San Jose Stage Company turns the corner on four powerful and provocative decades of entertaining and enlightening Bay Area audiences with MILESTONE: The 40th Anniversary Season. An award-winning and impactful theatre company headed by Randall King, Founding Artistic Director, and Cathleen King, Executive Director, The Stage has curated a diverse array of acclaimed hits, custom adaptations, and exciting new works for its 2022-2023 season including two world premieres, a regional premiere, Tony-honored plays, and an exciting musical capping the season:

"We are beyond exuberant and honored to present an anniversary season at The Stage that reflects the culmination of forty years of bringing powerful, provocative, and profound theatre to our community," said Randall King, Founding Artistic Director. "All of the titles in this season resonate our core mission: to expand community, forge creative partnerships, and challenge individuals in order to illuminate the human condition. When we set out forty years ago, it was our collective vision to provide a home for the exceptional artists in our region and give voice to the new American theatre. We wanted to deliver meaningful and relevant stories to our community in order to stimulate dialogue and ignite change. In that time, we have produced over two hundred plays including twenty world premieres and over fifty new works, as well as re-envisioned classics and cutting-edge musicals. Each production has provided a stepping stone to the legacy and progression of San Jose Stage Company. We are excited to continue the mission and the dream."
