In The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, an eclectic group of six adolescents, all played by adults, vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (possibly made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is one of the funniest musicals ever written.
The ultimate showbiz musical, 42nd Street celebrates Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make the magic of musical theater. Aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown, Pennsylvania, and soon lands her first job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But just before opening night, the leading lady breaks her ankle. Will Peggy be able to step in and become a star? The score is chock-full of Broadway standards, including "You're Getting to Be a Habit With Me," "Dames," "We're in the Money," "Lullaby of Broadway," "Shuffle Off to Buffalo," and — of course — "42nd Street." This production also includes a re-creation of the original choreography by Gower Champion.
A new tango-infused dance theater piece, Arrabal follows one woman's quest to understand the violence that took her father and disrupted a nation. Told through dance and the propulsive music of the band Bajofondo, the show features an ensemble and band direct from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Directed and co-choreographed by Sergio Trujillo (choreography, Invisible Thread, Memphis, Jersey Boys, On Your Feet!, Next To Normal) with music by Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel, The Motorcycle Diaries) and book by Tony Award nominee John Weidman (Contact, Assassins) Arrabal invites audiences into the underground world of Buenos Aires' tango clubs for a dance between the present and the past.
A chance meeting between an Italian-American farm wife and a world weary photographer leads to a soul-stirring affair in this lush, lyrical musical by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning team of Marsha Norman ('night, Mother) and Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Songs for a New World). Winner of two Tony Awards, this sweeping saga combines thrilling intimacy with near-operatic grandeur for a heart-rending reflection on love, loss, and acceptance.
Spiro Veloudos directs a fresh adaptation of this classic musical. The romantic yet ultimately tragic tale of King Arthur, Guenevere, Lancelot, and the Knights of the Round Table is brought into sharper focus, bursting with some of the greatest songs written for the stage, including "If Ever I Would Leave You," "I Loved You Once in Silence," and Camelot's title song.
Regarded by many as one of the greatest musical ever created, Gypsy is the ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters' success…while secretly yearning for her own. Set all across America in the 1920's, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, Arthur Laurents' landmark show explores the world of two-bit show business with artful humor, heart, and sophistication. The celebrated score, by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim, boasts one glorious hit after another, including: "Let Me Entertain You," "Some People," "You'll Never Get Away from Me," "All I Need Is the Girl," "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "You Gotta Get A Gimmick," and "Together Wherever We Go."
Featuring one showstopping song after another — "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "You Gotta Have a Gimmick," "Let Me Entertain You" — and based on Gypsy Rose Lee's memoirs, Gypsy is the story of Lee's rise to burlesque mega-stardom, with her stage mother — the iconic Mama Rose — behind the curtain. Continuing Lyric Stage's string of Sondheim musicals, Gypsy showcases the burgeoning lyric-writing abilities of the young composer and lyricist.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical parable about a boy in a vibrant coat of many colors whom God has blessed with the gift of dream interpretation.

Among them are "Those Canaan Days," "Any Dream Will Do," and "Close Every Door."
Director Maria Friedman's stunning London production of Merrily We Roll Along received the most five-star reviews in West End history and the Olivier Award for best musical to boot. Now she re-creates it for Boston audiences! Traveling backward in time over 30 years in the entertainment business, this cult favorite charts the relationships of close friends Franklin, Charley, and Mary. Along the way, it features some of Stephen Sondheim's most beautiful songs, including "Good Thing Going," "Old Friends," and "Not a Day Goes By."

On his continuing journey through the works of Stephen Sondheim, director Spiro Veloudos brings audiences Sondheim's latest work, Road Show, the true boom-and-bust story of two of the most colorful and outrageous fortune-seekers in American history. From the Alaskan gold rush to the Florida real estate boom in the 1930s, entrepreneur Addison Mizner and his fast-talking brother Wilson were proof positive that the journey to the American dream is often a seductive, treacherous tightrope walk.
Show Boat, based on Edna Ferber's bestselling novel, follows three generations of the Hawks family on the Cotton Blossom riverboat from 1887-1927. The story chronicles the fortunes of naive captain's daughter Magnolia and her troubled husband Gaylord Ravenal, and the lives of the performers, stagehands, and dockworkers whose lives are affected by the ever-changing social current along the Mississippi River. Show Boat, which was the first fully integrated book musical, tackles issues of unhappy marriage, miscegenation, and racial prejudice. The musical's classic songs — including "Ol' Man River," "Only Make Believe," "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man," and "You Are Love" — have become part of the Broadway canon.
Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years) has crafted a wonderfully varied and theatrical song cycle reminiscent of Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living In Paris. Artfully blending pop, jazz, and gospel in powerful solo and ensemble styles, this musical takes you on multiple journeys that result in that 'moment of decision' we inevitably face in our own lives. Featuring Broadway Tony nominee, Barbara Walsh (Falsettos, Company) and directed by Artistic Director, Robert Walsh.
