Out of Love

by Elinor Cook

June 16-19

A funny, tender and well-crafted celebration of the richness of female friendship, spanning over thirty years. Lorna and Grace have been inseparable best friends since childhood, who grow up sharing everything in their lives, and they dream of escaping their dreary small town together. But fate intervenes, sending each in a different direction in life. Out of Love explores the messy, joyous, and sometimes painful complexities of the relationship between Lorna and Grace in a unflinchingly honest and compelling fashion. 

8-Track: The Sounds of the 70s

Conceived by Rick Seeber

June 23-July 3 

With its propulsive rhythms and dazzling harmonies, 8-Track is a fast-paced musical romp through one of the most impassioned decades of the 20th century. This Baby Boomers’ dream come true features the music of The Emotions, The Carpenters, Labelle, Barry Manilow, Marvin Gaye, The Doobie Brothers, The Bee Gees, Helen Reddy, KC and the Sunshine Band, and more! Rediscover the heart and soul of the forgotten decade with this joyously rousing, moving, and often downright hilarious musical in concert.

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change (2018 Version)

Book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro
Music by Jimmy Roberts

July 7-17

The longest running off-Broadway revue in history has been revised for the 21st century! This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship.’ This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'

Ordinary Days

Music and lyrics by Adam Gwon

July 21-31

From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point.) Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, from the novella by Robert Louis Stevenson

August 5-7 (No Wed show)

A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave.
