John Malkovich in The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a Serial Killer
October 4 - 6, 2013 – The Moore Theatre
A cross between chilling crime drama and Baroque opera with a live orchestra on period instruments, The Infernal Comedy is based on the true, life story of twice-imprisoned serial killer Jack Unterweger (played by John Malkovich). Unterweger, who was sentenced to life in prison in 1976 for murdering a young girl, became a literary celebrity with the publication of his autobiography, Purgatory. Considered a model of rehabilitation, he was paroled in 1990—only to go on to murder 11 more women on two continents. Mysteriously back from the grave for an autobiographical book tour, the notorious womanizer oozes disconcerting charm as he narrates his sordid and shocking history. Each chapter concludes with an aria—eight in all—from Gluck, Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi and more, sung live by two sopranos—both tempting prospects for Unterweger’s bloodlust.
At times darkly comic, at other times bleak and brutal, The Infernal Comedy is an intriguing and innovative approach to delving into the twisted mind of, as Malkovich puts it, “a bad, bad guy.”
Carrie - The Musical
October 11 - 26, 2013 - The Moore Theatre
The gripping tale of an awkward teen outcast with a powerful gift, her fanatically religious mother, and the classmates who push Carrie from unimaginable humiliation to devastating fury
In her small New England coastal town, Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's bullied by the popular crowd. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving yet cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie has just discovered she's got a special power – the power to move things with her mind. And when a cruel prank at the prom pushes Carrie over the edge, she harnesses that power to exact a ruinous revenge.
Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).
Co-presented with Balagan Theatre.

As supporting characters in the narrative, the entire cast, and spirited live musicians are interwoven in Maqoma's vibrantly kinetic world, creating rich visual scenes that punctuate his abstract exploration of race and political power, cultural tradition and personal legacy.

A John Waters Christmas
Special Guest: Kimya Dawson
December 5, 2013 – The Neptune Theatre
Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas obsessed, John Waters - legendary filmmaker (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame), and author of the 2010 bestselling book, Role Models - cruises into town on his sleigh full of smut this December, spreading yuletide cheer and lunacy with his critically acclaimed one-man show, “A John Waters Christmas.” Putting the “X” back in Xmas, Waters’ rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movies and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children’s classics, “The Pope of Trash” will give you a Joyeux Noel like no other.

Jerry Springer: The Opera
January 10 - 26, 2014 – The Moore Theatre
Music by RICHARD THOMAS
Book and Lyrics by STEWART LEE and RICHARD THOMAS
Come and see America's favorite talk show host suffer the worst day of his career in this award-winning, smash-hit British musical.
When notorious talk show host Jerry Springer is accidentally shot on the set of his infamous, eponymous TV show, he descends into Hell, where Satan forces Jerry to do a special show featuring suspiciously familiar guests … until God intervenes and demands that Jerry come to Heaven and help God judge humanity.
Jerry Springer: The Opera channels all the mayhem and excitement of the lurid TV talk show that held worldwide television audiences in utter rapture – the perfect fodder for opera. Featuring songs like "Bigger Than Oprah Winfrey" and "Jerry Eleison" – plus a troupe of tap-dancing Ku Klux Klan members – it's no wonder Jerry Springer: The Opera is called a "shocking, irresistibly funny masterpiece" (London's The Sunday Times).
Co-presented with Balagan Theatre.
Mark Morris Dance Group
February 14 - 16, 2014 – The Paramount Theatre
Two ravishing dance works are performed to Brahms’ song cycles, Neue Liebeslieder Walzer and Liebeslieder Walzer. They effect a deeply affecting homage to loving relationships of every kind and size.

Love Song Waltzes and New Love Song Waltzes, Morris’ ravishing dances set to Brahms’ Liebesliederwalzer, Op. 52, and Neue Liebesliederwalzer, Op. 65, paint a revealing picture of love in our time.
Mark Morris’s newest masterpiece, Socrates, anchors this remarkable program, which features a triptych of premieres. Described by The New York Times as “simply beautiful… [and] sensuously attractive,” it is set to Satie’s eponymous score, a three-part drama with text from Victor Cousin’s translation of writings referring to Socrates by Plato. Demonstrating Morris’s ongoing commitment to live music in performance, Socrates features collaboration between a tenor and a pianist.
