Suffice it to say, the past year and Studio’s current season were not what any of us expected. But you stuck with us, during one of the most volatile times in Studio’s history—and for that, I am eternally grateful. Here at Studio, we have made the best of our time apart, embarking into the realm of “streaming theatre” with projects we’re quite proud of, but as it becomes safe to gather together again, I am hungry to share the joy, intensity, and in-the-roomness of live theatre with you once more.
We’ll open our five-play 2021-2022 season in December with Flight, an epic story about two orphaned brothers, refugees who embark on a cross-continental odyssey from their native Afghanistan, hoping to reach safety in the UK. Presented in mind-blowing fashion with exquisite miniatures and a rotating, hand-made diorama, this hybrid theatre/installation piece is an ideal return to live theatre: up-close and in person, but with enough distance for everyone to be comfortable. And in January, we’ll welcome audiences back into our theatre seats for the first time with White Noise, a provocative comedy about race, identity, and friendship by the legendary Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog).
We will inaugurate our brand-new Victor Shargai Theatre in the spring with People, Places & Things, Duncan Macmillan’s (Lungs) sweeping drama about an actress wrestling with addiction and clawing her way toward recovery. We’ll follow that up with (pandemic postponed) John Proctor is the Villain, a post-#MeToo play about teenagers who start studying The Crucible and end up questioning all the ways they’ve been told that power has to operate. And we’ll end our season on a high note with 2021 Pulitzer Prize-winning The Hot Wing King, Katori Hall’s fresh and fierce comedy about dreams, deep frying your way to an all-star title, and the crew that makes the risks worthwhile.
Subscribe today to access the best seats and enjoy benefits like saving up to 35% on tickets and a no-hassle refund policy. Our 2021-2022 season is currently only available as a subscription package; individual production tickets will be available to the general public at a later date.
This is a big season for us—we’ll welcome you back, and to a newly renovated Studio. Our flagship theatre, renamed the Victor Shargai Theatre, is being completely reengineered to allow for a variety of seating configurations tailored to different productions and with state-of-the-art technology to enhance the work on stage. Other changes include new public lounge areas, a day-to-night café and bar, and refreshed façade that identifies Studio as a beacon for creativity on 14th Street. Another change to the exterior—a new valet parking option for patrons. I’m thrilled for you to see it all.
Our Box Office will remain virtual during construction. To ensure the safety and comfort of our patrons and staff, we’re implementing contact-free ticketing. You will receive digital tickets that you can print at home and bring to the theatre or show on your smartphone.
As we open the next chapter for Studio, I’m excited for our future and look forward to building it with you.
See you soon,
