"With this season we wanted to share stories that have stood the test of time," Public Theater Executive Artistic Director Claudia de Vasco said.
The Public Theater of San Antonio has announced the plays that will be featured during its upcoming 2023-2024 season
In the coming year, the theater will showcase musical adaptations of well-established stories.
“Myths and stories have been called our 'collective dreams' because there are narratives and tales that we see pop up again and again through time and among cultures, and in that commonality unify us in our human experience," Claudia de Vasco, the Public's executive artistic director, said in the theater's season announcement.
"With this season we wanted to share stories that have stood the test of time, as we continue to produce work that unifies San Antonio, through theatre of and by the people of our city.”
Planned productions include a jazz-funk musical version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night; A Xmas Cuentos Remix
, a modern retelling of Dickens' A Christmas Carol
with English and Spanish Christmas songs; and Once Upon a Mattress
, an adaptation of The Princess and The Pea
The theater will also host performances of Lynn Nottage's play Intimate Apparel
and Stephen Sater's musical Spring Awakening
Dates for the productions are still to be announced. More information can be found on the Public's website
