Experience 80 years in a family's life in about 90 minutes in The Big Meal, an award-winning play by Dan LeFranc (Sixty Miles to Silver Lake). Watch five generations of Nicole and Sam's Midwestern family return to the same table, sharing snapshots of their love, loss, and life in this comic drama. The story flows quickly from the initial meeting of the young couple through their firsts -- date, fight and kiss. Once they're married with children, they're faced with a son and a daughter who'd rather be anywhere than at The Big Meal, along with the worsening dementia of Sam's father. And as the years pass, life's ebbs and flows are experienced together, revealing more surprises, both happy and heartbreaking. Learn More

The music and costumes were wonderful. The actors were great and had absolutely beautiful voices. The theater was a little too warm the evening we were there otherwise the venue was very nice - our seats were really good with an unobstructed view of the stage.
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Music by Richard Rodgers
Based on “Anna and the King of Siam” by Margaret Landon
Original Choreography by Jerome Robbins
In 1862 Siam, an English widow named Anna and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok. Anna has been summoned by the King of Siam to tutor his many children and wives. Can Anna and the King stay true to their own cultures while learning from each other? One of the great musical love stories of our time, The King and I is a richly textured and uplifting tale with a gorgeous score that includes “Getting to Know You,” “Shall We Dance,” and “Hello Young Lovers.”
