Location: East Bank Theater

WINNER of the 2013 TONY® AWARD for BEST PLAY!

Master of comedy Christopher Durang’s witty mash-up of Chekhov characters and smartphones is a delightful new farce for our hyperconnected era. Will Vanya and Sonia ever find happiness? Will Masha sell the Bucks County farmhouse out from under them? And will Spike ever put his pants on? In VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE, Durang, takes characters and themes from Chekhov, pours them into a blender and mixes them up. The utterly hilarious and occasionally touching result is his latest play set in present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, their electrifying story of love, adventure and crime captured the excited attention of an entire country. Now, the most notorious couple of the twentieth century takes on a whole new adventure: the stage.

WINNER of 12 TONY® AWARDS, including  BEST MUSICAL (’67), BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL (’98) and BEST SCORE.

Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd—and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times? Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time.” Right this way, your table’s waiting at CABARET, John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff’s Tony-winning musical that the New York Post calls “one for the ages.”

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

Opened: July 30, 2015

Closed: August 8, 2015

Location: Emmett Hook Center

A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus through an extraordinary, groundbreaking score. As compelling today as it was at its inception, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR has some of musical theater’s most legendary songs from “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Everything’s Alright,” and “Gethsemane” through to, of course, “Superstar.”
