Nov. 12 - Dec. 4, 2022 - The Warsaw Federal Incline Theater

His story is about courage — his music is about finding it. Straight from the London stage for an exclusive Playhouse engagement, The Lion features a singer-songwriter who shares the turbulent story of his family and his own brush with mortality. Chapters unfold through heartrending monologues and original songs, each one just as emotionally stirring as the last. Six guitars accompany the musician as he explores love, loss and the redemptive power of music. Hailed by critics as a “wondrous” and “spellbinding” experience, The Lion redefines the genre of musical theatre. *Please note, tickets for this performance will go on sale August 8th*

March 25 - April 30, 2023 - Rosenthal Shelterhouse Theatre

Afong Moy is 14 years old when she’s brought to the United States in 1834 and placed on public display as “The Chinese Lady” — supposedly the first to step foot on U.S. soil. Decade after decade, she performs as a living exhibit, showing curious white people how she eats, what she wears and — the highlight of the event — how she walks with bound feet. Time wears on, and eventually the lines between her performance and her own identity become blurry. Inspired by the true story of Afong Moy’s life, The Chinese Lady is a darkly poetic yet whimsical portrait of our collective past through the eyes of a young Chinese woman. *Please note, tickets for this performance will go on sale at a later date to be determined*

April 23 - May 14, 2023 - The Rouse Theatre

It’s 1948 in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, and blues music echoes throughout the neighborhood. A group of old friends gathers to mourn and reminisce about Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton — a gifted guitarist whose star was on the rise and whose untimely death has irrevocably changed each of them. With live blues and lyrical dialogue, August Wilson weaves a poetic and poignant composition about the Black American experience. This landmark, Tony Award-winning play — a part of Wilson’s American Century Cycle — promises a soulful exploration of the ties that bind and the chords that hold us together. *Please note, tickets for this performance will go on sale at a later date to be determined*
