WELCOME TO SUMMER 2018 Welcome to Summer 2018 at Bay Street! We invite you to get closer to great actors and singers, to vivid plays and musicals about giants in politics and the arts, and to exceptional storytelling. From our Mainstage season to Music Mondays concerts, from comedians to our final Gala ever on the Wharf in Sag Harbor, from a provocative one man play for adults to great puppet shows and camps for kids and teens, Bay Street has something for everyone. We hope you’ll join us all summer long and get closer to the extraordinary experiences you can only get from live entertainment in the heart of one of the most beautiful villages in the Hamptons!

Even the mightiest stars must fall. Set during Hollywood’s notorious blacklist period, Fellow Travelers explores the complicated relationship between three American icons: director Elia Kazan, writer Arthur Miller, and actress Marilyn Monroe. Look behind the glitter and glamour of the Silver Screen and Broadway to see how the politics of the McCarthy era affected their friendship, and how their friendship affected their work in this intimate and passionate world premiere.

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.”
