It’s a season of Pulitzers at the Hamptons’ leading summer theater company in Sag Harbor. Five Pulitzer Prize winners are featured on the creative teams behind the first two summer of ’17 shows.

“The Man in the Ceiling A musical making its world premiere through June 25 is based on a novel by Jules Feiffer, Pulitzer-winning cartoonist. The semi-autobiographical story of a boy who loves to draw is directed by Jeffrey Seller, who won Pulitzers as producer for “Rent” and “Hamilton.”

“Intimate Apparel” July 4-30. Lynn Nottage is the only woman to win two Pulitzers for drama, including “Sweat,” now on Broadway. Her other prize was for “Ruined” in 2009. Like most of her work, “Intimate Apparel” focuses on women of African descent, in this case a seamstress who designs high-fashion lingerie. Bay Street’s season finale is:

“As You Like It” Aug. 8-Sept. 3, by William Shakespeare, who wrote it about three centuries before there was a Pulitzer.


“Angry Young Man The John Drew Theater’s co-production with Urban Stages of an American premiere continues through June 18. This unlikely subject for a farce tells the madcap story of a Muslim surgeon who moves to London only to encounter stereotypical assumptions wherever he turns.

Finally, enjoy free outdoor Shakespeare as New York’s Hip to Hip troupe performs “Henry IV, Part 1” and “Measure for Measure” at Southampton’s Agawam Park, Aug. 18-19. Indoors, across the street at the Southampton Arts Center, see “The 39 Steps” Hitchcock farce, July 15-30.
