God of Carnage
Yasmina Reza’s biting serio-comedy is about two sets of parents (one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park) who meet to discuss the matter in a civilized manner. As their meeting progresses, the parents become children themselves and the evening devolves into chaos. The Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck.

Jan. 26 – Feb. 4
Clever Little Lies
A mother always knows when something is wrong, and this mother is determined to find out the truth when her husband returns home from a tennis match with his son. Hell-bent on getting to the bottom of things, she invites her son and daughter-in-law for drinks, causing uproarious chaos. A shattering and hilarious play about long-term love and marriage… for better and for worse. The Ghent Playhouse.

Aunt Leaf/Tia Hoja
Inspired by American and Mexican folklore and a haunting Mary Oliver poem, Barbara Wiechmann’s play features acclaimed Mexican artist Indira Pensado as Storyteller, mixing English with Spanish, to tell a spine-tingling tale that asks audiences to decide what is real, and what is not. Ancram Opera House, 4 p.m.

Feb. 3 – Feb. 11
On the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of a week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration evolves into a powerful but complicated love story. With music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, this emotionally captivating musical is the only show to have music that won an Academy Award, a Grammy, a Tony and an Olivier Award. Warner Theatre, Torrington.
