AUTISM-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE OF Dr. Seuss’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS!

This year, The Old Globe will offer an autism-friendly performance of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Following in the footsteps of successful autism-friendly performances of The Lion King and Mary Poppins on Broadway, The Grinch will be performed in a friendly and supportive environment for children on the autism spectrum and their families. Slight adjustments will be made to the production, and additional features will help make the experience safer and more enjoyable for children with autism and other sensitivity issues, including a pre-show visit to the Globe, an online social story, a quiet area in the lobby during the performance and on-site volunteers to assist families as needed. Tickets start at $42.

PYGMALION
By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by
Nicholas Martin

The Old Globe celebrates the 100th anniversary of Pygmalion with a lavish new production of George Bernard Shaw's masterwork starring Tony Award winner Robert Sean Leonard (TV’s “House,” Dead Poets Society). When speech professor Henry Higgins makes a bet with a fellow scholar that he can pass off a common cockney flower girl as the pinnacle of English society, he proves to be an expert in phonetics but a novice with people. Directed by Nicholas Martin (Broadway's Butley with Nathan Lane and Present Laughter with Victor Garber), Pygmalion is a charming classic full of wit and humor.

Previews Jan. 12-16, opens Jan. 17, closes Feb. 17. Tickets start at $29.

THE BROTHERS SIZE
By
Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by Tea Alagi

Infused with music and the rhythms of the South, The Brothers Size blends West African mythology with a modern-day story of the Louisiana bayou. After his release from prison, Oshoosi Size seeks out his brother, Ogun, who is an upright and law-abiding car mechanic. When their family is threatened by the reappearance of a figure from Oshoosi's past, they must learn what it truly means to be brothers.
Tarell Alvin McCraney's The Brothers Size is an emotional and theatrical tour-de-force.
