of Musicals, New Plays and Classics!
SWEENEY TODD music by Stephen Sondheim, book by Hugh Wheeler
Directed by John Fredo
With 8 Tonys under its belt, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, dramatic, yet funny musical theatre classic. The infamous 19th century tale of the revenge-seeking demon Barber of Fleet Street has shocked and awed audiences across the world. Director John Fredo brings together a cast featuring Kavinoky favorites from last season’s smash hit Mamma Mia! — Matt Witten as Sweeney is paired again with Loraine O’Donnell as Mrs. Lovett, with Peter Palmisano also starring as Judge Turpin. Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies will be available during the show…are you brave enough to sample?
A DOLL’S HOUSE PART 2 by Lucas Hnath
Directed by Robert Waterhouse
When last we left off with Nora Helmer in Henrik Ibsen’s landmark 1879 drama A Doll’s House, she needed to find out who she was … and so she walked out that door, leaving her family behind. Fresh off its award winning Broadway run, this play begins 15 years later with a knock on that same door —Nora has returned for a visit. Starring Kristen Tripp Kelley as Nora, this “sequel” comes almost 140 years after the original and answers the question : “what ever happened to Nora?” Funny as well as poignant, playwright Lucas Hnath made sure that her story didn’t end when the door slammed shut.
SPAMALOT by Eric Idle and John Du Prez
January 11th-February 3rd
Directed and Choreographed by Lynne Kurdziel Formato
Monty Python stalwart Eric Idle and composer John Du Prez adapt the classic film Monty Python and the Holy Grail into a musical featuring the Knights Who Say Ni, killer rabbits, accused witches, and other Python touches. Spamalot adds swipes at Vegas glitz and Broadway conventions to the film’s anarchic spirit. Director Lynne Kurdziel Formato returns after directing last season’s smash hit’s The Producers and Mamma Mia!
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD dramatized by Christopher Sergel
Adapted for the stage, To Kill a Mockingbird is the Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the Deep South—and the story of the heroism of one man in the face of blind hatred. Christopher Evans plays Atticus Finch in this classic American drama.
Equivocation by Bill Cain
April 26th-May 19th
William Shakespeare is commissioned by Sir Robert Cecil, the most powerful man in England, to write the true history of the Gunpowder Plot — a failed attempt to kill King James I. But as “Shag” and his actors rehearse their new play, they suspect the government’s version might be a product of “alternative facts.” Now, the greatest writer of all time must decide between writing a lie and losing his soul, or writing the truth and losing his head. ? A high-stakes political thriller with contemporary resonances, EQUIVOCATION gallops from the great Globe to the Tower of London to the halls of Parliament.
