Announcing three plays of the City Theatre 2017-2018 Season. Subscriptions on sale now!
THE OLD MAN AND THE OLD MOON by PigPen Theatre Co.
Who keeps the moon shining bright? A mysterious disappearance sends the Old Man charged with that task on an epic adventure in this swirling tale of memory and love, set to a wildly imaginative indie-folk soundtrack performed live. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a one-of-a-kind event,” The Old Man and The Old Moon is a theatrical experience that will enchant audiences of all ages with spellbinding storytelling, ingenious puppetry, and the transformational cast of seven Carnegie Mellon alumni who are PigPen Theatre Co.
The Old Man and The Old Moon is family-friendly for ages 10 and up.
CITIZENS MARKET by Cori Thomas – World Premiere
A good New York City supermarket has everything its neighborhood needs, including a charming cast of characters behind the counter. Citizens Market, the latest from City Theatre favorite Cori Thomas (When January Feels Like Summer), follows a hopeful group of immigrants as they form an unlikely family, working together to master the ups and downs of language, love, and staying afloat in the city that never sleeps. Full of laughter and life, this world premiere celebrates an ever-shifting and eclectic America.
A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE GYNECOLOGIC ONCOLOGY UNIT AT MEMORIAL SLOAN-KETTERING CANCER CENTER OF NEW YORK CITY by Halley Feiffer
Sparks fly when struggling stand-up Karla meets super-nerd Don after their mothers are assigned to the same room in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. A wickedly funny tale of finding love (and lust) in the strangest of places, A Funny Thing Happened… is a meet-cute for the modern era written by red-hot playwright Halley Feiffer. Don’t miss the show the New York Times calls “irresistible.”
Also announcing a limited-engagement City Event, on sale now for 2017/18 subscribers only:
LATE NIGHT CATECHISM by Maripat Donovan
Featuring Kimberly Richards
September 7-17, 2017
After nearly seven years, the original Late Nite Catechism returns to City Theatre for a limited engagement in the Hamburg Studio Theatre. If you’ve skipped class all these years, now’s your chance to see the show that started it all! Grab your rosary, spit out your gum, and get ready for Sister’s hilarious mix of comedy, nostalgia, and old school Catholic cool. She’s a hard habit to break.
