The season begins with the Arizona premiere of the humorous and heartwarming play, Like Heaven, written by UA Professor Elaine Romero. The season continues with, Sister Act, based on the 1993 hit movie starring Whoopi Goldberg. This uplifting musical is the story of Deloris Van Cartier, who breathes hilarious life into a convent and discovers a new sisterhood. The third production of the season brings the work of Martin McDonagh to the stage in The Cripple of Inishmaan. Known for the recently Oscar nominated film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, McDonagh presents a poignant comic masterpiece that is equal parts dark comedy and Irish fable.
Arizona Repertory Theatre kicks off 2019 with a celebration of women throughout history and reminds us of the distance still left to be traveled in Top Girls by Caryl Churchill. Considered one of the most important playwrights of today, Churchill presents a brilliantly written script and captures the exhilaration of an era. This story of great women is followed by the story of a great, yet wicked man, Richard III. In this historical tale, Shakespeare’s most notorious villain conspires and kills his way to the crown. The season comes to a close in dynamic fashion with the eight-time Tony Award-winning musical, Spring Awakening. This landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock-n-roll.
