Theatre Productions: 2016-2017 Season
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang
November 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 2016
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play.
Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries Masha. Some of the show's elements are derived from works of Anton Chekhov, including several character names, the play's setting in a cherry orchard, and the theme of the possible loss of an ancestral home.
Urinetown music by Mark Hollmann, lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, and book by Greg Kotis
February 17, 18, 24, 25, March 2, 3, 4, 2017
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards.
Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, this musical provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.
Stop Kiss by Diana Son
May 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 2017
"A poignant and funny play about the ways, both sudden and slow, that lives can change irrevocably," says Variety. After Callie meets Sara, the two unexpectedly fall in love. Their first kiss provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives in a way they could never anticipate. The story is told out of chronological order: alternating scenes take place respectively before and after the assault. “I can't remember when a love story has moved me more,“ says Charles McNulty of the LA Times.
