GYPSY 3

Patrick Dorow Productions Presents: Gypsy

March 16-31

Brought to you by the Blue Mermaid and the Dulong-Peters Family Trust, regarded by many theater professionals as the greatest musical ever created, GYPSY is the ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters’ success… while secretly yearning for her own. Set all across America in the 1920’s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, Arthur Laurents’ landmark show explores the world of two-bit show business with brass, humor, heart, and sophistication.

The celebrated score, by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim, boasts one glorious hit after another, including: “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You’ll Never Get Away from Me,” “If Momma Was Married,” “All I Need Is the Girl,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “You Gotta Get A Gimmick,” “Small World” and “Together Wherever We Go.”

The Clean House Banner 3

Threshold Stage Company Presents: 

The Clean House

April 13-29 

Threshold Stage Company presents The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl.  Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in 2004 and a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2005, Sarah Ruhl's comedy The Clean House will have you laughing out loud at the unexpected turns that life can bring.  The New York Times describes "The Clean House" as "a play that keeps revealing surprising insights, whimsical images and layers of rich feeling as it goes along; one of the finest and funniest plays you're likely to see."  The Clean House is an uproarious contemporary comedic fairy tale that seamlessly weaves a tapestry of relationships, life, love, death and the presumption of control and orderliness in a world that can be messy and unpredictable.  The talented cast of local, regional, and national actors under the expert guidance of A. Nora Long, the Associate Artistic Director of the award-winning Lyric Stage Company of Boston, will magically transport you into the wonderfully surreal, operatic and comedic work of The Clean House.
