We believe that gathering together for great live theatre is life-changing.

Not only do our audiences have fun, but theatre enables us to practice empathy and understanding for experiences, cultures, and perspectives that may be vastly different from our own.

Theatre isn’t passive entertainment. When we leave the safety of our homes, interact with strangers sitting next to us, and turn off our phones, it is a powerful act of unity. Patrons of the theatre may not always agree with challenging works but do agree to consider them. In the spirit of that tradition, NextStop’s lineup of shows for July 2017 to June 2018 presents a “Point and Counterpoint” year of theatre.

Shows, in pairs, will explore opposing and seemingly incompatible sides of big issues and ideas:

  • Together, two shows will demonstrate theatre’s power of catharsis; first in expressing joy, then in expressing fear.
  • Together, two shows will examine the Presidency of the United States; the men who have held that office and those who have railed against them.
  • Together, two shows will explore faith; how the teachings and principles of God have both illuminated the very best of human nature and been used to justify the very worst.

We’re eager to use the power of theatre to break down walls and build the bonds of community.

We wager that you would enjoy all six of these shows on their own, but gathered with your friends and neighbors at NextStop, we’re certain you’ll agree that theatre is better when together.

Bad Jews

by Joshua Harmon

An equally hilarious and savage look at how sometimes family can be our greatest adversary and faith our most powerful weapon against them.

Presented in NextStop’s season as a counterpoint to Godspell, the riotously funny “Bad Jews” how faith can be used to justify the very worst in people.
The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a knock-down, drag-out war over a precious family heirloom that was protected through the Holocaust. In one corner is the volatile and self-righteous “Super Jew” Daphna Feygenbaum. In the other is her entitled and proudly-secular cousin Liam, with his “shiksa” girlfriend Melody in tow. Caught in the middle is Liam’s brother, Jonah, who wants nothing more than to be left out of it.

“Bad Jews” replaces “The Crucible” in NextStop’s season.
