Played Sep. 30 – Oct. 21, 2023

Music, book, and lyrics by Jonathan Larson. Musical arrangements by Steve Skinner. Original concept/ additional lyrics by Billy Aronson. Music supervision and additional arrangements by Tim Weil. Dramaturgy by Lynn Thomson.

Rent is a groundbreaking musical based loosely on Puccini’s La bohème, about falling in love, finding your voice, and living for today. Winner of the Tony® for Best Musical – and one of only 10 musicals ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama – Rent has become a cultural phenomenon, with songs that rock and a story that resonates. It follows “525,600 minutes” (one year) in the life of a group of impoverished youths struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of AIDS. How they pursue their dreams provides a narrative thread that is at once exuberant, passionate, and joyous. 


A Little Night MusicA Little Night Music

January 27 – February 17, 2024

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by Hugh Wheeler. Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick. Suggested by a film by Ingmar Bergman.

The amazing Stephen Sondheim created a stunning tour de force when he adapted Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, into a masterpiece that garnered a dozen Tony® nominations, winning Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score. Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around an actress and the men who love her. The show is full of witty and moving moments of adoration, regret, and desire – interwoven with masterful orchestrations, and Sondheim’s most famous song, the haunting “Send in the Clowns.” 


Mary PoppinsMary Poppins

May 18 – June 8, 2024

Original music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman, Robert B. Sherman. Book by Julian Fellowes. Co-created by Cameron Mackintosh.

Based on the books by P.L. Travers and one of Disney’s most popular movies, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony® Awards, including Best Musical. Jack-of-all-trades Bert introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Mary Poppins arrives to take the children on magical adventures, while even the grown-ups learn a lesson or two. The musical serves up an enchanting mixture of delightful dancing, astonishing stagecraft, and a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious story.
