Meet Sarah. She’s funny. She’s dirty. She’s 10. And she’s got a secret that you’ll never guess (unless you read the title). The Bedwetter is a new musical based on the bestselling memoir by Sarah Silverman, written with Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews), and featuring a score by Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne).
This spring, Daniel Craig (No Time to Die, A Steady Rain) makes his much-anticipated return to Broadway alongside Ruth Negga (Passing, Hamlet), making her Broadway debut, in this world premiere production of Shakespeare’s heart-racing drama Macbeth, directed by Tony Award® winner Sam Gold (Hamlet, Othello, Fun Home). A tale of malice, matrimony and murder, Macbeth tells the story of one couple’s obsession with power—and their guilt after doing the unthinkable. For 15 weeks only, this thrilling new production will capture the passion and ferocity of Shakespeare’s most haunting text like never before.

A Strange Loop
Michael R. Jackson’s Pulitzer Prize–winning, blisteringly funny masterwork exposes the heart and soul of a young artist grappling with desires, identity, and instincts he both loves and loathes.

The Skin of Our Teeth
Thornton Wilder’s 1942 Pulitzer Prize winning play follows the Antrobus family as they confront the challenges of nothing less than the apocalypse, dinosaurs, war, a woolly mammoth, the Ice Age and raising two kids in suburban Excelsior, New Jersey. It is mayhem, sometimes absurd and funny and sometimes deeply moving, but it is always real.
