Proof - 2000 - Broadway

This Pulitzer Prize-winning play set in Hyde Park tells the tale of genius mathematician and University of Chicago professor Robert, who is struggling with mental illness, leaving his fiercely brilliant yet emotionally fragile daughter Catherine to pick up the pieces of her life. Caught between a new-found connection with one of Robert's former students and the reappearance of her sister, Claire, Catherine's world becomes increasingly unstable. As she struggles to find herself amid her father's world of tantalizing secrets and hidden complexities, she is forced to face the possibility of inheriting both her father's creative genius and his terrifying mental illness.

Our first three shows, coming back, are all very charming, just laugh-out-loud good nights in the theatre. I always believe that theatre is a place for society to kind of wrestle with feelings and come up with new ideas about how we can heal and change. It's also sometimes just a great night out. There's nothing wrong with going and laughing -- and I think coming out of the pandemic, that is what we're gonna want.
