Fall in love with the magic and soul of Ella Fitzgerald all over again with this musical celebration of one of the most beloved jazz vocalists of all time. Ella, her cousin and traveling companion Georgiana, and her manager Norman Granz tell the story of her life both backstage and onstage, from her humble beginnings to worldwide superstardom. Featuring some of Fitzgerald's most famous hits, including "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "How High the Moon" and "That Old Black Magic," this thrilling new musical weaves myth, memory and music to tell a poignant, yet ultimately uplifting, story. This production is conceived, directed and choreographed by the great Maurice Hines. Learn More

<p>Heroes</p> <p>by Gerald Sibleyras</p> <p>translated by Tom Stoppard</p> <p>directed by John Vreeke</p> <p>featuring Ralph Cosham, John Dow and Michael Tolaydo</p> <p>Three soldiers in a Parisian veterans’ home pass the time with tales that are at once achingly funny and piercingly sad. With his rapier wit and dazzling use of language Tom Stoppard offers a brilliant new translation that mixes comic curmudgeonry, camaraderie and nostalgia. A smash hit when it premiered in Paris, Heroes received four Moliere nominations. The London production won the 2006 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.</p>
