by Peter Shaffer
His legacy threatened, composer Antonio Salieri schemes to discredit a foul-mouthed former child prodigy. But genius, it seems, is not easily obscured, and Salieri must ask himself how far he will go to destroy the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Winner of five Tony Awards—including Best Play—and the Oscar for Best Picture, Amadeus is a modern classic, weaving intrigue, comedy, suspense, and music into a tale of breathtaking dramatic power.
WATER BY THE SPOONFUL
by Quiara Alegría Hudes
Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Elliot Ortiz is back from Iraq, working a Subway shop in Philly, and hoping to turn his winning smile into an acting career. Somewhere, four strangers in an internet chat room seek support facing their demons. When these real and virtual worlds collide, reality splinters, and life itself is at stake in this acclaimed, provocative, and unexpectedly humorous journey to redemption.
“Funny, warm, and uplifting—one of the best new plays in years.” – The Hartford Courant
PETER AND THE STARCATCHER
A play by Rick Elise based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, music by Wayne Barker
A wildly innovative, Tony Award-winning retelling of how an angst-ridden orphan became the immortal Peter Pan.

“Miraculous. Spectacle, wit and joy spill out of this production like treasure from a magic pocket.” – New York Magazine

The newest work by T2 Artistic Director Robert Ford (Look Away, The Spiritualist, My Father’s War) in its world premiere production.
RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN
by Gina Gionfriddo
Sparks fly in this “intensely smart, immensely funny” (The New York Times) 2013 Pulitzer Prize finalist about women who want to have it all. After grad school, Catherine built a career as a rock-star academic; Gwen built a life with her family. Decades later, a dangerous game begins as each tries to claim the other’s territory.
“An explosive comedy—engagingly up-to-the-minute with unexpected twists.” – The Washington Post
