  • The Untranslatable Secrets of Nikki Corona

    The Untranslatable Secrets of Nikki Corona

    Written by José Rivera
    Directed by Jo Bonney

    The Untranslatable Secrets of Nikki Corona earns points for imaginative audacity… blending the real with the surreal.” – Los Angeles Times

    A Better Orpheus Inc. provides an unusual service—one that allows the living to communicate with the dead. When Nikki Corona loses her twin sister, A Better Orpheus puts her in touch with Orlando, a man dying too young. The ensuing love story leads to a journey through a vivid, surprising afterlife. In the rich literary tradition of magical realism and inspired by Dante's Inferno comes the world premiere of a new play by Obie Award-winning playwright and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter José Rivera.

  • Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

    Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

    Adapted by Jefferson Mays, Susan Lyons & Michael Arden

    Tony Award-winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife) brings new life to the greatest ghost story ever told. While the heart of A Christmas Carol is evergreen, Mays' fresh perspective on Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the rest will create a wildly theatrical and original experience. With a world premiere adaptation based on a version Dickens performed throughout his life, the holidays come early to the Geffen this year.
