Dig this. One of the most highly anticipated new musicals from one of the hottest writing teams on the planet, Beatsville has its world premiere at Asolo Rep next spring. It's Greenwich Village, 1959 – the world of underground coffee shops, goateed artists, turtle-necked poets, and bongo-playing jazzbos. Tragically square busboy Walter Paisley wants nothing more than to be one of the beatniks, but he has no artistic talent whatsoever. When he accidentally kills a cat and hides it in a lump of clay, "Dead Cat" is declared a masterpiece, and Walter a genius. More "sculptures" bring more acclaim – but will the world discover Walter's secret? Hip, rollicking, and bona fide hilarious, hang onto your berets – we're headed to Beatsville!
When it comes to wit, style, and sheer exuberant joy, Guys and Dolls is the odds-on favorite as the best musical comedy of all time. Set under the bright lights of Broadway and bustling with gamblers, gangsters, and sassy showgirls, Guys and Dolls features one of the greatest scores ever written by the legendary Frank Loesser, masterfully witty book and lyrics by Joe Swerling and comedy legend Abe Burrows, and those glorious Damon Runyon characters who have become classics in the world of musical theatre. The plot involves the unlikeliest of romantic pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a save-your-soul missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a craps game manager who is anything but. Place your bet on love conquering all in this hilarious classic that defined Broadway's Golden Age.

"It's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or to turn around and go back." Those are the words from renowned composer Jason Robert Brown about his first produced musical. Jason Robert Brown is well known for composing the music and writing the lyrics for The Last Five Years, 13, Parade and The Bridges Of Madison County. The pop, gospel and jazz score of this musical tells the story of a "new world", a world in which the definitions of family, distance, money, technology, the very nature of human contact, is changing every day.
