In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

"The Mikado" was a real treat! It had all the flavor of Gilbert & Sullivan, with some 21st century topical/political references which updated the story and made it relevant...and made the audience listen for the humor! The cast was excellent--no screechy sopranos--all wonderful singers and actors. The design team did a lovely job on the set and costumes as well. Overall, a very enjoyable theatre experience!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this production. The music, voices, costuming, stage set, and most importantly the acting and comedy aspects of the show were wonderful. It's great to have humorous current political commentary woven into this...continued
Three little maids from school, a wandering minstrel, a pompous government official, and the Lord High Executioner… just some of the hilariously absurd characters in Gilbert & Sullivan’s most beloved work, The Mikado. Set in the fictional town of Titipu, The Mikado is a tale of the beautiful school girl Yum-Yum who is engaged to be married to Ko-Ko despite her love for the romantic wandering minstrel, Nanki-Poo. Will these two young lovers find their happily-ever-after… or will heads roll? This deliciously witty musical satire of social mores and politics is sure to delight audiences of all ages!
