Storrs: Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) Artistic Director Vincent J. Cardinal is pleased to announce that three-time Tony Award-nominee Terrence Mann will return to CRT this summer. The Nutmeg Summer Series will feature three incredible musicals, beginning with Les Misérables, Peter Pan and Xanadu. The series runs May 28th through July 19th. Subscriptions are now on sale. Single tickets will go on sale in late April.
The Nutmeg Summer Series will kick off with Les Misérables, directed by Terrance Mann. Mann will play Inspector Javert, reprising the role he originated on Broadway and for which he received his first Tony-nomination. The cast will also feature Tony-nominee Liz Larsen, of Broadway’s Beautiful, and Ariana DeBose who is currently in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s acclaimed hip-hop musical Hamilton. Les Misérables, the winner of eight Tony Awards, is the enthralling story of broken dreams, passion and redemption in 19th century France.
Then follow the boy who won’t grow up on a musical adventure to Neverland. Families will delight as Peter and the lost boys battle the greatest villain of all time Captain Hook played by Terrence Mann. This classic musical for all ages features the songs “I’m Flying,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” and the timeless “Never Never Land.” Peter Pan is directed and choreographed by Cassie Abate (A Chorus Line, The Music Man).
All three musicals are performed in the intimate Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre on the scenic campus of the University of Connecticut.
The summer concludes as CRT takes audiences back to the 1980’s in this glorious take on the cult movie-musical Xanadu starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly. It’s hilarity on roller skates as the beautiful Greek muse Kira, descends from Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, CA on a quest to inspire the creation of the first roller disco! Xanadu will star Luke Hamilton and Amandina Altomare who stole audiences’ hearts in last summer’s Gypsy as Tulsa and Gypsy Rose Lee. Filled with legendary chart topping pop songs such “Evil Woman,” “Strange Magic,” and “Have You Ever Been Mellow,” Xanadu will take you and your family on a hilarious roller skate ride through mirror-balls, disco dancing and to the heights of Mount Olympus.
