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.

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.

A DOLL’S HOUSE
By Henrik Ibsen
Adaptation by Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey and Kirsten Brandt
Directed by Kirsten Brandt

In a time of financial desperation, a young wife makes a dangerous decision, taking an illegal risk to save her husband's life. Years later, her secret comes back to haunt her, and its revelation will shake the foundations of her entire world. Written in 1879, Ibsen's A Doll's House is a true landmark of modern drama. Director Kirsten Brandt and Ibsen translator Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey collaborate to create a new adaptation of the play expressly for the Globe's intimate Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre. A Doll's House continues the Globe's Classics Up Close series, which takes dramatic masterworks out from behind the proscenium arch, allowing audiences to experience great drama in new and often unexpected ways.

Previews March 23-27, opens March 28, closes April 21. Tickets start at $29.

INSIGHTS SEMINAR: Seminar series features a panel of artists from the current show. Monday, March 25, 7:00 p.m.
