ORLANDO

Sept 24 - Oct 6, 2019

From the novel by Virginia Woolf
Adapted by Sarah Ruhl

Directed by James Ijames

 

 

In Sarah Ruhl's captivating adaptation of Virginia Woolf's masterpiece, the spirited, freethinking nobleman Orlando embarks on "an epic adventure that transcends time, place and gender" (New York Times). After awakening from a seven-day slumber, Orlando finds himself transformed into a woman and must navigate society, artistry and desire from an entirely new perspective. This fantastical, gender-bending, period-hopping parable explores what it means to live in our own skin and in our own time.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Nov 12- 24, 2019

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Edward Sobel

 

Beware the forest outside Athens, where mischief reigns and faeries tease and torment. Shakespeare’s comedy of passion and power throws two mismatched couples into the fray of a lovers’ quarrel between the faerie king and queen — and soon they’re all entangled in enchantments.  Add to the mix the devious Puck and a hapless troupe of amateur actors, and mayhem abounds. This magical tale, boldly reimagined for our time, reveals the dangers of unbridled desire and the healing potential of the imagination.

MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG

March 17- 29, 2020

Book by George Furth
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Directed by Valerie Joyce

Sondheim’s witty and wistful fable about friendship, compromise and the price of success follows three idealistic artists whose lives pull them in unexpected directions. Featuring beloved songs like “Not a Day Goes By,” “Good Thing Going” and “Our Time,” this groundbreaking musical starts at the end and ends at the beginning, following the aspirations, trials and tribulations of this starry-eyed trio. As our last mainstage production in Vasey Theatre, Merrily We Roll Along invites audiences to look back on over five decades of fond memories while also dreaming ahead to the many marvels yet to come.
