Anatomy of Gray by Jim Leonard JR.
Directed by Marcus Laban
Performance dates: Oct 13, 14, 15*, 20, 21, 22, 2023
Gray, Indiana. 1800s. When young Juney's father dies, she prays for a healer to come to her small town so that no one will ever suffer again. The next thing she knows, Juney tells us, a tornado blows a man into town in a balloon. Claiming to be a doctor, he cures anything and everything. But when the town's preacher falls ill with a mysterious sickness that spreads, the townspeople become suspicious and fearful. Is the stranger a savior or a threat? Who can they trust? Anatomy of Gray is a thought-provoking and humorous look at love, loss, and hope.
*Talk back with directors and cast members following the Sunday, Oct. 15 matinee.
Brighton Beach Memoirs by Neil Simon
Directed by Tony Targan
Performance dates: January 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 2024
Synopsis: “Brighton Beach Memoirs” is part one of Neil Simon’s autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters, and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states, “if you didn’t have a problem, you wouldn’t be living here.”
The Sounds of Music
Directed by Jeff Davison
Music Directed by Matt Horn
Performance dates: May 31, June 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 2024
Synopsis: The Sound of Music is a musical with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. It is based on the 1949 memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. Set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938, the musical tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family while she decides whether to become a nun. She falls in love with the children, and eventually their widowed father, Captain von Trapp.
Many songs from the musical have become standards, including "Do-Re-Mi", "My Favorite Things", "Edelweiss", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain", and the title song "The Sound of Music".
