Sunday in the Park with George
A Pulitzer Prize-winning musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim 
and book by James Lapine
October 6 - October 28, 2012
The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street 

One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.
Act One follows the inarticulate Seurat as he fights a losing battle to maintain a relationship with his mistress Dot as he creates his painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” amid the scorn of the artistic community. The second act takes place 100 years later, introducing us to his American descendant, also an artist, burned out and uncertain of the path he must take.

Black Box Theatre at 54 West Church Street

August: Osage County
A Pulitzer Prize-winning, dark comedy by Tracy Letts
November 30 - December 23, 2012
The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street

 

There’s a funnel cloud over Oklahoma, coming your way. It’s American theatre’s newest twisted family, the Westons. In the eye of the storm are three damaged sisters, their pill-popping mother and a houseful of troubled relatives. Tagged by The New York Times as “probably the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years,” Tracy Letts’ comic tragedy exposes the emotional destruction that rips through generations if nothing stops its path. This Pulitzer Prize winner is a domestic disaster that’s entertaining as all get-out.  

 

Mass Appeal
A dramatic comedy by Bill C. Davis
December 7 - December 30, 2012
Black Box Theatre at 54 West Church Street
 

 This brilliantly funny yet compassionate play had a long and critically hailed Broadway run. The play explores the conflict between an established older priest and the impassioned young seminarian who challenges the validity of his well-routined regimen.

Laughter on the 23rd Floor
A comedy by Neil Simon
January 25 - February 17, 2013
The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street

Chaos is king backstage at the Max Prince Show, a popular 1950s comedy-variety TV series. The stress of slipping ratings is eating Max alive, but his staff hurls nonstop zingers at each other and everyone within earshot. Simon has a ball fictionalizing his big break on Sid Caesar's fabled “Your Show of Shows,” and you will too during this great night out. 

 

Mrs. Warren's Profession 
A classic by George Bernard Shaw
February 8 - March 3, 2013
Black Box Theatre at 54 West Church Street

 

George Bernard Shaw’s scorching tour de force, Mrs. Warren’s Profession tells the story of Kitty Warren, a mother who makes a terrible sacrifice for her daughter Vivie’s independence.  The clash of these two strong-willed but culturally constrained women is the spark that ignites the ironic wit of one of Shaw’s greatest plays.

 

Enchanted April
A romantic comedy by Matthew Barber, from the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim

March 22 - April 14, 2013
The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street
 

Breezy, engaging and witty comedy about two frustrated London housewives who decide to rent a villa in Italy for a holiday away from their bleak marriages with two very different English women to share. Among the wisteria blossoms, all four bloom again, rediscovering themselves in ways that they - and we - could never have expected. "A magical triumph!" —LA Times

The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street

 

Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, Dreamgirls tells the rags-to-riches story of a 1960s Motown girl group, and the triumphs and tribulations that come with fame and fortune. With music by Academy Award-nominee Henry Krieger and lyrics and book by Tony and Grammy Award – winning Tom Eyen, Dreamgirls features the unforgettable hits: “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” “One Night Only” and “Listen.”

 

 

Collected Stories 
A drama by Donald Margulies
June 21 - July 14, 2013
Black Box Theatre at 54 West Church Street

 

This acclaimed drama by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies chronicles the relationship between two female writers - a celebrated New York author and her young protégé. As their fascinating story evolves, and the line between fact and fiction blurs, the twists and turns of this complex relationship weave a play that's as smart and witty as it is powerful.  "With his fine ear for detail, Margulies creates an authentic, insular world, and he gives equal weight to the opposing viewpoints of two formidable characters." – NY Times. 

 

 

Death of a Salesman 
The classic Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Arthur Miller
August 2 - August 25, 2013
The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street as part of the Gary and Maureen Fries Classics Series

One of the most important plays of the 20th Century, Death of a Salesman is considered by many to be Arthur Miller’s masterpiece, this iconic American drama harnesses bold realism with riveting theatricality and is a commentary on the American Dream which resonates even today.
