Show Description

Kick off NRTG's 100th season with a classic musical comedy - the winner of the first-ever Tony Award for Best Musical, Kiss Me Kate. In this Cole Porter tribute to the theatre, two divorced (and flamboyantly headstrong) performers find themselves starring opposite each other in a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew. Start the season off right, with a show that will give you equal parts wit, romance, comedy, passion, and Shakespeare.

Show Description

Perhaps the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off shows the audience the madcap insanity that afflicts a theatre company - both onstage and behind it - while they're working to put on a destined-to-flop show called Nothing's On. Quirky characters, unexpected relationships, door slamming, and more than a fair share of sardines will keep you laughing for the entire ride.

Show Description

Welcome to the Renaissance, where codpieces are the latest fashion trend and the biggest celebrity in England is a playwright named William Shakespeare. In a desperate attempt to out-Bard the Bard and keep their acting troupe afloat, Nick and Nigel Bottom seek out the help of a soothsayer, who looks ahead in time and tells them about a future with plays that have... singing! ...and dancing! ...sometimes at the same time! It's a hysterical, joyous, musical celebration of everything you love about Broadway!

Show Description

Considered by many to be "the perfect musical comedy," Guys and Dolls will have your toes a-tappin' and your belly laughin'. Gambler Nathan Detroi, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, and even into the sewers of NYC. This classic Broadway hit is the perfect way to close out our 100th season.
