A Chorus Line
September 8 – September 30, 2018

music by Marvin Hamlisch
lyrics by Edward Kleban
book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante

A Chorus Line is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the Broadway musical: the chorus dancers–those valiant, over-dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who live in the background of the limelight. Seventeen dancers compete for a spot in the chorus line of a Broadway show, and the drama unfolds as they perform dazzling dance numbers and reveal personal stories through heartfelt songs.


Anna in the Tropics
October 20 – November 4, 2018

by Nilo Cruz

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize, Anna in the Tropics is a poignant and poetic play set in 1929 in a Cuban-American Florida cigar factory, where cigars are still rolled by hand and “lectors” are employed to educate and entertain the workers. The New York Times exclaimed, “Mr. Cruz has created a work as wistful and affectingly ambitious as its characters. Anna in the Tropics reaches for the artistic heavens…”



MYSTERY PLAY!
December 1 – December 16, 2018


Black Box New Play Festival

Once Upon a Mattress
February 22 – March 17, 2019

music by Mary Rodgers
lyrics by Marshall Barer
book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer

This comic and progressive retelling of The Princess and the Pea will make you rethink your expectations of fairy tales. Once Upon a Mattress tells the story of the brave and strong Princess Winnifred who comes to the rescue of a kingdom in need of a new outlook on love, leadership, and life. Filled with hummable tunes, raucous comedy, fabulous dance numbers, and a happily-ever-after, this musical will appeal to audiences of all ages.


Steel Magnolias
April 13 – April 28, 2019

by Robert Harling

Steel Magnolias examines the relationships between a tight-knit group of southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, who witness the milestones in each other’s lives. The play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.


Spring Awakening
May 18 – June 9, 2019

music by Duncan Sheik
book and lyrics by Steven Sater

The winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Entertainment Weekly called this musical, “the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade.” Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. The landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock and roll.
