Cabaret by Joe Masteroff, Fred Ebb and John Kander - Directed by Bradley Donaldson - February 13-March 8, 2009
As the 1920's draw to a close, Germany is balanced on the edge of a bloody sword and a new regime is poised for a rise to power. But, inside Berlin's fashionable, if tawdry, Kit Kat Club life is merry, the entertainment is superb and the girls are beautiful. When the lives of a young American writer and the club's most popular singer become hopelessly intertwined the Kit Kat Club becomes the setting for romance, political intrigue and heartbreak. Throughout it all, the Club's Emcee keeps the audiences eyes firmly on the passion onstage and diverted from the terrifying shadow of the Third Reich which looms just offstage.
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts - Directed by Garrick Dietze - April 17-May 3, 2009
One scene rolls into another as an itty-bitty cast plays over twenty characters running the full gamut of dating, sex, marriage, parenthood, divorce, death and all the other pitfalls, roadblocks and hazards on the rocky road of romance. Bright, sexy, witty and fun, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change will appeal to anyone who has ever fallen into the deep end of love and come out gasping for air. Joe DiPietro's and Jimmy Roberts's book and lyrics will leave audiences laughing, crying and loving a little bit harder.
The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare - Directed by Mishia Edwards - June, 2009
When poor Hortensio finds out he cannot marry Bianca, his one true love, until her violently standoffish sister Katherina takes a husband, his best friend Petruchio, in a show of true friendship (not to mention a desire for an enormous dowry) tries to woo the impossible Shrew. One of Shakespeare's oldest and most celebrated comedies, The Taming of the Shrew, pits wit against wit in a knock-down, drag-out battle of the sexes, set against the lovely backdrop of Padua, Italy.
