2013–2014 Season Performances
4,000 Miles (October 11–November 10): The final leg of a cross-country bike trip lands 21-year-old Leo in an unexpected place: the West Village apartment of his 91-year-old grandmother, Vera. Over the course of a month, the generationally-divided pair butts heads, but ultimately discovers truths about entering and exiting adult life. This comic drama won the 2012 Obie Award for Best New Play.<p>
Nerds (November 29–December 29): This lighthearted musical humorously details the lives of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs before they became multi-billionaire technology magnates, following their journey from a humble garage to Silicon Valley.<p>
Tribes (January 24–February 23): Billy, despite his deafness, has found ways to adapt to his loud, fiercely opinionated family’s ways. Unfortunately, Billy’s family has never learned how to listen to him. When he falls in love with Sylvia, a woman struggling with the onset of her own hearing loss, Billy might finally realize what it means to be understood.<p>
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike (March 21–April 20): In Christopher Durang’s comedy—the winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best New Play—an unexpected family reunion turns a quiet farmhouse upside down. Siblings Vanya and Sonia still live on the family homestead, while their sister, Masha, has become a movie star. When Masha makes an unannounced visit with her boyfriend, Spike, the foursome’s unsettled rivalries become the impetus for laughs and pathos.<p>
A Boy and His Soul (May 23–June 22): In this one-man show written and performed by Colman Domingo, a box of vinyl records becomes the soundtrack of an entire childhood. Domingo recounts his experience growing up and coming out in 1980s Philadelphia, and the trials of his working-class background. The musical works of such icons as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and The Stylistics provide the backbeat to his story.<p>
Philadelphia Theatre Company
Philadelphia Theatre Company is a dramatic laboratory for new stage works. Since its founding in 1974, the company has premiered more than 140 original plays and musicals, with more than half moving on to New York and other major cities. Widely lauded by local outlets and frequently recognized with Barrymore Awards, the company would need to build a new black box theater to contain its accolades.
