Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes, A Bronx Tale is an unforgettable story of loyalty, love, respect and most importantly, family. The musical was adapted by Palminteri's 1989 one-man show and that same show was also made into the 1993 Robert De Niro film in which he made his directorial debut.

Madison

AN IMPROBABLE FICTION


Is currently scheduled to begin performances at American Players on 5/27/2021 and runs through 6/26/2021.

Whether or not you watched the play-reading during our Out of the Woods series, we are indescribably giddy for you to see it on our Hill Stage, where it was born to be. This world-premiere staging is, among many other wonderful things, a glorious gift to lit-nerd wish fulfillment, providing a heartfelt and hilarious answer to the question "what would it be like to sit out the plague at a bar with your five favorite Shakespearean characters?" (We know! We've thought about it too!) Like the very best taverns, this story is buoyed by community, and ringing with good cheer; a tale that feels custom-made for APT. Because it was.

THE MOUNTAINTOP


Is currently scheduled to begin performances at American Players on 5/14/2021 and runs through 6/19/2021.

There's a storm brewing at the Lorraine Motel. And the electricity in room 306 may just overpower the lightning outside, as a weary hero receives a smoke and a reality check from a mysterious housekeeper; both of them roiled by the repercussions. A growing moment of connection, unpredicted and unpredictable. It's a conversation about racism and justice and holey socks. About the divergent paths of legacy, and how sometimes a great man is also human. A riveting, poetic journey through Martin Luther King Jr.'s missing minutes on April 3, 1968.

For tickets and more information, click here.


ROUGH CROSSING


Is currently scheduled to begin performances at American Players on 7/1/2021 and runs through 8/7/2021.

Here we have a play that hits all the notes with equal glee - a screwball comedy written by one of the smartest playwrights of our time. Stoppard's sharp and sparkling wit is on full display, punctuated by pratfalls, and led by a cast of characters teetering just on the edge of ridiculous. Even when they're behaving badly, you can't help but cheer them on. Their hearts, after all, are in the right place. Mostly. It's about as much fun as you can have on a stage. Be careful not to laugh your mask off.

AN ILIAD


Is currently scheduled to begin performances at American Players on 6/25/2021 and runs through 8/15/2021.

This is a story you may think you know; a grand classic born on the backs of gods and warriors. But things are different in the Touchstone. In a thrilling reprise of APT's 2015 production, Homer's epic is razed and reborn through the heart of a war-weary poet. Bathed in bravery, blood and the heat of battle, the telling ravages our Poet every time. But there's a reason he's got the job. He may be able to make us understand. Maybe make us stop. History's greatest battle whetted to a razor-sharp edge in a stunning night of theater.

CYMBELINE


Is currently scheduled to begin performances at American Players on 8/12/2021 and runs through 9/11/2021.

Like many in Shakespeare's comedy quiver, this one kicks off with a young couple in love. But Cymbeline is not your average Shakespeare comedy, and things go rapidly off the rails, driven by wicked stepmothers, spoiled princes and a villain with no clear motive looking to flip a hero to the dark side. After all, if the Bard has taught us anything, it's that there is no pain-free path to love, and happily-ever-after can look a lot different in reality than it looks in your head. Even the best of folks hit low points (and fair warning, some of these go lower than you might expect). But that just makes the high road gleam all the brighter. In a switcheroo on the Elizabethan days of all male casts, this one is played by a brilliant group of women, here to spark new insights in hero and villain alike. A Shakespearian rarity, seen only once before on an APT stage.

A PHOENIX TOO FREQUENT


Is currently scheduled to begin performances at American Players on 8/26/2021 and runs through 10/3/2021.

Here we have the classic "boy-meets-girl, boy-dies, girl-meets-handsome-soldier-in-the-first-boy's-tomb-while- waiting-to-die-with-her-faithful-servant" story. It may sound ridiculous. And it is. But youth is often a ridiculous ride, and it's hard to be hopeless for long when you're on it. Feel free to laugh with them as they attempt to find their way in the literal dark, with a bellyful of wine and all the earnest, wobbly assurance of people dealing with death just as they're learning to live life. Quirky and Greeky and oh so funny, with a deceptively deep story, this one promises a delightful time in the Touchstone (or, for that matter, on video). Originally slated for the 2020 season.
