MCC presents Relevance
Tony Award® winner Jayne Houdyshell (The Humans) is Theresa Hanneck, a celebrated author and veteran feminist warrior. Tony® nominee Pascale Armand (Eclipsed) is Msemaji Ukweli, a promising young writer who is quickly becoming the leading cultural critic on race, class, and gender for a new generation. When a heated exchange between the two women goes viral, Theresa finds herself ill-equipped to manage her message in the social media era-especially against a rival whose time may have come. Directed by Tony® nominee Liesl Tommy(Eclipsed), a collision of ideals within the feminist movement propels JC Lee’s riveting drama from breathless start to surprising finish.

Children of a Lessor God - ASL Interpreted Dates
In 1980, Children of a Lesser God premiered on Broadway and asked: how can we truly communicate? Now, Tony Award®-winning director Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun, Fences) is laying this question bare in a breathtaking new revival of this landmark play starring Joshua Jackson (“The Affair”), Lauren Ridloff (Wonderstruck), and Anthony Edwards (“ER”). Jesse Green of The New York Times calls it “thrilling! Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role, and Lauren Ridloff is sensational.” Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Awards for Best Play, Children of a Lesser God tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there. As their relationship heats up, so does their need for control, igniting a thrilling exploration of passion, intimacy, and connection.

Public Theatre - Black Light
Daniel Alexander Jones returns to Joe’s Pub as Jomama Jones, his critically-acclaimed alter-ego, in BLACK LIGHT. Commissioned as part of Joe’s Pub’s NEW YORK VOICES program, BLACK LIGHT is a musical revival for a turbulent time. Jomama leads an intimate journey – through the darkness of personal and political upheaval, and the shards of shattered illusions – illuminated by spontaneous humor and what The New Yorker calls her “very particular radiance.” Set to pop, soul, rock and disco, this immersive performance piece removes the barrier between artist and audience through inquiry, story and song. Doors will open by 6:00pm and all audience members should plan to arrive and be seated by 6:30pm to ensure their reserved seating. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of Joe’s Pub Management.
