James Fleming ’23 will stage the Pulitzer Prize–winning musical Next to Normal by Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, December 10–16. The season continues January 21–27 with Marys Seacole by Pulitzer Prize winner Jackie SibbliesDrury (faculty), directed by Leyla Levi ’23. Later in the spring, the school will present the Carlotta Festival of New Plays, new work written by playwrights from the graduating class.
