IN-PERSON SUMMER SEASON
Joe Iconis + Lauren Marcus, with other special guests!
Two River opens its Plaza Players Series with Tony-Nominated writer and composer Joe Iconis (Be More Chill, Love in Hate Nation). Joined by Lauren Marcus and other special guests, Iconis will rock Red Bank into Summer.
Real People Things
In Real People Things, we eavesdrop on the intimate conversations between Rosie Peters and Theo Goldberg as they get to know each other through pixels and wires and spotty wifi all leading up to the moment when they have to decide to put down their phones and meet in person.
ToyBox Live with Rinde Eckert
Rinde Eckert (Pericles) returns to Two River with his eclectic collection of instruments to share a selection of songs, readings, monologues, and unexpected imaginings.
Alea and Sinuhé
A high-energy performance that traces the musical heritage of many Latin American countries and walks the line between cumbia, vallenato, ranchera, jazz, and pop.
Upstream By Chesney Snow and Faye Chiao
Upstream fuses piano, beatboxing, spoken word, and soaring vocals to weave a magical musical journey of songs in this Plaza Players performance featuring Chesney Snow (OO-BLA-DEE) with musician/composer Faye Chiao.
Hasan Minhaj - Experiment Time
Comedian Hasan Minhaj (Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King, Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, the Daily Show) showcases and prepares new material for his new one man show in an intimate setting.
Tiny Shakes: Romeo and Juliet
Tiny Shakes brings high school students together with a professional design team, with students performing and supporting the production behind the scenes to create a theatrical video collage. Stream these 24 videos that make up the performance all at once, or a few at a time! Available through June 30/2021.
Opening Act Summer Program
A series of week-long programs for grades 9-12! Learn a fun and challenging song and dance number with professional artists, to perform that Friday as the Opening Act for Two River's Plaza Players outdoor performance.
We believe that the essence of theater is democratic: it invites us to encounter, consider and perhaps adopt other points of view, if only for a brief time in a darkened theater. We aspire to build an environment in which artists, audiences, employees, and Board members from different backgrounds and experiences together form an institution that is equitable, diverse, and inclusive.
