Guys and Dolls

Jul 2 - Aug 13, 2017

Guys and Dolls tops Entertainment Weekly's list of the Greatest Musicals of All Time, and for good reason: it's everything we love in musical theatre. Now fast-rising director/choreographer Josh Rhodes returns to the Globe to direct our first-ever production of this Broadway masterpiece. Based on Damon Runyon's famous tales of small-time hoods and showgirls, Guys and Dolls is filled with some of the most wonderful showtunes ever, including "Luck Be a Lady," "I've Never Been in Love Before," and the irrepressible anthem "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat." Guys and Dolls will put a spring in your step and a smile on your face and remind you how much fun it is to see a top-notch Globe revival of a classic American musical!

The Old Man and The Old Moon

May 13 - Jun 18, 2017

"This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded," says Ben Brantley of The New York Times. Now, after delighting audiences in New York, Chicago, and Boston, The Old Man and The Old Moon makes its West Coast premiere. The Old Man tends to The Old Moon, refilling the light that spills out every night. When his wife unexpectedly leaves home, The Old Man abandons his post and plunges the world into darkness. His eventful journey across land, air, and sea to find her reminds them - and us - of the unwavering power of love. Discover why BroadwayWorld dubbed the production "a glorious fusion of music and theatrics," and TheaterMania called it "extraordinarily imaginative - a rare example of true theatre magic!"

The Imaginary Invalid

May 27 - Jun 25, 2017

The acclaimed artists of Fiasco Theater are back! Fiasco delighted Globe audiences with their reinvented Into the Woods, and now they take on one of the greatest comedy writers of all time: Molière. In the outrageously funny masterpiece The Imaginary Invalid, the hypochondriac Argan wants his daughter to marry a doctor so he can save on his medical bills. But she's in love with someone else. Soon the whole household joins in her madcap scheme to save true love and give Argan's doctors a dose of their own medicine. This Globe-commissioned world premiere adaptation will have you in stitches. The New York Times called Fiasco "a force to reckon with in American theater."
