Jaeb Theater @ the Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Poisoned apples.  Glass slippers. Who needs ‘em?!  Welcome to the kingdom of ‘DISENCHANTED!’ princesses. These wonderfully empowered and funny women have come together in a vaudeville-variety show to tell the truth about living happily ever after. Together, with the brassy and all-powerful Snow White at the lead, this band of royal renegades storm the proverbial castle, all the while hilariously poking holes in the age-old tenets of The Princess Complex.  Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come to life to set the record straight.  

Not for the kiddies, folks!

Shimberg Playhouse @ the Straz Center for the Performing Arts

A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassinscombines Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America’s four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.

Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical “revusical” that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.

Shimberg Playhouse @ the Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Based on Lloyd Kaufman’s cult film and winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, The Toxic Avenger is a charming love story and laugh-out-loud musical that has it all: an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey mayor and two guys who play… well, everyone else … bullies, mobsters, old ladies and stiletto-wearing back up singers.  With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music and lyrics by David Bryan, the show also features the most memorable and unbelievable duet you’ll ever see on any stage.
