September 18 - November 18, 2018

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musicals. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious BIG, this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

A wildly inventive collage of childhood memories and family dysfunctions, Fun Home was acclaimed as Broadway's most original show in years. Based on Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir, this emotionally adept musical traces the relationship between a daughter and her overbearing father. It was nominated for an astounding twelve Tony Awards, and won five, including Best Musical.

Inspired by the other worldly compositions of Esa Pekka Salonen, this all male piece is a powerful and athletic journey that weaves together drama, violence, and vulnerability with astonishing grace and innovation.
