Richmond, VA—Cadence Theatre Company is pleased to announce its new titles for the 2016-2017 Mainstage Season at Theatre Gym. The upcoming season of contemporary, award-winning plays and musicals is produced in partnership with Virginia Rep. The shows include:

John by Annie Baker/October 20-November 12, 2016 (Opens October 22)/ Elias and Jenny, a young couple struggling to stay together, arrive at a bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the week after Thanksgiving. Met by a cheerful innkeeper, and surrounded by thousands of watchful inanimate objects, the two search for connection in lives heavy with loneliness. One of TIME Magazine’s top ten plays of 2015, John intertwines the natural and the supernatural in a haunting meditation on life and love. Nominated for the 2016 Lucille Lortel Outstanding Play Award.

“Annie Baker’s John… is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light. “—The New Yorker

Violet/Book and Lyrics by Brian Crawley and Music by Jeanine Tesori /February 16-March 11, 2017 (Opens Feb 18)/ Entry for the Acts of Faith 2017 Theatre Festival. Violet tells the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the1960s. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime. Violet won both the Lucille Lortel Award and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1997.

“It’s hard to believe Violet was Tesori’s first musical, as her score is rich with complex melodies and delicate themes… Crawley’s lyrics are pure poetry, utilizing the plain-spoken language of the time to create beautiful illustrations of the difference between perception and reality.”—NBC New York

 

Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire /April 27-May 20, 2017 (Opens April 29)/ Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. Rabbit Hole charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day. Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize.

“Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a drama that’s not just a departure but a revelation — an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty.”—Variety
