Center Theatre Group’s 49th Season Announces Five Plays

Five plays have been announced for the Center Theatre Group’s 49th season at the Mark Taper Forum: “The Mystery of Love & Sex,” “Father Comes Home From The Wars (Parts 1, 2, & 3),” “Disgraced,” “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” and “The Beauty Queen of Leenane.”

“These playwrights are exploring what it means to be part of a culture, a community and a family,” CTG’s artistic director, Michael Ritchie said. “Their characters are confronted with decisions that will challenge and ultimately define them.”

The new season begins on Feb. 10 and runs through Dec. 18, 2016.

“I love those moments in the theatre that are just pure entertainment,” Ritchie said. “This new season as those but we are offering more. These plays will grab you and shake you and make you feel. It is not a mellow season. It is a bold season full of theatricality, lyricism, laughter and deep truths that depict social and historical upheavals, cultural and familial confrontations and the fascinating complexities of the human condition.”
