I Wont Be The Other Woman

4/10/2001 - 4/15/2001  
Godspell tells the story of the Gospel according to St. Matthew in an updated, contemporary way. It is an enactment of well-known parables, such as the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. This production of Godspell maintains all the values of the original production - the charm, the innocence, the fun. They have simply made the feel of the show more contemporary. The songs are the same, with a slightly modern edge, such as the music of the Dave Matthews Band or Jewel.

5/8/2001 - 5/13/2001  
Music, Dance, Theatre, Choreography or Performance Art? All of the above, and none of the above. STOMP is a movement, of bodies, objects, sounds - even abstract ideas. But what makes it so appealing is that the cast uses everyday objects, but in non-traditional ways. STOMP takes the everyday sounds of pipes and brooms, lighters and garbage pail lids, and creates the extraordinary.

Disney Presents Tim Rice & Elton John's Aida
3/27/2001 - 4/22/2001  

The story at the center of this contemporary AIDA is the same legend that became the libretto of Giuseppi Verdi's opera of the same name (commissioned by the Khedive of Egypt in 1869 for the 1870 opening of the Suez Canal, although it was not performed until 1871). It is the tale of a captured Nubian princess (played by Heather Headley) who becomes the handmaiden to the daughter of the Pharaoh, Princess Amneris (Sherie René Scott). Aida, whose noble rank is unknown to the Egyptians, falls in love with her captor, Radames (Adam Pascal), who is also Amneris's betrothed. Each of the three individuals is torn between love and their higher socio-political duty.

"Saturday Night Fever"
5/9/2001 - 5/13/2001  

Based on the phenomenal 1977 movie which prompted a cultural revolution and became the largest-selling soundtrack in history, Saturday Night Fever is a coming-of-age tale about young Tony Manero, who learns the value of life in 1977 Brooklyn. This stunning new stage musical is being produced by Robert Stigwood, who brought us the original movie and is directed and choreographed by Arlene Phillips, with settings by Robin Wagner and lighting by Andrew Bridge. The show features the Bee Gee's legendary score, including classics like "Night Fever," "Jive Talkin" and "Stayin' Alive" which retain their full power to thrill even two decades later. Also incorporated are hits "Tragedy" and "What Kind Of Fool" as well as two songs written especially for the stage "Immortality" and "First And Last." The stage adaptation is by Nan Knighton in collaboration with Arlene Phillips, Paul Nicholas and Robert Stigwood.

"Triple Espresso"
Music Box
10/17/2000 - 7/1/2001  
TRIPLE ESPRESSO - A HIGHLY CAFFEINATED COMEDY is set in the Triple Espresso Coffeehouse, where singer/pianist Hugh Butternut is celebrating his 25th anniversary as the house entertainer. He uses the occasion as a surprise reunion of his old comedy team, "Maxwell, Butternut & Bean." Throughout the show, we discover that Hugh and his two buddies from the 1970's had far more talent than they knew what to do with...literally. In hysterical flashbacks, they reenact their various attempts in show business. Their first gig as a trio, at the Historic North Platte Rodeo, was disrupted by a duststorm, but soon after, they made an unforgettable - though not quite center stage - appearance at Carnegie Hall. This was followed by a prime-time special on cable TV (in Zaire) and a national television debut on the Mike Douglas Show ("If only we hadn't done the dance number," Buzz mourns). Between Hugh's endearingly smarmy lounge act, Buzz Maxwell's deceptively clumsy sleight-of-hand, and Bobby Bean's runaway goofiness, the three keep audiences involved and laughing from start to finish. And what are they laughing at? Pure, clean humor that includes no profanity, no innuendo, and no insults. After seeing it once, many people return again and again - with friends, dates, clients, children, parents and grandparents. It's a comedy to share.
