Quick Sand Sep 21  
Carpenter Performing Arts Center Quick Sand
 
The actress, comedian, singer and radio talk-show host Sandra Bernhard tells it like it is — riffing on politics, family, entertainment and everything in-between. Bernhard’s hilarious new show, Quick Sand, is a mélange of musings, music, and whimsy, “never boring, j’adoring,” is her motto. Covering the outrageous, quotidian, and glamorous, Sandy is “a brief respite from the endless madness of the ever more stressful news of the world.” (Time Out NY). Backed by the Sandyland Squad Band.

The New One Oct 23 - Nov 24, 2019

Mike Birbiglia has a new one. It’s called The New One. He’s made you laugh in Sleepwalk With Me (it was a play presented by Nathan Lane, then a movie, THEN a book), My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, and Thank God for Jokes. (He was also really funny in that one season of Orange Is the New Black. And in Billions. And Broad City.) Now he’s at the Ahmanson telling a new story in a new way with the same heart and humor we’ve come to expect. Lin-Manuel Miranda called The New One “as perfect a night as you’re gonna get.” Do not miss The New One. Some people say it’s his best one. (It was John Mulaney. Also Vogue.)

Jitney Nov 22 - Dec 8, 2019

Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured play follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city of Pittsburgh threatens to board up the business and the boss’ son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed, and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawanna Blues), one of Wilson’s finest interpreters, this acclaimed production of Jitney received six Tony nominations, winning Best Revival of a Play, and winning the 2017 Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Revival of a Play.

Thrilling, audacious, witty, and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down, and took the dance world by storm. Collecting over 30 international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.
