman

    Based on a true story, Richard Lancelyn Green, the world's foremost scholar on Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is found dead in his London apartment.
