Announcing Our 2014-2015 Season

Your wish is granted!

CenterStage has made it our mission to bring you the hottest new plays from the world's most talented young and established writers. In recent seasons, audiences have witnessed the early development of plays like Handle with Care, Imaging Madoff and My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding before they went on to success Off-Broadway and in regional theaters. CenterStage also presented the stage versions of August: Osage County, The Normal Heart and The Last Five Years before they became major motion pictures. For our 38th Season, we are working directly with the authors of several new works to bring you Regional and World Premiere productions that continue to make us a destination theatre for audiences and playwrights.

Bad Jews

A Comedy by Joshua Harmon

"Crackles with energy. The best comedy of the season." - NY Times

Things get personal when three cousins ignite a viciously hilarious brawl over who "deserves" a treasured family heirloom. A no-holds-barred, dark comedy about family, faith and survival, JCC CenterStage is the first theatre in the country to nab this acclaimed Off-Broadway hit.


December 18 - 21, 2014

Naked In Encino

A World Premiere Comedy by Wendy Kout

Naked truths...and more...are exposed when five women of diversely different backgrounds gather for a self-help seminar. This laugh-out-loud comedy from the award-winning screenwriter of the film "Dorfman in Love" and the creator of the TV series "Anything But Love," makes its official world premiere at JCC CenterStage after an acclaimed developmental production in Denver.

The Hit Factory

A look back at the "Brill Building Sound"

In the 1950s and 60s, at NYC’s legendary Brill Building, you could write a song, sell a song, record a song and publish a song…sometimes in the same day. Producers like Don Kirshner and Phil Spector and songwriters like Carole King, Neil Sedaka and Leiber and Stoller dominated the airwaves with chart-topping hits for The Shirelles, Coasters, Drifters, Righteous Brothers, Bobby Darin, Connie Francis, Lesley Gore, Little Eva, Fabian, The Shangri-las, Ben E. King, Dionne Warwick and many more.

Featuring over three dozen enduring tunes, this all-new musical, from the creators of last season’s Burt Bacharach show, revisits the legacy of the time and place known as The Hit Factory.

Our Suburb

by Darrah Cloud

It's Our Town...only wilder!

New York Premiere

"A fresh take on a beloved classic. This beautiful, brand-new play is so full of honest human heart, humor, hurt, and hope that it is destined to become a classic." DCMetroTheaterArts

This whimsically innovative reinterpretation of Thorton Wilder's Our Town moves the action from fictional Grover's Corners to the very real Skokie, Illinois in 1977. As neighboring families prepare for Christmas and Hanukkah, two teenagers fall in love, and the world is about to give everyone a serious dose of reality.

Into the Woods

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by James Lapine

Be careful what you wish for...

Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel are just a few of your favorite storybook characters that collide in one epic adventure. Wishes will be granted, but when there are witches and giants about, "happily ever after" is not always the end of the story. Delightfully humorous and beautifully poignant, this Sondheim masterpiece is not a kids’ story, but an entertaining look at the consequences of "I wish."
