NEXT TO NORMAL was nominated for eleven 2009 Tony Awards and won , Best Original Score, Best Orchestration and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical. It won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, becoming just the eighth musical in history to receive the honor. The Pulitzer Board called the show “a powerful rock musical that grapples with mental illness in a suburban family and expands the scope of subject matter for musicals.”
This musical tells the story of Diane Goodman, a mother struggling with bipolar disorder, and the effect this illness has on her family. It’s “an emotional powerhouse of a musical”, addressing such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and the undercurrents of suburban life, exploring via provocative lyrics and a thrilling score how far parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact.

Old world charm permeates every moment of THE BAKER’S WIFE, a gently bittersweet and offbeat fable of life, love and bread by Joseph Stein and Stephen Schwartz.
Provence, France, 1935. This rural village has been without a baker for seven weeks. Finally, the bickering residents find peace and contentment with a new baker, Aimable, and his attractive young wife, Genevieve. However, when Genevieve is lured away by a handsome young man with a penchant for passion, the middle-aged baker loses all zest for life – and baking. To restore gastronomic balance, the villagers must work as a team to bring Aimable and Genevieve back together.

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence in the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron – ‘saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy, and mistrusted by the military’ – was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy, unique to the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
