The Great Society (Staged Reading)

Arts/Entertainment

The Great Society was a set of domestic programs in the United States launched by Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964–65. The main goal was the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. The play, performed by Lyric Rep as a stage reading, chronicles the second Presidential term of Lyndon B. Johnson; the escalation of the Vietnam War, the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, and Richard Nixon’s rise to power.

Murder for Two

Arts/Entertainment

Part classic musical, part murder mystery, and part zany farce, this show celebrates the kind of theatre the Lyric Rep has been producing from the very beginning. In this hilarious 90-minute show, two performers play 13 roles—not to mention the piano—in a witty and winking homage to old-fashioned murder mysteries.

Clybourne Park

Arts/Entertainment

Clybourne Park portrays fictional events set immediately after A Raisin in the Sun and fifty years later. The play is loosely based on historical events that took place in the city of Chicago. Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

A Raisin in the Sun

Arts/Entertainment

The New York Times calls this “the play that changed American theater forever.” In this play, Hansberry - a pioneering, female, African-American playwright - covers issues of racism, discrimination, generational clashes, civil rights, and the women’s movement through the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
