One of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory, this deliciously goofy revue centers on four eager young male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950’s on their way to their first big concert, who are miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was. Singing in the closest of harmonies, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, “Plaids” is a wonderful evening with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to some of the greatest nostalgic pop hits of the 50’s. The original production surprised everyone by playing for more that 4 years off-Broadway.

Hairspray delighted audiences by sweeping them away to 1960’s Baltimore, where the 50’s are out and change is in the air. Lovable plus-size heroine Tracy Turnblad has a passion for dancing and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show”. Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love without mussing her hair? The show has a great score, lots of heart, ran for 2,642 performances, and won 8 Tony Awards.

This very funny comedy is written by the authors of our big hit from two seasons ago, DEARLY DEPARTED. This one centers around the Futrelle sisters, Frankie, Honey Raye and Twink, who are throwing a wedding for a bride and groom that they can’t find. A lot of crazy antics ensue, but it all ends happily! Wild and funny!

The story of a marriage is at the center of this intimate and nostalgic work by the authors of THE FANTASTICS. The show begins with Michael and Agnes on their wedding day and traces their life together over a period of 50 years, until the day they leave their house to the next pair of newlyweds. In that time we watch them go through their wedding night jitters, raise a family, negotiate mid-life crisis, quarrel, separate, reconcile and grow old together. The original cast starred Mary Martin and Robert Preston and ran for 560 performances. A very successful national tour followed that starred Carol Burnett and Rock Hudson.

Book by Hugh Wheeler
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Jim Coleman
The rare instance of a musical thriller, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “barber-ism” and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th Century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs, as the people of London start lining up in droves for her new meat pie recipe! Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, the show has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor one moment and gasping in suspense the next. The show won 7 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize.
