Theater Up Close
A world premiere comedy by Elena María García and Stuart Meltzar, ¡Fuácata! is a one-woman tour-de-force performance that brings more than 20 Latina women to glorious life on stage! ¡FUÁCATA! finds endless humor in what it means to be Latina in today’s America, where politicians speak of building walls while tourism booms in Havana.
From Nobel Prize Laureate Harold Pinter, The Caretaker is a powerful, exhilarating exploration of control, social class and the human condition. Hailed by critics as richly poetic, this tangled tale of two brothers and the mysterious stranger who enters their world crackles with absurd comedy that comes to resemble profound tragedy.
Bold, visually stunning, and highly entertaining, Death and Harry Houdini delivers a roller coaster ride through the life of the great Harry Houdini, with original magic including Houdini's most renowned and dangerous escape—the dreaded Water Torture Cell! This dark and tumultuous story is guaranteed to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
