2016 B3 Season
The Realistic Joneses
By Will Eno
January 5 – February 6, 2016
2 couples, both named Jones, become neighbors in a small town. As their lives begin to intertwine they discover they share more in common than just a name. In this exceedingly funny and clever show, Will Eno examines mortality, marriage and the way people deal with the unexpected randomness of life.
By Allison Gregory
May – June, 2016
This heartbreakingly beautiful new work by the award-winning playwright of Forcing Hyacinths straddles the world of myth, magic and the deeply personal story of one woman. Fiercely funny and brutally raw her story is one of love, tragedy and ultimately hope.
By Nick Payne
June – July, 2016
One relationship. Infinite possibilities.
In the beginning Marianne and Roland meet at a party. They go for a drink, or perhaps they don’t. They fall madly in love and start dating, but eventually they break up. After a chance encounter in a supermarket they get back together, or maybe they run into each other and Marianne reveals that she’s now engaged to someone else and that’s that. Or perhaps Roland is engaged. Maybe they get married, or maybe their time together will be tragically short.
Satchmo at the Waldorf
By Terry Teachout
August – September, 2016
In this tour de force one man show, the great jazz legend, Louis Armstrong comes to life as he tells his story from his room at the Waldorf Astoria. Reflecting on his life and work, the great “Satchmo” examines his complicated relationship with his white manager, Joe Glaser and his friend and rival, Miles Davis. As one actor plays all three parts, a picture of the greatest of all jazz trumpeters begins to take shape and leaves us as breathless as the man himself after a blistering solo.
