MISS YOU LIKE HELL    

August 14 – 30, 2020
Kansas City premiere! 

Book and Lyrics by Quiara Alegría Hudes. Music and Lyrics by Erin McKeown. Directed by Heidi Van. Starring Vanessa Severo.

When a whip-smart, deeply imaginative teenager agrees to take a road trip with her free-spirited Latina mother, neither can imagine where it will take them. Chance encounters with a medley of characters along the way brings them closer to understanding what sets them apart—and what connects them forever. Featuring compelling original songs that are every bit as diverse and eclectic as America, MISS YOU LIKE HELL is a new musical that exudes the joy, love and frustration of being a family in a changing country.

“Powerful and complex. A fresh take on the American road story, filled with people and ideas we rarely get to see onstage.” (The New York Times)

MOTHERS AND SONS  

November 6-22, 2020
Kansas City premiere! Directed by Jeff Church. Starring Nedra Dixon.

By Terrence McNally

MOTHERS AND SONS is about a woman who pays a surprise visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, she is finally able to see the rich life her son might have led.
“Fantastic! McNally captures a moment of hope and promise…MOTHERS AND SONS feels like the sun on your face.” (NBC New York)

MARIE AND ROSETTA

February 12-28, 2021
Kansas City premiere! Directed by Michael Grayman-Parkhurst. Starring Illeana Kirven.

By George Brant

Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta Tharpe was a legend in her time and a huge influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, and Ray Charles. MARIE AND ROSETTA chronicles her first rehearsal with a young protégée, Marie Knight, as they prepare to embark on a tour that would establish them as one of the great duos in musical history.
“Heavenly…you don’t have to be religious to know when you’re in the presence of glory.” (Time Out New York)

DISENCHANTED!

May 14-30, 2021
Kansas City premiere! Directed by Andrew Grayman-Parkhurst.

By Dennis T. Giacino

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. The original storybook heroines are none-too-happy with the way they’ve been portrayed in today’s pop culture, so they’ve tossed their tiaras and come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know – these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth.
“Riotous, hilarious, side-splitting! Should have poor Walt spinning in his grave!” (New York Post)

Performances are Wednesday-Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm
