SUMMER 2014 SEASON
Our Fiftieth Anniversary!
music and lyrics by Noel Coward, devised by Roderick Cook
A sparkling revue of the music and musings of a comic master!
June 12 - 22
We’re starting off our 50th anniversary season with a Marvelous Party--and you’re invited! An intoxicating cocktail of the effervescent songs and fiendishly clever wit of Noel Coward. His sparkling songs (Mad About the Boy, I’ll Follow My Secret Heart) and charming dialogue from classics like Blithe Spirit & Private Lives combine for an unforgettable evening.
by Geoffrey Nauffts
An award-winner that the New York Times called “the funniest heartbreaker in town.”
June 26 - July 6
Two men in love, two parents in denial, two friends on speed dial. When Luke is injured in a car accident, his partner Adam must negotiate Luke’s family and reconcile the differences in their faiths. Timely and touching, the play exposes the fundamental truth that we love people both because of – and in spite of – who they are. A thought-provoking look at faith, commitment and unconditional love.
by Ira Levin
A thriller from the twisted imagination that authored Rosemary’s Baby.
July 10 - 20
Writing a Broadway hit can be murder! Stumped by writer’s block, Sidney Bruehl’s stellar playwrighting career has screeched to a halt, until a young unknown writing student sends him a manuscript to read and critique. Sidney recognizes a potential blockbuster. Will his next plot be a plan to bump off the young man and claim the play for his own?
Book by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg
Music by Claude-Michel Schönberg Lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer
The world’s most beloved musical, as you’ve never seen it before!
July 24 - August 3
Jean Valjean steals a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. From this simple act of desperation springs a classic tale of broken dreams, passion, obsession, and redemption, set against the backdrop of a nation in the grip of revolution. Whether it’s your first time experiencing this enthralling story, or your 101st, you won’t want to miss this thrilling score and this timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit!
What the Butler Saw
by Joe Orton
A wild and wacky romp!
August 7 - 17
When bawdy Dr. Prentice makes a pass at his shapely young secretary, and Mrs. Prentice--who’s just returning from her own hanky panky with a hotel bell hop--walks in on her husband’s indiscretion, the fun’s begun! A zany series of machinations ensues as each tries to hide their infidelities from the other. Add a Government inspector, guns, strait jackets, men dressed as women, women dressed as men, and a policeman searching for the stolen private parts of Winston Churchill, and the situation spirals into the absurd, and the hilarious!
