What has happened to SAINT JOAN?

SAINT JOAN has been fully staged and is a complete production that was cut short hours before Opening Night, due to the Covid-19 restrictions on gathering.  The cast and creative team created a beautiful production of this classic and we would like very much to share it with you.   To that end, SAINT JOAN has been filmed and is available online.  If you are a ticket holder or subscriber, you were sent a password to access the play.  You will be able to watch it at your leisure, as many times as you would like, and we hope with whoever you were planning on bringing to the theater!  Please feel free to share the password and link with those others that would have been your guest.

Written by George Bernard Shaw (Nobel Prize-winning playwright)

Adapted by Corinne Magin

Directed by Mathew Wright

Tracing the life of Joan of Arc from the siege of Orleans, through her trial and recantation, and culminating with the tragedy that transformed into a legend, Saint Joan is an electrifying portrait of one of history’s most revered and revolutionary lightning rods. Fiery and timeless, Shaw’s masterpiece shines a fierce light on the limits of an individual in a society dominated by political and religious forces. Presented in a new adapatation, stripped-back staging directed by Mathew Wright, prepare to see Joan’s incendiary life shine brighter than ever.

Head Over Heels

Based on The Arcadia by Sir Philip Sidney

A hilarious, exuberant musical that will get you grooving in your seat, Head Over Heels follows a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction—only to discover the revolution they need is within their own hearts. From the visionaries who rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening, this bold and fierce new musical comedy—set to the iconic music of the 80s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, including the hit songs “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,”—is a spirited and sexy celebration of love in all its infinite varieties.

Run time – 2 hours with a 15 minute intermission

Content Note:  Head Over Heels is a light-hearted love story with some veiled & playful mature innuendo.
