A New Brain
Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Book by William Finn and James Lapine
 
September 30th, 2022 – October 8th, 2022

Composer Gordon Schwinn is reluctantly writing a song for the star of a children’s TV show when he collapses. Supported by his lover, mother, best friend, and a manic medical team, Gordon confronts what appears to be a life-threatening illness while haunted by unfinished work and the specter of Mr. Bungee – the star of the children’s program. This moving, relatable, and comical musical by the Tony award-winning team of William Finn and James Lapine offers a touching examination of the ephemeral nature of life and the healing powers of art.


The three Musketeers 

Ken Ludwig’s The Three Musketeers
Adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas
 
November 10th, 2022 – November 19th, 2022

Hot-headed d’Artagnan and his fearless sister Sabine set off for Paris in search of adventure.  D’Artagnan hopes to join the King’s Musketeers.  Sabine is bound for a convent school, but soon decides she’d rather fight by her brother’s side. With their new best friends Athos, Porthos, and Aramis by their sides, the siblings take on Cardinal Richelieu to save the day for king and country.  Ken Ludwig’s (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) modern adaptation of Dumas’ novel delivers plenty of romance, wit, and swashbuckling action in this classic tale of loyalty, justice, and honor.


The Rover

The Rover
by Aphra Behn
 
March 1st, 2023 – March 10th, 2023

Three young women seeking liberation abandon their conventional lives.  Three passionate cavaliers wander in exile. Their meet-cutes at a non-stop party filled with music, masked revelry, and scandal leave all struggling to find true love and define identity in an uncertain world. With the publication of her hit rom-com in 1677, Aphra Behn, poet, translator, and political spy, became the first professional female playwright in the English language and an early voice for feminism. Bringing this classic piece to a fresh, contemporary setting highlights the staying power of this remarkably modern work.


Lucky Stiff

Lucky Stiff
Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Music by Stephen Flaherty
 
April 20th, 2023 – April 29th, 2023

Harry Witherspoon, a proper English shoe salesman, is set to inherit $6 million dollars – but only if he can take his dead uncle on vacation to Monte Carlo and pass him off as alive! Add the uncle’s suspicious mistress, a dog-loving rival to the inheritance, and a bevy of French chorus girls into the mix, and you’ll see why Uncle Tony is not the only Lucky Stiff! This hilarious, upbeat musical murder-mystery farce is the first of many collaborations by the Tony Award-winning team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. (Ragtime, Seussical, Anastasia, Once on This Island)
