The slate of shows will open with the world premiere of Rivera’s “The Untranslatable Secrets of Nikki Corona,” about a woman who attempts to contact her recently deceased twin sister through a dying man. Other premieres on the lineup include Mitnick’s “Mysterious Circumstances,” about a Sherlock Holmes scholar who is mysteriously murdered (which Shakman will direct) and Craig-Galvan’s “Black Super Hero Magic Mama,” along with illusionist Helder Guimaraes’ “Invisible Tango” and  Tony winner Jefferson Mays’ new solo adaptation of “A Christmas Carol.” Bekah Brunstetter’s “The Cake” and Brian Dennehy in “Hughie” and “Krapp’s Last Tape” are also on the docket.
