    After a successful run of The Trump Card last season, acclaimed monologist Mike Daisey is back to present his latest work, A People’s History. This new piece begins simply: Daisey finds a copy of the U.S. history textbook from his high school in rural Maine from over twenty five years ago. What follows is a kind of history lesson as only Daisey could teach, contrasting the history he grew up with and a very different book: Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. In this 18-part performance Daisey tells a history of America—from the first landing of Columbus to the election of Donald Trump—exposing and illuminating with his signature dark humor as he eviscerates the myths we have all helped make.

    An Enemy of the People
    based on the play by Henrik Ibsen
    by Kia Corthron
    directed by Lyndsey Turner

    A world premiere adaption of Henrik Ibsen’s play, An Enemy of the People follows Dr. Stockmann who aims to expose dangerous water pollution in a Norwegian spa town’s public baths. At first he’s seen as a hero, but gradually the whistleblower comes under fire for publicizing a problem that could destroy the town’s economy and reputation. With ripped-from-the-headlines relevance, this high-intensity drama reveals the dangers a single person may face in a quest for truth.

    Indecent
    by Paula Vogel
    conceived by Paula Vogel and Rebecca Taichman

    Inspired by the 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance – a play that follows a Jewish brothel owner and the lesbian romance between his 17-year-old daughter and a prostitute – Indecent charts the journey of a drama upheld as a groundbreaking piece of Jewish literature by some, and an act of obscenity by others. An ensemble of eight plays music as well as nearly 40 roles to shed light on one of the most fascinating scandals in theater history.

    For the first time in its history, the Guthrie will host Austin, TX-based theater collective Rude Mechs (aka Rude Mechanicals) in a development residency to present their latest original work Not Every Mountain, a beguiling meditation on change and permanence. Set against the backdrop of a soft-spoken rumination on life, relationships and ephemerality, performers use simple elements like string, cardboard and magnets to make giant mountains slowly rise, shift and grow. With some help from the audience, the mountains come alive, the seasons change and the moon makes its way across the sky.

    by Matthew Lopez

    As an Elvis impersonator at Cleo’s bar, Casey had everything going for him, including a new sequin jumpsuit. But just like that he loses his gig, rent is overdue, and his wife announces there’s a baby on the way. So when Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in, all hands are on deck for Casey’s transformation. He always knew he’d be a star – but not quite like this. With snappy zingers and show-stopping numbers, you won’t want to miss this wildly entertaining show.

Directed by award-winning actor/director James A. Williams, Under This Roof centers on Mamie and Raymond Warren, who live in the segregated black neighborhood of central Cleveland in the late 1940s. After Raymond suffers a serious accident, Mamie hires a white woman named Bessie, whose arrival brings new challenges. Under this Roof examines issues that resonate with today’s realities: race, gender, aging, power, family, disability and love, on an ever-shifting axis, with unexpected results that are comic, painful and healing.

    West Side Story
    based on a conception by Jerome Robbins
    book by Arthur Laurents
    music by Leonard Bernstein
    lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
    directed by Joseph Haj

    It's 1957 and two rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, are prowling the streets of Manhattan's West Side. When Tony falls for Maria, the sister of a rival gang member, a rumble is planned. Like Romeo and Juliet they're caught in an ages-long feud with no escape, even as they pledge their love for each other. Through the genius of Bernstein and Sondheim, incomparable hits like "Maria," "Tonight," "Cool" and "I Feel Pretty" are merged with the greatest love story ever told in this larger-than-life musical.
