The Revolutionists*, Sept. 28, 2022
by Lauren Gunderson
Four bodacious women lose their heads (literally) in this irreverent, women-centered tragicomedy set during the French Revolution. This witty, thought-provoking, raucously funny adventure was inventively conceived by one of today’s most-produced American playwrights.
* Includes adult language/themes. Audience discretion advised.

Gypsy: A Musical Fable, March 8, 2023
Music by Jule Styne; Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by Arthur Laurents
Based on Gypsy: A Memoir by Gypsy Rose Lee
Speculated by many (including New York Times critic Ben Brantley) to be the greatest of all American musicals, Gypsy tells the story of one woman’s efforts to get her daughters into show business. Featuring musical theatre standards like “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” and the show-stopping “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” Gypsy helped launch Stephen Sondheim’s career and earned Mama Rose a place in the theatrical canon as the quintessential Stage Mother.
