FRANKIE & JOHNNY IN THE CLAIRE DE LUNE by Terrence McNally
March 29 - April 8
A contemporary American classic and (with the possible exception of Lanford Wilson's TALLEYS FOLLY) probably the greatest romantic comedy of the latter half of the 20th Century. A love story about two ordinary people. What begins as a one-night-stand between a short-order cook and a waitress becomes a tug-of-war between one who sees a future of endless love and adventure between them and one who is terrified of being hurt again, with some of the most beautiful music ever written playing in the background on a classical radio station.
LENI by Sarah Greenman
May 17 - 27
In a limbo somewhere between life and death, Hitler's chosen filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl (director of TRIUMPH OF THE WILL and OLYMPIA) confronts her younger self and the moral and artistic choices she made as the two attempt to create one final film to vindicate her life's work and the uses to which it was put by a fascist regime. A searing examination of narcissism, denial, and artistic responsibility starring Bridge Street Theatre favorite Roxanne Fay.
THE REVENGE OF THE SPACE PANDAS or BINKY RUDICH AND THE TWO-SPEED CLOCK by David Mamet
July 12 - 22
A major community effort, mixing students, local artists, and professional performers. A play for children (and their adults) written, unexpectedly, by an American playwright far better known for his searing (and frequently profane) dramas. A boy scientist, his female sidekick, and a sheep named Bob find themselves transported to the planet Crestview, patrolled by an army of Space Pandas and ruled over by a preening narcissist named George Topax who'll stop at nothing to become the only man in the Goose Nebula to possess a wool letterman's sweater. Can a nearly-forgotten film star rescue the earthlings from being whacked out with a giant pumpkin? The suspense may kill you!
THERE IS A HAPPINESS THAT MORNING IS by Mickle Maher
September 6 - 16
Two undergraduate lecturers on the poetry of William Blake, having engaged in a highly inappropriate display of public affection on the main lawn of their rural New England campus, must now, in class the following day, either apologize for or justify their behavior if they want to keep their jobs. Mickle Maher's scathingly funny comedy, written entirely in rhyming couplets, is an unexpectedly raucous celebration of art and ardor.
CASSE NOISETTE by Michael Whistler
November 8 - 18
The world premiere of a play by Philadelphia-based playwright Michael Whistler. CASSE NOISETTE (The Nutcracker) juxtaposes the final years of the life of composer Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky with a contemporary story about a closeted high school teacher obsessed with Tchaikovsky's music. Sugar Plum fairies and phone sex workers collide in this tale of discovering the strength to be true to one's self, no matter what the cost.
On February 24 Tony nominee, Drama Desk Lifetime Achievement honoree, and two-time MAC Award winner, Charles Busch, returns to BST accompanied by long-time musical director (and Catskill resident) Tom Judson for a special benefit performance. In MY KINDA '60s, Charles weaves tales of his Manhattan childhood and adolescence during those tumultuous years with music from the decade by Burt Bacharach, Jimmy Webb, the Beatles, Henry Mancini, Bob Dylan, Stephen Sondheim and Kander and Ebb, among others. A nostalgic look back from a consummate cabaret entertainer. Subscribers will have an opportunity to purchase tickets to this event and select their seats before they become available to the general public.
AND ALSO - discounts on many other events at Bridge Street Theatre, including:
DRIVING MISS DAISY by Alfred Uhry. Directed by Flo Hayle
