Four young lovers escape into the forest in defiance of parental commands. They wander into the fairy world, ruled by a King and Queen who happen to be quarreling. The King and his servant sprite Puck cause mayhem among the lovers with a magic potion, which also affects a group of six amateur actors, leading to hilarious conse - quences. Mistaken identities, love potions, mischievous sprites and seriously amateur acting weave together for an enchanting adventure.
This musical, with book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, is adapted from the 1970 musical film Scrooge which starred Albert Finney and Sir Alec Guinness. The miserly Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
The breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, adapted by Simon Levy. Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed, and danger.
Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso are in a Parisian cafe in 1904, just before the renowned scientist trans - formed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrat - ed painter set the art world afire with cubism. The two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects as well as other fanciful topics with infectious dizziness. A final surprise patron to join the merriment at the Lapin Agile is a charismatic dark haired singer time warped in from a later era.
A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor) to the great English farces of the 1930’s and 1940’s, The Fox on the Fairway is filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans. It’s a furiously-paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers’ classics and a charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with... golf.
