SOMETHING ROTTEN! – FEBRUARY 9-11

Jointly produced with Theatre Intime

England, 1595: Welcome to the Renaissance! A time of innovation and rebirth, where we’ve discovered how to freeze meat and William Shakespeare is the hottest hotshot around. But what’s life like when he’s your competition? Introducing Nick and Nigel Bottom, struggling playwrights in Shakespeare’s shadow struggling to gain an audience. After some grade-A advice from everyone’s favorite soothsayer, Thomas Nostradamus, Bottom pioneers his biggest, boldest project yet: a musical. Complete with tap-dancing eggs, plagues, and a healthy amount of hating on Shakespeare, Bottom discovers that to be (or not to be) yourself is always the best option.

A CHORUS LINEAPRIL 26-28

A Chorus Line follows 17 dancers auditioning for a Broadway musical. After a grueling dance call, their director asks them to share their personal stories and journeys to the performing arts. Featuring a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch, and lyrics by Edward Kleban, the classic musical still rings true in its touching portrayal of life in theater and what it means to live for the music and the mirror.
