Now in its twenty-second season, Metropolitan Playhouse is devoted to the exploring and enriching America's theatrical legacy and the discovery of that tradition's place in world theater. Metropolitan focuses on three types of production: forgotten American masterpieces like Inheritors, The Scarecrow, The Melting Pot, and past seasons'
Metamora, The City, Fashion, Sun-Up, The Faith Healer, The Woman, The Easiest Way, Whatever Happened to Jones, and The Streets of New York; new plays based on America's history and literature, such as the East Village Chronicles, Salem, The O. Henry Conspiracy, Washington Irving's Sketchbook, and History Lessons; and works from around the world that put these American works in context, such as Arden of Faversham, Bacchus, Oedipus Rex and Dom Juan.
