SYLVIA
February 9-25
Directed by Diane Lee

Written by A.R. Gurney

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after 22 years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg's career is winding down, while Kate's is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart (and outspoken) mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention as she competes with Kate for Greg’s love and attention. Notably portrayed on Broadway by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Annaleigh Ashford, Sylvia is the sassy, sweet, and adorable star of this tail-wagging comedy.

"I can only call it one of the most involving, beautiful, funny, touching and profound plays I have ever seen…" – NY Daily News

"Gurney's mad comedy is the most endearing good time to trot down the pike in many a moon. Howlingly funny…" – BackStage

A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning classic about the cost of the American Dream. Willy Loman’s career is over. During a pivotal 24 hours, he reflects on his life as a father, husband and traveling salesman. Truth and lies intermingle as Willy tries to reconcile the optimism of his youth with his unfulfilled dreams. As the full force of reality crashes down on him, he places his last hope of success in his two sons. Arthur Miller’s classic play challenges us to reconsider what it means to succeed and the cost of chasing the American Dream.

Directed by Christopher Rose
Music Direction by Julia West

Book by Joe Masteroff • Music by John Kander • Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Based on the play by John Van Druten and Stories by Christopher Isherwood

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Two Ladies.”
