If I Forget

IIF-0003M-StandardArt-6x6-4C-Billing

From Steven Levenson, acclaimed writer of Dear Evan Hansen and Roundabout’s The Language of Trees, comes If I Forget, a sharply funny, unflinchingly honest new play about the stories we choose to believe, the compromises we can’t avoid and the hurt only our nearest and dearest can inflict.

In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s 75th birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate—with biting humor and razor-sharp insight—how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. If I Forget tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself.

Date: Feb 2nd – 4th
Venue: The Steinberg Center, 111 West 46th Street

‪A United Kingdom‪ is based on the true story of Seretse Khama, an African prince who fell in love with a white British woman (Rosamund Pike) in the late 1940s. Their marriage sparked international controversy, especially given Britain’s economic interests in neighboring South Africa, which was implementing apartheid.

The Price

AMTP_356x600

When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz gave up his dream of an education to support his father. Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate. His wife, his estranged brother, and the wily furniture dealer hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long-stifled, about the value of his sacrifice.

One of the most personal plays by the consummate voice of the American everyman, Arthur Miller’s The Price is a riveting story about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future. Steppenwolf co-founder Terry Kinney (reasons to be pretty) directs.

Date: Feb 16th-18th
Venue: American Airlines Theatre, 227 West 42nd Street
