Shout! The Mod MusicalSHOUT! The Mod Musical

Sep. 25 – Oct. 16, 2021
Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein.

Our first show back in the Saratoga Theater is pure, frothy fun. With its irresistible blend of hip-swiveling hits, eye-popping fashions and outrageous dance moves, SHOUT! The Mod Musical takes us back to the 1960s with terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as “To Sir with Love,” “Downtown,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” and “Goldfinger.” Follow five groovy gals as they redefine themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender. The hits are tied together by hilarious sound bites—from ’60s commercials to letters answered by an advice columnist who thinks every problem can be solved with a “fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick.”


On the Town

May 20 – June 4, 2022
Music by Leonard Bernstein. Lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Based on the ballet Fancy Free by Jerome Robbins.

Combine a soaring Leonard Bernstein score, witty lyrics by Comden and Green, and a sweet tale about three sailors grabbing 24 hours of shore leave in New York City before shipping off to World War II, and you get an American classic that is renowned for its timeless exuberance. With brash, spectacular, and slightly bittersweet abandon, On the Town is a tale about seizing the day and living life to its fullest. It features the seductively upbeat “I Can Cook, Too;” the melancholically beautiful ballad, “Lonely Town;” and that most beloved of toe-tapping tunes, “New York, New York.”



Jan. 29 – Feb. 19, 2022 (POSTPONED DUE TO COVID: New dates: Sept. 24 – Oct. 15, 2022)
Tony®-winning music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Tony®-winning book by George Furth.

From musical theatre’s most renowned composer, Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre and winner of six Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics, and Best Book. On the night of his 35th birthday, Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions with his friends. Company features many of Sondheim’s best-known, award-winning songs, including “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Side by Side by Side,” and the iconic “Being Alive.” Let’s all drink to that.

Broadway in Love Spring ConcertBroadway in Love

Feb. 13, 2022 at 7:30 pm (POSTPONED DUE TO COVID. Rescheduled for Sunday, Apr. 17, 2022 at 7:30 pm.)
A springtime concert musically directed by Brad Handshy.

Bring your sweetheart to this one-night-only spring celebration of Broadway love songs from such legends as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Irving Berlin, Lorenz Hart, Alan Jay Lerner, and Cole Porter. Up until the 1960s, most of the great love songs that singers performed—and that couples danced to and fell in love to—came from Golden Age Broadway musicals. (Think shows like South Pacific, The King and I, Carousel, Fiddler on the Roof, Babes in Arms, and Oklahoma!) Brad Handshy, who created our sell-out Broadway by the Decade series, showcases some highly romantic gems from  these musicals (and others!) to bring you a specially curated spring concert of Broadway’s greatest love songs—old and new, serious and comic—featuring many of your favorite SBMT singers.
