BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON February 28 – March 16
Music & Lyrics by Michael Friedman RATED R
Book by Alex Timbers
This musical tells the story of America's first political maverick. A.J. kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards all in the name of these United States--who cares if he didn't have permission? An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, the show recreates and reinvents the life of "Old Hickory," from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as Commander-in-Chief.
AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY May 30 – June 15
By Tracy Letts RATED R
A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
NOISES OFF July 18 – August 3
By Michael Frayn RATED PG-13
Called the funniest farce ever written, this play presents a manic menagerie of characters as a cast of itinerant actors rehearse a flop play called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, onstage and backstage intrigue, and errant sardines all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
HAIR September 19 – October 5
Music by Galt MacDermot RATED R
Lyrics & Book by Gerome Ragni & James Rado
This classic rock musical tells the story of Vietnam-era youths awkwardly but exuberantly creating their own rite of passage through the confusion around them. With themes of alienation and civil disobedience Hair illustrates the '60s generation's search for meaning through various "be-ins," "love-ins" and protests. Phenomenal musical numbers include Aquarius, Good Morning Starshine, Hair, I Got Life, Let The Sunshine In and Easy To Be Hard.
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES November 7 - 23
Music & Lyrics by Jerry Herman RATED PG
Book by Harvey Fierstein
After twenty years of un-wedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse get a bit of both when Georges' son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the 'family business': Albin and Georges run a transvestite nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the "star" performer 'Zaza'. When Anne's parents want to come and meet Jean-Michel's mother and father, chaos ensues.
