Broadway Series

Chicago

Chicago

October 13, 2018

Chicago, which opened to rave reviews on November 14, 1996 and now in its 20th year on Broadway, is the longest running AMERICAN musical and shows no sign of ever slowing down! Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording. Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the “celebrity criminal.”

Spamalot

Monty Python's Spamalot

November 12, 2018

The Tony Award winning Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot, begins its search for the Holy Grail in the Fall of 2018. This outrageous musical comedy is lovingly ripped off from the film classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” with a book by Eric Idle and music and lyrics by the Grammy Award winning team of Mr. Idle and John Du Prez, Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and show-stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons audiences worldwide are eating up SPAMALOT!

Love Letters

Love Letters

February 23, 2019

Two of TV’s all-time biggest stars share an evening with the Valentine audience on February 23rd. Barbara Eden of “I Dream of Jeannie” and Hal Linden of “Barney Miller” star in a modern American Classic: boy meets girl. Girl writes to boy. Girl and boy correspond throughout their lives. Love Letters, A.R. Gurney’s beloved play about two people who grow up in love with each other's writing, is as much a celebration of the power of the written word as it is to love itself. Poetic, elegant, funny and profoundly touching, Love Letters shows that, despite how things seem, what divides us is rarely as powerful as what connects us.

Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde

March 31, 2019

Fabulously fun and international award-winning Legally Blonde - The Musical is the ultimate Broadway tribute to Girl Power!

This contemporary, sassy musical moves at a breakneck pace driven by memorable songs and explosive dances. Legally Blonde - The Musical warms the heart by proving that self-discovery can be way too much fun and hilarious to boot. Based on the beloved movie, Legally Blonde - The Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway’s brightest new heroine and, of course, her Chihuahua, Bruiser.

Choir of Man

The Choir of Man

October 21, 2018

“Welcome to The Choir Of Man – the best pub concert you’ve ever been to...” The Choir of Man is the runway hit of the Edinburgh Fringe 2017 from the creative minds of Nic Doodson and Andrew Kay This show is 60 minutes of unadulterated entertainment that combines high energy dance, live music and foot stomping choreography with the incredible talent of 9 ordinary guys who perform everything from sing-along classics to classic rock. Imagine the greatest pub gig you’ve ever been to and multiply it by 10 and you’ll still be nowhere near the fun that this show exudes throughout. Featuring pub tunes, folk, rock, choral and opera numbers, the 9 guys showcase music that has wide appeal. The cast features world class tap dancers, tumblers, singers, instrumentalists and even the reigning BBC UK Poetry Slam champion, ensuring that there is something for everyone in this joyous and uplifting show for all ages. Not only is the concert set in a pub, but it has a real working bar from which the cast will pull pints and invite audience members to get up close and personal with the show – witnessing the action from chairs and tables among the guys – come ready to drink in the action! - Broadway Baby ”A feast for the senses, Choir of Man will have you dancing down the aisles. Leave your worries in your coat and grab a pint!” - One4Review

Captain of the Crossing Guards

Captain of the Crossing Guards

August 17 - 19, 2018

Captain of the Crossing Guards tells the story of a 6th grader named Monica who needs to choose her crossing guard captain successor from 6 potential candidates. This decision is one of biggest she's ever had to make in her young life. Thanks to wise advice from Mr. Roosevelt the bus driver, Mrs. Bentley the school principal, and her future self, Monica is able to make a decision that satisfies everyone. The show has been a work in progress since 2017. The cast, composer, vocal director, and director "workshopped" the show before starting rehearsals. The author Gretchen Zyndorf is also a former elementary school teacher in Rossford, so her experiences inspired the show. CG is a great show for the entire family, especially children aged 4-11, with its snappy dialogue, physical humor, and charming score.
