Theatre & Dance Mainstage 2022 - 2023

The 2022-2023 season will offer three very unique productions, each exploring the human condition and our relationships in new ways. Each production features characters on their pathways of self-discovery, personal insights, love and loss. In addition to the three productions, the coming season will see the return of DanceWorks following a three-year hiatus due to COVID.

From the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning creators of Next to Normal, this ambitious musical follows Elizabeth, a city planner, who moves back to New York to restart her life. When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth's life splits into two parallel paths – two stories told simultaneously.
