Called "smart, splashy and wonderfully funny" by the Los Angeles Times, a contemporary comedy explodes into a musical fantasia in the first collaboration between two of America's great theater artists. Tony Award winners David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly, Flower Drum Song) and Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home) created this provocative new play with a musical that rewinds our recent political history and plays it back through a Chinese lens. A Chinese executive in America circa 2016 falls in love with a kindhearted U.S. leader, as the power balance between their two countries starts to shift and a new world order is on the horizon. Inspired by the West's often ridiculously inauthentic portrayals of Asia, Soft Power overflows with all the romance and laughter of the golden age of Broadway -- and all the cultural confusions -- and turns them into a "form-busting examination of the American dream" (Entertainment Weekly). The Hollywood Reporter says Hwang and Tesori have come up with "the most creatively ambitious new musical of the year," and it's coming to the Curran in San Francisco following its world premiere at the Ahmanson in L.A.

Shakespeare's play King John was one of his most popular during Victorian times, partly because of its spectacle and pageantry. Today, however, it's a rarely performed gem. John, King of England, was the son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. He ruled in troubled times when England and France battled for supremacy. In 1942, George Orwell described it thusly: "With its intrigues and doublecrossings, non-aggression pacts, people changing sides in the middle of a battle, and what-not, it seemed to me extraordinarily up to date." Catch the thrilling history drama now at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse in Atlanta.

Told through inventive and heartrending songs, The Last Five Years is a two-person show that navigates the ups and downs of a marriage.

Who was Mary Jo Kopechne? The answer to a trivia question? The woman who kept Ted Kennedy from being President? The ultimate #MeToo victim? The Death and Life of Mary Jo Kopechne imagines who this young woman was and who she could have been had she not gotten in the car with the senator.

The Yiddish word for "non-kosher," Trayf follows the adventures of Zalmy, the loyal follower of a New York rebbe, whose decidedly unorthodox lifestyle involves driving a tricked-out "Mitzvah Tank" by day, and then sneaking away from his ultra-religious community at night to roller skate and rock out in clubs. That is, until an eager young man asks to be Zalmy's student, forcing him to choose once and for all between the sacred and the secular. Theater J stages this funny and heartfelt new play by Lindsay Joelle at the Edlavitch DCJCC.
