Welcome, Students and Educators!

Who makes the rules that we obey and take for granted? When are they useful, and when should they be disrupted? Do rules make a playing field level, or does someone always have an advantage?

In our 2019–20 season, we explore the “rules of play”—how we choose to bend or break them. In the universal game of dress-up, we try on different roles to discover how they fit and who we really are.

With a world premiere, a Pulitzer finalist, a legendary immersive rock musical, a super-sized sequel, a modern classic, and more, these shows populate our stages with athletes—real and fictitious—for a season you won’t want to miss.
