A newly-crowned king surveys a battlefield: his army has won him the crown—but at what cost? Inspired by his groundbreaking adaptation of the ancient Indian epic The Mahabharata, legendary director Peter Brook (The Suit) has returned to his most celebrated work to create an intimate new interpretation and staging of this timeless tale. This magical story about the awesome responsibility that comes with winning a war—and the grace and wisdom required to lead a nation after victory—has striking connections to modern times, and features the master director at his finest.
Running time: 70 minutes with no intermission
Written and directed by Randy Johnson

“Rocks the house!”
The New York Times
“Wild and joyously raucous”
The Hollywood Reporter
“Electrifying! A celebration of the blues and those beautiful bruises they leave on the singer’s soul.”
Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock ’n’ roll. The unmistakable voice, laced with raw emotion and Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. A.C.T. invites you to share an evening with the woman and her influences in the hit Broadway musical A Night with Janis Joplin. Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby,” and “Summertime,” a remarkable cast, and breakout performances, A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock ’n’ roll’s greatest legends. The perfect way to celebrate the half-century of San Francisco’s Summer of Love, A Night with Janis is a fitting production to close out our 50th-anniversary season.
Running time: 2 hours and 35 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission
