A Chorus Line

June 5 - June 14, 2014

Music by Marvin Hamlisch Lyrics by Edward Kleban Book by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante Conceived by Michael Bennett
Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

A Chorus Line, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, tells the story of the unsung heroes of the Broadway musical—the dedicated, talented and overworked chorus dancers. The drama of their competition for a part in the chorus of a new musical will grab you from the first number. This nine-time Tony-Award winning musical and dance spectacular brings to life the dream, the thrill and the hope of the Broadway audition. We’ve all waited fingers crossed, butterflies in our stomach thinking “I hope I get it…” and with one captivating song and dazzling dance after another, it is a brilliant metaphor for all human aspiration.

The Sunshine Boys

Jerry Adler and Richard Kline

Jerry Adler (left) and Richard Kline (right).

40 years ago Lewis and Clark were the biggest names lighting up the vaudeville stages. Now they will return to take center stage on television in a CBS special on the history of comedy. The only problem is they haven’t spoken in years.

Jerry Adler, last seen on CRT’s stage in the smash hit comedy I’m Connecticut, returns as Willie Clark. Richard Kline, of television’s Three’s Company makes his CRT debut as Al Lewis.  Neil Simon’s writing and sharp one-liners provide non-stop laughs and a nostalgic glimpse of life on and off the stage. The Sunshine Boys captures the fading days of vaudeville, and provides a hysterical roadmap to the comedy of today.

Gypsy

July 10 - July 20, 2014

Book by Arthur Laurents Music by Jule Styne Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

GypsyGypsy tells the story of the “ultimate stage mother” Rose and her dream to raise her daughters to perform on the vaudeville stage. Mama Rose has become arguably the greatest female role in musical theatre due to its emotion, complexity and powerful songs. Filled with an incredible score by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, musical theatre lovers will be enthralled by the songs “Some People,” “Rose’s Turn,” “Let Me Entertain You” and, of course, “Everything’s Coming up Roses.” It is no wonder that Gypsy has been called “one of the top contenders for the title of Best Musical Ever” by Terry Teachout in The Wall Street Journal.
