2018 MAINSTAGE SEASON
June 26 - July 22 A play by Peter
Morgan Directed by Sarna Lapine
The explosive political exposé from the creator of The Crown. This acclaimed play brings you inside the landmark series of interviews between David Frost and former President Nixon that occurred three years after he resigned. With the greatest political scandal in modern history far from forgotten and many of the nation’s questions left unanswered, what ensues is a battle of wits that pits an ambitious journalist against one of America’s most controversial presidents. Frost/Nixon is a riveting story of the collision of politics and the media.

Rice Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber Originally Directed by Harold Prince Directed by Will Pomerantz Power and politics. With star quality. From poverty to stardom to political dominance, Evita follows the life of Eva Perón and her ascent to the top as the First Lady of Argentina. Bay Street will offer its signature treatment of a large-scale musical: a visceral experience in a thrust theater that allows the viewer to get close to the iconic characters and Perón’s infamous rise to power. The beloved score includes the songs “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina,” “Buenos Aires” and “Another Suitcase in Another Hall.”
