Albert Theatre Season Lineup

  • We're Only Alive for A Short Amount of Time

    By David Cale
    Directed by Robert Falls

    Weaving together lushly arranged songs and an intimately detailed portrait of his mother, a charismatic woman trapped by her circumstances, writer and performer David Cale embodies this vivid musical story of connecting to life when adversity is everywhere with his “singular fusion of theater and performance art” (Chicago Tribune)


  • How to Catch Creation

    By Christina Anderson
    Directed by Niegel Smith 

    Four artists and intellectuals in San Francisco struggle to nurture creative impulse and establish legacy—in both their professional and personal lives. When one discovers the works of a black queer feminist writer from a bygone era, their lives begin to intersect in unexpected ways.

  • Sweat

    By Lynn Nottage
    Directed by Ron OJ Parson

    Direct from Broadway comes a Pulitzer Prize-winning collision of race, class and friendship at a pivotal moment in America. A group of friends in a Rust Belt town has spent their lives sharing secrets and laughs on the factory floor. But when layoffs begin to chip away at their trust, they’re pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight.

  • The Winter's Tale

    By William Shakespeare
    Directed by Robert Falls

    Following his celebrated productions of King Lear and Measure for Measure, Robert Falls reimagines one of Shakespeare's most wildly theatrical tales. A paranoid king accuses his queen of infidelity, setting off a calamitous series of events spanning 16 years.

  • The Music Man

    Book, Music and Lyrics by Meredith Willson
    Based on a Story by Willson and Franklin Lacey
    Directed by Mary Zimmerman

    He’s charming and charismatic—no wonder con man Harold Hill assumes he can easily fleece the citizens of staid River City, Iowa with the grand promise of a marching band. But the smooth-talking swindler can’t tell a trombone from a treble clef—and Marian, the local librarian, knows it.
