JOHNNY GUITAR, THE MUSICAL!
book by Nicholas van Hoogstraten
lyrics by Joel Higgins
music by Martin Silvestri & Joel Higgins
directed by Robert Love
music direction by Pat King
Based on the iconic (and unintentionally hilarious) Joan Crawford film, Johnny Guitar gleefully sends up 1950s melodrama and shoot-em-up Westerns. An award-winning Off-Broadway camp-fest with a great score!

DEAD MAN’S CELL PHONE
by Sarah Ruhl
directed by James Nelson
A wildly imaginative comedy from the brilliant mind of Sarah Ruhl. It is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically-obsessed world.
AUGUST 22–SEPTEMBER 20
BERLIN TO BROADWAY WITH KURT WEILL
music by Kurt Weill
directed by Ellen Brooks
music direction by Bruce Haines
A remarkable musical voyage through the career of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Weill’s musical masterpieces are presented in a glorious blend of song and story that takes us from the terror of Hitler’s Germany to the glamour of the golden age of the Great White Way.
NOVEMBER 14–DECEMBER 13
MY THREE ANGELS
by Sam & Bella Spewack
directed by Steve Hill
A delightfully eccentric holiday comedy that trips along with a trio of unlikely saints who intervene in the lives of a family in dire straits. My Three Angels is a high-spirited, old-fashioned and wonderfully-crafted fable to take home for the holidays!
