2015-2016 BROADWAY SEASON
Menopause the Musical
(Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 3pm)
For more than a decade, Menopause the Musical has worked to inspire and support women dealing with life after “The Change”. Now, Menopause the Musical: The Survivor Tour benefiting Susan G. Komen is on a powerful mission to change lives. Featuring a cast of breast cancer survivors and co-survivors singing along to classic tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, the cast forms a sisterhood with the entire audience and helps women celebrate that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage”.
Marilyn Forever Blonde
(Saturday, October 24, 2015 at 2pm)
It is 1962 and Marilyn Monroe is in the midst of a photo shoot. Divorced for a third time, living alone, frustrated by Hollywood and tired of the “sex symbol” label, Marilyn longs to be respected for her talent and loved for who she really is rather than the character she has created for the silver screen. This award-winning play stars the incomparable Sunny Thompson, whose portrayal is uncanny, heartwarming, and gives an in-depth look into the late Marilyn Monroe’s life. (Contains some explicit material. May not be suitable for some audiences).
Bullets Over Broadway
(Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 7pm)
Based upon the screenplay of the acclaimed film by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, Bullets Over Broadway is the story of a young playwright who, in desperate need of financial backing for his next show, accepts an offer he can’t refuse from a mobster looking to please his showgirl girlfriend. Loaded with big laughs, colorful characters, and the songs that made the ’20s roar, Bullets Over Broadway is bringing musical comedy back with a bang.
(Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 3pm)
A scheming producer and his mousy accountant aim to produce the biggest flop on Broadway in Mel Brooke’s laugh-out-loud spectacle. Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brook’s classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor, winning a record 12 Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.

Just when Broadway thought it was safe from the poison pen of funny man Gerard Alessandrini, Forbidden Broadway returns, more hilarious than ever. Targets include Pippin, Kinky Boots, Les Miz and Matilda, joining favorites including Wicked and the Book of Mormon. This award-winning, fall-down funny musical roast of Broadway features outrageous costumes and hilarious rewrites of the songs you know – and dead-on impressions by a stellar cast!
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
(Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 1pm)
One of the most enduring shows of all time, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. This new production is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his brothers and the coat of many colors. The magical musical is full of unforgettable songs, including “Go Go Go Joseph,” “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”
