Chess
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson

Two of the world's greatest chess masters battle it out at the world chess championship but their greatest contest lies beyond the boundaries defined by their ancient game. Amidst political intrigue and international conspiracies, the American and the Russian fight to win the heart of Florence Vassy in a romantic triangle mirroring the heightened passions of the Cold War all set to an explosive score by the composers of Mamma Mia and the lyricist of Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita.

The Pillowman**
By Martin McDonagh
With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman, centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

tick, tick...BOOM!*
Book, Lyrics and Music by Jonathan Larson
Jonathan Larson’s semi-autobiographical tale about a composer living the bohemian lifestyle and taking a hard look at his life on the eve of his 30th birthday. His girlfriend's desire to marry and leave New York City for the suburbs, possible career changes and all sorts of other pressures cause him to question his ultimate dream -- writing the great American musical. Containing the kind of powerhouse musical numbers that helped make Rent a smash hit, tick, tick... BOOM! is an endearing, engaging look at persevering to make your dreams a reality.

The Love List*
By Norm Foster
In this sidesplitting and thought-provoking new comedy, Leon and Bill concoct a list of attributes of the ideal woman - the top ten best qualities in a mate. When this allegedly "Ideal Woman" actually arrives on the scene the men quickly learn that their list could use a few revisions. Be careful what you wish for - especially in choosing a mate. This old adage leads to hilarious results in Foster's sparkling new comic hit.

Next to Normal

Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

Legally Blonde
Book by Heather Hach
Music and Lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin
Based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture

The humorous yet inspiring tale follows Elle Woods, a typical sorority girl who can't get enough pink in her wardrobe, whose main interests include shoes, shopping and her manicure appointment. But her superficial exterior hides a determined soul with the savvy to get her way and a surprisingly sharp wit. When her boyfriend dumps her for a more intellectual woman, Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. This unlikely academic ends up teaching the intellectual elite a thing or two, and finding true love along the way.

Noises Off
By Michael Frayn
Widely considered the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off reveals the hilarious backstage happenings during rehearsals and performances of a play dubbed Nothing's On. Award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn's comedy is a triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and even flying sardines, and it remains a crowd pleaser more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. Watch a manic menagerie of itinerant actors as they try to stitch together a sex comedy that's a sure flop, as out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure.

* - Contains strong language and sexual situations.
** - Contains strong language and mature subject matter. May not be suitable for all audiences.
