Playhouse on the Square's New Works @The Works playwriting competition has resulted in some impressive debuts. The latest to see production is Crib, a 2016 winner opening at TheatreWork this weekend. Crib tells the story of Tracy, an African-American professor fighting for tenure, Rajon, a star athlete accused of plagiarism and threatened with expulsion, and of Coach Pari who reminds everybody that athletic money means more than academic honor.

Crib sounds like a timely pick and is directed by Jaclyn Suffel, who helmed a previous winner, Victory Blues.


Does that sound a little heavy? Theatre Memphis goes light in the summer with musical revues and cabarets. This year's event, Ladies & Legends brings together Annie Freres, Lynden Lewis Jones, Emily Chateau, and Jacqueline Skoog. That's a lot of vocal dynamite. They'll perform pop hits, Broadway favorites, and movie classics.
