American Hero
Through October 15

Bess Wohl’s provocative new comedy takes place at a newly-franchised sub shop at the local mall. Three up-and-coming sandwich artists – a teenager, a single mom and a downsized corporate banker – are perfecting the mustard-to-cheese ratio according to the company manual. When their shot at the American dream is interrupted by a series of peculiar events, they become unlikely allies in a post-recession world. Even as corporate America gives up on them, they band together to prove that heroes aren’t born, they’re made – fresh to order on your choice of bread.

The Secret Garden
November 3-December 24

New Village Arts brings a beloved story to life with the musical The Secret Garden. This enchanting tale is directed by Rosina Reynolds and celebrates the power of family – both the one children are born into and the one individuals make for themselves. It’s a redemptive story of a young girl finding her voice and the adults around her discovering bravery to let go of the past. This Tony-winning musical is sure to delight audiences of all ages during the holidays.
