Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at Nationals in Tampa Bay. A play about ambition, growing up, and how to find our souls in the heat of it all.
“It’s a brave, visceral, excitingly off-kilter barbaric yawp of a play. And it gets at something excruciatingly tender: the burden of modesty on young American women.” – New York Magazine
The Inheritance, Part 1
By Matthew Lopez
May 12 – June 20 | Levin Stage
Decades after the AIDS epidemic, three generations of gay men grapple with the tragedy of their past and what it means for their future. Eric is a New York City lawyer trying to keep his family’s apartment; his husband, Toby, is a successful but abrasive writer, living in a state of denial. And their marriage is hanging by a thread. From there, a web of hilarious and heartbreaking stories unfolds, remembering the dead and calling on the living to keep looking forward. Inspired by E.M. Forster’s Howards End, THE INHERITANCE is an epic examination of survival, healing, class divide, and what it means to call a place home.
“…[an] openhearted American theatrical epic… Capaciously moving… [THE INHERITANCE] burns with an abiding anger at a generation of gay men felled by AIDS and the heedless attitudes that followed in certain quarters. And yet the play finds a curative potency in a breadth of feeling that hits a playgoer in the gut.” — NY Times
