AN ACT OF GOD
Adapted by David Javerbaum
Lied Center’s Johnny Carson Theater
“This time there will be no Moses. I’ve decided to give my commandments directly to the people of Lincoln, Nebraska.”
“In September, we produce a laugh-out-loud comedy hosted by The Almighty, AN ACT OF GOD. Michael Mendelson of Portland Shakes directs,” Andy Park. The One with the first and last word on everything has finally arrived to set the record straight. After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (assisted by devoted angels) answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued humanity since Creation. Produced in partnership with the Lied Center for Performing Arts. Individual regular tickets are $34, students/OLLI are $17.
November 7 – 18, 2018
By Bertolt Brecht
Music by Scott Lamps
Book and Lyrics by Andy Park
Translation by William Grange
“You want to live off the war, you have to feed it.”
“Bertolt Brecht’s twentieth century masterpiece, MOTHER COURAGE opens in November. This new adaptation sets the classic play during the American Civil War. The production features live musicians and a stirring score by award-winning composer Scott Lamps,” Andy Park. Follow the fortunes of Mother Courage and her three children as they strive to make a living during the madness of war. While Mother Courage profits from the spoils of war, she faces the ultimate sacrifice in this epic masterpiece of struggle and survival. Andy Park directs. Tobi Mattingly music directs. Individual regular tickets are $30, students/OLLI are $15.
December 13 – 16, 2018
THE HOLIDAY CABARET
“It’s the hap-happiest season of all.”
“In December, our annual THE HOLIDAY CABARET returns to The Rep stage. This melodious night of classic holiday music, rollicking comedy and endless good cheer promises to be both naughty and nice!” Andy Park. Vince Learned music directs. Individual regular tickets are $30, students/OLLI are $15.
February 13 – 24, 2019
By LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka
“You don’t know anything except what’s there for you to see.”
A conversation on a subway turns vicious as DUTCHMAN’s two passengers, a white woman and a young black man, flirt with race and rage. Amiri Baraka’s Obie-winning drama exerts an incendiary power as it dares to uncover the anger and fear buried below polite American decorum. Produced in partnership with the Lied Center for Performing Arts. Individual regular tickets are $30, students/OLLI are $15.
March 27 – April 7, 2019
Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado
Music by Galt MacDermot

“Let the sunshine in.”
The Rep lets the sunshine in with a fully-immersive production of the classic rock musical, HAIR. 50 years after its premiere, the show continues to assault the status quo, while shining a light on the power of love over hate, peace over war, freedom over repression, and hope over despair. Overflowing with free love, buzzing with youthful energy, and pulsing with iconic rock anthems, the Age of Aquarius is back! Andy Park directs. Vince Learned music directs. Produced in partnership with the Lied Center for Performing Arts. Individual regular tickets are $34, students/OLLI are $17.
