Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

by Tennessee Williams

February 11 - 19, 2022

Pulitzer winner in 1955

In 1955 - the year his Cat won the Pulitzer - The New York Times observed, “Mr. Williams is the man of our time who comes closest to hurling the actual blood and bone of life onto the stage.” Our production will at once embrace Williams’ lyrical gem and revisit its treatment of race, class, and sexuality, digging deep into the southern soil on which we stand.

Directed by Marianne DiQuattro

Next to Normal

Next to Normal

Music by Tom Kitt; Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

April 15 - 23, 2022

Pulitzer winner in 2010

Raw, relatable, and often intensely funny, with melodies both rocking and haunting, The New York Times dubbed Next to Normal “a feel-everything musical.” Like every play in the Annie’s 2021-2022 season, family is at the beating heart of this 2010 Pulitzer Prize winner.
