Directed by Jay Brock

Musical Direction by N. Thomas Pedersen

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, the musical focuses on the four March sisters — brassy Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth — and their beloved Marmee, at home in Concord, Massachusetts while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio. At its core it is a musical about family and the love that binds them together against all odds.

Directed & choreographed by Pauline Grossman

Musical Direction by N. Thomas Pedersen

When Hollywood offers New York novelist Stine the opportunity to adapt his books into a film for the silver screen, he packs up and moves to the home of perennial sunshine, palm trees, and stars. City of Angels moves between the beautiful Technicolor world of Hollywood and Stine’s glamorous film noir-in-progress of the same title. While Stine’s movie plays out in black and white, Stine finds the dangerous temptations of the world of Los Angeles – the distraction of women, the lure of fame, and the artistic compromises being made right and left – all too colorful.  Witty and glamorous, City of Angels features a sensational jazz score from the brilliant Cy Coleman, ingenious lyrics by David Zippel, and a multilayered story by Larry Gelbart.
