This groundbreaking Obie-winning Off-Broadway smash also won multiple awards for its hit film adaptation.

BLITHE SPIRIT

JANUARY 19 - FEBRUARY 4, 2024

Written by Noel Coward

A smash comedy hit in London and New York, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives concerns fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, who has remarried but finds himself haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, Elvira. Clever, insistent and well aware of Charles' shortcomings, Elvira is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” the eccentric and flighty Madame Arcati. As everyone's personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed. She “passes over” and joins Elvira, allowing the two “blithe spirits” to haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

THE REVOLUTIONISTS*

FEBRUARY 15 - 25 2024

In the Fischer Studio

Written by Lauren Gunderson

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges; assassin Charlotte Corday; former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette; and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

*Stageworks Off-Script production, not included in the standard season subscription.

GYPSY

MARCH 1 - 17, 2024

Book by Arthur Laurents 

Music by Jule Styne 

Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim 

Suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee 

Considered one of Broadway’s all-time triumphs, Gypsy tells the story of ambitious showbiz mother Rose who treks her two daughters across the country in a cheeky, musical Vaudeville act. Rose begins to feel left behind as Vaudeville dies off and her children grow to resent her. Finally, she has to face that it is her own drive for success and not her children’s that has fueled her life’s choices and led to her loneliness.

Jane Austen’s comic novella about a young widow’s brilliant scheming in turn-of-the-century English society comes to life in Rob Urbinati’s delightfully witty stage adaptation. Lady Susan flees London and arrives at the country home of her obliging brother-in-law and his suspicious wife. Soon to come – uninvited – are an eligible suitor, her willful daughter, her chatty confidante, and a dimwitted bachelor.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES

JUNE 14 - 30, 2024

Book by Harvey Fierstein 

Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman 

Based on the play by Jean Poiret 

After 20 years of partnered bliss, Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better or worse, get a bit of both when Georges' son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the "family business": Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the star performer, "Zaza." Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as "normal" when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results.
