Powerhouse Theater, Poughkeepsie NY

(June 22-July 29)

A collaboration between Vassar College and New York Stage and Film, Powerhouse Theater presents a unique mixture of live theater works by both established and emerging writers — a number of which end up on Broadway. Highlights of this year’s season include two fully staged Mainstage productions — award-winning playwright and television writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s Abigail/1702 (June 27-July 8) and Stephen Belber’s The Power of Duff (July 18-29).

An Emmy-nominated screenwriter (for The Laramie Project), Belber has had two previous plays at Powerhouse: 2007’s Geometry of Fire and 2008’s Fault Lines. Marcus Gardley’s The House That Will Not Stand (July 20-22) is scheduled to be workshopped as part of the Inside Look program. There will be 10 new works presented during two Readings Festivals (June 22-24 and July 27-29), among them Nathan Englander’s play The Twenty-Seventh Man. Musical workshops showcase Itamar Moses and J. Michael Friedman’s adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel Fortress of Solitude, directed by Daniel Aukin (June 29-July 1); and Julia Jordan and Juliana Nash’s Murder Ballad, directed by Trip Cullman (July 27-29).
