Diana

World-Premiere Musical

February 19 - April 7, 2019 [New Extended Dates] | Mandell Weiss Theatre

Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro | Music and Lyrics by David Bryan

Choreographed by Kelly Devine | Directed by Christopher Ashley


In 1981, an assistant kindergarten teacher married the Prince of Wales and, overnight, became the most famous woman in the world. But behind the fairytale, there was a troubled marriage and a young woman struggling to find her voice. Facing an entrenched monarchy and unprecedented media scrutiny, Princess Diana surprises everyone – including herself – as she grows into a global phenomenon and manages to change the world.

Christopher Ashley and the writers behind the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis (Joe DiPietro and David Bryan) create this highly anticipated musical, featuring an epic and sweeping contemporary score.

My Fair Lady

Jul 7 - Jul 12, 2020

From Lincoln Center Theater that brought you The King & I and South Pacific, comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY.  Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was” (New York Times). 

Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.”  But who is really being transformed?

Rating: For ages 8+

The Taming of the Shrew

Jun 14 - Jul 19, 2020

“Come on, and kiss me, Kate.”

Can anyone “tame” the brash and headstrong Katherine? The dashing adventurer Petruchio thinks he’s the man for the job. Two of the sexiest spirits in all of world theatre set off sparks in a clash of wills that is as hilarious as it is outrageous. Shakespeare’s masterful comedic take on the battle of the sexes turns everything we think about love, marriage, and gender on its head. Director Shana Cooper brings to the Globe her daring and contemporary staging, which The New York Times praised as “an exhilarating new way to look at the comedy through modern eyes,” and The Wall Street Journal’s theatre critic called “the best Shrew I’ve ever reviewed.”

I was born. When I was 23 I started telling jokes. Then I started going on television and doing films. That’s still what I am doing. The end.
