HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH

Text by John Cameron Mitchell and Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask
Directed by Tracy Sunderland
October 5 – 22, 2016

WINNER: 2014 Tony Award for BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL
“Shamelessly enjoyable! Electrically tuneful and furiously funny. An unqualified pleasure.” – The New York Times

BCT brings you the show that set the standard for the contemporary American rock musical. John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s landmark Hedwig and the Angry Inch puts you front row for a rollicking performance of Hedwig Robinson’s band “The Angry Inch”. During the show, Hedwig steps out to tell her story about her childhood in East Berlin, her botched sex change, and her life as a transgender person in America. A funny, fun, and cathartic journey of self-realization.

A NIGHTTIME SURVIVAL GUIDE

Written and Directed by Dwayne Blackaller and Matthew Cameron Clark
November 30 – December 17, 2016

The return of BCT’s hit fantasy adventure FOR EVERYONE
“A touching tale of the power of friendship that Boise audiences of all ages are likely to enjoy.” – Boise Weekly

Eleven-year-old Verne lives in Arco, Idaho, where the nights are getting longer. Half a world away, where more often than not it’s already tomorrow, lives a girl named Aki. She hates her new home in rural Japan and he’s terrified of what comes out when the sun goes down. They’re united by a shared mystery and an unshared darkness. A fantastic adventure of friendship, hope and imagination set in two places where monsters just might exist. Appropriate for ages 6 and up. 

WHERE DID WE SIT ON THE BUS?

Written and Performed by Brian Quijada
Directed by Chay Yew
January 7 is a special PWYW General Admission Preview
January 11 – 28, 2017

The sold-out Chicago Latin-infused one-man show by last season’s Brian Quidaja (No More Sad Things)
“A bravura ride that should have ticket-buyers lining up at the box office” – Chicago Sun-Times

The effortlessly charismatic Brian Quijada (from last season’s No More Sad Things) brings you a one-of-a-kind experience pulsing with Latin rhythms, rap, hip hop, spoken word, and live looping. During a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights movement and Rosa Parks, a Latino boy raises his hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” and his teacher can’t answer the question. This thrilling autobiographical project examines what it means to be Latino through the eyes of a child, turned teenager, turned adult.

By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Drew Barr
April 19 – May 6, 2017

An ensemble comedy and Finalist: Pulitzer Prize
“Magically coheres to form one of the finest and funniest new plays you’re likely to see” – The New York Times

After hiring Matilde, an aspiring comedian from Brazil, as their housekeeper, married doctors Lane and Charles have to deal with the mess that is their lives after Charles finds his soulmate in one of his patients. This wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love.
