Reckless, December 1–16

Craig Lucas’ Reckless rings in the holiday season with the tale of a relentlessly chipper woman who discovers on Christmas Eve that her husband is plotting her murder. As she flees, her journey catapults her through the lives of a host of bizarre characters and situations, combining absurd comedy with the gift for closely observed emotion that Lucas displayed in his book for the musical The Light in the Piazza.

Red, February 6–March 3

Winner of six Tony Awards, Red by John Logan burrows into the mind of the painter Mark Rothko as he creates several of his enormous, color-soaked murals during the 1960s. The story pits the tempestuous artist—ambivalently engaged in a commission for the Four Seasons restaurant—against a young assistant who takes jabs at the master’s ego.

The Threepenny Opera, April 6–28

It was Bertolt Brecht’s The Threepenny Opera that first introduced the world to Kurt Weill’s swinging hit “Mack the Knife,” later popularized by pop singer Bobby Darin. The musical follows the song’s title character, a charismatic criminal, as he struggles with his father-in-law—a man grown wealthy by protecting and exploiting the city’s population of beggars. As it careens through a Victorian London infected by the jazzy sounds of the seamy cabarets common to Brecht and Weill’s own era, the plot veers knowingly from melodrama to satire to outrageously creaky deus ex machina.

Summer musical (yet to be announced), May 29–June 30

The theater is currently deciding on the next piece to follow in its tradition of popular musicals such as Cabaret, Avenue Q, and Altar Boyz.
