Compass Rose Theater 2024-25 Season

“Intimate Apparel" by Lynn Nottage  

September 13 - October 6, 2024  

Opening the season is this Steinberg New Play and New York Drama Critics' Circle Award winner. Set in 1905 New York, the play follows African-American seamstress Esther as she navigates a world marked by stark social divides and a dynamic influx of immigrants. Amidst a long-distance romance, Esther's story explores themes of independence, connection, and the impacts of racism and classism.

"Same Time, Next Year" by Bernard Slade  

October 18 - November 17, 2024  

Next, enjoy one of the century's most beloved romantic comedies, which earned a Tony Award for lead actress Ellen Burstyn. This hilarious and touching play follows Doris and George, who meet for an annual rendezvous despite being married to others. Their affair unfolds over twenty-five years, reflecting changing manners and morals.

"Proof" by David Auburn  

January 17 - February 2, 2025  

The New Year brings this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama. Having cared for her brilliant but unstable father, Catherine must navigate her emotions, an estranged sister, and the attentions of her father's former student, Hal. The play delves into themes of genius, madness, and the legacies we inherit.

"Little Shop of Horrors" by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman 

February 28 - March 30, 2025  

Rounding out the season is this charmingly tongue-in-cheek musical comedy. Follow Seymour Krelborn, a meek floral shop assistant who discovers a strange plant named "Audrey II." Little does he know, this plant has a soulful R&B voice and a thirst for humans. This New York Drama Critics Circle and Drama Desk Award winner is a delightful blend of humor and science fiction.
