Everyman Theatre announces 2024/25 season

Six-show lineup ranges from inventive new works to modern masterpieces and is filled with laugh-out-loud comedies, inspiring tales of discovery, a best-selling mystery, and award-winning landmarks of contemporary theater.

Everyman Theatre is thrilled to announce its 2024/2025 season, a dynamic six-show lineup that ranges from inventive new works to modern masterpieces and is filled with laugh-out-loud comedies, inspiring tales of discovery, a best-selling mystery, and award-winning landmarks of contemporary theater. The organization’s 34th season is set to be a spectacular showcase of dramatic artistry that captures the essence of life’s diversity and takes the audience on an unforgettable journey.

“When curating this wide-ranging lineup of plays for the 2024/25 season, I found an exciting combination of great plays and playwrights that we feel embody Everyman’s mission and artistic spirit,” states Founder and Artistic Director Vincent M. Lancisi. “These plays, chosen for their diversity in style and subject matter, all contain exceptional storytelling and artistic merit. They reflect our commitment to producing thought-provoking and entertaining theater that strikes a chord with the Everyman among us.”

Everyman’s 2024/2025 season opens with a provocative and hilarious political satire POTUS: or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive by Selina Fillinger (September 1 – 29). Bringing some levity during an election year, this riotous comedy tells the tale of a group of brilliant and brazen women who must save a bumbling President and the world from falling apart. Laugh along as these seven women, whom the commander-in-chief relies upon most, risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep him out of trouble! This Broadway hit will be directed by Laura Kepley (The Book Club Play, Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery).

Next is Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains by Caleen Sinnette Jennings (October 20 – November 17). After a successful 2019 run of Queens Girl in the World and Queens Girl in Africa in repertory, Everyman commissioned Jennings to write this next installment which originally premiered at Everyman’s New Voices Festival in March 2020 for just a few performances before the global shutdown began. Despite its short-lived presence, however, the play’s impact resonated with audiences and patrons have been talking about it ever since. Everyman is excited to produce the play anew, this time on the main stage. Through poetry, music, dance, and an inspiring story of self-discovery, this one-woman show follows the story of Jacqueline Marie Butler’s college years amidst the raging Vietnam War and the Kent State shootings. It will be directed by Danielle Drakes.

No holiday season would be complete without a murder mystery on the Everyman Theatre stage, and this year offers a stage adaptation of one of the most famous crime stories of all time from the queen of crime herself! And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie (December 1 – January 5) is a classic narrative of deceit that masterfully weaves suspense, suspicion, and intrigue as ten strangers are lured by an unknown host, who knows all their secrets, to a mansion on a secluded island. With no way to escape and a killer among them, tension rises as they attempt to uncover the identity of the murderer before none are left to tell the tale. It will be directed by Associate Artistic Director, Noah Himmelstein (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Skin of our Teeth). 

The season continues in February with an inventive and touching new play, Primary Trust by Eboni Booth (February 2 – March 2). Recognized as a New York Times Critic’s Pick in 2023, this play tells the story of Kenneth, a shy and gentle man who is forced to rejoin society after being fired from his bookstore job. With the help of his best friend Bert and a few new friends he meets along the way, he slowly finds the courage to overcome his grief and find joy in new beginnings. It will be directed by Reginald L. Douglas (Crumbs from the Table of Joy, Berta, Berta).

Leaning into the acting strength of its accomplished Resident Company members, Everyman will produce the ambitious Tony Award-winning modern masterpiece, Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (March 23 – April 20). Directed by Founder and Artistic Director, Vincent M. Lancisi (Dial M for Murder, The Lion in Winter, The Sound Inside), this classic play presents two American couples who engage in a game of mental chess as an evening of shared drinks slowly devolves into marital warfare that reveals the reality lurking beneath the surface of their shattering marriage. With its blend of explosive comedy and harrowing drama, this masterfully written, Pulitzer Prize-nominated play bursts with depth, tension, and wit.

Closing out the season is a laugh-out-loud farce The Mystery of Irma Vep – A Penny Dreadful by Charles Ludlam (May 18 – June 22). Gothic melodrama gets a high-camp celebration in this classic comedy filled with murder and mayhem. Two actors play 8 roles with 30+ costume changes in a side-splittingly funny quick-change marathon that moves at breakneck speed. Ludlam’s horror spoof sends these actors on a tour de force full of werewolves, mummies, and a scary amount of laughter. It will be directed by Joseph W. Ritsch (The Importance of Being Earnest).

Additional Programming at Everyman Theatre Next Season

As a special summer treat, the theatre will offer a special concert for Everyman: Baltimore, Broadway, and Beyond with Felicia Curry.

All subscribers have security in ticket exchanges and our Flex Subscription provides the option to save now and decide the day you want to come later.” states Managing Director, Marissa LaRose. “Our Childcare Matinees provide childcare at the theatre so parents can enjoy a child-free performance and our weekday matinee provides downtown workers a chance to enjoy a performance with colleagues during a long lunch break. In our commitment to access, we are also doubling our Pay-What-You-Choose seats to every performance and of course maintaining our student discounts. There are so many ways to join us!”

Earlier Start Times and Even More Accessibility Options 

Beginning with the summer concert Everyman will offer earlier performance times throughout the 2024/2025 season: All regular-scheduled matinee performances will begin at 1:00 PM and all evening performances will begin at 7 PM. When possible, the Theatre will offer an extra weekday blended matinee at 12 PM to accommodate student groups as well as patrons who enjoy coming for an extended lunch break. (These will be in addition to Everyman’s existing education-based high-school performances.) This shift to earlier start times is designed to offer more opportunities for patrons to enjoy live theatre with colleagues, social clubs, friends, family, or student groups during the week.

The Theatre is also increasing its commitment to making the theater accessible for all by doubling the number of Pay-What-You-Choose seats available at each performance. This popular initiative, which began in 2022, enables patrons to see a show for as little as $1. In a theater that is known for providing an intimate experience with unobstructed views and plenty of leg room, with “no bad seat in the house,” this program removes barriers and enables Everyman to share the joys of theater with as many people as possible. The popular Sunday Childcare Matinee will also continue with the added ability to pre-purchase seats for the whole season and register kids (ages 3-12) for fun and educational childcare programming during performances.

Box office subscription hours are Tuesday – Friday 11AM-3PM, Saturdays from 11AM-3PM, and closed on Sundays and Mondays. Single tickets for the season will go on sale this summer.
