The Royal Family

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

Until March 19, 2017

One of the most popular comedy plays of the last century, this charming, tongue-in-cheek parody of the Barrymore acting family comes to the Guthrie stage in Spring 2017. Written by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber it originally premiered out-of-town in 1927, and has remained a regular favorite amongst theater fans for its satirical lampooning at one of entertainment's most famous dynasty. Witty, fast-paced and full of shade, it explores the desires and vanities between three different generations. A must-see for fans who enjoy whip-smart comedy!

King Lear

Wurtele Thrust Stage

Until April 2, 2017

For the first time in 20 years, Shakespeare's royal family tragedy returns to the Guthrie stage as part of the 2017 season! Hubris, politics and madness take a heavy toll on the once-loved king of Britain, when he decides to play off his daughters against each other for his favor, and furthermore, the crown. In no other play is Shakespeare's tragic vision more terrifyingly clear; and nowhere in his canon does he dramatize more powerfully or humanely that only kindness and love are potent enough to counter mankind's darkest impulses.

Battlefield

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

April 13 - 23, 2017

Three decades after renowned Tony Award-winning English director Peter Brook first brought The Mahabharata to stage, a brand new production based on the epic Sanskrit poem arises. Helmed by Brook, Battlefield is a timely distillation of the main theme and story of his narrative theater masterwork. The magic of the surreal adventure, as well as it's thought-provoking subject matter, still holds today.

Refugia

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

May 13 - June 11, 2017

First premiering in 2015 by students of Texas Performing Arts, Refugia is a piece of experimental theater that explores transition and finding one's way when faced at life's crossroads. Telling five individual stories of refugees spanning the course of the last 15 years of world history, we see the struggles undertaken by those who have had to flee across borders from war, oppression and poverty. With the first years of the 21st century being marred by warfare on a scale never seen before, this modern work is a visceral look into the plight of the refugee, using multi-media special effects and video projection to enhance the storytelling.

Wurtele Thrust Stage

June 17 - August 20, 2017

Journey into the mind of an artist with this timeless musical love story inspired by the life of French painter Georges Seurat and his masterpiece, "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte". Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of love and art, it containts the most beautiful and stirring songs ever written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine outside of Into The Woods. Guthrie Theatre is proud to present a little-known gem that packs a huge impact.
