70, GIRLS, 70 — (November 10 — December 17, 2023)
(A zesty musical caper)
Music: John Kander • Lyrics: Fred Ebb
Book by David Thompson & Norman L. Martin
Based on the play Breath of Spring by Peter Coke, adapted by Joe Masteroff
This long-buried gem will sparkle with its glorious, catchy music and wittily hysterical lyrics. A charming group of clever, enterprising senior citizens take matters into their own hands when their residence hotel is about to be sold. They band together and take life by the bootstraps and go to extraordinary creative measures to save their home. Along the way they discover the value of saying “YES!” when life invites us.
12 ANGRY JURORS — (January 26 — March 3, 2024)
Adapted by Sherman L. Sergel, based on the Emmy-winning television movie by Reginald Rose
Following the closing arguments of a murder trial, the twelve members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen. As these normal citizens try to reach a decision, one juror casts considerable doubt on the elements of the case. Initially broadcast on television in 1954, this microcosm of society mirrors the conflicts, beliefs and compassion of humanity, and is still amazingly relevant today. The democratic jury system is meant to be impersonal, but it ultimately becomes personal, revealing and passionate, as anger rears its dramatic head.
COULD I HAVE THIS DANCE? — (March 29 — May 5, 2024)
By Doug Haverty
This award-winning comedy-drama looks at modern love, complicated relationships, working-from-home and a family that is actually functional. Poetic and —at times — startling, this play was voted by the American National Critics Association as the Best Regional Play of 1992. What starts as a delicious, fast-paced romantic comedy, pivots as a medical crisis forces the family members to ask serious questions and not everyone wants to know the answers. This play was actually developed at The Group Rep, premiered at The Colony, and has since traveled the world. This revival promises to be as engaging as it was before the turn of the (last) century.
YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU — (May 31 — July 7, 2024)
By George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart
This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic play is effervescent delight as it paints a richly, colorful portrait of the country’s most eccentric, lovable household. A girl from a family of freethinkers falls for the son of a conservative banker. Expect the unexpected, enjoy the unpredictable and relish the intellectual ecstasy of this American Theatre timeless chestnut. Originally produced on Broadway in 1936, this play ran for nearly three years. The 1938 film won the Oscar for Best Film.
MURDER AFTER HOURS (The Hollow) — (August 2 — September 8, 2024)
By Agatha Christie
Part Downton Abbey, part Noel Coward, this is Agatha Christie at her champagne-escapist-mysterious best. A weekend in the country leads to long-hidden love revealed, a lover’s triangle exposed, movie star confessions and — of course — deadly deeds. An impatient, cantankerous Scotland Yard Inspector puts a wonderful froth to the investigation and wild-mouse-ride of unravelings. Originally titled MURDER AFTER HOURS, it was re-titled THE HOLLOW (named after the estate where the action takes place. Miss Christie felt that this was her best play and it differs from the book substantially.
THE ORPHAN’S REVENGE (or ABANDONED AT COOPER’S CROSS) — (Oct. 4 — Nov. 10, 2024)
(A dastardly musical)
Book by Suzanne Buhrer & Gene Casey
Music by Gene Casey, Suzanne Buhrer & Jan Casey
The current crop of unstoppable Marvel-inspired feature films all got their start from the tremendously popular melodramas of the 1800s with the heroine, hero and dastardly villain. THE ORPHAN’S REVENGE is immersive and audience responsive (with the actors actually responding back to the audience). Our selfless heroine sacrifices herself to keep the orphanage from being recycled into a saloon. And to make this even more enjoyable, all this fun is wrapped in a musical format! Originally produced by the Group Rep, this was one of the most successful productions in our 50-year history, eventually winding its way to the Ford Theatre in Washington, DC. It is tongue-planted-ferociously-in-
