September 23, 2018 @ 7:00PM – Mame

Music & Lyrics: Jerry Herman
Book: Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee
Based on the novel Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis and the subsequent stage play by Lawrence and Lee

One of Broadway’s most luminous characters comes to our stage to remind us that ‘Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!’ Featuring one of Jerry Herman’s most tuneful and joyous scores, Auntie Mame takes us on a wild ride of life with her inherited little nephew, Patrick.

MAME premiered in 1966 starring Angela Lansbury, Bea Arthur and Frankie Michaels, who all won Tony© Awards for their performances. It was nominated for an additional 5 Tony© Awards and ran for 1,508 performances. A subsequent film version premiered in 1974 starring Lucille Ball.

November 11, 2018 @ 7:00PM – Zorba

Music: John Kander
Lyrics: Fred Ebb
Book: Joseph Stein
Based on Nikos Kazantzakis’s novel and the subsequent film Zorba the Greek

Prolific and ever versatile composers Kander and Ebb travel us to Greece with one of their most beautifully evocative scores. Based on the 1952 novel and 1964 classic film, we meet the exuberant and passionate Zorba as he befriends a fledgling American writer who confronts his own life choices when he falls in love with a local widow. As bluntly sung at the top of show…’Life is what you do while you’re waiting to die.’ Earthy, practical and ultimately true.

ZORBA opened on Broadway in 1968 in a production starring Hershel Bernardi and directed by Harold Prince. It ran for 305 performances and was nominated for 8 Tony© Awards with Boris Aronson winning for his scenic design. It was revived on Broadway in 1983 starring Anthony Quinn.

February 10, 2019 @ 7:00PM – Minnie’s Boys

Music: Larry Grossman
Lyrics: Hal Hackady
Book: Arthur Marx and Robert Fisher

Before Mama Rose there was Minnie, a super-Mom who was the driving force behind the famous Marx Brothers. A vaudeville performer herself, Minnie coaxed, pushed, pulled, and prodded the boys into their now-famous entity. Seldom seen but dearly loved, this Larry Grossman/Hal Hackady tuneful and infectious score takes us through the zany early years of the brothers as they get their start in burlesque. You know their films, but we bet you don’t know how it all started.

After an unusually long preview period of 64 performances, MINNIE’S BOYS opened in 1970 at Broadway’s Imperial Theatre. The musical, which played a total of 80 regular performances, was directed by Stanley Prager and starred Shelley Winters and Lewis J. Stadlen. The score includes the standout ‘Mama A Rainbow.’

May 5, 2019 @ 7:00PM – Sunday in the Park with George

Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Book: James Lapine

Winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for drama, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE is an enchanting show with a complex, beautiful, haunting score reflecting Georges Seurat’s imagined journey as he creates his most famous painting: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Then in classic Sondheim/James Lapine style it presents a second act centered around a modern-day descendant, also a George, an artist blocked and wrestling with the pursuit of his creative spark in today’s commercial world.

Act I premiered Off-Broadway in 1983 starring Bernadette Peters & Mandy Patinkin and on Broadway with both acts in 1984. It also won the Drama Desk & NY Drama Critic’s Circle Awards, was nominated for 11 Tony© Awards, & won for scenic & lighting design. Revived on Broadway in 2008 & 2017.
