THE FULL MONTY

Music & Lyrics by David Yazbeck
Book by Terrence McNally

While spying on their wives at a "Girls' Night Out," a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they're stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to "let it go." Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty, is a ten-time Tony Award nominee, by the powerhouse team of Terrence McNally (Anastasia, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Ragtime) and David Yazbek (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Band’s Visit).

GRAND HOTEL: THE MUSICAL

Music & Lyrics by Robert Wright & George Forrest
Additional Music & Lyrics by Maury Yeston
Book by Luther Davis

Come spend a night or two in the world's most luxurious and mysterious hotel. Esteemed bookwriter, Luther Davis (KismetTimbuktu!), collaborated again with the prolific, distinguished composer-lyricist team of Robert Wright and George Forrest (KismetTimbuktu!Magdalena), with additional songs by the great Maury Yeston (Nine, Titanic, Phantom) to create Grand Hotel, a seamless musical that won multiple Tony and Drama Desk Awards. It is 1928. The world is between wars, the stock market is booming, Berlin is the center of high life and optimism rules the day. However, underneath it all, much is happening with the Grand Hotel's illustrious clients. Inspired by Vicki Baum's period novel, issues of life and death, financial ruin, love and murder converge as people and come and go through the lobby of the Grand Hotel.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME

By Simon Stephens
Based on the novel by Mark Haddon

Winner of seven Olivier Awards in The West End of London and 5 Tony Award including Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time follows the story of 15-year-old Christopher who has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

VICTOR/VICTORIA

Music by Henry Mancini
Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
Book by Blake Edwards
Additional Arrangements by Frank Wildhorn

We know we’re in Paris, but is this person a he or a she? A man or a woman? What confusion...what fun! Victor/Victoria is an appealing, sophisticated show, based on the movie about the career of the Paris entertainer Victoria Grant, who becomes a star female impersonator, only to fall in love-at-first-sight with macho King Marchan. Based on the acclaimed and beloved 1982 film starring Julie Andrews and Robert Preston, the musical numbers include “Le Jazz Hot”, “You and Me”, “Almost A Love Song”, “Trust Me”, “Living in the Shadows”, “Paris By Night” and “Crazy World”. Life’s complications are both hilarious and touching.
