More about the program
George Lam’s thrilling mystery Someone Anyone holds us breathless as we follow a prostitute held hostage by her client (pictured above, in a recent rehearsal with Bonnie Lander and Robert Maril), and Ryan Jesperson’s Orphée Redux beautifully re-imagines the Orpheus myth in 1980s New York.
