It's 1945 and baseball history is about to be made. A black, female baseball team is set to play an exhibition game against the reigning champs, the Rockford Peaches. Two weeks into their training, however, their coach is found dead. Inspired by the film A League of Their Own, The Girls of Summer takes a look at baseball from the perspective of those who were left out of mainstream sports. It's also a powerful drama of racism and betrayal that's brought to light as the hidden story beneath the surface is revealed. Learn More

Set in theater legend Zero Mostel’s painting studio on West 28th Street, a naïve reporter attempts to interview the famously volatile artist, prompting an explosion of memory, humor, outrage and juicy backstage lore. Mostel is remembered for his comedic genius and his definitive roles, but in the 1950s he was equally known for his place on the infamous Hollywood blacklist. Directed by three time Oscar-nominated film star Piper Laurie, Jim Brochu’s striking portrayal brings all of Mostel’s swagger, ferocity, intelligence and fantastic wit back to the stage in this volcanic tour-de-force.
