WOLF PLAY–Hansol Jung’s critically acclaimed provocative new play about the families we both choose and unchoose–comes to The Spot April 18-28, directed by Kevin Wade. WINNER! 2024 Obie Award for Playwriting WINNER! 2023 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play “Jung’s play keeps you in thrilling, unnerving suspense.” – New York Magazine SHOW DESCRIPTION: When a young Korean boy is adopted by a new family via Yahoo! message boards (read: illegally re-homed) chaos is unleashed. The boy is not what he seems. When his ex-father drops him off, ready and raring to reassign power of attorney in the doorway, it is revealed that the boy’s new parents are also not what they seemed. The internet is a place where people misrepresent things… In the messy aftermath of the online-adoption one thing is absolutely certain: wolves know their kind. (And they do not use internet.)

ASSASSINS @ The Spot

Start 2024 off with a bang! Grab tickets to our musical event of the season: ASSASSINS by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman. January 25-February 4 @ The Spot. ASSASSINS Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim Book by John Weidman Directed by Yanna Lantz Music Directed by R.L. Rowsey A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America’s four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written. Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical “revusical” that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream. …
