GIGANTIC

Book by Randy Blair & Tim Drucker
Music by Matthew roi Berger
Lyrics by Randy Blair
Choreography by Chase Brock
Directed by Scott Schwartz

November 11 – December 20, 2015

Getting shipped off to weight-loss camp is hardly Robert’s idea of the perfect summer, but even he isn’t prepared for what can be lost or gained at Camp Overton, the No. 3 weight-loss camp in Southern Pennsylvania. With biting humor and irreverence, GIGANTIC tackles the growing pains of adolescence through the experiences of a bunch of misfit teens forced to find solace in one another as they look — inside and out — for acceptance, a hot make-out session, and the last contraband Butterfinger. A coming-of-age musical comedy fed by an infectious pop/rock score, GIGANTIC is created by Randy Blair, Tim Drucker, and Matthew roi Berger and is directed by Scott Schwartz (BAT BOY, TICK TICK BOOM).


NEW YORK PREMIERE

DOT

by Colman Domingo
directed by Susan Stroman

February 4 – March 20, 2016

Family matriarch Dotty and her three adult children gather for the holidays with more than exchanging presents on their minds. As Dotty struggles to navigate life with dementia, her children fight to balance care for their mother and care for themselves. A testament to the enduring bonds of family, this hilarious and moving new play by Colman Domingo (author of Vineyard’s A BOY AND HIS SOUL and Tony Award nominee for his role in Vineyard’s production of THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS) grapples unforgettably with aging parents, midlife crises, and the heart of an inner city neighborhood. Directed by Tony Award winner Susan Stroman, who returns to The Vineyard after her ground-breaking work on THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS.


NEW YORK PREMIERE

In association with
La Jolla Playhouse and Yale Repertory Theatre

INDECENT

By Paula Vogel
Directed by Rebecca Taichman

April 27 – June 12, 2016

INDECENT, created by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (Vineyard’s HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE and THE LONG CHRISTMAS RIDE HOME) and award-winning director Rebecca Taichman (STAGE KISS), is a deeply moving new play with music, inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s GOD OF VENGEANCE — a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. INDECENT charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
