  10. March 2nd through April 8th No performance April 1st, due to the Easter holiday. Egotistical leading man, director, and producer Fred Graham is reunited with his ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi, when the two are forced to play opposite one another in a new production of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. The battle of the sexes continues onstage and off, as it becomes clear that, as much as this couple profess to hate each other, they are also still in love. Alongside their bickering liaison, the show’s supporting actress, Lois Lane, supports her gambling boyfriend, Bill, as he attempts to evade the the clutches of local gangsters. Throw in a number of cases of mistaken identity, the mob, and comedic routines into the mix and you get Kiss Me, Kate -- a dazzling Broadway classic that earned the very first Tony award for Best Musical. Directed by Peter Earle Music Direction by Chris Morris Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 PM; Sundays at 2 PM
  11. Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life. It highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus, as largely told from Judas’ perspective. The Tony Award-winning score includes hit songs “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Gethsemane,” “Heaven on Their Minds,” “Everything’s Alright,” “King Herod’s Song,” and “Superstar.” Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lyrics by Tim Rice. Directed by Stephen Colella and Rebecca Riley, Music Direction by Malcolm Granger, Choreography by Laura Shea.
