THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT

By Stephen Adly Guirgis

Directed by Michael John Gracés

Set smack in the middle of New York’s mean streets, this Broadway hit is exhilarating, hilarious—and totally irreverent.  Recently sprung from prison, Jackie has an AA sponsor and is back with Veronica, the love of his life since eighth grade.  The problem is, Veronica can’t shake her drug habit, and she refuses to answer when he asks about “the man hat that-ain’t-my-hat” on their bedside table. But Jackie is a survivor, and if he sometimes loses sight of his goal, he never loses his decency, in this surprising examination of acceptance, loyalty and love.

Tickets: $20- $70. See last page for performance times.

Jan. 25-Feb. 24, 2013 - Segerstrom Stage

CHINGLISH

By David Henry Hwang
Directed by Leigh Silverman

Daniel’s sign-making company is in trouble, but he has a great idea: score a fat contract in China, where signs for English-speaking tourists are mangled by hilarious mis-translations. But he forgets the first rule: always bring your own translator because business deals involve much more than wining and dining. And when Daniel falls in love with a beautiful bureaucrat, even feelings take on different meanings. The repartee is fast and funny, and the timing is spot-on in this East-West comedy that embraces both sides of the cultural divide. (A co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre.)
