Geva Theatre brings Broadway-calibre productions to Rochester, making this theatre one of the mostly highly-attended and acclaimed regional theatre in the state.
Geva Theatre’s Nextstage productions take place in a 182-seat theater, which gives you a sense of almost being on-stage with the actors. It replicates the intimacy and quality of Off-Broadway’s best productions.
On Nextstage, you can catch:
Triple Espresso (through Jan. 11) – You’ll laugh at the antics of three guys in their fall from their “4 minutes of fame” in this “rags-to-rags” story filled with music, magic and monkey business in Geva’s “Highly Caffeinated” comedy. CLICK HERE for the City Newspaper’s Review. (all audiences)
The Clean House (Jan. 30-Mar. 1) – Mathilde works as a maid for Lane, though she’d rather be writting “the perfect joke.” When Lane’s sister takes over the cleaning and Lane’s husband falls out of love with Lane and in love with one of his cancer patients, we wonder how playwright Sarah Ruhl can possibly clean up the loose ends in this comedy! (High School and Older)
One Man Star Wars (Mar. 10-Apr. 12) – Writer/performer Charles Ross takes on the Galaxy Far, Far Away in this 75-minute parody of the original Star Wars Trilogy as he plays all characters, flies the ships, sings the music, and fights both sides of the battles in this hugely-entertaining performance. CLICK HERE for a preview. (All Audiences)
Push Physical Theatre (Mar. 30-Apr. 5) – Back by popular demand, these performers stretch gravity to the max and show what happens when athletic performance art meets the Matrix. CLICK HERE for a preview. (All Audiences)
Evie’s Waltz (Apr. 24-May 24) – In this contemporary drama, Geva’s former playwright in residence, Carter W. Lewis, delves into “an American family suspended between the possibilities of violence and wisdom.” It’s “a rollercoaster story of a teenager balanced on the narrow fulcrum between adolescence and maturity. ” (Age 16+)
