Grease!
Photo by Dan Norman
Need an escape from 2017? Then Grease is the Word! Harken back to the ’50s, rock ’n roll, high school days, raging hormones and fun times. Great songs, outfits and a whole lot of attitude. Truly a great night to be had by all.
Through October 28

Sunday in the Park with George
Inspired by Georges Seurat’s famous painting, this dazzling musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, two of the greatest musical theater artists of our time, merges past and present into a poignant and sophisticated exploration of what it takes, and what it costs, to be an artist. George is an obsessive painter who risks it all, including his relationship with his lover Dot, to complete his latest masterpiece. A century later, George’s great-grandson is working as an artist in New York City. In search of inspiration, he soon discovers that the answer to his future is painted clearly in his past.

Action Sequence
A propane-fueled, muscle-bound, rough and tumble, torn shirt, bloody bicep, car chasing, bar fight, coming down on that bottom rung of a helicopter, flick a lit cigarette into a pool of gasoline so that as you’re walking away in slow motion that thing that everyone in the audience wants to blow up actually blows up behind you, all ending with a cool contextually relevant tagline, homage to 1980s action movie, action sequence.  But with puppets.

Fly By Night
Set against the backdrop of 1965’s East Coast blackout, this musical is an ode to young love in a world filled with darkness. In a story both hilarious and bittersweet, a melancholy sandwich maker’s life is changed forever by two captivating sisters. With a score that will stay with you, “Fly By Night” reminds us that, “life is not the things we do … it’s who we’re doing them with.”
