Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lynn Nottage’s play “Intimate Apparel” tells the story of a 1905 successful African American seamstress who makes revolutionary undergarments for an array of women – from high-society socialites to enterprising ladies of the night. Her business, innovative skills, and utter discretion are much in demand, but at 35, her personal life has taken a backseat. “Intimate Apparel” explores her forbidden relationships with an Orthodox Jewish fabric vendor, her privileged and struggling clientele, and a long-distance suitor who will profoundly change her life.

“Master Class,” the Tony-winning play by Terrence McNally, tells the story of the uncompromising opera diva Maria Callas as she delivers a life altering master class to students at an elite opera training program.

Based on a series of real-life classes Callas delivered at Juilliard, “Master Class” inspires us, transports us, and transforms us by carving a window into the soul of one of the most complicated and celebrated artists of the 20th century who pushed the boundaries of artistic sacrifice and quality.
