Holmes and Watson

by Jeffrey Hatcher

September 6 - 29, 2019

It’s been three years since Sherlock Holmes went over Reichenbach Falls and was declared dead. When Dr. John Watson receives a cryptic telegram stating that three asylum patients are each claiming to be the late Sherlock Holmes, Watson is compelled to investigate. Could Holmes really be alive after all this time?  

 

She Loves Me

book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and music by Jerry Bock

November 22 - December 21, 2019

A euphoric romantic comedy with a delightful score. Feuding perfume clerks work together begrudgingly by day, and write beautiful love letters to their “secret admirers” by night. Little do they know, the anonymous pen pals they are both falling for happen to be each other!

 

Tiny Beautiful Things

adapted by Nia Vardalos, from the book by Cheryl Strayed

January 10 - February 2, 2020

A richly funny, uniquely uplifting play based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed (Wild). When a struggling writer takes over the anonymous, unpaid advice column, Dear Sugar, she uses empathy and her personal experiences to help others through obstacles both large and small. Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers. 

 

Indecent

by Paula Vogel

April 3 - 26, 2020

Dive into the fascinating true story of Sholem Asch’s controversial play, The God of Vengeance, and the passionate artists who risked everything to bring it to the stage. Indecent celebrates the love, magic, and hope of the theatre even in the face of insurmountable adversity.

 

Arcadia

by Tom Stoppard

May 29 - June 28, 2020

Often hailed as the greatest play of our age, Arcadia, takes place in the drawing room of the Coverly estate across two distinct timelines. The intricacies of the relationships in each time weave a spectacular tapestry and the result is an utterly delightful dance to the music of time.

Arcadia runs in repertory with Ada and the Engine. Full schedules for these productions will be announced soon.

 

Ada and the Engine

by Lauren Gunderson

June 5 - 27, 2020

As the British Industrial Revolution dawns, we meet Ada Byron, a curious young woman and mathematician who is being pushed into a prestigious marriage. A story of love and intellectual soul mates, Gunderson’s take on the mother of modern computer science is endearing, with a few surprises up its sleeve.  

Arcadia runs in repertory with Ada and the Engine. Full schedules for these productions will be announced soon.
