MEASURE FOR MEASURE

Sunday, October 1

With athletic theatricality and Marx-Brothers-inspired slapstick, the ERS ensemble brings exciting new life to this story of impossible moral choices in 17th-century Vienna. Radical experiments with speed set the play’s combination of the comically absurd and the tragically serious in stark relief, and deliver a remarkable new show that marries the company’s unique performance style with the Bard’s exquisitely lyrical language. ERS Founder and Artistic Director John Collins directs.

Sunday, October 1

Thousands of people wrote letters asking for advice from an anonymous online columnist named Sugar, who drew from her own life experiences to answer in a candid, often brutally honest exchange. It was later revealed that Sugar was Cheryl Strayed. Vardalos adapts the book, weaving together the real letters to explore the monstrous beauty, unfathomable dark and glimmering light which are at the heart of being human.

Public Forum & Public Shakespeare Initiative:
AND JUSTICE FOR ALL

Sunday, October 1

What is our duty of care to our fellow citizens? When the law seems unjust, how are we to respond? Shakespeare pondered these questions over 400 years ago in Measure for Measure but they remain of vital importance in the present. As Elevator Repair Service presents their take on Shakespeare’s ‘problem play,’ Public Forum collaborates with The Public’s Shakespeare Initiative to bring together a cast of artists, activists and intellectuals to grapple with how we approach the idea of justice today.

OEDIPUS EL REY

OEDIPUS EL REY

Tuesday, October 3

Set in South Central LA, OEDIPUS EL REY is an electrifying new take on the Greek tragedy, written by acclaimed playwright Luis Alfaro (Electricidad, Straight as a Line).

Oedipus is reimagined as a troubled Latino whose dreams of controlling his own destiny soar above the barbed wire of the prison where he’s spent his life.  But in a place where everyone is trapped—by desperation or fate, history or violence—no one man can change his story alone.  Love, family and belief collide in this chilling, incredibly powerful new play that asks: what’s fate, and what’s just the system?

With athletic theatricality and Marx-Brothers-inspired slapstick, the ERS ensemble brings exciting new life to this story of impossible moral choices in 17th-century Vienna. Radical experiments with speed set the play’s combination of the comically absurd and the tragically serious in stark relief, and deliver a remarkable new show that marries the company’s unique performance style with the Bard’s exquisitely lyrical language. ERS Founder and Artistic Director John Collins directs.

Thousands of people wrote letters asking for advice from an anonymous online columnist named Sugar, who drew from her own life experiences to answer in a candid, often brutally honest exchange. It was later revealed that Sugar was Cheryl Strayed. Vardalos adapts the book, weaving together the real letters to explore the monstrous beauty, unfathomable dark and glimmering light which are at the heart of being human. 


OEDIPUS EL REY

OEDIPUS EL REY

Friday, October 20

Set in South Central LA, OEDIPUS EL REY is an electrifying new take on the Greek tragedy, written by acclaimed playwright Luis Alfaro (Electricidad, Straight as a Line).

Oedipus is reimagined as a troubled Latino whose dreams of controlling his own destiny soar above the barbed wire of the prison where he’s spent his life.  But in a place where everyone is trapped—by desperation or fate, history or violence—no one man can change his story alone.  Love, family and belief collide in this chilling, incredibly powerful new play that asks: what’s fate, and what’s just the system?

Gina was warned that one of her students would be a problem. Eighteen years old and strikingly odd, Dennis writes violently obscene work clearly intended to unsettle those around him. Determined to know whether he’s a real threat, Gina compels Dennis to attend her office hours.

But as the clock ticks down, Gina realizes that “good” versus “bad” is nothing more than a convenient illusion, and that the isolated young student in her office has learned one thing above all else: that for the powerless, the ability to terrify others is powerful indeed.

ILLYRIA

ILLYRIA

Sunday, October 22

It is 1958, and New York City is in the midst of a major building boom; a four-lane highway is planned for the heart of Washington Square; Carnegie Hall is designated for demolition; entire neighborhoods on the West Side are leveled to make room for a new ‘palace of art’. And a young Joe Papp and his colleagues face betrayals, self-inflicted wounds and anger from the city’s powerful elite as they continue their free Shakespeare productions in Central Park.

From the creator of the most celebrated family plays of the last decade, comes as drama about a different kind of family – one held together by the simple and incredibly complicated belief that the theater, and the city, belong to all of us.
