The Laramie Project

Sep 14, 2018 - Sep 23, 2018

In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old openly gay student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, and left to die — tied to a fence in the middle of a prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming, simply for being gay. His name was Matthew Shepard. Matthew’s murder brought national and international attention to the lack of hate crime legislation across the nation and forced a small community to wrestle with its identity on both the local and national levels. In this groundbreaking docudrama, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project capture the human voice of Laramie.

With just 8 actors playing over 60 roles, The Laramie Project weaves together interviews, journal entries, and published news reports to create a breathtaking theatrical collage exploring the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

In coordination with the 20th Anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death, Iron Crow Theatre will be hosting a series of special events and talkbacks, including welcoming the Tectonic Theater Project to Baltimore for the inaugural CrowLabs: Masterclass. Visit Iron Crow Theatre for more details.

This year, Baltimore’s award-winning and favorite tradition, The Rocky Horror Show, goes holiday! Join us for a winter holiday mashup and experience this quintessential queer theatrical experience like never before! You’ll be helping to raise funds for Baltimore’s Moveable Feast just in time for the winter holidays. In this cult classic film turned live stage musical, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, seek shelter at a mysterious old castle on a dark and stormy night, where they encounter transvestite scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Dr. Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.” Complete with call-outs, cascading toilet paper, and an array of other audience participation props included with every ticket purchased, this deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic thriller will be more outrageous than ever!    The Rocky Horror Show is Iron Crow Theatre’s Yearly Fundraiser. All proceeds from The Rocky Horror Show benefit Baltimore’s Moveable Feast and Iron Crow Theatre’s Sustainability Fund to increase artist honorariums and production quality, ensuring that Iron Crow Theatre remains a vibrant and sustainable theatre in Baltimore. Since 2016, over $4,000 has been donated to Moveable Feast through Iron Crow Theatre’s annual production of The Rocky Horror Show.

The Mystery of Love & Sex

Jan 25, 2019 - Feb 3, 2019

Straight from Lincoln Center Theatre in NYC and from critically-acclaimed playwright Bathsheba Doran, comes a new play heralded by the New York Times as, “Perfectly wonderful! Among the season’s finest plays.” Deep in the American South, Charlotte and Jonny have been best friends since they were nine. She’s Jewish, he’s Christian; he’s black, she’s white. Their differences intensify their connection, and they are now trying to determine whether their close friendship might be something more. When they discover exactly what “more” entails, sexual desire complicates everything in surprising, compulsive ways, as it comes as a surprise to them both — and to Charlotte’s parents, who are holding secrets and resentments of their own. An unexpected love story about where souls meet and the consequences of growing up, this compelling and spirited narrative of intricate relationships is an entertaining and explosive look at race, sexual identity, and family dynamics.

Please note that The Mystery of Love & Sex explores mature themes, contains adult language, and partial nudity. The Mystery of Love & Sex may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 16.

 

A New Brain

May 31, 2019 - Jun 9, 2019

From the Tony Award-winning authors of Falsettos, William Finn and James Lapine, with vocal arrangements by Tony Award-winning Jason Robert Brown, A New Brain is an energetic, sardonic, and often comical musical about unforeseen life events reminding us of who we are, what we’re made of, and who we hope to be. Gordon, a composer for a children’s TV show that features a human frog named Mr. Bungee, dreams of quitting his ‘talent killing’ job and writing Broadway’s next hit musical. At lunch, Gordon collapses into his meal and wakes up in the hospital, surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast boyfriend, his overbearing mother, a co-worker, and a team of medical professionals. Thought to have a tumor inside his brain, Gordon finds the courage to confront not only his mortality as he agrees to the necessary yet life-threatening surgery, but also the specter of Mr. Bungee and the music still left unwritten.   The story of A New Brain is drawn from Finn’s own life. Back in 1992, shortly after the successful opening of Falsettos on Broadway — the culmination of years of work — Finn suffered a brain seizure and was hospitalized. During this painfully difficult time, his doctors could not immediately pinpoint the cause of the seizure and were not sure if he would survive. Finn also feared that, even if he lived, he still might lose his ability to write. From such dire source material came this surprisingly joyous and funny musical.
