JOHN | FEBRUARY 22 - APRIL 23, 2017

American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) continues its 2016–17 season with Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Annie Baker’s new play, John. A haunting drama that took off-Broadway by storm, John is the latest hit from American theater’s hottest new voice—Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker (The Flick). Twentysomethings Jenny and Elias arrive at an old bed-and-breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—he wants to tour the historic battlefield, she wants to be left alone. But in the creaking Civil War house, amid the shelves of smiling dolls and the ghostly landlady, every crack between the couple starts to surface. Echoing with tension, humor, and unease like a modern-day Chekhov, playwright Annie Baker creates a twenty-first-century nerve-jangler that had critics raving.

NEEDLES AND OPIUM | March 30 - April 23, 2017

This spring, American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) will present Robert Lepage’s internationally acclaimed play, Needles and Opium. Jazz legend Miles Davis travels to Europe in 1949 to discover the pleasures of Paris, unlock his creativity, and find his heroine in Juliette Gréco. At the same time, French filmmaker Jean Cocteau embarks on his own opium-fueled journey to New York. Individually, the stories are thrilling and heartbreaking, but what elevates this production is the extraordinary storytelling. Visionary Canadian director Robert Lepage mounts his set inside a vast cube suspended over the Geary Theater stage, with which he frames interlocking scenes from the different journeys. The result is not only a breathtaking dive into art and exile, but also a spellbinding mix of stagecraft and visual storytelling.
