- Lesser America’s world premiere drama “Agnes” at 59E59 has earned high marks (ShowScore: 80) and a coveted NYT Critic’s Pick with its depiction of a group of roommates weathering a fierce storm (and each other.)
- After a hit run last year at Joe’s Pub, Daniel Alexander Jones returns to the stage next week for an extended run as his alter ego Jomama Jones in “Black Light.” Jones’s potent mix of songs and storytelling is described by one member as “pure magic.” Qualified members, take note: member night tickets go on sale tomorrow!
- Asking the remarkably timely question of how our founding document “will shape the next generation of American women,” Heidi Schreck’s “What the Constitution Means To Me” is earning a strong ShowScore of 82 in previews at New York Theatre Workshop.
- 2019 is shaping up to be a season of Shakespeare on Broadway. First up is the revival of “Kiss Me Kate,” the jazzy Cole Porter musical riff on “Taming of the Shrew.” You can get tickets starting at $59 from the Box Office, or see it with Show-Score. Oh, did we mention Kelli O’Hara is starring?
- Next we have the Glenda Jackson-led “King Lear.” Yes, that’s right. Glenda Jackson. King Lear. On Broadway. In an absolutely divine twist, the Tony Award-winning Dame (and certifiable icon) will play Shakespeare’s maddest king. Performances start on February 28 and tickets are available now.
- And last, but never least is groundbreaking artist Taylor Mac with the new play “Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus.” The dynamite duo of Nathan Lane and Andrea Martin star in this comic sequel to the Bard’s bloodiest (and first) tragedy. Tickets start at $59.
Stay tuned for next week's recommendations of what to see on Broadway and Beyond!
