Profile Theatre - ELLIOT, A SOLDIER'S FUGUE
February 2-19 - Morrison Stage @ 7:30pm; Sundays @ 2pm only
Nineteen-year-old Lance Corporal Elliot Ortiz, U.S.M.C. is a recently anointed hometown hero who returns from the Iraq War with a leg injury and a difficult question: Will he go back to war a second time? Tracing the legacy of combat service through three generations of a Puerto Rican family, this evocative, lyrical and often humorous tale explores how the landscape of the soul is transformed by war.
PRESIDENTS' DAY AT ARTISTS REP
Monday, February 20
4:30 PM | Morrison Lobby
Artists Rep will host a FREE public, live-stream of the first of a four-part series of The Public Theater’s Public Forum: A Well-Ordered Nation. The February 20 forum is called Public Forum: The Stuff of Fiction. The Public Theater and The New Yorker will bring together a group of experts in make-believe, including playwright Tony Kushner; poet, essayist, and playwright Claudia Rankine, acclaimed author Salman Rushdie, and moderated by David Remnick, to make sense of an American moment when truth can feel stranger than fiction.
About The Public Theater’s Public Forum: A Well-Ordered Nation.
Over four evenings in the coming months, artists, thinkers, journalists, performers, and politicians will come together at The Public to consider what it means to be responsible citizens and how culture can respond to politics in the age of Donald Trump. Artists Rep plans to stream all four events. Visit The Public’s website HERE to learn more.
7 PM | Alder Stage

Late Night Piano Bar
February 25 - Morrison Lobby @ 10pm
It is karaoke with Mont Chris Hubbard as your live accompanist! This is songs around a campfire-except instead of smoke and s'mores, you have snacks and craft beers on tap. It is a not-too-quiet, not-too-loud, not-too-crazy, not-too-sane destination for the end of your night.
More info HERE.
March 5 - Alder Stage @ 7:30pm
A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM - Staged Reading with Pre- and Post-Show Discussions. An OSF Play On! Translation of William Shakespeare's play Translated by Jeff Whitty, Directed by Michael Mendelson.
Frontier Series - WINNERS AND LOSERS
March 24-26 - Alder Stage @ 7:30pm; Sunday @ 2pm
Is Joe Biden a loser? Is Kanye West a winner? What about microwave ovens, Goldman Sachs or Mexico? Old friends Marcus Youssef and James Long dissect a series of people, places and things in a seemingly harmless game called Winners and Losers. What starts out as a friendly competition quickly becomes personal - unpacking layers of privilege, class and status - as each seek to defeat the other.
Corrib Theatre - CHAPATTI
April 4-5 - 3 & 4 @ 7:30pm; 5 @ 2pm
A remount of our successful 2016 Northwest Premiere production. CHAPATTI is a love story between two people who have given up on the possibility of love. Dan lives alone in a Dublin flat and spends his time with his dog, Chapatti. Betty also lives alone – with her nineteen cats. CHAPATTI is a tender, funny, compassionate, and unsentimental play about second chances that relies on the power of the spoken word, the challenge of communication, and the complexity of lived and shared experience.
