MAINSTAGE PRODUCTIONS

 

THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY

Sept. 23 to Oct. 14, 2017. Book by Marsha Norman. Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. Based on the novel by Robert James Waller.

 
The Bridges of Madison County

Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by a Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning creative team, The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America's heartland along with the yearning in the eternal question "What if...?" Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. After ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca's life. With its Tony Award-winning score and a heartbreaking story, The Bridges of Madison County is a sweeping romance about the roads we travel and the bridges we dare to cross that will leave you breathless.

 

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER

Jan. 27 to Feb. 17, 2018. A play by Rick Elice. Music by Wayne Barker. Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.

 
Peter and the Starcatcher

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how an unhappy orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island along with a mysterious trunk, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo called starstuff. This powerful celestial substance draws pirates, led by the fearsome Black Stache, who want to claim the trunk and its treasure for their own. A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, this play-with-music features a dozen actors portraying over a hundred unforgettable characters. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher uses wit, humor, and ingenious stagecraft to explore the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.

 

THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME

May 19 to June 9, 2018. Music by Alan Menken. Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. Book by Peter Parnell.

 
The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated film, this spectacular show features music by Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin”) and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked,” “Godspell.”) The story follows deformed bell-ringer Quasimodo and his adventures during the annual revels of the Feast of Fools, where he is treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. She alone sees the beauty beneath his exterior, and her kindness lays the foundation for a redeeming friendship that brings its own rewards when Quasimodo later saves her from the machinations of the devious Archdeacon Frollo. A full vocal choir underscores much of the show, powerfully evoking the backdrop of fifteenth-century Paris and Hugo’s classic gothic novel. You’re sure to be swept away by the magic of this touching and unforgettable musical adventure.
