Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 5/04/2014 THE MUSIC MAN
ACTORSINGERS OF NASHUA, INC
5/9-5/11/2014
An affectionate paean to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - this despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. Perfect for professional theatres, community groups, summer stock and schools alike, this award-winning, critically acclaimed Broadway classic is an all-American institution, thanks to is quirky characters, charmingly predictable dramatic situations, and one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads which have become popular standards. The cast features a soaring soprano ingenue, parts for young performers and children, and one of the musical theatre's treasures, a tour de force leading role for a charismatic actor who doesn't need to be a trained singer. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN is family entertainment at its best.

Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 5/04/2014 DESDEMONA & ZOO STORY
Theatre KAPOW
5/9-5/11/2014
Desdemona's frantic search for her infamous missing linen sparks Vogel's search for what it means to be a woman. Struggling valiantly against class barriers, sexual repression and dirty laundry, can Desdemona chart her own course? In this smart, sexy, funny behind-the-scenes take on Shakespeare's Othello, Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel gives us a glimpse of "real" life on Cyprus and what really goes on behind closed doors while Othello is being destroyed by his jealousy. Desdemona pines for a better life without the restrictions of traditional society, all the while egging on her pious maid, Emilia. When Bianca, the town whore, shows up and reveals a secret or two, things start to fall apart as we careen towards the dramatic finale that brings Desdemona together with Othello. The Zoo Story is the play that launched the career of one of America's most celebrated playwrights, three-time Pulitzer Prize winner and recent recipient of the Edward MacDowell Medal, Edward Albee. It tells the tale of a chance meeting between two men on a bench in the middle of Central Park. Peter is a complacent executive comfortably reading in the park when Jerry, an aggressive loner who has just come from the zoo, badgers him into conversation. An innocent conversation turns to deal with human isolation, loneliness, class differences, and the dangers of inaction within American society.
