Arizona Repertory Theatre: The Last Night of Ballyhoo

The Freitag family hopes that the party will be a chance for their daughters to meet their future husbands–but when their uncle brings home his new employee, a handsome Eastern European bachelor from Brooklyn, everyone must confront their own prejudices, desires and beliefs. By turns heartbreaking and uplifting, The Last Night of Ballyhoo won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Play. Tornabene Theatre.

Arizona Theatre Company presents Cabaret
November 30, 2019 - December 29, 2019

Arizona Theatre Company presents Cabaret

For all the exuberant song and dance, the most powerful aspect of Cabaret remains the political wallop that it delivers. The horror gains momentum around them, as too many characters stay locked in denial or self-interest. At its core, Cabaret is a devastating critique of apathy, and a clever and terrifying look at totalitarianism. Cabaret’s powerful story remains remarkably timely nearly 80 years after Isherwood’s original stories were published, which is why the piece continues to resonate with audiences more than 50 years after it debuted. Tucson performances: 11/30/19 - 12/29/19

Arizona Theatre Company presents “Master Harold”…and the Boys
January 18, 2020 - February 8, 2020

Arizona Theatre Company presents “Master Harold”…and the Boys

Athol Fugard’s “Master Harold”…and the Boys may take place in South Africa during the early years of apartheid, but its depiction of the ways in which people are capable of hurting even those they love transcends the political landscape of bigotry and oppression that inspired it. An ordinary rainy afternoon in 1950s South Africa turns into a profound and life-changing experience for young, white Harold and his beloved black servants. A stunning masterpiece, one of the most powerful coming-of-age plays ever written, and still timely, still compelling, still profoundly moving. Tucson performances: 01/18/20 - 02/08/20

With snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers, this wildly entertaining story will challenge your assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth. Tucson performances, 03/07/20 - 03/28/20.
