King Philippe V of Spain, plagued by insomnia, lies awake in his chamber. The Queen, desperate for a cure, hears of Farinelli —a castrato with a voice so divine it has the power to captivate all who hear it. Philippe is astonished when Farinelli sings, and begs him to stay. But will Farinelli, one of the greatest celebrities of his time, choose a life of solitude over fame and fortune in the opera houses of Europe?
EDWARD ALBEE'S AT HOME IN THE ZOO: HOMELIFE & THE ZOO STORY
Off-Broadway: The Pershing Square Signature Center/Irene Diamond Stage
Written by Edward Albee
Directed by Lila Neugebauer
Cast includes: Katie Finneran, Robert Sean Leonard, and Paul Sparks
In act one, Homelife, we meet Peter and his wife, who live a comfortable but vaguely unhappy bourgeois existence; in the second act, the classic The Zoo Story, Peter is forever altered by an oddly persistent stranger in Central Park. With jolts of brutality and Albee’s signature dark humor, this seminal play explores both the love and the cruelty that we inflict on each other every day.

An intrepid troupe of pageant players races across medieval Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death.
