Whenever you assume a fake identity, you risk losing the "real" one underneath. This is just one of the mind-bending problems haunting the title character of Miranda, the new play by James Still, three-time nominee for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In Miranda, a CIA operative who goes by many names is in the midst of what might be deemed an occupational hazard: an existential crisis. Who is she? What's kept her working in the Middle East all these years? And how, exactly, did she find herself directing a production of Othello in Yemen? The answers are as arresting and profound as the questions themselves in the third play of Still's trilogy exploring the effects of 9/11 on one family. Michael Robins directs this piece commissioned by the Illusion Theater. Learn More

“Who doesn’t love Gilligan’s Island?” asks MMT artistic director Steven Meerdink. “Whether you grew up with the show, or whether you discovered it during reruns, Gilligan’s Island is firmly rooted in our popular culture. Certainly the show was written to entertain, but at the heart of the story is the idea that these seven people from very different walks of life must learn to cooperate with each other to survive. From that we get both the humor and the heart of this tale.”
Gilligan’s Island: The Musical first workshopped in Los Angeles in 1989 and the show debuted in Flat Rock, North Carolina in 1992. From there it went to Chicago, San Diego, and Thousand Oaks, and has subsequently been seen in multiple regional productions. An independently produced national tour traveled the country in 2009, playing to sold-out houses.
