SUBSCRIPTION SERIES SHOWS


A Raisin In The Sun 

By Lorraine Hansberry
Directed by Carl Cofield

September 9–October 8, 2017

Two River favorites Brandon J. Dirden (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), Crystal A. Dickinson (Seven Guitars) and Brenda Pressley (Trouble in Mind) have long been part of Two River’s family of artists. Next season, they return to Red Bank to play Walter Lee, Ruth and Lena Younger in one of the greatest family dramas ever written, A Raisin in the Sun—the play that “changed American theater forever” (The New York Times). 


The Importance of Being Earnest

By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Michael Cumpsty

November 11-December 3, 2017

Propriety, society, family ties, love, and the perfection of cucumber sandwiches all hilariously combine in Oscar Wilde’s great comedy of manners. Michael Cumpsty, most recently seen on the Two River stage as King Henry in The Lion in Winter, will step behind the scenes to direct the classic satire of British Victorian society.
 


El Coquí Espectacular And The Bottle of Doom
A Superhero Play

WORLD PREMIERE
By Matt Barbot
Directed by Jose Zayas

January 6–Febuary 4, 2018

In Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a masked figure has been spotted: the Puerto Rican superhero, El Coquí Espectacular. In reality, it is out-of-work comic book artist Alex, who has been secretly dressing up as his favorite creation. As Alex learns that fighting crime is harder than it looks, his older brother Joe wants Alex to join him at his advertising agency, selling sugary soda to Latino consumers. Can El Coquí defeat his own self-doubt and be a hero for his neighborhood?

 


The Bridge of San Luis Rey

WORLD PREMIERE
By Thornton Wilder
Adapted for the stage by David Greenspan
Directed by Ken Rus Schmoll

February 17–March 18, 2018

Thornton Wilder won three Pulitzer Prizes: two for the classic American plays Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth, and one for his novel, The Bridge of San Luis Rey. This quiet masterpiece—a dazzling rumination on the nature of love—will be brought to life on stage by one of the singular figures in the American theater: writer and actor David Greenspan, the winner of five Obie Awards.  


Dancing at Lughnasa

By Brian Friel
Directed by Jessica Stone

April 14–May 13, 2018

Brian Friel’s “ravishing memory play” (The New York Times) about five unmarried sisters on the west coast of Ireland in 1936 won the 1992 Tony Award for Best New Play—and the hearts of audiences. Directed by Jessica Stone (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Absurd Person Singular), Dancing at Lughnasa promises to cast a warm and luminous theatrical spell with its portrait of love, hardship, and, above all else, family.
 


Oo-Bla-Dee

By Regina Taylor
Original Music by Diedre L. Murray
Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson

June 9–July 1, 2018

Oo-Bla-Dee paints a shimmering portrait of an all-female band of African-American bebop musicians traveling the country following the end of World War II.  A sweeping and ambitious play-with-music, Oo-Bla-Dee will be brought to life by Golden Globe-winning actor and playwright Regina Taylor (I’ll Fly Away, Crowns), Obie-winning jazz composer Diedre L. Murray (The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess) and Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (August Wilson’s Jitney at Two River and on Broadway).
