     Embrace the Sting

     Book by Sam and Bella Spewack
    Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter

    Kiss Me, Kate.  Cole Porter’s master piece follows the antics of a touring troupe of American actors as they reveal the back stage world of show business. The story revolves around the production of a musical version of William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and the on- and off-stage conflict between Fred Graham (the show's director, producer, and star) and his leading lady and ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi. This is Cole Porter’s biggest hit, a Tony Award winner, and includes audience favorites "So in Love," "Another Op’nin Another Show," "Too Darn Hot," and "Brush Up Your Shakespeare."


    History Puts on its Skinny Jeans

    Book by Alex Timbers
    Music and Lyrics by Michael Friedman

    Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson. An audacious mix of historical fact and fiction, it redefines America's controversial seventh president. The show is a comedic, historical rock musical that casts the president as an Emo rock star and focuses on populism, the founding of the Democratic Party, the Indian Removal Act, and his relationship with his wife, Rachel. The New York Times noted that "there is no show in town that more astutely reflects the state of this nation than Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson.”

    City of Angels. Book by Larry Gelbart, Music by Cy Coleman, Lyrics by David Zippel When Hollywood offers New York novelist Stine the opportunity to adapt his books into a film for the silver screen, he packs up and moves to the home of perennial sunshine, palm trees, and stars. City of Angels moves between the beautiful Technicolor world of Hollywood and Stine’s glamorous film noir-in-progress of the same title. While Stine’s movie plays out in black and white, Stine finds the dangerous temptations of the world of Los Angeles – the distraction of women, the lure of fame, and the artistic compromises being made right and left – all too colorful.

    Little Women. Book by Alan Knee, Music by Jason Howland, Lyrics by Mindi Dickstein Based on Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, the musical focuses on the four March sisters--brassy Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, kind-hearted Beth--and their beloved Marmee at home in Concord, Massachusetts while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army Chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with vignettes in which their lives unfold are severl recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio. At its core, it is a story about family and the love that binds them together against all odds.

    Book, music, and lyrics by Frank Loesser
    Based on the play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard

    The Most Happy Fella.  From the composer of Guys & Dolls comes this epic musical set in the Napa Valley of 1927. A May-December romance between Tony, an aging Italian Vintner, and Rosabella, a young and beautiful waitress from San Francisco, will warm your heart. The lush score and extensive dance sequences include favorites such as “Standing on the Corner,” “Somebody, Somewhere,” and “Big D,” played by the 35 piece CUA Symphony Orchestra. Opera and Musical Theatre fans alike love what The New York Daily Mirror called, “a masterpiece of our era.”


    Book by James Lapine
    Music and Lyrics by Stephen Soundheim

    Into the Woods. James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic.

    Carousel.  With music by Richard Rodgers and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, it is known for its soaring melodies, beautiful underscoring, and lush orchestrations. The musical tells the story of two couples in 1890’s Maine: carousel barker Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan, and Carrie Pipperidge and Enoch Snow. Though the show encompasses serious issues like domestic abuse and suicide, Brock says it is a story of redemption. What makes Carousel unique among Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musicals is its focus on realistic and flawed characters.
