41st Anniversary Season, 2014-2015
This newest season is built sturdily on alliances and friendships made over the years. Some might remember Frawley Becker, whose 411 Joseph Street was one of our best received productions 20 years ago. He has a wonderful new play titled Tiger by the Tail that will be directed by Jules Aaron who gave us the recent Ghost of Gershwin and last year's Paris Letter. Gregg T. Daniel who gave us Heroes and Cobb and most recently our beautiful production of Someone Who'll Watch Over Me, returns to close out our season with Lombardi. Add to this, two original musicals by by long-time members, Doug Haverty and Phil Olson, and the outlook for these next 15 months is truly exciting!

Subscribers get all SIX PLAYS for the price of $75. In addition, they can attend free-of-charge several BONUS PRODUCTIONS that will be mounted throughout the year and will be able to bring

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
by Tennessee Williams

July 25 thru
Sept 7
The Pulitzer Prize and Drama Critics Circle Award winning play famously recounts how the faded and promiscuous Blanche DuBois is pushed over the edge by her sexy and brutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Streetcar solidified the position of Tennessee Williams as one of the most important young playwrights of his generation and is considered one of the most remarkable plays of our time. It created an immortal woman in the character of Blanche DuBois, the haggard and fragile southern beauty whose pathetic last grasp at happiness is cruelly destroyed.
This world premiere is set in a north woods bar in Bunyan Bay, MN, plans are on tap for a double wedding. But before the nuptials transpire, we’ll have to deal with a surprise visitor, two un-Hallmark proposals, an over-zealous wedding planner, a stag and stagette party, uber-mosquitoes, a quirky male stripper, an unhappy bridesmaid, a gigantic hangover, a sexy cheerleader, a rapping minister and the dreaded wedding dress. One small hitch before the hitchings, they can’t find anyone who will pay for the wedding. What could possibly go wrong? A lot. Rest assured, nothing will go as wedding-planned in Bunyan Bay. 16 original songs including, “The Marriage Test,” “The Day that Bob Dylan Was Here,” and “We’re All Gonna Die.”DON'T HUG ME

The hilarious and stylish sequel to Boeing Boeing. Ten years have passed and the roguish stars of Boeing Boeing, Robert and Bernard, have “settled down.” But that doesn’t stop the rush of sexy shenanigans, mix-ups and wild coincidences that keep this farce moving from curtain up. Bernard’s plan for a rendezvous in the countryside with his mistress takes an unexpected turn when his wife decides to stay in town for a tryst of her own with Robert... who had supplied Bernard with his alibi. With a cook named Suzette, a lover named Suzanne, a confused friend and a suspicious wife, you have all the ingredients for a truly scrumptious comedic soufflé.
When a middle-aged therapist starts a correspondence with a young state prisoner, the therapist gets far more than he bargained for in this searing West Coast Premiere, which garnered best play from the 2005 Firehouse Theatre Project’s Festival of New American Plays in New York. With the therapist located in California and a young state prisoner in Florida, this compelling piece depicts the unlikely relationship of two men who meet through a personal ad. The young man’s letters are unexpectedly eloquent, articulate, and full of heartfelt emotion and real poetry. The two men finally manage a face-to-face meeting and suddenly a life together seems possible—until prison guards and brutality challenge their chances and romantic hopes.TIGER BY THE TAIL

LOVE AGAIN
Book by Doug Haverty
Music by Adryan Russ
Lyrics by Russ & Haverty

May 15 thru
June 28, 2015
In the tradition of Broadway’s charming classic The Apple Tree (a series of three musical playlets each with its own storyline) Love Again includes three engaging mini-musicals tied together by a common question: What would you do in a situation like this? “In A Different Light,” “Two Lives” and “Forget-Me-Not” present three unique, contemporary situations about people caught up in difficult choices when it comes to loved ones. Love Again features a brand new Pop/Broadway score from the team that debuted Roleplay at the Group Rep, which eventually landed Off Broadway at The Cherry Lane Theatre as Inside Out.
Based on the book When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss. We follow Green Bay Packers coach Lombardi through a week in the 1965 season, as he attempts to lead his team to the championship. A “Look Magazine” reporter wants to “find out what makes Lombardi win” and spends a week with him that ultimately changes the writer’s life. This play is centered around an icon in American football, but at its core is a minefield of humanity; teaching, fathers & sons, facing seemingly insurmountable challenges, what makes a good leader and ultimately how the words we say to one another can inspire and change us.LOMBARDI
