The Last Five Years
Book, Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Directed by Matt Giles
Music Direction by Julia Thornton
Featuring: Kody Bringman and Becca Orts

Before it became the feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, The Last Five Years began as a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by Time magazine. Told through inventive and heartrending songs, The Last Five Years is a two-person show that navigates the ins and outs -- the ups and downs -- of a marriage. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), this Drama Desk Award winner is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. There is, however, a twist: The man relives the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse. The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once -- at their wedding in the middle of the show.

EVITA
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Alicia Mendez
Argentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron 'saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military' was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

Barefoot in the Park
Written by Neil Simon
Directed by Isaiah Crowson
Newlyweds Paul and Corie are just starting their life together in a tiny fifth-floor Manhattan apartment. He's a straight-laced lawyer and she's a free spirit who's always looking for the latest adventure. Paul doesn't understand Corie's relaxed ways, and she wants him to be just a little more spontaneous. Something as simple as running "barefoot in the park" would be a start. Throw in a New York brownstone in disrepair, an eccentric neighbor and a surprise visit from Corie's mother, and watching the ups and downs of married life has never been so enjoyable. This Tony-nominated comedy from Neil Simon is filled with the playwright's trademark witty repartee and hilarious characters.

Deathtrap
Written by Ira Levin
Directed by Danny Miller
The long-running Broadway hit Deathtrap has been slaying audiences for years with its mix of laughs and edge-of-the-seat suspense. Written by Ira Levin (The Stepford Wives, Rosemary's Baby), it's the story of Sidney Bruhl, a once-successful playwright struggling to overcome a "dry" spell that has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. Fortuitously, he receives a script from a student at one of his college seminars and instantly sees a potential Broadway hit. Once the two start collaborating, suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter that you'll be enthralled until the show's final, startling moments.
