Description

Now-March 3, 2013_: An Ideal Husband_

Oscar Wilde’s hilarious tale of money, desire and marriage! An Ideal Husband is a wonderfully witty story of romance, insider trading, and scandal! Sir Robert is a highly respected politician whose spotless reputation is the pride of his beautiful wife and adoring sister. But when an old acquaintance threatens to reveal a dark secret from Robert’s past, only his womanizing, party-loving best friend is scheming and dishonest enough to come to his aid. As the story unfolds, it’s revealed that the man thought to be perfect is flawed, the man with all the flaws must do something right, and the question remains: what makes An Ideal Husband? Wilde’s timeless comedy explores morality and the greater standard that seems to fall upon those individuals in the public eye.

March 12-April 28, 2013: Good People

Broadway’s new drama about reaching for the American dream! Good People takes you to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. This new American play is a smart, funny and suspenseful story about people who succeed and the Good People who help them do it.

May 14-July 14, 2013: *_Grease*_

Broadway and Hollywood’s electrifyin’ musical, in a hot, all-new production! Get out your leather jackets, pull on your bobby socks and take a trip to a simpler time with the original high-school musical, _Greas__e_!

This new production features all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie, including “You’re The One That I Want,” “Grease Is The Word,” “Summer Nights,” “Hopelessly Devoted To You,” “Greased Lightnin’” and many more! Get ready to hand-jive the night away with the show that’ll make you want to stand up and shout, “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop A-wop-bam-boom!” It’s Grease, the most “electrifyin’” musical extravaganza on stage!
