Richmond CenterStage - Carpenter Theatre

On October 1, Bill released his third hour special, You People Are All The Same, for download exclusively through his website. The special is also available on Netflix in the U.S., Canada, Ireland and the U.K. Bill is selling out theaters internationally.

Sandler Center for the Performing Arts

Featured in many films and commercials, the mysterious enchantment of Aquarium and elegance of The Swan may be easily recognized; but can you guess the other animals portrayed in each movement of Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals? Another familiar piece from many a soundtrack, Ravel's unrelenting rhythmic forces in Bolero will have you perched on The Edge of your seat from the first soft strains to the boisterous conclusion. Also featured on this program are the sensuous tones of Debussy's La Mer, and sisters Christina and Michelle Naughton, who will delight you with the charming Concerto for Two Pianos by Poulenc.

Now Playing Onstage in Norfolk - Week of 1/19/2014 ANNIE GET YOUR GUN (STONE)
Lake Braddock Secondary School
1/23-1/26/2014
ANNIE GET YOUR GUN scored a bulls eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. As Newsday reported, Stone's revisions 'are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream.' Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better' love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. Stone has added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank's bothersome assistant Dolly, and a boy who is (to Dolly's horror) part Native American. 'The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster,' reported Time Magazine, 'without losing all the fun.' Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit. 'Irving Berlin's greatest achievement in the theater,' wrote the New York Post, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN 'will always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theater's enduring triumphs.'Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin; Original Book by Herbert Fields & Dorothy Fields; As Revised by Peter Stone

Generic Theater
1/17-2/9/2014
One of the last great publishing companies of the world, Joshua Maynard Books, is under attack. When its legendary founder departs, it sets up an epic battle of wills and wits between his daughter and the two talented editors grasping the reins of power. She must choose which will save the company: the artistic idealist or the cutthroat businessman? If "The West Wing" were set in New York, it might look like "Endpapers," which NY Magazine calls a "breathlessly fast, funny, and thoughtful comedy."
