THE AMERICAN CENTURY CYCLE CONTINUES

WHEN: FEB 29 – MAR 22 / 2020
WHERE:
Two River Theater, 21 Bridge Ave., Red Bank
DATES AND TICKETS

Real-estate developer Harmond Wilks is determined to become the first black mayor of Pittsburgh, and to revitalize the Hill District. Starbucks, Barnes & Noble and Whole Foods are ready to move in. But one particular house on the development site, at 1839 Wylie Avenue, must be torn down, a casualty of urban blight. And that house belonged to Wilson’s legendary Aunt Ester—forcing Harmond, and the Hill District itself, into a battle between the past and the future.

"The dialogue crackles with the poetry and fierce conscience that made Wilson one of this country's most essential artists!" —USA Today


FULLY-STAGED AFTER TWO SOLD-OUT READINGS!

WHEN: APR 11 – MAY 10 / 2020
WHERE:
Two River Theater, 21 Bridge Ave., Red Bank
DATES AND TICKETS

Set in New Jersey (“somewhere off the NJ Transit line”), the play follows Julián, a gay Latino yoga teacher, as he clashes with the Latino construction workers outside his studio—particularly the older head of the crew, Héctor, who seeks from Julián something he never expected. The Hombres looks at the complexity, diversity and intimacy of male relationships through the lens of machismo culture. Tony Meneses is the author of The Women of Padilla and Guadalupe in the Guest Room, both of which had their world premieres at Two River.

Two River co-commissioned and developed The Hombres with the NJPAC Stage Exchange, a program of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and New Jersey Theatre Alliance, and through a reading at Two River’s 2018 Crossing Borders (Cruzando Fronteras) festival of plays and music by Latinx artists.

Playwright Tony Meneses is “a distinctive voice worthy of attention.” —The Star-Ledger

RUBEN'S TRUE-LIFE STORY TOLD WITH LIVE JAZZ MUSIC

WHEN: JUN 6 – JUN 28 / 2020
WHERE:
Two River Theater, 21 Bridge Ave., Red Bank
DATES AND TICKETS

A magical, musical, and deeply personal work written and performed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Lackawanna Blues is a reminiscence of his 1950s childhood growing up on the banks of Lake Erie.

Santiago-Hudson takes on more than 20 colorful characters—from would-be philosophers and petty hustlers to lost souls and abandoned lovers—in a brilliant celebration of the eccentric boardinghouse he grew up in. Santiago-Hudson returns to his roots in this tour de force performance with live blues music by composer Bill Sims Jr.
