Classic Stage Company, under the leadership of Artistic Director Brian Kulick and Executive Director Greg Reiner, has announced plans for its 2014-15 season.

In October, the company will stage Rodgers & Hammerstein's Allegro, directed by Tony Award winner and CSC Associate Director John Doyle. The musical, Rodgers & Hammerstein's third collaboration, premiered on Broadway in 1947.

Allegro will be followed in January by Shakespeare's Hamlet, starring Peter Sarsgaard, who previously appeared at CSC in Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and Three Sisters with his wife, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. The director of this production will be announced in the future.

The season concludes in April with Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus, directed by Andrei Belgrader and starring Chris Noth, who was most recently seen on the New York stage in a Broadway revival of That Championship Season.

The CSC season will also include a "special series." In November, CSC will turn its attention to Anton Chekhov, taking theatergoers behind the scenes to investigate his breakout masterpiece The Seagull. Then in March 2015, CSC's Young Company will return to its inaugural production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Also in March, a trilogy of Euripedes' tragedies adapted by Charles Mee — Iphigenia in Aulis, The Trojan Women, and Orestes — will be presented.

Classic Stage Company is an off-Broadway theater committed to reimagining the classical repertory for a contemporary American audience.
