“A raucous combination political cartoon, rock concert and extended ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch.”

Andrew Jackson is mad as hell and he’s not going to take it anymore! This emo-rock musical reinvents the seventh president and the guy whose face you know from the 20 dollar bill as a complete rock star. Winner of the 2010 Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical, this angsty Wild-west-rock-fest will have you singing with the rebellion!

February 7 – March 3

“Glass may break, candles may go out, but The Glass Menagerie endures. Unarguably one of the greatest American plays ever written.”
Broadway Magazine

The Glass Menagerie is an American masterpiece that announced the presence of one of the greatest dramatists of the 20th Century. Williams’ semi-autobiographical heartbreaking yet often humorous memory play about a young struggling poet and his tenuous reationships with his overbearing mother and his fragile sister is an emotionally charged portrait of hope in 1930s St. Louis that is timeless in its ability to capture the imagination and hearts of audiences.

 

April 4–28

“Finally Heard brings drmatic life to a little-known chapter of the War Between the States.”
Baltimore Sun

Sixteen years ago Maryland Ensemble Theatre mounted its first mainstage production, an original world premiere production about the real lives of six extraordinary women who lived during the Civil War. On the 150th Anniversary of the bloodiest conflict in our nation’s history, a war that pitted brother against brother, MET is thrilled to bring new life to its first ever production that gives voice to little known stories of these miraculous women. The original script was written in 1997 by Angela D’Ambrosia, Sophie Arrick, Meg Coyle-Stanford, Gené Fouché, Rona Mensah and Wanda Schell..
