This Year is Different

The hard truth is, the impact of the unending shutdown of live theatre, and its mounting collateral damage, has been profound.  Now more than ever, American Stage depends on your support.

Why Give Now?

This year, please consider investing in American Stage. Together we can reimagine, and we can recover. Because when we come together and share stories representing our diverse perspectives and experiences, we expand our world, our differences cease to divide us and we become united through the shared experience of what it is to be human. Thank you for believing in the power of live theatre to help to heal our community.

“The country needs to be healed — it’s not going to be healed from the top, politically. How are we going to heal? Art is the healing force.”

-Robert Redford, 2012

Holiday Classic coming Dec. 18-27

    THE ROYALE by Marco Ramirez
    A Tampa Bay Area Premiere
    September 20 – October 15, 2017

    WE THE PEOPLE…WILL FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE
    Charismatic African-American boxer Jay “The Sport” Jackson has a burning desire to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905, and in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as being knocked out. When a crooked boxing promoter hatches a plan for “the fight of the century,” “The Sport” just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion. This stylized and stunning play about the life of an outsider in American culture explores one man’s struggle while reflecting a much broader one.
