Performing and attending theater plays is a ritual that dates back centuries. Plays, which are specifically non-musical, usually consist of dialogue between characters acted out on stage, rather than a simple reading of a story. They are intended to be experienced rather than read.
Plays span a variety of genres, including comedy, farce, satirical, epic, tragedy, romance, historical, and sometimes a mixture of several. There are also several different "levels" of plays, spanning from Broadway, Off-Broadway and West End shows to regional, community, university, and even primary school theater.
Some of the most popular plays continue to be performed and enjoyed again and again. These include numerous Shakespeare plays, such as A Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo and Juliet; A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry; Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller; The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde; Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett; and A Streetcard Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. Often, these shows are revived anywhere from local playhouses to the Broadway stage.
Whether it's a local production or an evening on Broadway you're after, there are plenty of plays to keep you entertained. Yearning for something moving? Get Disgraced tickets.
