Magellanica

by E.M. Lewis, directed by Damaso Rodriguez

January 20, 2018 – February 18, 2018

Morrison Stage

In 1986, scientists and engineers from around the world converge at the South Pole Research Station to figure out, among other things, if there really is a hole in the sky. In the darkest, coldest, most dangerous place on Earth, eight imperfect souls are trapped together. Utterly isolated from the outside world for eight and a half months, this research team must face life or death challenges, their own inner demons and depend upon each other for survival.

MAGELLANICA performance times are 5:30pm on Thursdays and Fridays and 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The performance runs approximately 6 hours with three 10-minute intermissions and a 25-minute dinner break. Artists Rep has teamed up with Rafati’s Catering to offer several menu items for purchase.

Between Riverside and Crazy

by Stephen Adly Guirgis, directed by Adriana Baer

March 4, 2018 – April 1, 2018

Alder Stage

After being shot by a rookie white cop, retired cop and recent widower Walter "Pops" Washington slings back whiskey while his recently paroled son and friends wander in and out of his longtime apartment on Riverside Drive. The dog is a nuisance, the landlord wants him gone, and the NYPD is demanding a settlement on an outstanding lawsuit. After an enlightening encounter, Pops decides to take things into his own hands with a final ultimatum, while everyone else hustles to get what they think they deserve.

An explosive Kansas City DJ broadcasts his articulate, profane and impassioned testimony to American jazz in an 80-minute music-filled interactive experience. Created in collaboration with the TEAM.




The Thanksgiving Play
2017-2018 Artists Rep
The Thanksgiving Play

by Larissa FastHorse, directed by Luan Schooler

April 1, 2018 – April 29, 2018

Morrison Stage

A group of mismatched teachers and actors have been charged by the school district to devise an ethnically sensitive play to somehow celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month. In order to be as respectful and accurate as possible, the three white actors defer to the only Native American in the room for guidance and find their expectations of her insights are wildly misguided. In this wickedly funny satire, this foursome must find their way through a hilarious thicket of assumptions, historical perspectives and school district policies as the absurd pageant must go on!




White Rabbit Red Rabbit
2017-2018 Frontier Series
White Rabbit Red Rabbit

A play by Nassim Soleimanpour

April 12, 2018 – April 15, 2018

Alder Stage

No rehearsals. No director. No set. Every night a new actor opens an envelope and encounters the script for the first time. Will you participate? Will you be manipulated? Will you listen? Will you really listen?




I and You
2017-2018 Artists Rep
I and You

by Lauren Gunderson, directed by JoAnn Johnson

May 20, 2018 – June 17, 2018

Morrison Stage

Two teens – a sick and snarky girl who hates poetry, and a sweet and sporty boy who just wants to get his class work project done – are thrust together to work on a school project about Walt Whitman’s poems. Like boxers in a ring, the mismatched pair spar their way through Whitman's epic Song of Myself into an uneasy friendship. With growing urgency and searing poignancy, I and You is a funny, tender and surprising journey about the strange beauty of human connectedness.
