Some of the most beloved storytellers in Connecticut history come alive for a yuletide gathering you won't forget. Famed actor and local legend William Gillette leaves his castle on the Connecticut River to adapt Dickens' holiday classic in the 1920s. Local heroes Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe and P.T. Barnum make spirited appearances opposite Gillette's Scrooge in a highly theatrical twist on a family favorite. Custom-made for Goodspeed with all original music, here's a tuneful, heartfelt confection spiced with enough Nutmeg State flavor to sweeten your season.
Yolonda is a tough girl from Brooklyn who's proud of her status as a true New Yorker. However, a family tragedy sends her to live in South Carolina with her grandmother, Mother Shaw. Surrounded by a circle of powerful women, Yolonda learns the "hat queen rules," awakening in her a deep sense of who she is and where she comes from. Crowns weaves together compelling stories and glorious gospel music to create a tapestry of voices that transcend time and place.
Cowboy Curly and farm girl Laurey are taking their sweet time falling in love. Can these stubborn romantics admit their feelings before it's too late? Passion, laughter, and high-kicking choreography blossom in a land where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain. The legendary score — including "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," "The Surrey With the Fringe on Top," and the rousing title tune — is by Richard Rodgers (music) and Oscar Hammerstein II (lyrics). Speaking of legendary, the original dances are by Agnes de Mille.
Welcome to the new world! Fresh from Ellis Island, a young mother and her son search for lost family and a sense of home as the 20th century beckons. The streets of Manhattan's Lower East Side may not be paved with gold, but they echo with the music of opportunity, optimism and hope. A ravishing score by the songwriters of Wicked and Annie colors a sweeping saga of America's immigrant past. Celebrate our rich roots in Goodspeed's new adaptation of a neglected masterpiece of the musical theatre.
