Spring Awakening

Music by Duncan Sheik

In Germany, 1891, a world where the grown-ups hold all the cards, Wendla, Melchior and Moritz try to navigate their coming of age anxiety as each experience their first tastes of  love, despair, and rebellion.

The Most Happy Fella

From Frank Loesser, the composer of Guys And Dolls and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, comes this touching, dramatic, music-filled love story. Your heart will be warmed by this May-December romance when a city bride from San Francisco is wooed by an aging Napa Valley Italian grape farmer who nearly botches everything until his true goodness shines through. With a gorgeous score including such songs as “Standing on the Corner” and “Warm All Over” and spirited dancing, it’s a simple and touching love story that makes for extraordinary theater.
