1. Chimerica
Quantum Theatre
Thursday, December 2, 2021

This powerful award-winning play reminds us of an image that arrested the world: a protester facing down four tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Who was he, and who was the photojournalist who captured it? From there to the fraught present of US/China relations, it examines capitalism and culture, journalism and censorship.

Proof of vaccination required.

2. An Untitled New Play by Justin Timberlake - A Musical
City Theatre
Saturday, December 4, 2021
Event Start Time: 4:20 PM
Estimated End Time: 7:15 PM

An idealistic literary manager at a non-profit theater wants to change the world by discovering unsung writers and plays that matter, but her tone-deaf boss instead chooses a “pop superstar” to write the “hit” that will keep the theater from going out of business. A hilarious new musical about the battle of art versus commerce.

Proof of vaccination required.
