Academy Award nominee Kathleen Turner returns to Arena Stage (after a sold-out run in Red Hot Patriot) to star as the tough-as-nails matriarch Mother Courage, who profits off the very war that's stealing her children from her, one by one. But will the cost of war be higher than she's prepared to pay? Broadway-bound artistic director Molly Smith helms this unique in-the-round staging of Bertolt Brecht's powerhouse anti-war drama that cleverly mixes politics and satire with a dozen raucous songs.

A wonderful story expertly told by five fine actors. The intimate setting of the Fichandler Theatre at Arena Stage was perfect for this play. We sat in the first row, almost on the stage, and could appreciate subtleties of the actors' performances. I plan to see it again with a group of my 6th grade students.

The much beloved story of two boys, two fathers, and two very different Jewish communities in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Aaron Posner’s award-winning adaptation introduces us to two passionate, intelligent boys on opposite sides of a baseball game. When the game takes a turn, and Reuven is injured by Danny, a unique friendship is born. Theater J is thrilled to offer this 10th anniversary staging of its hit production as Arena Stage’s first local guest company in residence.
About the Ticket Supplier: Arena Stage
Arena Stage today stands as a flagship American theater. Arena Stage was one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States, as well as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. It was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway, the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain, and the first to receive a Tony Award. Taking a leadership role in extending theater’s horizons, Arena Stage has implemented groundbreaking policies and programs, promoting diversity in all aspects of theater, from theatergoing to production.
The Arena Stage legacy of world-class productions includes vast epics, charged dramas, rousing musicals, and probing profiles. From the monumental to the developmental, Arena Stage has helped build the canon of American theater. While they produce American classics, Arena Stage premieres new American plays and supported works in progress. They’ve nurtured artistic growth and engaged the community, broadening and intensifying the theatrical experience for one and all. And yet, in spite of it all, in their second half-century they see themselves as more fresh, restless and dynamic than ever.
