CITY OF ANGELS 
Directed by Chris Hull

September 17 - October 3, 2015

City of Angels is the rarest of musical comedies; one that is not only loaded with music and written in the contemporary jazz idiom, but also filled with sidesplitting comedy.

Set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40′s, the world of film studios and flimsy negligees, the show chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a young novelist, attempting a screenplay for movie producer/director, Buddy Fidler. Every movie scene that Stine writes is acted out onstage by a group of characters with a music scored in the genre, as we are treated to a live version of a 1940′s private eye film. It is a tale of decadence and homicide with a liberal sprinkling of femmes fatale. But it's not all fun and games for the private eye, as we bounce back and forth from the screen play to real life, or in this case "reel" life.

Book by Larry Gelbart. Music by Cy Coleman. Lyrics by David Zippel

Vocal arrangements by Cy Coleman and Yaron Gershovsky

AMADEUS 
Directed by Catherine Hagner

November 5 - November 21, 2015

This provocative work weaves a confrontation between mediocrity and genius into a tale of breathtaking dramatic power. In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri's envious grasp: Genius.

ROMANTIC COMEDY 
Directed by Julie King

January 21 - February 6, 2016

Arrogant, self centered and sharp tongued Jason Carmichael, successful co-author of Broadway romantic comedies, is facing two momentous events: he is about to marry a society belle and his collaborator is retiring. Enter Phoebe Craddock, Vermont schoolteacher and budding playwright. Quicker than a flash, Jason acquires a talented and adoring collaborator in the mousy Phoebe. Fame and success are theirs for ten years and then Jason's world falls apart. His wife divorces him to go into politics and Phoebe, her love for Jason unrequited, marries a breezy journalist and moves to Paris. Jason goes into professional, financial and physical decline as a newly chic Phoebe returns, solo and successful.

A darling of a play...zesty entertainment of cool wit and warm sentiment.

THE FRONT PAGE 
Directed by Sam Miller

March 10 - March 26, 2015

An irresistible comedy with thrills and derring do set in the news room. Hildy wants to break away from journalism and go on a belated honeymoon. There is a jailbreak and into Hildy's hands falls the escapee as hostage. He conceals his prize in a roll top desk and phones his scoop to his managing editor. Their job is to prevent other reporters and the sheriff from opening the desk and finding their story. Some hoodlums are enlisted to remove the desk, but they get mixed up with a Boy Scout troop and the mayor and a cleaning woman, among others. It's a whirlwind wrap up with Hildy finally making his breakaway, but the cynical managing editor has him arrested before he leaves town.

Gorgeously melodramatic. One of the funniest and most exciting of American plays.

Written by Ben Hecht & Charles MacArthur

RENT 
Directed by Peter Natale

June 2 - June 18, 2016

An inspiring musical about friends and artists struggling with addiction, poverty, AIDS and most of all, love.

Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the TONY Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

This is theatre at its best - exuberant, passionate, and joyous.

Book, Music and Lyrics by Jonathan Larson

Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International
