A runaway hit at TheatreWorks' New Works Festival, The Great Pretender now receives a fully staged world premiere at the Lucie Stern Theatre. In this comic tale of friendship, love and letting go, a children's TV host is consumed with the passing of a cherished puppeteer. Evoking the small-screen shows that shaped the childhoods of so many, The Great Pretender moves beyond the painted sets and colored lights to discover that people (as well as puppets) need a helping hand. TheatreWorks kick-starts its new season with this bittersweet comedy from David West Read (The Performers). Learn More

Five-time Grammy winner Billy Joel and legendary director/choreographer Twyla Tharp have joined forces to create the most spectacular new musical experience to hit Broadway in over a decade. The New York Times declares Movin’ Out “a shimmering portrait of an American generation… that propels the audience into delirious ovations.” Movin’ Out brings 26 Billy Joel classics to electrifying new life as it tells the story of five life-long friends over two turbulent decades. It all adds up to one unforgettable Broadway musical.
Long Island in the ’60s. The king and queen of the prom, Brenda and Eddie, are finished, while forever sweethearts, James and Judy, are ready for marriage. Their friend, Tony, is looking for that kind of love, and finds it with Brenda, who has become her own woman. War takes the men away from home, leaving their loved ones to pick up the pieces. James loses his life in combat, while Tony and Eddie return home broken as Judy grieves.
The vets try to cobble their lives back together. Tony can’t seem to find a way to reconnect with Brenda, while Eddie can’t connect with anyone. Spiraling into a lonely existence of drugs and self-loathing, Eddie takes a tour through a nightmare of his past, projecting Judy as his guide. By chance, he encounters Judy jogging in the park, and her forgiveness allows him to finally set his life back on track. Brenda and Tony rediscover the love needed to heal their wounds. The friends reunite to discover they have all found their way back home.
