ASC Shrew Tickets

This hilarious comedy is much more than a “battle of the sexes”; it is also a profound look at the necessity of “play” in our lives. This production includes Shakespeare’s Induction, which presents the Kate and Petruchio story as a play within the play. Blending romantic comedy and outlandish farce, Shakespeare gives us a love story of psychological liberation and the mysteries of being married.

Grand Night Tickets

Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers and Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. Innovative musical arrangements include a sultry Andrews Sister-esque "I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Outta my Hair", a swingin’ "Honeybun" worthy of the
Modernaires, a jazzy "Kansas City", and so much more  leaving no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.  Starring local  favorites, this show is one not to be missed!

Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Musical Arrangements by Fred Wells, Orchestration by Michael Gibson and Jonathan Tunick, Conceived by Walter Bobbie.  Originally produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, New York City, in 1993.
