Everyman Theatre has been on a roll since the beginning of 2013, when the company inaugurated its inviting new downtown space. The first full season in that venue - there's one more play left, "Tribes," opening May 28 - has been marked by exceptionally effective stagings of diverse works (three were given extra weeks to meet demand). "That's why it took so long to come up with a second season," said Everyman's artistic director, Vincent Lancisi. "I really felt intimidated by the scope of this one. " What Lancisi devised for 2014-2015 is a promising mix of three Baltimore premieres and three vintage plays.
