In this whirlwind musical comedy, two writers try to raise enough "dough" for the most historically expansive show ever conceived. Set in a borrowed Park Avenue apartment, this two-man circus runs through the entire history of the universe in a record 90 minutes. Playing all the roles and using the décor of the high-priced apartment to bring this over-the-top production to life, both actors will have their talents put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors' unrealistic hopes and aspirations.
Area Stage Company is set to present one of the most ambitious shows in its history: a groundbreaking production of Cabaret. A story of love, ambition, and moral decay set at the decadent Kit Kat Klub during the rise of the Nazis in 1930's Berlin, Cabaret features music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and book by Joe Masteroff.
Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent, but not well equipped to deal with everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery that will change his life. An incredible journey to the world of a very special mind, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is Simon Stephens's Tony Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon's internationally best-selling novel.
It's 1897, and Jonathan Harker and his fiancée, Mina Murray, are welcoming Count Dracula from Transylvania. From that point on, nothing is what you'd expect it to be. Using Bram Stoker's novel as a starting point, Michael McKeever has reinvented the gothic horror tale with a feminist point of view and created female characters who not only stand up to the title character but eventually overcome him. Breaking the mold of what a Victorian "lady" should be, the women in this Dracula are strong, determined, and unwilling to play victim to any predator. A world-premiere play directed by Stuart Meltzer, this is a very modern take on a classic story.
In this one-person tour de force, a man attempts to cure his mother's depression by creating a list of the best things in the world. The list grows as he progresses from childhood ("ice cream") and adolescence ("Star Trek") to college ("surprises") and marriage ("falling in love"). But when life deals a bitter blow, the list proves to be helpful to the son in ways that it could never be for the mother. The exhilarating Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss and cathartic laughter.
During a wedding reception, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent, and touching celebration of the women's spirit.
The world-premiere musical Havana Music Hall revolves around the lives of Havana Music Hall's best-known musicians, who are just about to get their big break — and then Fidel Castro seizes power.
Set in 1958 Cuba, the show tells the story of husband-and-wife musical team Rolando and Ramona Calderon, who are on the verge of making it big when the Cuban Revolution tears apart the only life they've ever known. Almost 60 years later, the couple tries to forget the past in the now-devastated Havana Music Hall, but others won't let them. Directed and choreographed by Maria Torres (On Your Feet!), Havana Music Hall features a book by Carmen Pelaez (Rum & Coke) and original music and lyrics by Richard Kagan.
Hundred Days is the uncensored, exhilarating, and heartrending true story about embracing uncertainty, taking a leap, and loving as if you only had 100 days to live.
