The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity

By Kristoffer Diaz

Winner of the Obie for Best New American Play, this Pulitzer Prize finalist is as hilarious as it is relevant. Macedonio “Mace” Guerra is a really good professional wrestler, but he’s not the champion – that’s the impossibly charismatic Chad Deity. When Mace discovers an Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of the champ, he decides to recruit him as the perfect foil. But when their rivalry is used to exploit racial stereotypes to raise ratings, all three men find themselves fighting for more than the title belt. This no-holds-barred comedy transforms the Cook Theatre into a wrestling arena where you’ll have a ringside seat for this invigorating tale that masks a sly allegory about race, class and power.

The Great Society

By Robert Schenkkan
Directed by Nicole A. Watson

On the heels of Asolo Rep’s wildly successful All the Way, The Great Society continues Robert Schenkkan’s profound exploration of President Lyndon Johnson’s turbulent years in the White House. Besieged by political opponents, Johnson summons all his political wiles to advance his vision of a Great Society. Despite deep division over the Vietnam War and ongoing civil rights battles, Johnson championed the most ambitious effort ever to test what American government is capable of achieving. By looking back, The Great Society examines who we are, asks how we got here, and dreams of what we could yet become.

The Little Foxes

By Lillian Hellman | Directed by Frank Galati

Relevant, ruthless, and gripping, Lillian Hellman’s chronicle of the dark side of the American Dream is a masterpiece of 20th century drama. Set in 1900 in the deep South, Regina Hubbard and her two brothers are nouveau-riche cotton growers who have a chance to become mega-riche by investing in a new mill. But the sib lings still need $75,000 to seal the deal, which they attempt to squander from Regina’s ailing husband. And so the sinister games begin with each of these “little foxes” nibbling at the other’s tender grapes (the title comes from the Song of Solomon) as each will let nothing stand in the way of financial gain.

The Originalist

Directed by Molly Smith | By John Strand

Justice Antonin Scalia’s unexpected death at age 79 has thrown a wrench into the political arena, but has brought intense interest in this daring new stage play that had its world premiere at Arena Stage last spring. When a bright, liberal law school graduate embarks on a nerve-wracking clerkship with Justice Scalia, she discovers him to be both an infuriating sparring partner and unexpected mentor. Written by Charles MacArthur Award-winning playwright John Strand and starring four-time Helen Hayes Award winner Edward Gero (who bears an uncanny resemblance to Scalia), this powerful work depicts passionate people risking heart and soul to defend their interpretation of the truth.
