Red Velvet

This stirring drama transports audiences to the turbulent backstage world of London's Theatre Royal in the early 1800s. Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, can't go on tonight as Othello, and his company is in disarray. A young American actor named Ira Aldridge arrives to step into the role - but no black man has ever played Othello on the English stage. His groundbreaking performance upends stage tradition and changes the lives of everyone involved. Lolita Chakrabarti's multi-award-winning play uncovers the fascinating true story of a pivotal figure in theatre history. Visionary director Rachel Chavkin (The Royale and Broadway's Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) returns to the Globe with a stunningly theatrical production of a play that the London Telegraph called "informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking."

Skeleton Crew

Apr 8 - May 7, 2017

Times are tough in 2008 Detroit, but there's still one working auto plant. The long hours and demanding shifts have turned the line workers into a family. The firm, compassionate Faye holds them together, and she's only months away from retiring with her full pension. But when she discovers that management has a new plan, she's torn between self-preservation and allegiance to her coworkers. Ben Brantley of The New York Times called Skeleton Crew "a deeply moral and deeply American play...squarely in the tradition of Arthur Miller." 2015 Craig Noel Award winner for Director of the Year Delicia Turner Sonnenberg makes her Globe debut.
