The Mark of Kane

by Mark Pracht

Oct. 21 - Dec. 4, 2022

(Previews Oct. 21 - 29)




In 1939, two young friends huddled in a Bronx apartment and created a legend. A hero who represents an enduring chapter in the tale of the American comic book. One, Bob Kane, would profit from that legend for years to come, and the other would be all but forgotten. This is the legacy of the mark of Kane. City Lit Theatre brings a three-year world premiere of "The Four-Color Trilogy" to their stage.  The Mark of Kane begins a three-year world premiere of “The Four-Color Trilogy,” highlighting major turning points in American comic book history

The Birthday Party

by Harold Pinter

Jan. 14 - Feb. 26, 2023

(Previews Jan. 14 - 21)



A comedy of menace. Stanley may or may not play the piano, and today may or may not be his birthday, and he may or may not be hiding from someone in Meg's boarding house where he's lived for a year.  But he's definitely made nervous by news that two new boarders are about to arrive, and she's definitely throwing him a party.

Aztec Human Sacrifice

Music & Lyrics by Kingsley Day

Book & Lyrics by Kingsley Day and Philip LaZebnik

May 5 - June 18, 2023

(Previews May 5 - 13)

It’s the night before the beginning of the Aztec empire’s new millennium, and the Chosen One – so named because he is to be sacrificed in order to make the sun rise next morning -  has run off with the Emperor’s daughter.  If he is not found, the sun will not rise and the world will end.  By the writer of the legendary Chicago musical comedy Summer Stock Murder.
