Welcome to a return to your senses!

We will be BACK IN THE SUZANNE ROBERTS THEATRE this November, and we invite you all to join us - safely - for art that will heal your theatre-starved souls.

The season ahead is one of firsts - TWO world premieres! - and offers you three rich sensory experiences. The Garbologists, by Lindsay Joelle, is a slyly off-beat buddy comedy, Choir Boy, by Academy Award-winner Tarell Alvin McCraney, literally sings with newly arranged gospel and R&B music, and Where We Belong, Madeline Sayet's poetic and deep solo journey in our globalized but fractured world, takes us through a tactile, sound- and light-filled personal exploration of her people's cultural history. Learn more about our season here.

I ask you now to join us in our most important season yet.

In addition to the season ahead, we are also developing future work. Last week, we produced a developmental reading of The Tattooed Lady, which we commissioned in 2020. This new musical, with music and lyrics by Max Vernon (KPOP, The View Upstairs) and a book co-written by Obie winner Erin Courtney (for A Map of Virtue) and Vernon, was developed with and directed by Ellie Heyman (Dave Malloy’s Beardo, and winner of the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production for The Great Work Begins).

Leading the reading was theatre icon Penny Fuller (Anastasia), joined by Julia Murney (The Wild Party, Lennon), David Patrick Kelly (Once), Rebecca Naomi Jones (Tony nominee for Oklahoma!), Katie Thompson (Giant), Sav Souza (upcoming 1776), Christina Sajous (American Idiot), Mason Alexander Park (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), newcomer Maya Lagerstam, recording artist Sophia Ramos and Jane Bruce (Jagged Little Pill).

We will premiere this exciting new musical at PTC in the Fall of 2022. To take a look at the journey so far, be sure to watch our documentary, Make Your Mark,

  2. We are asking you to wear a mask while inside the theatre. 

  3. We will also be offering reduced capacity seating in the mezzanine to welcome those patrons who need an additional precaution in order to reenter the theatre.
