The Court Theatre's 2024-2025 Season

EAST TEXAS HOT LINKS

Sep 06, 2024 — Sep 29, 2024

BY EUGENE LEE
DIRECTED BY RESIDENT ARTIST RON OJ PARSON

 

Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, East Texas Hot Links is a gripping character study, a lyrical masterpiece, and portrait of community. It is 1955 in the piney woods of East Texas and racial tensions are high, yet the Top O’ the Hill Café remains a haven. There, regulars share stories, joke, unwind, and trade friendly barbs. The café is a refuge that keeps the outside world at bay, until a mysterious omen forces the outside in.

 


FALSETTOS

Nov 08, 2024 — Dec 08, 2024

MUSIC AND LYRICS BY WILLIAM FINN
BOOK BY WILLIAM FINN AND JAMES LAPINE
CO-PRODUCED WITH TIMELINE THEATRE COMPANY
DIRECTED BY NICK BOWLING, TIMELINE THEATRE ASSOCIATE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

 

Marvin has left his wife, Trina, for his male lover; Trina has married Marvin’s therapist; and their son, Jason, is grappling with his parents' divorce and his looming Bar Mitzvah. Everyone’s world has been upended and now they must explore what their new lives may hold. Featuring a sung-through score and set against the backdrop of the AIDS epidemic, Falsettos is a humorous and heartbreaking web of ex-spouses, co-parents, new lovers, and the lesbians next door.

 


A RAISIN IN THE SUN

Feb 07, 2025 — Mar 09, 2025

BY LORRAINE HANSBERRY
DIRECTED BY ASSOCIATE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR GABRIELLE RANDLE-BENT

 

Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun is a stunning portrayal of a family’s fight for dignity and the right to dream. As the Youngers await their recently deceased patriarch’s life insurance check, they allow themselves to imagine a bigger life – a life with room to breathe – until those plans are thrown into jeopardy. Hansberry’s language rings as wise and prescient as ever in her moving answer to Langston Hughes’s question, What happens to a dream deferred?

 


BERLIN

Apr 25, 2025 — May 18, 2025

A NEW ADAPTATION BY MICKLE MAHER
BASED ON THE GRAPHIC NOVEL BY JASON LUTES
DIRECTED BY MARILYN F. VITALE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR CHARLES NEWELL

 

Berlin is an unforgettable mosaic of intersecting narratives set amidst the decline of Weimar Germany. This original commission brings Jason Lutes’s exhilarating and acclaimed graphic novel to life. Fascism is taking hold; revolutionaries are organizing; creatives are trying to capture the ineffable nature of their changing city; and – as everything falls apart – everyone is faced with a choice: abandon Berlin or fight to survive.
