Legend has it that Sidney Poitier was so moved by the story of The Lilies of the Field that he waived his usual salary -- not knowing he would later win worldwide fame (and an Oscar) for his portrayal of the hard-headed Homer Smith. From the moment it was published as a novel by William E. Barret, The Lilies of the Field has had a special effect on people. Experience it yourself when Open Window Theatre presents this heart-warming stage adaptation. Headed west in search of a new beginning in the mid-1950s, black Southern Baptist itinerant worker Homer Smith encounters a group of Catholic nuns scratching out an existence in the remote Southwest. Mother Maria Marthe, convinced that Homer was sent to them by God to build them a chapel, persuades him to stay (without pay) and take on this seemingly impossible task. The faith of all are tested, proving that friendships and miracles alike come in all forms. Learn More

I went a second time to this show. I love the comedic timing of Nicely nicely Johnson and Benny Southstreet. The dancing bartender is a scream. Great choral numbers and talented solos. Rock the boat is fantastic.......... Don't miss this show.
__Guys and Dolls __is a nearly perfect blend of music, dance, comedy, and romance. But even more than that, the script is among the best of all of musical theatre. It is one of the very few musical scripts that is so good that it can almost exist as a play without the music. The characters in __Guys and Dolls __are slightly larger than life, but their intense humanity makes them unforgettable. Sarah and Sky. Adelaide and Nathan. These four characters are among the most interesting and most loveable ‘guys and dolls’ in musical theatre history.
The July 24 performance may feature an ASL interpreter if the theater recieves a request by July 10. See the advisories information for the July 24 show to make a request.
