THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG
FEBRUARY 10-MARCH 12, 2023
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is Broadway & London’s award-winning smash comedy! Called “A GUT-BUSTING HIT” (The New York Times) and “THE FUNNIEST PLAY BROADWAY HAS EVER SEEN” (HuffPost), this classic murder mystery is chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania delivering “A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY” (Daily Beast). Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s “TONS OF FUN FOR ALL AGES” (HuffPost) and “COMIC GOLD” (Variety)–sure to bring down the house!
MARCH 3 – APRIL 2, 2023
SILENT SKY is a “simple reminder of what a pleasant, thought-provoking evening at the theater ought to look like. It’s a lively, funny, accessible play that’s alive with interesting ideas.” Arts Atlanta.
Based on the true story and science of early 20th century female “computers” at Harvard Observatory, this play by Lauren Gunderson follows Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own. But this brilliant, headstrong pioneer must struggle for recognition in the man’s world of turn-of-the-century astronomy. In this exquisite blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, a passionate young woman must map her own passage through a society determined to keep a woman in her place. Finalist for the Jane Chambers Award 2013.
RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S CINDERELLA
MARCH 31 – APRIL 30, 2023
“A timeless musical treasure! [Douglas Carter Beane’s] script crackles with sweetness and freshness.” – Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press
“A full-on romantic fantasy!” – Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
“Lavish family entertainment! This new Cinderella is still built around the lush score for which the Rodgers & Hammerstein version is fondly remembered, including the swoony waltz ‘Ten Minutes Ago’ and the plaintive ballad ‘In My Own Little Corner.’” – Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
“The cheeky humor of Beane’s book comes from imposing modern sensibilities (and contemporary lingo) on timeless storybook figures.” – Marilyn Stasio, Variety
“Cinderella is a timeless inspiration for young and old alike who want their dreams to come true.” – Robin Leach, Las Vegas Sun

URINETOWN: The Musical
February 17 & 18 @ 7:00pm
February 19 @ 1:00pm
DOUG SMITH PERFORMANCE CENTER
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a sidesplitting sendup of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny.
This is a full-length musical with an intermission, performed by the Senior Members of our Palace Performance Company.
