Imagine Washington Heights, a tight-knit community where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. During its acclaimed Broadway run, In The Heights quickly became an audience phenomenon and a critical success. In The Heights is an authentic and exhilarating journey into one of Manhattan's most vibrant communities. Find out what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home…In The Heights.

Imagine a marriage. A husband and wife play games, making up the rules as they go along. Taking on lovers, exploiting each other. In Harold Pinter's 1963 play, The Lover, the conventional roles of marriage and the hetero-norm relationship of "husband and wife" is brought into the light but also into the shadows of darkness. While Richard and Sarah struggle for control and balance, they each bend the rules, risking instability as they come dangerously close to destruction. Can they find a balance? Will the notions of lust and love destroy their play (time)?

Imagine certainty—the absolute conviction that you are right. About politics. About God. About others. About self. John Patrick Shanley observed: "We are living in a culture of extreme advocacy, of confrontation, of judgment, and of verdict." Today, right makes might. To admit doubt is to admit vulnerability.
It is 1964 in the Bronx at St. Nicholas, a Catholic school. A nun is convinced that a priest has had inappropriate contact with a young, African American student. A priest is convinced that he knows what is best for his students.
A young novice is convinced her students need love not rules. And a mother is convinced that compromise is necessary for the ultimate good. Doubt throws all of these convictions into question and refuses to offer up easy answers. As Shanley eloquently put it: "Doubt requires more courage than conviction does, and more energy; because conviction is a resting place and doubt is infinite—it is a passionate exercise." Experience Doubt.

Imagine flashes of light, and sounds of deep rolling thunder. Let's experience battles both physical and psychological while we explore this seminal piece of English literature, whose title many hesitate to voice: Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Think betrayal, think lust and power—but above all else think Macbeth.
