Stephen Sondheim's "Company"
March 16-19, 2021
PNC Arts Annex
It’s Bobby’s 35th birthday party and all of his friends keep asking, why isn’t he married? Why can’t he find the right girl and isn’t it time to settle down and start a family? As Bobby searches for answers, he discovers why being single, being married, and just being alive could drive a person crazy. Boldly sophisticated, deeply insightful, and downright hilarious, COMPANY features Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning songs “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Side by Side by Side” and the iconic “Being Alive.”
Let’s all drink to that.
Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein"
March 5 - April 5, 2020
Short North Stage
I was raised on Mel Brooks and Monty Python, so I'm honored to FINALLY do one of my favorite Brooks classics.
Monstrously entertaining, this musical adaptation of Mel Brooks’ classic movie comedy follows Frederick Frankenstein, grandson of the infamous inventor Doctor Frankenstein, on a visit to the family estate he’s inherited in Transylvania.
With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick named Igor and voluptuous lab assistant Inga, Frederick finds himself following in the mad-scientist tradition of his ancestor, creating a monster for this century. When the monster escapes, hilarity abounds. London reviewers called it “a love letter to American vaudeville” and “an evening of gloriously impure fun.”
The Saturday, April 4, 3pm show will include ASL interpretation. Please call the box office to access the reserved seating area in line with the interpreters.
The Saturday March 28, 3pm show will offer professional audio description and listening devices.

The Last Five Years
May 8 - May 17, 2020
Presented by Imagine Productions
From Wikipedia: "A musical written by Jason Robert Brown... The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy's story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie's is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect."
