The Powerhouse Theater at Vassar College will start it's 33rd Season in June. This year will bring some exciting new projects, including a play by "How I Met Your Mother" star Josh Radnor.

The Powerhouse Theater is a place for top notch playwrights, directors and actors to come and flesh out new ideas. So many big names love it because they can come to Poughkeepsie and work on an idea or production, without being bothered by the New York or L.A. press.


You have probably heard this before, but the hit musical "Hamilton" got it's start at Powerhouse in Poughkeepsie. The freedom it gives artists to "sculpt" on stage is what draw so many big names to the Powerhouse stage on the Vassar campus.

Josh Radnor will be presenting his play called “Sacred Valley” this season. Radnor has worked with Powerhouse a number of times. His play was part of last year's reading series, but this year it is going to the main stage.

It will be interesting to see what becomes of this and all of the other productions coming here. The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that the season opens on June 23rd and runs through July 30th.

New works by Tony winners Duncan Sheik and Lisa Kron; and Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage will also be featured among the offerings.

Maybe you'll see the next Broadway smash before anyone else knows about it. Get the full schedule at
