Now Playing Onstage in Connecticut - Week of 12/09/2012 HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS...TRYING
SUFFIELD ACADEMY
12/13-12/15/2012
Power, sex, ambition, greed... it's just another day at the office. From the authors of GUYS AND DOLLS comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time.  A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.Winner of the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, HOW TO SUCCEED melds wit, comedy, and romance together to perfection. This show requires a large cast, featuring many roles for all types of performers.

Now Playing Onstage in Connecticut - Week of 12/09/2012 JOSEPH...DREAMCOAT (93' U.K. TOUR W/OPTIONAL `MEGAMIX`)
Curtain Call, Inc
11/16-12/15/2012
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. This version of JOSEPH?DREAMCOAT features extended songs and dances. The Megamix is available as a separate rental with this version.

YALE SCHOOL OF DRAMA
12/15-12/21/2012
One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.Act One follows the inarticulate Seurat as he fights a losing battle to maintain a relationship with his mistress Dot as he creates his painting ?A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte? amid the scorn of the artistic community. The second act takes place 100 years later, introducing us to his American descendant, also an artist, burned out and uncertain of the path he must take.An ensemble of strong singing actors performs this challenging and heartbreaking work about our need to connect to the past, present and future. The show features two coveted starring roles made famous by the Broadway performances of Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters. The groundbreaking book and score by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the authors of INTO THE WOODS and PASSION, contain some of their most beautiful and stirring work.The show may be staged simply as in its original workshop production or with the grandeur of Seurat?s masterpiece.
