In one of the latest works by Pulitzer Prize-winning David Mamet (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross), two attorneys are charged with defending a white man accused of raping an African-American woman. In the face of unraveling evidence, the lawyers' own uncomfortable beliefs about race rise to the surface. Director John Dillon tackles Mamet's rat-a-tat language and sharp jabs in this confrontational comedy that skewers modern-day "polite" society. Race premiered on Broadway in 2009 starring James Spader and David Alan Grier. Learn More

This hit Broadway musical revue celebrates the life and times of Ellie Greenwich, whose doo-wop sounds skyrocketed to the top of the Sixties charts. The story of Ellie's rise to fame and fortune is punctuated with the virtual Hit Parade of her music: "Chapel of Love," "Da Do Ron Ron," "Be My Baby," "Hanky Panky," "Do Wah Diddy," "And Then He Kissed Me," “River Deep. Mountain High” and, of course, the title song.
In 2004 Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time included six by Ellie and her husband and writing partner, Jeff Barry — more than by any other songwriting team. A member of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, Ellie Greenwich’s songs have earned more than 25 gold and platinum records, sales in the tens of millions, and 33 BMI Awards.
