Check out the exciting picks for Town Hall’s next season!

Evita

September 16, 2011 – October 16, 2011

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, Eva Peron was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, Evitacreates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

The Wizard of Oz

November 11, 2011– December 31, 2011

Book by L. Frank Baum, Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg

Little Dorothy Gale of Kansas, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies over the rainbow. This classic musical of her journey to the wonderful world of OZ, is both magical and meaningful. A perfect holiday experience for the entire family.

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.

Brigadoon

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.

The Who’s TOMMY

April 6, 2012 – May 6, 2012

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!

The Producers

May 18, 2012 – June 17, 2012

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks

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!
