Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this is the play that revolutionized the modern stage and is generally considered to be Williams’ masterpiece. Clinging desperately to a masquerade of Southern grace, Blanche DuBois moves into her sister’s cramped apartment, creating all the wrong kinds of sparks with her crude brother-in-law. Dark truths about Blanche’s past collide with the stark reality of the present, leading to a downward spiral of domestic violence and madness.

Winner of the Tony Award and one of Broadway’s longest-running plays in its original run, I’m Not Rappaport is set under a bridge in Central Park, where two octogenarians regularly meet. Nat is a cantankerous Communist whose daughter is urging him into the old folk’s home. Midge, an apartment superintendent, spends his days in the park hiding from his disgruntled tenants.

Great actors.  Smart plays.

The Actors Theatre brings professional drama to Kansas City, in a vibrant presentation for the virtual age.

The Theatre, formed by a veteran collective of artists, reimagines modern classics, sometimes in settings across the city. A war story at the National WWI Museum … a meditation on death at the Muehlebach Funeral Home.  For our 12th Season, however, all performances will be held in H&R Block City Stage at Union Station!

Regardless of location, each production is an experience, bringing the actors and their words into focus. Nearly all income goes to pay the best local actors, designers and technicians, so that the art of theatre can flourish in Kansas City.
