Ken Ludwig's Dear Jack, Dear Louise

OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 21, 2021


written by Ken Ludwig


directed by David Saint


For our first production of our long-anticipated re-opening, Playwright, master of comedy and award-winner Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Fox on the Fairway) brings us a romantic comedy — a love story set during WWII about a young soldier courting his sweetheart — a young actress on Broadway. What starts with long distance letter writing ends in a “sweep you off your feet” meeting in Times Square. This funny, touching, patriotic and uplifting story, based on the playwright’s parents, is just the “Welcome Home to George Street Playhouse” that we all need! Come fall in love with live theatre all over again.

Associate Artist Laiona Michelle (Little Girl Blue, American Hero) helms this fascinating new play about Nigerian American immigrants, and opens our eyes to the Nigerian culture, especially as it becomes assimilated in America.  Reminiscent of an Arthur Miller family drama, Ms. Udofia’s moving work, which The New York Times called “extraordinary,” touches on universal themes of mother-daughter relationships, forgiveness, reconciliation, and the struggle associated with leaving our countries of origin behind, while still holding on to the rich cultural heritage. We are proud to be producing Ms. Udofia’s work directed by Ms. Michelle.

March 1 - March 27



We are honored to welcome the extremely talented, award-winning Director/ Choreographer Julio Monge who brings us the American English language premiere of the iconic Puerto Rican Academy Award nominee Jacobo Morales. “Baipás” (a byway detour from the main road) presents a magical world in which two very diverse, strong individuals are thrown into a strange place together and using the legendary sensuous Bolero, come to choose life and love. As this man and woman dance through the byways of love between clarity and confusion with a healthy dose of sarcastic humor, they arrive in an unexpected place. A romantic pas de deux!
