Great news! We will be putting six shows on the stage this season, including three big musicals!

As always, we are offering special prices for a season package, but with a few important changes from earlier seasons.What we have now are Season Passes, which provide you with one "ticket" code for each of our six shows. You will not receive a booklet of tickets, instead each Season Pass will have a unique online code that you will use to make your reservations online. If you are not online, we will still be able to help you over the phone.

There are two Season Pass price levels for the 2017-18 season, Regular ($99) and Discount ($89). The Discount price level is for Seniors (60+), Active Duty Military, and Students/Children. We will require that you provide ID to support your discount when you arrive at the box office for a show. Purchasing a Season Pass gets you a ticket for all six shows, including the Summer musical and Christmas show, for the price of five!

We now have a new reservation system and you will be able to skip the Box Office when you purchase your tickets online! However, we will no longer be able to reserve unpaid reservations over the phone. Note that any credit card purchases, whether online or at our box office, will have a convenience fee added to the ticket price.

Plaza Suite

Show Dates: April 21, 22, 28, 29 May 5, 6 2017 at 7:30pm and April 23, 30 at 2:30pm

Plaza Suite

Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, "I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!"

Director: Don Boyd

Producer: Kellie Wallace

 

2016 - 2017 Season

Deathtrap

Deathtrap holds the record for the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway and was also nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.

When once-successful playwright Sidney Bruhl sees his latest Broadway effort bomb on its opening night, he tumbles into despair -- until he receives a package from his former student Clifford Anderson. Inside is an unproduced script that's better than anything Sidney has written in years. At the urging of his wife, Myra, Sidney undertakes a plan to lure Clifford to his country home, murder him and then announce the script as his own work.

Director Stuart Appleton

September 2016

Run For Your Wife

The story of London cab driver John Smith, with two wives, two lives and a very precise schedule for juggling them both. With one wife at home in Stockwell and another at home in Finsbury.

Trouble brews when Smith intervenes in a mugging. After being hit on the head, he ends up in hospital. This upsets his schedule and causes both wives to report him missing. Smith becomes hopelessly entangled in his attempts with his doltish ne'er-do-well neighbour downstairs in Stockwell, to explain himself to his wives and two suspicious police officers.

Director Carol Strandburg

The Little Mermaid

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."

July 2017

Of Mice and Men

This outstanding drama was very successful on Broadway and has become one of our most consistently popular titles. A tremendously moving study of the character of two roving farmhands, one of whom—"with the strength of a gorilla and the mind of an untutored child" —unwittingly murders a woman, and is killed by his friend to prevent his falling into the hands of the law.

September 2017

Annie

 Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including "Tomorrow."

December 2017

April 2018

Driving Miss Daisy

 Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play. A warm-hearted, humorous and affecting study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, soft-spoken black man. A long-run Off-Broadway success and an Academy Award-winning film. "The play is sweet without being mawkish, ameliorative, without being sanctimonious." —NY Times. "…a perfectly poised and shaped miniature on the odd-couple theme." —NY Post. "Playwrights Horizons has a winner in this one…gives off a warm glow of humane affirmation." —Variety. "DRIVING MISS DAISY is a total delight." —NY Daily News.
