Two Sisters and a Piano

By Nilo Cruz
Directed by Jonathan Muñoz-Proulx
Cuba, 1991. A crumbling Soviet Union. Two sisters in permanent house arrest, with their art as their only escape. When a lieutenant becomes Maria Celia’s only chance to read her husband’s love letters, they will discover whether passion subverts politics or the other way around. Pulitzer Prize winner Nilo Cruz evokes and liberates the Cuban spirit in a sweltering tangle of elegant sensuality, memory, and music.

Intimate Apparel

By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Carolyn Ratteray

Inspired by the story of her great-grandmother, Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage weaves a delicate personal drama about Esther, a black seamstress who fashions exquisite lingerie for her clients as she aches for intimacy in her own life. Caught in the tangled threads of ambition, unspoken passion, and broken dreams, Esther must rebuild her dignity and her future when her quiet world falls apart.

The Price

By Arthur Miller
Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott

Nothing is simple with family, or their demons. When two estranged brothers reunite to settle their father’s estate, they are left to navigate a wily furniture dealer and a psychological battlefield of fractured memories and old-fashioned sibling rivalry. Before the deal is done, the brothers are forced to examine the true cost of their life choices. Arthur Miller’s Tony®-nominated play unravels family ties with both poignance and cleverness.
