On the Waterfront by Budd Schulberg with Stan Silverman
The stage version of Schulberg’s screenplay for the 1954 movie classic about union violence and corruption on the New York docks. There are many differences from the film that won 8 Academy awards, but all the vivid characters, speeches and drama remain, with some surprises in store for fans of Elia Kazan’s masterpiece.
Directed by Kathleen Akerley.
March 30–April 28, 2012

Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You by Christopher Durang
Helen Hayes-honored director Joe Banno makes his American Century Theater stage debut with playwright Christopher Durang’s first TACT appearance, a hard-nosed comedy that takes on religion, dogma, and the Catholic Church. The play stars celebrated DC actress Cam McGee as the formidable Sister Mary. Nunsense this is not.
Directed by Joe Banno.
June 8–July 7, 2012

Marathon ’33 by June Havoc
You will find yourself transported back to the 30’s of the Great Depression, a spectator at a dance marathon, as exhausted and jobless competitors literally dance for their lives. This was the acclaimed experimental play by actress/singer/dancer June Havoc, the real life “Baby June” of Gypsy, recreating her harrowing years as a marathon dancer. This theatrical tour de force combines music, dance, history and desperation in one of TACT’s most ambitious productions.
Directed by TACT Artistic Director Jack Marshall; Musical direction by Thomas Fuller.
