TheatreLAB held their annual Roast and Toast last nite, where 2 theatres announced their seasons. Artistic Director Deejay Gray sums up his vision of TheatreLAB’s upcoming season: “Climate Change. #MeToo. Black Lives Matter. The 1%. Police Brutality. Gender Inequality. Political Divide. Our world is in crisis and we need to talk about Power and Privilege.”

 

Here’s the season:

 

ADMISSIONS (Joshua Harmon) Direction by Deejay Gray, 9/12-28
A new play from Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) that explores the ideals and contradictions of Liberal White America with a story about the head of the admissions department at a stodgy New England prep school who fights to diversify the student body. Winner of the 2019 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Play!

 

URINETOWN (Music & Lyrics by Mark Hollmann, Book by Greg Kotis) Direction by Matt Polson, Choreography by Nicole Morris-Anastasi, 11/21 – 12/28
Winner of three Tony Awards, this unusual musical is set in a world where water is the most valuable commodity. It’s a satire of the capitalism, bureaucracy and musical theatre itself.

 

THE REVOLUTIONISTS (Lauren Gunderson) Direction by Chelsea Burke, 2/27-3/21/2020
Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. To celebrate Women’s History Month.

 

DUTCHMAN (LeRoi Jones) Direction by Dr. Tawnya Pettiford-Wates, 5/14/6/6

When LeRoi Jones wrote this controversial play in 1964, it was a sensation that remains a ritual drama with a sociological purpose. It’s a highly symbolic version of the Adam and Eve story, wherein a naive bourgeois black man is murdered by a calculating white seductress.

 

PUFFS: or, Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic (Matt Cox) Direction by Katrinah Carol Lewis, Summer
The Puffs are a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders who went to a certain Wizard School at the same time as the most famous one, but they’re not destined to save the world.

 

BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON (Music & Lyrics by Michael Friedman, Book by Alex Timbers) Direction by Maggie Roop, Music Direction by John-Stuart Fauquet, Summer
This show draw parallels to today’s political/populist landscape with their rock musical about the seventh U.S. president. (Co-produced by 5th Wall Theatre)
