2022 Season

The 2022 season 

For our first, full, in-person season after the COVID interruption, we welcomed audiences home to the Playhouse with five stories of triumph, family, and hope. Stories of fathers, mothers, grandparents, daughters, and sons rendered in song, dialogue, movement, and stagecraft.

“The whole season is about family — every family. We invite you to engage with these diverse families on our stage and appreciate how they resonate with you and your own.” — Mark Lamos, Playhouse Artistic Director

April 5 – 23

Don’t miss this alternately hilarious and thought-provoking satire by Young Jean Lee, the first Asian-American woman to have a play produced on Broadway (Straight White Men in 2018.)

The best ghost story ever told; now a holiday tradition, this radio play was produced and first broadcast in 2020.
