Overview


Exclusive Look:
Don't miss the inaugural production on Fayette Street!
"A tour de force debut for Baltimore's Everyman in its converted space...the large cast artfully slugs its way through the shock and muck of lies, booze, pills and toxic hookups in Letts's chronicle of an Oklahoma clan's spectacular flameout.  It's an exuberant, aggressive opening." — The Washington Post

"Superbly presented...the cast here is nothing short of spectacular. GIven its track record and the impressive way Everyman has opened its new home, we can only assume that the company has treasures in store for years to come.  Baltimore is lucky to have it." — City Paper

"The vibrant production provides a fitting display for the handsome new facility...Everyman delivers in a staging fluently directed by the company's founding artistic director, Vincent Lancisi." — The Baltimore Sun

"Five stars!  Broadway has come home to Baltimore as Everyman Theatre opens its doors at its brand new home...this production brings a touch of a New York City evening to Charm City with its extravagant set, sensational actors, and marvelous new home." — DC Metro Theater Arts

"A gorgeous new space deserves an equally stunning production.  Everyman Theatre has pulled off this challenging feat with its sparkling renovation of the Old Town movie palace and its shattering and laugh-out-loud staging of playwright Tracy Letts' mama drama August: Osage County...highly recommended!" — DC Theatre Scene

"A fitting and triumphant inauguration of the company's new Fayette Street stage...a riveting, thought-provoking ride." — MD Theatre Guide


One of the most critically acclaimed and gripping dramas in recent history. Featuring an all-star cast of your favorite Resident Company Members – welcome to August: Osage County. When the patriarch of the Weston Family vanishes one hot summer night, the acid-tongued, pill-popping mother summons her grown daughters and their families to reunite at the Oklahoma homestead.
