Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, this brassy and colorful musical has been an iconic crowd-pleaser since it first hit Broadway in 1950. Infamous gamblers, woebegone yet determined missionaries, a troop of dancing showgirls, and one momentous craps game come together on the streets (and in the sewers) of New York City. This beloved multi-award-winner is a non-stop treat full of romance, hilarity, and irresistible charm.

Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick
From the combined talents of the creators of Fiddler on the Roof and Cabaret comes the musical romance that inspired the hit film You’ve Got Mail. Perfumery shop clerks Amalia and Georg have never quite seen eye to eye, but what they don’t know is that they have already fallen in love – through a “lonely hearts advertisement.” A true delight, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance.

Gretl – yes, that Gretl – is now a single mom living in modern day Chicago, still suffering from the trauma of her fairytale childhood. Her exceedingly modern kids are fed up with stuffing their pockets full of pebbles, and dream of the impossible: a normal childhood. But when long-lost Uncle Hansel shows up at their doorstep, they are plunged into an unexpected adventure that brings the family together. This smart and sassy new musical is a riotous tumble of past and present that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

Lyrics by Chad Beguelin
A, like, totally radical musical based on the hit film, this romantic comedy is a feel-good party that will have you dancing in your seat. The year is 1985 and Robbie Hart, a wannabe rock star, is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. When his own fiancée leaves him on the eve of the wedding, only the kindness of a winsome waitress can get him back in the groove. The only problem? Her upcoming wedding to a Wall Street shark. This retro gem features a lively and fun original score, and is a high-energy celebration of the 80s.
