Opening tonight, May 5! Clybourne Park!!

by Bruce Norris

Clybourne Park is complicated, thorny and oh so funny. Winner of a wheelbarrow full of awards –including a Pulitzer, Tony and an Olivier–this hilarious and emotionally raw work has been delighting (and perturbing) audiences since 2010. Join us on Friday and see why the New York Times called it “vital, sharp-witted and ferociously smart.”
