2015/2016 SEASON SHOWS
World-Premiere Play with Music
November 13 – December 10, 2015
Mandell Weiss Theatre
Co-created by Paula Vogel and Rebecca Taichman
In association with Yale Repertory Theatre
THE PERILOUS LIFE OF A PLAY
Indecent is a world-premiere play with music inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1922 Broadway debut of God of Vengeance — a work considered by many to be a seminal work of Jewish culture, by others, a work of traitorous libel. Alive with popular songs of the era, this deeply-moving piece charts the history of an incendiary work, the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it, and the evolving identity of the culturally-rich community that inspired its creation.
Paula Vogel is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of How I Learned to Drive and The Long Christmas Ride Home.

Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin
December 16, 2015 – January 3, 2016
Mandell Weiss Theatre
Written and performed by Hershey Felder
In a virtuoso performance, award-winning showman and San Diego favorite Hershey Felder (George Gershwin Alone, Maestro Bernstein) brings to life the remarkable story of Irving Berlin, long thought of as America’s Composer. From the depths of anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia, to New York’s Lower East Side, and ultimately all of the country and the world, Irving Berlin’s story epitomizes capturing the American Dream. Featuring the composer’s most popular and enduring songs, from “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” “Always,” “Blue Skies,” “God Bless America,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” to "White Christmas,” and the score of “Annie Get Your Gun,” Felder’s signature creation of character and musical performance will make this evening with Irving Berlin an unforgettable journey in song.
Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin is available through subscription only.
New Dark Comedy
Guards at the Taj
February 2 – 28, 2016
Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre
By Rajiv Joseph
LIFE IS A BLOODY CHORE
At morning’s first light, a new edifice representing the soaring power of the empire will be unveiled, the glorious Taj Mahal. But for the two hapless guards assigned to protect the palace, morning will set the wheels in motion for a ghoulishly funny existential crisis that will shake their faith in God, the empire and each other. Guards at the Taj is a black comedy about two average men swept up by the beauty, carnage and injustice surrounding one of the most famous wonders of the world.
Written by Rajiv Joseph, the Pulitzer Prize finalist for Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. Directed by the Playhouse’s Associate Artistic Director Jaime Castañeda.
