The Fantasticks has the distinction of being the longest-running musical in the world. It opened in 1960, played for 42 years, and was quickly revived. With imaginatively simple staging, it tells the story of two fathers, next-door neighbors, and their elaborate scheme to bring their son and daughter together. Its iconic songs include “Try to Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain.” Director Ted Pappas will bring his special touch with great musicals to this stage phenomenon.

This theatrical valentine, written for a gala given by Queen Elizabeth I, is aglow with spirited females and romantic fun. After a shipwreck, outspoken Viola washes ashore and disguises herself as a boy. Believing the masquerade, beautiful Olivia falls head over heels in love. Meanwhile Duke Orsino passionately pursues Olivia and Viola falls for him! All of Illyria is mad with merry mix-ups and not even the pompous Malvolio can stop the party in Shakespeare’s great comedy.

This two-actor musical has a potent pedigree. The cherished 1912 novel became a popular movie starring Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron, and went on to be the first Off-Broadway show ever to be live-streamed. Set in the early 20th century, Jerusha is an orphan whose college tuition is paid for by a mysterious young benefactor. His only condition is that she write him letters, a stirring exercise which awakens her to literature and love. With its beguiling contemporary score, theater and popular music fans will be thrilled to discover this new charmer.

Willy Loman is the most famous traveling salesman in history. In this Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play from 1949, when Willy is downsized by his young boss, he caves under the strain of not being able to make ends meet. Lyrical and intense, the action shifts between memories of Willy’s glory days and his crumbling relationship with sons Biff and Happy. Staged by the director of Freud’s Last Session at The Public, Arthur Miller’s masterpiece about aging, economics, and the American Dream has retained all its relevance and power.

Starring Andrew Polk as Willy Loman
