Crimes of the Heart

A Classic American Comedy

Crimes of the Heart

By Beth Henley
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli

Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts

January 11—February 5, 2017

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize & NY Drama Critics Circle Award

Three hard-luck Mississippi sisters are betrayed by their passions in this Southern Gothic classic—a zany, warm-hearted, and brilliantly imaginative tale of relationships run amok and dreams gone awry. In a hurricane of hilarity and hurt, Lenny’s turning 30, Meg’s fresh from rehab, and Babe’s out on bail, testing the boundaries of sisterhood in a world full of pitfalls and a town without pity.



Calligraphy

An East/West Comic Drama

Calligraphy

By Velina Hasu Houston
Directed by Leslie Martinson

Lucie Stern Theatre

March 8—April 2, 2017

Regional Premiere  

Two continents, two cultures, two estranged sisters, and the two cousins determined to bridge the gap between them—all are boldly calligraphed in this international comic drama set in Los Angeles and Tokyo, past and present. East and West collide as biracial American Hiromi and Japanese free spirit Sayuri confront tradition, prejudice, and their heritage of filial duty in one final attempt to reunite their aging parents. 

“Intimate, sensitive…the emotional stakes are high.”

America’s Greatest Unknown Musical

Hope, good will, and fierce determination light the ragtag journey of Jewish immigrant Rebecca and her son from European persecution to new lives in the teeming, turn-of-the-century tenements of New York in this exhilarating musical from the creators of Fiddler on the Roof and Wicked. A soaring, tuneful score highlights this sweeping saga of dreams and disillusion, love lost and inspiration found, of the heart and soul of the American character.
