FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME
01.21.22 to 02.13.22 • Geary Theater
Before Hamilton, before In the Heights, there was Freestyle Love Supreme. From the minds of longtime friends Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Bay Area artist Anthony Veneziale, this critically acclaimed Broadway hit takes the audiences on a freestyle, never-before-seen-and-never-to-be-seen-again hip-hop comedy ride. With instantaneous riffs, full-length musical numbers, and surprise guests, no two shows of this slam-dunk hit will look the same.
FEFU AND HER FRIENDS
03.24.22 to 05.01.22 • Strand Theater
Game-changing, provocative, and genius, Fefu and Her Friends is one of the most influential plays of the 20th century. In this avant-garde tale of eight women gathering in 1935, hostess Fefu invites the audience into her New England country home (a transformed Strand theater) to be a fly on many walls. As her friends gossip, question, flirt, and confront each other, they also reveal (or hide?) the universal understanding between women. From Cuban-American playwright María Irene Fornés, this rapturous comedy-drama is a theatrical experience like no other.
THE LEHMAN TRILOGY
04.20.22 to 05.22.22 • Geary Theater
The epic story of a family and a company that changed the world, The Lehman Trilogy begins in 1844 with a young man from Bavaria standing on a New York dockside, dreaming of a new life with his brothers. One hundred and sixty-three years later, the firm they establish—Lehman Brothers—spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. Told in three epic parts over one evening, The Lehman Trilogy is a modern theatrical sensation from London’s famed National Theatre and Olivier Award, Tony Award, and Academy Award winner Sam Mendes.

Brown (Toni Stone at A.C.T. and Once on This Island on Broadway), and the Apollo Theater’s acclaimed executive director Kamilah Forbes, this world-premiere musical event will leave you with “love, peace, and soul” in your heart.
