    A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
    by William Shakespeare
    directed by Joe Dowling & David Bolger

    In his inaugural season Guthrie Director Joe Dowling directed Shakespeare’s romantic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream with hilarious show-stopping scenes audiences rave about to this day. A decade later he reimagined the same play for a new generation of theatergoers, a visual feast featuring spectacular flying fairies and bold original music. To complete this remarkable trifecta in his final season, Joe and director/choreographer David Bolger (H.M.S. Pinafore, Swimming with My Mother) will direct the beloved play on our signature thrust, interpreting its four cleverly woven stories in a moonlit forest on a midsummer night like you’ve never seen before. Don’t miss this joyously immersive experience suitable for theatergoers 9 to 90.

    A STEADY RAIN
    by Keith Huff
    directed by Jeff Perry

    Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten, and after working together (for several years) as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family: Joey helps out with Denny's wife and kids; Denny keeps Joey away from the bottle. But when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a harrowing journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival against a sobering backdrop.

    Don’t miss this dark duologue from playwright Keith Huff, a writer and producer of Syfy’s “Helix,” AMC’s “Mad Men” and the NetFlix series “House of Cards.” A Steady Rain is directed by Steppenwolf Theatre Company Co-Founder Jeff Perry, well-known for his role as Cyrus Beene on the hit TV series “Scandal.”

    This production contains strong language and mature themes.

    CHOIR BOY
    by Tarell Alvin-McCraney
    directed by Peter Rothstein

    The Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is dedicated to the creation of strong, ethical black men. Pharus is confident and charismatic, and he wants nothing more than to take his rightful place as leader of the school’s legendary gospel choir. But his differences lead classmates to lash out with slurs tinged with more than a little jealousy. Can he find his way inside the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key?

    From the writer of The Brother/Sister Trilogy (The Brothers Size, In the Red and Brown Water and Marcus; Or the Secret of Sweet) is this provocative new play featuring gospel music. The New York Times called Choir Boy “vivid, magnetic, and moving,” while Variety raved that the play “sings with smarts and heart.”

    JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK
    by Sean O'Casey
    directed by Joe Dowling

    One of the great plays of the twentieth century, Juno and the Paycock is an epic tale of one family’s survival in Dublin following the Irish Civil War. Jack Boyle, known to his neighbors as the “paycock,” is out of work and determined to stay that way. He and his sidekick Joxer spend their time drinking and playing cards while Juno, the matriarch, attempts to keep their family together. When the family learns of an inheritance from a distant relative, the money is spent before it even arrives. But will they transcend the events that conspire to keep them in their place? Director Joe Dowling’s legendary Gate Theatre production opened on Broadway in 1988 and helped launch his prolific directing career in the U.S. The New York Times raved “Dowling’s Juno is alive at every level – as a boisterous comedy, as wrenching tragedy, as blistering social commentary.” You won’t want to miss this singular evening in the theater.

    by William Shakespeare
    directed by Devin Brain

    This sleek, accessible and characteristically bloody Macbeth will thrill, startle and satisfy—the perfect presentation for both first timers as well as Shakespeare buffs. One of his darkest and most powerful tragedies, Shakespeare dramatizes the psychological and political impact of when evil is chosen to satisfy the ambition for power. After a trio of witches prophesize that he will become King of Scotland, Macbeth’s ambition, spurred to action by his wife, leads to his murdering King Duncan and ruling tyrannically through an era of bloodbaths and a civil war. Arrogance, paranoia, guilt, madness and death consume Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy. Devin Brain served as Staff Repertory Director for The Acting Company and Artistic Director of both the Yale Cabaret and Yale Summer Cabaret Shakespeare Festival.

    THE MUSIC MAN
    book, music and lyrics by Meredith Willson
    story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey
    directed by John Miller-Stephany

    Summer isn’t complete without seeing a spectacular musical at the Guthrie. You know the story about the fast-talking salesman and his money-making scheme to lead a boys band in small-town Iowa. (We love when he falls head over heels for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into an honest man.) But you’ve never seen it here and there’s no better time than the present to experience this all-American gem. Overflowing with heart and a parade of toe-tapping songs including “Goodnight, My Someone,” “Gary, Indiana,” “Till There Was You” and “Seventy-Six Trombones,” this Tony-winning classic is family entertainment at its best.

    MR. BURNS, A POST-ELECTRIC PLAY
    by Anne Washburn
    score by Michael Friedman
    lyrics by Anne Washburn
    directed by Mark Rucker

    What will endure when the apocalypse arrives? Anne Washburn’s imaginative dark comedy begins immediately after the fall of civilization with a group of people trying to recreate the iconic “Cape Feare” episode of “The Simpsons.” Seven years later, the same clan is recounting episodes of the show professionally. Flash forward 75 years, and the story is told in an entirely different way. A paean to live theater, and to the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another. The New York Times named Mr. Burns one of the Top Ten Plays of 2013, saying it will “leave you dizzy with the scope and dazzle of its ideas.” Time magazine called the play “both scary and sweet, funny but dead serious, unique and wonderfully theatrical.” Don’t miss the play everyone will be talking about this season!

    STAGE KISS
    by Sarah Ruhl
    directed by Casey Stangl

    Does art imitate life? Or does life imitate art? From Pulitzer finalist and Tony Award-nominee Sarah Ruhl (Dead Man’s Cell Phone, In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play) is this wickedly clever and charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. The New York Times hailed Ruhl’s new play a “daffy comedy about the emotional pitfalls of the acting life.” The New York Post said it “aims for big laughs and hits its target.” Vulture raved “Stage Kiss itself is a gift and a rarity: a superb new romantic comedy that does justice to both sides of the genre equation. It’s moving, smart, and flat-out hilarious.” Make a date night for one of the hottest new plays to hit the stage.

    THE COCKTAIL HOUR
    by A.R. Gurney
    directed by Maria Aitken

    When your family is in town for the holidays, we’ve got the perfect way to toast the season! With delightfully witty wordplay, A.R. Gurney’s The Cocktail Hour is a heartfelt comedy of manners that pits artistic pursuit against family loyalty. It’s the 1970s, and John arrives for dinner at his parents’ home carrying the script of his soon-to-be produced play depicting his uptight, upper-crust WASP family. Just as the martinis begin to flow, so do the revelations and recriminations – both funny and poignant. Directed by Maria Aitken (Broadway’s The 39 Steps), The Cocktail Hour is the perfect alternative holiday entertainment.

    THE CRUCIBLE
    by Arthur Miller
    directed by Joe Dowling

    For the first time in four decades, Arthur Miller’s masterpiece of good and evil will be revisited at the Guthrie. It’s 1692 and a dark magic possesses Salem. The God-fearing citizens are on their guard and no one is beyond suspicion. As investigations into witchcraft reach their height, a young woman points a finger at Elizabeth, the blameless wife of John Proctor. But Proctor finds he cannot save her without unearthing his own black sin. With powerful notions of faith and uncertainty, and truth and deception – burning as feverishly today as the day it was written – this Tony Award-winning masterpiece of the American canon is a must-see.

    THE HEIDI CHRONICLES
    by Wendy Wassersteing
    directed by Leigh Silverman

    Witty, insightful and poignant, The Heidi Chronicles traces the coming of age of Heidi Holland from high school in the radical sixties to her career as an art historian in the heartless eighties. As Heidi determines her place in society and how to juggle success and failures in work, friendship, romance and motherhood, The Heidi Chronicles asks the ever-present question: Can women have it all? Variety raved “not many plays manage Heidi’s feat of inducing almost continuous laughter while forcing the audience to examine its preconceptions,” while the New York Daily News called it “not just a funny play, but a wise one.” Leigh Silverman, the Tony Award-nominated director of the hit Broadway musical Violet, will make her Guthrie debut at the helm of this Pulitzer Prize-winning gem.
