2015-2016 REP season announced Friday, June 19, 2015
The 2015-2016 season of The REP, Point Park University's professional theatre company, will include critically acclaimed and recent popular comedies and dramas by some of the best contemporary playwrights.
The season runs Sept. 4 through April 24 at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, 222 Craft Ave., in the city's Oakland neighborhood.
The season is as follows:
The Country House by Donald Margulies
Directed by John Amplas, professor of theatre and associate artistic director, The REP
Sept. 4-20 (preview Sept. 3), Rauh Theatre
Set in the summer home of a theatrical family, Margulies' witty and compelling comedy tells the story of famous and longing-to-be-famous artists tackling former loves, romantic outbursts and familial jealousies. When the play opened in New York last year, the Wall Street Journal said it was "one of the most satisfying new American plays to reach Broadway in a decade." Entertainment Weekly called it "a valentine to the theater. There are laughs aplenty."
Choir Boy by Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by TomÃ© Cousin, alumnus and Broadway veteran
Sept. 25-Oct. 11 (preview Sept. 24), Studio Theatre
Featuring gospel music, McCraney's stirring drama explores race, gender and other issues among members of a prestigious boys prep school's beloved a capella choir. "Believe the buzz. Choir Boy, the small but mighty coming-of-age play by Tarell Alvin McCraney deserves its kudos," wrote The New York Daily News.
Robert A. Miller
The Flick by Annie Baker
Directed by Robert A. Miller, Point Park University's Conservatory of Performing Arts distinguished master artist-in-residence
April 8-24 (preview April 7), Studio Theatre
The 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Drama, The Flick is a charming, funny and keenly observant play about a run-down movie theater's three underpaid employees who tackle their interpersonal battles and deal with love as they mop the floors between screenings.
