Fun Home  
Ahmanson Theatre Fun Home
 
Fun Home -- winner of five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Musical -- has been praised as "the best of what Broadway can do" by the Associated Press and "something of a miracle" by New York Magazine. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home tells the story of Alison at three different ages, interacting with her uniquely dysfunctional family -- her mother, brothers and brilliant, volatile father. Intimate, emotional and refreshingly honest, Fun Home captures the experience of seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Be sure to see the show Newsday calls "a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention" when it comes to the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.

Plasticity  
Hudson Theatre Plasticity
 
Blending cutting-edge science with masterful storytelling, Plasticity takes the audience deep inside the mind of David Rosely, even as he lies in a coma. A hovering circle of doctors and loved ones, including David’s twin brother Grant, are all played by Lyras in an unusual solo performance: the actor not only creates multiple characters, but interacts with them on stage through the use of integrated projections.

Building The Wall  
Fountain Theatre Building The Wall
 
The Fountain Theatre premieres the newest play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (The Kentucky Cycle, All the Way, Hacksaw Ridge), the first in a series of productions set to take place at theaters across the U.S. as part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. In the very near future, the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promise to round up and detain millions of immigrants. As a writer interviews the former supervisor of a private prison, it becomes clear how federal policy has escalated to a terrifying, seemingly inconceivable, yet inevitable conclusion.
