September 19 to October 10, 2015 - Music by Jerry Bock. Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. Book by Jerome Weidman and George Abbott.


From the legendary writers Bock and Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me) comes this classic feel-good musical about one of the early 20th Century’s most colorful characters, New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia. In a city rife with corruption, it takes an honest “man of the people” to battle the crooks and carry the banner of the common citizen. Fiorello overcomes incredible odds as he rises to power in these tumultuously changing times, finding purpose and even a bit of romance along the way. The bright, tuneful score and compelling script garnered three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, as well as the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama (which has only been awarded to eight musicals in Broadway history). Fiorello! is a witty, sweet, and upbeat tale that will have you, too, cheering for the “little man with a big heart.”


Forever Plaid

January 30 to February 21, 2016. Written and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Stuart Ross.

Forever Plaid

Once upon a time there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx, and Frankie) who discovered they shared a love for music, and then got together to form a close harmony group. But on the way to their first big gig in 1964, their career was cut tragically short by a freak accident with a school bus. Now the heaven-sent quartet is finally getting the chance to come back to earth and perform the show that should have been—and they’re doing it just for you! Forever Plaid is a goofy, nostalgic romp that has played to sold-out houses across the country for the past 25 years. It features some of the best pop songs from the 1950s, including Three Coins in a Fountain, Heart and Soul, Lady of Spain, Catch a Falling Star, Rags to Riches, Chain Gang, and Love is a Many-Splendored Thing. The Plaids are sure to please you, charm you, and tickle your funny-bone.



May 21 to June 11, 2016. Music by Jule Styne. Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by Arthur Laurents. Suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee.


Gypsy tells the gripping story of Mama Rose, the ultimate “stage mother,” as she aggressively fosters her children's theatrical careers, and then struggles to cope with one daughter’s rise to burlesque stardom. Loosely based on the memoirs of striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee, the story provides an intimate look at on-stage and off-stage theatrical life, with all of its trials, triumphs, laughs, and heartbreaks. Jule Styne’s outstanding score is packed with hits like Let Me Entertain You; Everything’s Coming Up Roses; You Gotta Get a Gimmick; and Together, Wherever We Go. Numerous critics have called Gypsy “the greatest American musical,” and it has been successfully revived on Broadway four times since its 1960 premiere. With its fascinating characters, powerful score, and rich plot lines, Gypsy is a shining example of musical theatre art and an evening of sure-fire entertainment.
