Next up, let us entertain you with GYPSY, the rags to riches story of Louise, an awkward young girl who rose to national fame as the burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee. Share the joy and heartbreak of sisters Louise and June as well as Rose, their pushy backstage mother who lived through her daughters. This thrilling musical brought together three greats of the American Theatre – Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim – who created unforgettable characters and a musical score that includes Let Me Entertain You, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, and If Mama Was Married. September 14 – October 29, 2017.

 

For the holidays we have the beloved family musical ANNIE. Based on the popular comic strip, ANNIE has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Before HAMILTON reinvented musical theatre, its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, wowed Broadway with his first musical. IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. March 15 – April 29, 2018.

 

We conclude our season with the musical adaptation of the classic film SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN.   Experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s golden age. It’s 1927, and Don Lockwood and Linda LaMont are the toast of Tinseltown until “talkies” come on the scene. Of course, you remember Gene Kelly splashing his way through the famous MGM film – the greatest movie musical ever made. But have you seen it live? Join us as we make a big splash with this spectacular and romantic musical comedy. There will be wonderful singin’ and dancin’ and, yes, it really will rain onstage! May 17 – July 1, 2018.

The John W. Engeman Theater presents Neil Simon’s PLAZA SUITE

(Northport, NY- May 19, 2014) – Announcing the cast and creative team for Neil Simon’s wonderfully funny comedy – PLAZA SUITE. Previews begin on Thursday, May 29th at 8:00pm. with the official opening on Saturday, May 31st at 8:00pm. and running through July 13, 2014.

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 their 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!”
