Driving Miss Daisy

May 26, 2017 - June 11, 2017

Set in mid-century Atlanta, Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of an elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, portrayed by four-time Emmy Award-winning actress Michael Learned (The Waltons), and her chauffeur, Hoke Colburn (Lance E. Nichols). At first, Daisy is none too happy about being forced to rely on a black man to get from one place to the next. Gradually, however, Hoke wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play, the two develop a deep-rooted affection. This Pulitzer-Prize winning masterpiece is a delicate depiction of racial tensions, the passage of time, and the experience of aging. Playwright Alfred Uhry creates two outsiders who come to a mutual respect grounded in each of their independence, strength, and stubborn integrity.

The Drowsy Chaperone

June 16, 2017 - July 02, 2017

Winner of 5 TONY Awards (including Best Book and Best Original Score), The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz age musical featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not so bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

I Love a Piano

July 07, 2017 - July 23, 2017

I Love a Piano is the celebration of the music of Irving Berlin. It follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to the present. Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life with over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, including classics such as ‘Blue Skies,’ ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business,’ ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz,’ Cheek to Cheek,’ ‘Always,’ ‘How Deep Is the Ocean,’ ‘Anything You Can Do,’ ‘God Bless America,’ and, of course, ‘I Love a Piano.’ Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love a Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern famously said had ‘no place in America music – he is American music.’

Love Letters

August 22, 2017 - August 27, 2017

Meredith Baxter & Michael Gross from Family Ties star in Love Letters by A.R. Gurney. Love Letters is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
