Admissions New York TicketsThe 2018 play Admissions by Joshua Harmon is a nuanced portrayal of privilege, power, education and who has access to it. At the beginning of the story, admissions officer Sherri Rosen-Mason and her husband Bill Mason have successfully fought to diversify the student body at their local New England prep school. However, when her son applies for a spot in an Ivy League university, her own commitment to openness and diversity at all costs is severely tested. Audiences in New York can catch a live showing of Joshua Harmon’s play on the stage.
The Price of AdmissionsAdmissions is the third major work of American playwright Joshua Harmon. His first two plays were both produced by the off-Broadway Roundabout Theatre Company. The 2012 play Bad Jews, which deals with issues of faith, family and legacy, earned nominations from the Outer Critics Circle and the Lucille Lortel Awards. It was the third most-produced US play of the season. His second play, the 2015 romantic comedy Significant Other, made it all the way to Broadway’s Booth Theatre. Following this success, Joshua Harmon began writing his third play, Admissions, immediately afterward. However, the effects of the 2016 elections added to the salience of his themes. During production, Admissions received the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award, which offers financial support for promising new shows. With the grant money from the award, Harmon was able to schedule an additional week of rehearsal time to work with the actors on the complexity of the dialogue and speeches. Admissions opened for previews off-Broadway at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater on Feb. 15, 2018 (with an official opening of March 12) and ran until April 29. The Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater is located at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the home of the Metropolitan Opera and New York City Ballet. Daniel Aukin served as the director of the opening show. During award season, Admissions won both the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New off-Broadway Play. Due to its success at the Lincoln Center, Admissions has been staged outside of New York. In 2019, the play came to West End theaters (including the London Trafalgar Studios, the Cambridge Arts Theatre and more) with a cast of Alex Kingston and Sarah Hadland. It has also been the subject of several regional productions in the United States.
