MAINSTAGE SEASON

Finding Mona Lisa
By Michael McKeever
July 12 – August 13, 2017

In his newest play, Carbonell Award-winning playwright Michael McKeever explores the history of the world’s most famous painting, including Leonardo da Vinci’s meeting of Senora del Giocondo (Mona Lisa) and his masterful creation of her indelible countenance. This historical, funny and intriguing new piece presents highlights throughout the painting’s infamous past, including her vandalism, her theft, her journey to America (at the request of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy) and the various places she spent her storied lifespan, including hanging in Napoleon’s bedroom, before her final resting place at the Louvre.



Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre
2017 - 2018
MAINSTAGE SEASON
Evita
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

October 25 – November 26, 2017 (English Language Run)
November 30 – December 17 (Spanish Language Run)

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, Eva Duarte Perón. It follows her journey from fatherless child, to ambitious actress, to the most powerful woman in Latin America and eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at age 33. This musical theatre masterpiece fuses evocative chorales with exuberant Latin pop and jazz influences, creating an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as Eva Perón herself. Actors’ Playhouse is thrilled to reprise Evita, one of the most significant productions in our 30-year history, in both English and Spanish.


Noises Off
By Michael Frayn

January 17 – February 4, 2018

Did you ever wonder what happens behind the scenes during the producing of a play? Well, we found your answer. Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing and performing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” This uproarious farce features lovers frolicking, doors slamming, clothes being tossed this way and that, with both on stage and back stage hilarity. Noises Off is a sidesplitting festival of delirium that will delight our audiences as part of our 30th Anniversary Season.

Million Dollar Quartet
Book by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux

Inspired by the music of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins

Actors’ Playhouse proudly presents the return of the high voltage Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet (and the critically acclaimed cast!) for our 30th Anniversary Season. One of the longest running shows in our company’s history, Million Dollar Quartet was inspired by the famous photo and phenomenal true story of the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time in their careers. Million Dollar Quartet brings the heart and soul of that legendary night to life with an irresistible tale of excitement and passion featuring 21 timeless hits by these four legendary artists.


The Big Bang
Music by Jed Feuer and book and lyrics by Boyd Graham

July 25 – September 2, 2018

In this whirlwind musical, two comedy writers try to raise enough “dough” for the most historically expansive show ever conceived, about the ENTIRE history of the universe. In a record 90 minutes, both actors are put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this insane frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors’ unrealistic hopes and aspirations. The Big Bang has become the most asked about show in our 30-year history, and yes, we’re bringing it back with a BANG just for you!
