Now Playing Onstage in Philadelphia - Week of 5/11/2014 CANDIDE
EPHRATA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
5/1-5/17/2014
Featuring a legendary score by Leonard Bernstein, CANDIDE is perhaps the most oft revived of the classic cult musicals. Part sophisticated operetta, part wacky screwball comedy with shades of Monty Python, this funny, irreverent satire is the perfect musical expression of Voltaire's tongue-in-cheek send-up of optimistic philosophies.In one lightning-paced act, the hapless bastard cousin Candide is expelled from home, drafted into the Bulgarian army, brought before the Spanish Inquisition, swindled out of a fortune, shipwrecked on a desert isle, and separated time and again from his true love Cunegonde, who bears with remarkable dignity a variety of carnal besmirchments by almost everybody. Through it all, Candide remembers the lesson of his dear master Dr. Pangloss: that "everything is for the best in this best of all possible worlds."

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.

Written by Tony-nominated composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa (THE ADDAMS FAMILY, THE WILD PARTY) and award-winning book-writer and lyricist Brian Crawley (VIOLET), A LITTLE PRINCESS is the story of a little girl with a great big imagination. A LITTLE PRINCESS, which features an updated script, score, orchestrations, and new material, is based on Francis Hodgson Burnett's children's novel, popular since the late 19th century. The story has been made into several films, including the darling little Shirley Temple Fox film in 1936.Separated from her father, and the open-hearted Africans who have helped him raise her, young Sara Crewe is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her there, her imaginative powers come to the rescue - helping to transform a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery. As the girl wins the affection of the other boarders she draws the ire of Miss Minchin, the dour headmistress; Sara is made a servant to the institution when her father is reported dead, and his fortune seized. Sara counters all Miss Minchin's best efforts to degrade her with the grace and virtue of a little princess.A new version of A LITTLE PRINCESS premiered with a concert staging at Texas State University October 16-19, 2011. The Texas State University production,

Should he succeed in passing Uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn, or else to the gun-toting wife of the casino owner! First produced at Playwrights Horizons off-Broadway (Richard Rodgers Award) the show later went on to win Washington's Helen Hayes Award for Best Musical, and is now performed frequently across the country.For complete information on this and  other Ahrens and Flaherty shows, as well as links to purchase CDs, vocal  selections and other publications, please go to www.AhrensandFlaherty.com.

Now Playing Onstage in Philadelphia - Week of 5/11/2014 URINETOWN
CIVIC THEATRE OF ALLENTOWN
5/2-5/18/2014
One of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years, URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, URINETOWN is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, URINETOWN catapults the "comedic romp" into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

Now Playing Onstage in Philadelphia - Week of 5/11/2014 JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Warren Players
5/15-5/18/2014
It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent '60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Southeast Delco School Dist., Academy Park High School
5/9-5/18/2014
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Adapted for the Stage by Tom Briggs; From the Teleplay by Robert L. Freedman
