July 12–Aug 4: THE DROWSY CHAPERONE This play is a winner of five Tony Awards. As a shy, middle-aged theatre buff describes a fictitious 1928 hit musical called The Drowsy Chaperone, the quirky little musical springs to life in his living room.
Sept 13–Oct 6: SUITE SURRENDER Playwright Michael McKeever’s hilarious love note to the classic farces of the ‘30s and ‘40s, in which two of Hollywood's biggest divas arrive at the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel and are mistakenly checked into the same suite. Two overblown egos and a legendary feud set off fireworks.
Nov 15–Dec 15: A RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN CLASSIC MUSICAL By Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Title to be announced.
Jan 17–Feb 9, 2020: BILOXI BLUES Neil Simon’s dramatic comedy and coming of age tale was the winner of the 1985 Tony Award for Best Play. 19-year-old Eugene heads off for ten weeks of Army boot camp in Biloxi, Mississippi, in 1943. A fledgling writer, his notebook scribblings provide humorous snippets of life in the barracks.
Mar 20–Apr 12: A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER Book and Lyrics by Robert L. Freedman and Music and Lyrics by Steven Lutvak; based on a novel by Roy Horniman. It won four Tony Awards in 2014, including Best Musical. A distant heir to a family fortune plots to become the ninth Earl of Highhurst using his mischievous charm – and perhaps a dash of murder.
May 15–June 7: ONE SLIGHT HITCH In this contemporary comedy, it's Courtney's wedding day, and her mother, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom, the dress, the flowers, the décor, the food…until the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose.
