Concluding April 1

An Iliad (Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop). "A sprawling yarn based on Homer's epic poem, An Iliad spins the familiar tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles told through an original and immediate voice," according to NYTW. "Tony Award-winning actors Denis O'Hare and Stephen Spinella will alternate as performers in this account of humanity's unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War?" Visit NYTW.

Pipe Dream (Off-Broadway at New York City Center). The New York City Center Encores! production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Pipe Dream stars Tony winner Leslie Uggams, Will Chase and Laura Osnes. Based on the novels "Cannery Row" and "Sweet Thursday" by John Steinbeck, Pipe Dream features music by Richard Rodgers and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. The score includes the rarities "All at Once You Love Her," "The Next Time It Happens" and the ballad "Everybody's Got a Home but Me." Visit NYCityCenter.

Teresa's Ecstasy (Off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre). According to press notes, "Carlotta's return to Barcelona has two purposes. It's a stopover on the way to Avila, where she is researching an article on St. Teresa, a 16th Century nun. It's also to serve her husband Andres with divorce papers. Over a sumptuous lunch of wine and gazpacho, Andres fights to rekindle their relationship. But Carlotta is on a quest for the divine, and in the process of discovering the mystical Teresa's Ecstasy, she discovers herself. Teresa's Ecstasy is a sexually charged look at politics, religion and ultimately love." Visit Theresa'sEcstasy.
