The Dance and the Railroad makes use of Chinese opera aesthetics to portray the struggles of early Chinese-American immigrants working on the transcontinental railroad in the midst of a strike. A Japanese ghost story inspired by Noh theater, The Sound of a Voice is an eerily beautiful play about the desire and desperation of two opposites: a samurai and a mysterious, reclusive woman.

Terrence McNally’s award-winning play is based on the legendary series of master classes given by opera diva Maria Callas at Juilliard. Alternately dismayed and impressed by her students, Callas retreats into recollections of her own life and career; from her early “ugly duckling” years, her fierce hatred of her rivals, the unforgiving press, her triumphs at La Scala, her affair with Aristotle Onassis, and ultimately she bares the sacrifice taken in the name of art.

Handsome traveler Hal agrees to accompany shy Millie to the Labor Day picnic, but his real attraction is for her gorgeous and alluring sister, Madge.

A depressed, conversation-phobic man is taken to a boarding home in Georgia. Far from his comfortable yet unfulfilled existence in Britain, he pretends to be a “foreigner” to avoid discourse with the boarders. This only intrigues them, and soon everyone in the house wants to talk to him. In the process, he is forced to make up an entire gibberish language, foil a devilish plot and discover who he truly is.

When young Catherine Donahue takes a full-time job her husband warns her, “Work can cost you something.” But at the Radium Dial Company she finds new friends and new strength that serve her well when it comes time to pay the price. Melanie Marnich’s work of creative nonfiction weaves together actual events and vivid characters to look at the ways we define ourselves by our work.

At Buffalo: the musical
Dec. 6, 7:30 p.m.; Dec. 7, 7:30 p.m.
Atlas Black Box
Tickets start at $12
Race was on display at the 1901 Buffalo, N.Y., World’s Fair. In exhibits such as Darkest Africa, Old Plantation and The American Negro Exhibit, showmen presented unique, often conflicting visions of blackness in America at the turn of the 20th century. The fair left behind a fragmented archive of descriptions, newspaper articles, photographs and film clips that sheds new light on a critical moment in the construction of race and American identity. At Buffalo, a new musical in development, brings this archive to life.
