An ambitious 20th century woman discovers James Boswell's lost journals and finds she cannot resist his 18th century literary charms. While reading about his wild and wooly adventures in "A Tour of the Scottish Hebrides" with Samuel Johnson, she is coaxed towards a life of greater authenticity - and fun! Heart and mind spar wittily in this comedic drama about friendship, tolerance, and the written word.

the little OPERA Theatre of ny returns to 59E59 Theaters with a unique double bill of two rarely seen American Operas. Highway 1, U.S.A. follows the story of Bob and Mary, who run a gas station convenience store along Highway 1, and the sacrifices they endure to put Bob's brother Nate through college.

Martin and Sarita's relationship came to a stormy end over a decade ago. When they bump into each other on the evening commute, they try to find a way to set things straight but differing views of the same past threaten to derail their connection.

From the producer of SWITZERLAND comes a delightful new play about forgiving, forgetting, and the healing power of a good delay.

"Fluid repartee that keeps the audience locked in... a cast of consummate pros... flawless timing and delivery... a sharply realized entertainment" – BroadwayWorld


The Anderson Brothers present
The Journey of Jazz
Theater A
Previews begin November 29
Opening Night is December 2
Limited run through December 11

59E59 Theaters' musical favorites The Anderson Brothers return with a new show featuring beloved numbers by Scott Joplin, Louis Armstrong, George Gershwin, Django Reinhart, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, among others.

Peter & Will Anderson and their quintet trace the century-long development of American jazz from New Orleans to the Big Apple. Spanning ragtime and blues, to swing, bebop, bossa nova, cool jazz and third-stream, and showcasing such songs as "Maple Leaf Rag," "Sing, Sing, Sing," "Summertime," "The Pink Panther Theme," and "My Favorite Things," this concert takes audiences down a musical memory lane to experience how these styles evolved and became intertwined with the music of Broadway and popular culture.


No.11 Productions presents
Ye Bear & Ye Cubb
By No.11 Productions
Directed by Ryan Emmons
Theater C
Previews begin December 8
Opening Night is December 13
Limited run through December 23

Setting: Fowkes Tavern, the Colony of Virginia, 1665. Inspired by a dream (and a few drinks), a ragtag troupe of amateur thespians put on a play. A bear waxes poetic, a cannon explodes, and the American Theater is born.

Based on historical court records, No.11 Productions' brand-new play Ye Bear & Ye Cubb drops the fourth wall, immersing audiences in a colonial tavern for a high-octane reimagining of the first known English-language play in North America — and the trial it ignites.

Grab a pint and sharpen your sewing skills; this little bear is going to cause quite an affair.

Join in on the fun! Each performance of Ye Bear & Ye Cubb has three Tavern Seats available on stage that include a drink and a craft project!


The 59E59 Theaters Winter 2023 Season will include:

Wakka Wakka presents
The Immortal Jellyfish Girl
A Co-Production with Nordland Visual Theatre
Written and Directed by Gwendolyn Warnock & Kirjan Waage
Theater A
Previews Begin January 10
Opening Night is January 18
Limited run through February 12

Winner of the Drama Desk Special Award for Sophisticated Puppetry, Wakka Wakka (MADE IN CHINA, 2017) returns with The Immortal Jellyfish Girl.

Part coming-of-age story and part dystopian tragedy, The Immortal Jellyfish Girl soars through dimensions, unconfined by time, gravity, or biology. The year is 2555: large swaths of the earth's surface are considered dead zones and global extinction has begun. Yet in this age of loneliness and destruction there is still hope…

Hilarious, ridiculous, and virtuosic, The Immortal Jellyfish Girl takes its audience on a wild journey through a post-apocalyptic future.


Fishamble: The New Play Company presents
Heaven
By Eugene O'Brien
Directed by Jim Culleton
Theater B
Previews begin January 11
Opening Night is January 15
Limited run through January 29

Olivier Award-winning company Fishamble returns to 59E59 Theaters as part of Origin's 1st Irish, following its previous, highly-acclaimed productions of Maz and Bricks, On Blueberry Hill, and others.

Set in County Offaly, Ireland during the weekend of a local wedding, guests Mairead and Mal are struggling to keep their marriage together. Perhaps attending a wedding will help, or it might raise questions that are difficult to answer. Heaven examines family bonds, life decisions, and the search for happiness in contemporary Ireland.

Part of Origin's 1st Irish.


Big Telly presents
Frankenstein's Monster is Drunk and the Sheep have all Jumped the Fences
Written and Directed by Zoe Seaton
Based on the original short story by Owen Booth
Theater C
Previews begin January 11
Opening Night is January 17
Limited run through January 28

A match made in horror! The story begins in 1946, when villagers dig Frankenstein's monster out of the glacier he'd crawled into after his Hollywood career gave up the ghost.

Fully defrosted, he meets "The One," igniting a love story of monstrous proportions. A duet of undateables stand out and fit in to forge their own beautiful brand of domestic bliss with their 67 (Italian) blue sheep. The comedy is pitch black and horror gets a happily ever after in this wildly fresh look at the Frankenstein myth crafted by the critically acclaimed theater mavericks, Big Telly, known for their bold style of immersive and rollicking entertainment.

Part of Origin's 1st Irish.
