Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 4/20/2014 LES MISERABLES
STREETCAR COMPANY
4/25-4/27/2014
This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.Epic, grand and uplifting, LES MISÉRABLES packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, LES MISÉRABLES is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made LES MISÉRABLES a popular masterpiece.

Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 4/20/2014 AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
The Players' Ring Theatre
4/18-5/4/2014
The movie shows a bright and beautiful outside, but Letts's play is set in a hot, dark, cramped house, where during one Oklahoma August, the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites. They gather to find out where, maybe even why, their head-of-house Beverly Weston, a lapsed poet, has chosen to vanish. Given his pill-popping wife, Violet, and the rest of the family's many shady secrets, the family homestead implodes with the weight of unwanted truths. It's a family whose love has become irony, who all suffer from 'the Plains,' - a condition much like the Blues. Alan Huisman directs this major new play, which unflinchingly - and uproariously - exposes the dark side of the American family. Sanford Farrier and Carol Davenport play Beverly and Violet Weston. The other players are, in their pairs: Peggi McCarthy and Cary Wendell, Helen Brock and John Tullgren, Laurie Torosian and Michael Stailey, Megan Davenport Karas and Joseph Bodnar. Samantha Bagdon plays granddaughter Jean, and Liz Locke plays Johnna, the housekeeper.
