DRY POWDER is the viciously, deliciously funny new drama about the people shaping, and skewing, the American economy.

The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick (Hank Azaria) threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth (John Krasinski), one of Rick’s partners, has a win-win deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song and rescue his boss from a PR disaster. But Jenny (Claire Danes), Seth’s counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the company, no matter the consequences. The game is on in Sarah Burgess’ gripping, razor-sharp new play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done. Thomas Kail (HamiltonIn the HeightsLombardi) directs.

Audience Conversations
These Audience Conversations will be a new form of post-show interaction modeled on the work of Harvard Professor Michael Sandel. We will pose a big question around the themes and meanings within the work, and then invite our audience to engage with a moderator—and with each other—in pursuit of deeper answers. 

Audience Conversations scheduled for DRY POWDER will be held after the evening performances on Tuesday, April 5th and Saturday, April 9th
