has been cancelled.
All events and performances scheduled at the theater from now through the end of August 2020 will be cancelled. Your health and the health of our theater and its artists are a top priority, and this extended closure reflects that priority.
Many of you may be asking, “now what?”
First, keep your eyes on your inbox. We’ll be following-up soon with some information for season subscribers and ticket holders.
Second, stay tuned to our social media pages for fun, engaging content that celebrates the artists and the work of our previous 19 years. Photos, videos, informal audience polls – if you miss your PTP community, join us on those pages for some virtual interaction.
We’ll see you at the theater.
SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF
By Terry Teachout
September 20 – October 6, 2019
STARRING DWIGHT MAHABIR
In this one-man, three-character play, the same actor plays famous jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong four months before his death; his manager, Joe Glaser; and trumpeter Miles Davis, who admired Armstrong’s playing but disliked his onstage manner.
MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLY
By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon
November 15 – December 1, 2019
A sequel to Jane Austen’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, set two years after the novel ends, MISS BENNET continues the story, only this time with bookish middle sister Mary as its unlikely heroine. This story is funny, romantic, and feminist to the core.
LEND ME A TENOR
By Ken Ludwig
January 10 – 26, 2020
Winner of three Tony Awards and four Drama Desk Awards, LEND ME A TENOR is a madcap, screwball farce of mistaken identity guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter. “A sensation on Broadway.” “A remarkable piece of theater.”
By Lucy Prebble
March 6 – 22, 2020
THE EFFECT is a clinical romance. This funny, moving, and perhaps surprisingly human play explores questions of sanity, neurology, and the limits of medicine alongside ideas of fate, loyalty, and the inevitability of physical attraction. “Rich and rewarding. As intelligent as it is deeply human.”
AFTER MISS JULIE
By Patrick Marber
May 1 – 17, 2020
AFTER MISS JULIE relocates August Strindberg’s 1888 tragedy about sex and class to an English country house on the eve of the British Labour party’s “landslide” election victory in 1945.
By Karen Zacarias
July 17 – August 2, 2020
Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this hilarious comedy of good intentions and bad manners. “A true breath of fresh comic air.”
