Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer prize-winning Death of a Salesman is one of the great American plays of the 20th century. With emotional power, it explores the search of a man for his identity, the conflict of father versus son, and the distortion of the American dream into a quest for materialistic success. Alas, the fatal flaws Miller found in 20th century America still exist in the 21st. Part of the Missouri Theatre Concert Series.

Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday. The problem is, Chloe can’t remember anything about that night.

And what does that say about you?

In times of political unrest, must a man die for the greater good of the nation? The assassinations of Rome’s great ruler of the Republic and the revolutionary leader Malcolm X share the stage when New York’s acclaimed The Acting Company pairs Shakespeare’s JULIUS CAESAR with X, a compelling new play by lauded playwright Marcus Gardley. Presented in repertory, each featuring the same outstanding cast, these two gripping dramas examine two charismatic leaders who rise only to fall victim to rivalry, resentment and retribution.

In the wake of the brutal murder of 21-year-old college student Matthew Shepard many people asked themselves how this could happen? Moises Kaufman and the members of the Techtronic Theatre Project chose to find answers to that question. They traveled six times to Laramie, Wyoming to conduct more than 200 interviews. The Laramie Project is the complex and compassionate answer to that question.
