The Redhouse Arts Center

A New Three Theatre Complex at City Center

2022-23 Theatre Season

Join Us for our 2022-2023 Season

Artistic Director Temar Underwood, is pleased to announce Redhouse Arts Center’s 2022-23 Main Stage Season, which will feature an epic Pulitzer Prize winning play, a family holiday favorite, a diverse work by a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, and a well known poignant musical with an amazing score…all of which follow a theme of searching – in search of meaning, in search of family and friends, in search of identity and in search of love. “As we move forward, with much of the pandemic hopefully behind us, I want to explore what we went through, what we’ve learned, and what might be next. First and foremost we want to entertain, but we also want to start a conversation about what we’re in search of.” Redhouse will offer four Main Stage shows with an equal balance of plays and musicals.

In Search of Meaning

Redhouse will kick off 2022-23 season with the Pulitzer Prize winning play, Angels in America, Part I – Millennium Approaches by Tony Kushner, which will run from October 14-23, 2022. One of America’s most ambitious plays, Angels in America is a monumental artistic achievement. Recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, Kushner’s work is at once playful and profound, extravagantly theatrical and extraordinarily entertaining. America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, this masterpiece beautifully addresses questions of identity, trust, justice, judgement and ultimately meaning.

By the Way, Meet Vera Stark
In Search of Identity

Redhouse continues in 2023 with By The Way, Meet Vera Stark by Lynn Nottage, running February 24- March 5, 2023. Our third show of the season takes us to the Golden Age of Hollywood and shines the spotlight on aspiring starlet, Vera Stark, as she works as a maid to Gloria Mitchell, an aging star grasping at her fading career. Worlds collide when Vera lands a trailblazing role… a movie starring her boss. Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage’s fast-paced, sly satire brings audiences on a journey through Vera’s seventy-year life and presents a sharp take on race and culture — both past and present. The story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy historians and scholars will debate for years to come. This “sharp-toothed comedy” (The Wall Street Journal) is both hilarious and poignant, and a must see for our audiences.

May 12-21, 2023

The Bridges of Madison County
In Search of Love

Redhouse will close it’s 2022-23 Season with the touching and powerful, Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, The Bridges of Madison County which will run May 12-21, 2023. Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown and Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman, The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question, “What if…?” Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life. This stunning two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical featuring gorgeous, soulful music is a sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross that is sure to leave audiences breathless.
