Bay Street Theater and Sag Harbor Center for the Arts have announced two shows from their upcoming mainstage season, which kicks off with Frank D. Gilroy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning family drama, The Subject Was Roses, slated to run May 28 – June 16.

John Slattery, wife Talia Balsam, and their son Harry Slattery will play a Bronx family in 1946, coping as their son returns from war. Tony Award winner Scott Wittman will direct.

The mainstage season will close with Young Frankenstein, set to perform August 1-25. With music and lyrics by Mel Brooks (who co-wrote the book with Thomas Meehan), Young Frankenstein is based on the 1974 comedy film that takes Mary Shelley’s gothic horror story for a roll in the hay. Stuart Ross is slated to direct, with choreography by Gerry Mcintyre. This new production is presented in association with Berkshire Theatre Group and Geva Theatre.

A third production, set to run June 25 through July 20, will be announced at a later date.
