Welcome to the Aurora Fox 2018-2019 Season

SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD (Mainstage)

By Jason Robert Brown

Directed by Helen R. Murray

It's all about one moment. It's about passing the point of no return and having to make a choice, take a stand or accept your decision. These are the uplifting stories and songs for a new world. The first musical from Tony Award winning composer, Jason Robert Brown (“The Last Five Years,” “Parade,” “Bridges of Madison County”), this moving collection of powerful songs takes us from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship, to a ledge fifty-seven stories above Fifth Avenue, through a fascinating array of characters that, when faced with a life changing moment, can only choose to step boldly into the future.

SECOND CITY’S, TWIST YOUR DICKENS (Mainstage)

By Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort

Directed by Matthew R. Wilson

A madcap send-up of the holiday classic, “Twist Your Dickens” finds Scrooge, Tiny Tim and those know-it-all ghosts hopelessly mixed up in zany holiday sketches. This adult comedy is never the same show twice and was deemed by the Chicago Sun-Times as a "fresh and bountiful feast of funny." Second City alums and veteran Colbert Report writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort dreamt up this irreverently funny new take on “A Christmas Carol.”

HOODED, OR BEING BLACK FOR DUMMIES (Mainstage)

By Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm

Directed By Betty Hart

“Hooded…” is a timely and irreverent examination of two very different 14-year-old black boys growing up in America. Meeting in a holding cell, Marquis, a book smart prep-school kid from suburban Maryland meets Tru, a street savvy Baltimorean. Tru thinks Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a manual entitled “Being Black for Dummies” to help him navigate a world of cheerleaders, Black Lives Matter, 2Pac, Nietzsche, Apollo and Dionysus—each vying for Marquis’ future.

LIFE SUCKS (Mainstage)

By Aaron Posner

Directed by Helen R. Murray

This brash and revelatory reworking of “Uncle Vanya” finds a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws and lifelong enemies gathering to grapple with life’s thorniest questions… and each other. What could possibly go wrong? Called “sassy yet heartfelt” by The Washington Post and “altogether wise, profoundly humane and hilarious” by the Chicago Sun Times, this is not any Chekov you know. Never has unhappiness been so much fun.

CAROLINE, OR CHANGE (Mainstage)

By Tony Kushner and Jeanine Tesori

Directed by Kenny Moten

Set in the heat of the Civil Rights Movement, the Tony-nominated “Caroline, Or Change” follows a black maid working for a middle-class Jewish family in Louisiana. When a small amount of money goes missing, buried tensions threaten to rip two families—and the struggling Caroline—apart. Loosely based on Kushner’s provocative and personal story, Caroline features a virtuosic score that blends blues, gospel, and traditional Jewish melodies into a magical, show-stopping musical masterpiece.

Content Advisory: None
