2023 Season Lineup
The Last 5 Years More08/25/2023 – 09/16/2023
Written and composed by Jason Robert Brown
With music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown, this musical has captivated audiences and critics worldwide, earning a Drama Desk Award (music and lyrics) and a film adaptation. The Last Five Years is an intimate window into a couple’s brief and bittersweet marriage. Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a budding novelist on the brink of wild success, are 20-somethings in New York who meet, fall in love, marry, and divorce over the span of five years. Cathy tells the story from the end of their marriage; Jamie begins from when they first meet. As the musical unfolds, Cathy moves backward in time to the beginning of the relationship as Jamie moves toward the end; they meet only once, in the middle, at their wedding. Since its Off-Broadway premiere in 2002, Brown’s funny, poignant, and devastatingly honest two-person production has enraptured audiences worldwide with its spellbinding and emotional score and libretto.
The Moors More10/06/2023 – 10/28/2023
by Jen Silverman
A governess arrives in a remote corner of the Yorkshire moors to find a household of oddballs. Two sisters, a maid with identity issues, an old hound, and a moorhen are the only inhabitants of a house that creaks with creepy mysteries. Inspired by the letters of Charlotte Brontë, this black comedy written by Jen Silverman is an homage to the Brontës and a gothic pastiche in one.
