Ticket information

ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.

The storytelling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show.

Ticket information

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend –almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Falsettos

By William Finn and James Lapine, directed by Madison-Ainsley Miller

April 15-18, 2020 • 7:30 p.m.
April 19, 2020 • 2 p.m.

Falsettos is the story of a large, eccentric and dysfunctional – but loving – Jewish family in New York at the end of the 1970s. Initially, Marvin seems blessed with the perfect family. He has a caring wife, Trina, and a young son, Jason. Nevertheless, the family is soon broken apart, when the homosexual, Marvin, leaves Trina for a man called, Whizzer.

Trina, meanwhile, ends up romantically involved with the family psychiatrist, Mendel. All the while, their son, Jason, is stuck in the middle. Included in the mix are lesbian neighbors, Dr. Charlotte and Cordelia. When Marvin’s lover, Whizzer, is diagnosed with AIDS, the entire family – nontraditional as it may be – must put aside their issues and come together.
