- Hello Again: Michael John LaChiusa’s musical, loosely inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s salacious early 20th-century play La Ronde, creates a fantasia of sex and loneliness that spans multiple eras. (September 11–October 4)
- The Crucible: the Salem witch trials become an allegory for the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s in Arthur Miller’s exploration of mass hysteria, identity, and accusation (October 31–November 22)
- Picasso at the Lapin Agile: Steve Martin’s raucous comedy opens on a bar in Paris in 1904, where two young patrons—physicist Albert Einstein and a certain soon-to-be-famous painter—muse on the century to come, the nature of beauty, and whether or not fellow guest Charles Dabernow Schmendimen will ever make it as a philosopher. (March 5–28)
- Rust Belt Grotesque: two local playwrights, Justin Karcher and ART’s artistic director Matthew LaChiusa, explore the cobwebbed corners of regional history in new one-act plays (April 30–May 23)
American Repertory Theater of WNY
It started in 2008 with Axeman’s Jazz, an original play by artistic director Matthew LaChiusa that explored a terrifying (and true) series of murders. While the subject matter was dark, the reception was anything but, earning the fledgling American Repertory Theater of WNY its first ARTIE nomination. Since then, they’ve kept up their winning streak with acclaimed darker material, as well as comedies such as Neil Simon’s Laughter on the 23rd Floor. It’s not all plays, either—A.R.T. has explored the work of celebrated composer Michael John LaChiusa, a multiple Tony-nominee, native son, and sharer of the artistic director’s family tree.
