It's time to laugh your head off! Considered the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off is a roller coaster, side-splitting look at theatre - inside and out - as a hapless troupe of actors attempt to mount the dreadful comedy Nothing On. Door slamming, missed cues, and romantic entanglements will have you roaring with laughter as one catastrophe after another happens on stage and off. And, there is the always mysterious tray of sardines! Nothing heavy, nothing ground-breaking, just plain old hysterical lunacy and faces hurt from laughing; that's the promise of Noises Off!
Hailed by critics as the great American musical-with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and book by Arthur Laurents--the show is based on the memoirs of legendary stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. The highly entertaining story focuses on the ultimate stage mom, Mama Rose, and her hopes and dreams for her daughters, June and Louise. As the lights of Vaudeville dim, Louise steps into the spotlight as Gypsy Rose Lee and rises to become one of the most famed burlesque performers of all time. Featuring such songs as, Let Me Entertain You, Everything's Coming Up Roses, and You Gotta Have a Gimmick, this musical offers song, dance, humor and the sheer force of the amazing Mama Rose.

Next to Normal
Next to Normal, the Pulitzer-Prize winning rock musical, tells the story of a mother, Diane Goodman, who struggles with bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. This contemporary musical is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. With provocative lyrics and a thrilling score, the musical shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family's world intact. According to the New York Times, the show "isn't a feel-good musical, it is a feel-everything musical."
