(The other two shows are KING LEAR and PROMISE LAND, a barebones physical theater take on the Hansel and Gretel tale retold as an immigrant story.) Loosely based on the Barrymore acting clan, THE ROYAL FAMILY follows three generations of a prominent and wealthy family of performers, with particular attention to the female line. (more...)

Perpetual Students: A Historic Look at Chekov's THE CHERRY ORCHARD on BroadwayPerpetual Students: A Historic Look at Chekov's THE CHERRY ORCHARD on Broadway
