In one of the latest works by Pulitzer Prize-winning David Mamet (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross), two attorneys are charged with defending a white man accused of raping an African-American woman. In the face of unraveling evidence, the lawyers' own uncomfortable beliefs about race rise to the surface. Director John Dillon tackles Mamet's rat-a-tat language and sharp jabs in this confrontational comedy that skewers modern-day "polite" society. Race premiered on Broadway in 2009 starring James Spader and David Alan Grier. Learn More

Had seen the musical twice when it was first shown at the Alliance before it reached Broadway. Thought it was so good then that I wanted to see it again. This performance seemed tighter and more compact. The band was great, and the dancing was very good, though not quite on par with the previous show. Would highly recommend it if you love Frank Sinatra's voice and enjoy the energetic, interpretive dancing that is a hallmark of the wonderfully talented Twyla Tharp.
Quotes & Highlights

- "Delivers the purest jolt of pleasure to be found on a Broadway stage." --<em>Time </em>

Come Fly Away follows four couples as they fall in and out of love during one song and dance filled evening at a crowded nightclub. Blending the legendary vocals of Frank Sinatra with a live on-stage big band and 14 of the world’s finest dancers, Come Fly Away weaves an unparalleled hit parade of classics, including “Fly Me to the Moon,” “My Way,” and “That’s Life,” into a soaring musical fantasy of romance and seduction.
The show’s score combines classic and newly discovered vocal performances from the Sinatra archives, along with Sinatra’s signature arrangements by Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Quincy Jones, among others, and brand new charts, for this fresh innovative musical.
