A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
January 13, 2012 – February 5, 2012
Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. This perfect escape from life’s troubles takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000 year old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest.
February 17, 2012 – March 18, 2012
A Scottish fantasy about a mysterious village that disappears into the Highland mist and returns for only one day every one hundred years. To the villagers, the magical passing of each century seems no longer than one night. This tribute to simplicity, true love and goodness, has been revived on Broadway several times and has earned both a Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award.

Book by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff, Music and Lyrics by Pete Townshend
After witnessing an accidental murder, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia. When his mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he shows himself to be an international pinball superstar. Based on The Who’s rock opera, TOMMY, this tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to triumph is the most electrifying evening of rock and roll ever to play in a theatre!
May 18, 2012 – June 17, 2012

Outrageous, hilarious, off the wall, and the winner of a record 12 Tony Awards are just a few things that The Producers is. But it is never boring and you will find yourself holding your sides with laughter as Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom sing and dance their way through the greatest show biz scam that there ever was!
