FENCES
February 10, 2017 - March 04, 2017

by August Wilson

Winner of theatre's highest honors including 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Fences is the 6th (and arguably the best) play in Wilson extraordinary ten part “Pittsburgh Cycle”. Set in the 1950's Fences focuses on Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball. "One of the great characters in American drama. One of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theatre." - New York Post

THE PRODUCERS
April 14, 2017 - May 06, 2017

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

Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.

The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime For Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.
