IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

Adapted by Doug Rand
Based on the Film by Frank Capra
Directed by Dona Henry and Kelly Hite

NOV 24 - DEC 16, 2017 | Tickets & Performance Calendar

HOLIDAY FAVORITE: Bring the entire family to be part of a holiday tradition at CST with this faithful adaptation of the film classic featuring the legendary Jimmy Stewart. Meet George Bailey a small town man with big dreams in a vivid portrait of the Greatest Generation in its darkest hour. More than a joyful holiday tale or love story, this show is a powerful meditation on what it is to have meaningful life and the valuable lesson that, “No man is a failure that has friends.”

 

 

HURLYBURLY

By David Rabe
Directed by Jordan Chaddock and Lindsey Elderkin

JANUARY 19 - FEBRUARY 3, 2018 | Tickets & Performance Calendar

DARK COMEDY: CST has built a reputation on works that challenge both artists and audience and this story of the excesses of the Lotusland is no exception. Premiering at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre in 1984, Rabe’s riveting study of the decadent, perverted, sex-crazed Hollywood cocaine culture took Broadway by storm with Mike Nichol’s all-star cast of William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Judith Ivey, Christopher Walken, Harvey Keitel, Cynthia Nixon, and Jerry Stiller. Be here to experience the twisted pursuit of the American Dream in what Time Magazine called, “An important work, masterfully accomplished.”
