The Mystery of Edwin Drood

Book, Music and Lyrics by Rupert Holmes
Based on the unfinished novel by Charles Dickens
Directed by Steve Bell

BCP kicks off its 86th season with a brilliantly delightful musical whodunit incorporating a most unusual plot device: a "19th century Music Hall murder-mystery-set-within-a musical" in which you participate by identifying various mysterious characters and then actually vote on the murderer! You could come back and see eight performances and experience a different ending each time! Winner of 14 total Tony and Drama Desk Awards in 1986, including Best Musical, Drood is "one of the most inventive, inspired and rousing musicals ever devised." AM NEW YORK

September 8 – October 6, 2018
Fridays/Saturdays at 8pm
Sundays at 2pm
All performances $24

You Can't Take It with You

Written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
Directed by Lynne Lupfer

It's time to roar with laughter at this 1937 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy which features a daffy family whose passions include such mysterious oddities as pyrotechnics, snakes, ballet and dodging government authorities. Their 'conventional' daughter brings her boyfriend and his straight-laced parents home to meet her oddball family for the first time, but both she and her beau realize that the endearing eccentricities of her family and friends and their unquestioning love and support is their true happiness. "The only downside to this unconditional upper is that it may strain previously underused muscles around your mouth. That can happen when you spend twoand- a-half hours grinning like an idiot. A lot of shows can make you laugh. What's rare is a play that makes you beam from curtain to curtain." NY TIMES

October 20 – November 10, 2018
Fridays/Saturdays at 8pm
Sundays at 2pm
All performances $24

Book and Lyrics by Jim Eiler
Music by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy

Directed by Bill Kaufman

Fee. Fi. Fo. Fum. We smell another wonderful Prince Street Players' musical fairytale brought to life by BCP! Jack and his adventures in the sky are given a splendid spin in this family-friendly musical adaptation of the classic story, featuring one very scientifically-minded Giant who has invented a plucky Golden Harp and a tap dancing Golden Goose.Will your child (or grandchild) ages three through ten be able to figure out the mystery of this story? Whatever you do, don't spill the BEANS!

Church & State

Written by Jason Odell Williams
Directed by Carol Fisher

A fast-paced, seriously funny take on faith, politics, and "The Twitter". It's three days before Charlie Whitmore's Senate reelection, and he's decided to tell the public exactly what's on his mind, with no filter. What is he going to say, and what could possibly go wrong? Playwright Williams "avoids demonizing his conservative Southerners, who are winning, strikingly intelligent, and above all, sincere in their beliefs .... The moral struggle that follows fuels a sophisticated dialectic that presents both sides of the gun debate.... It's surprisingly subtle and gripping entertainment. Simply superb!" LA TIMES

January 12 – February 2, 2019
Fridays/Saturdays at 8pm ($21)
Sundays at 2pm ($17)

Veronica's Room

Written by Ira Levin
Directed by Ellyn Essig

In typical Ira Levin fashion (Rosemary's Baby, Deathtrap, The Stepford Wives, The Boys from Brazil), the plot features numerous twists and turns encircled by a sensation of supernatural mystery. False identities, time periods crossed, murder, incest, a woman driven toward insanity by others... if you're looking for creepy, you've found the right place! "Bring a seatbelt - the theatre doesn't provide them, and given the whirlwind you're sitting in, you might feel safer strapped in." BROADWAY WORLD

A Streetcar Named Desire

Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Jacqueline Poquette

In Tennessee Williams' most famous (and successful) play, faded Southern belle Blanche DuBois makes her way to New Orleans to stay with her sister and crass brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Why did she leave her mansion home back in Mississippi? Did she break the law? Cause a scandal? And which sister really causes Stanley to bellow the most famous single name ever heard on stage: "STELL-A!"? "The play is written with a triumphantly heightened naturalism, in which the rhythms and images of ordinary life are subtly combined and contrasted with a verselike elegance of phrase." THE NEW REPUBLIC

March 23 – April 13, 2019
Fridays/Saturdays at 8pm ($21)
Sundays at 2pm ($17)

Rumors

Written by Neil Simon
Directed by Peter Colletto

Neil Simon returned to laugh-out-loud comedy in this 1988 farce which finds us at a dinner party in which the first guests discover the hostess is missing and the host upstairs with a superficial gunshot wound. To prevent a scandal, the first couple hides this situation from the second, and they hide it from the third, all the way down the line. Filled with half-prepared meals, car accidents, marital affairs, slapstick pratfalls, back spasms, mistaken identities and illogical alibis...and that's just Act One! These hilarious rumor-based circumstances provide an evening that is "...loud, raucous, fast-paced, witty and pretty much over the top from curtain to curtain." NEWS TRIBUNE

May 4 – June 2, 2019
Fridays/Saturdays at 8pm ($21)
Sundays at 2pm ($17)
** No performances May 12 and May 24-26
