Feb. 23-March 5 – Civic Center Music Hall

From What will endure when the cataclysm arrives – when the grid falls, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding? Anne Washburn’s imaginative dark comedy, one of the most produced new plays in American theatre, propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilizations stumbling into its future. A paean to live theater, and to the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another. Shows run from Feb. 23 to March 5 at varying times. For tickets, visit
