The Secret Garden
Now Thru Nov 29, 2015
Book and Lyrics by Marsha Norman
Music by Lucy Simon
Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett
“A show about courageous children who show lost adults how to deal with their pasts and embrace their gifts.”
– The Chicago Tribune
Orphaned in a cholera epidemic, 10-year-old Mary Lennox travels from India to her new home in England where she is taken in by her distant and detached uncle, Archibald Craven, who is still grieving from the loss of his wife a decade earlier. Secrets of the past haunt the corners of the Craven manor, and soon Mary can only find refuge in a mysteriously locked garden that becomes her kingdom and her oasis. A lush, Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning musical based on the classic novel of the same name, The Secret Garden is an enchanting story about the pains and joys of growing up, and the beauty that often grows in the places we least expect.
X’s and O’s (A Football Love Story)
Nov 13 – Dec 20, 2015
By KJ Sanchez with Jenny Mercein
“Like the game itself: some of the hits are so hard, they’ll make you uncomfortable, but you won’t want to stop watching.”
– San Jose Mercury News (UK)
Baltimore. Loves. Football. And as the season kicks into high gear, Center Stage brings you a deeply moving, ripped-from-the-headlines play about our love for the game. Based on interviews with players, their families, and their fans, X’s and O’s delves deep into the questions that are being asked around dinner tables across the country: what are the dangers of the game? Should our children play? How do we balance our love for the sport with its potential risks? Co-commissioned by Center Stage and Berkeley Repertory Theater, and developed in part through Center Stage’s Play Lab series, X’s and O’s is a celebration of football that fearlessly tackles the sometimes tragic results of our passion for the sport.
