A musical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet featuring the incendiary songs of Jeff Buckley. That light in yonder window is still the east and Juliet is still the sun...but the sound in her bedchamber is all new: the sweeping, emotional, and extraordinarily beautiful songs of the late rock icon. This unique work of theater is a remarkable fusion of the classic and the modern, melding Shakespeare's tragedy, in its original text and period, with some of the most passionate rock music of the past 20 years, staged with limitless invention by Alex Timbers, one of the true stage visionaries at work today.
Previews Sept. 22-Oct. 5, opens Oct. 6, closes Nov. 3.
Tickets start at $29. See last page for performance schedule.
November 9 - November 17, 2013
Weaving wit, romance, and comedy, Much Ado About Nothing is a whirlwind race to the finish line of "happily ever after." Everyone can see that confirmed bachelor Benedick and headstrong Beatrice are meant for each other-except for Benedick and Beatrice themselves. Love may conquer all, but not without a few battles along the way, and the verbal sparring between these two lovers have never been so much fun to watch!
Opens Nov. 9, closes Nov. 17.
Tickets: $19 for the general public, $16 for students, seniors, and military, $8 for USD students. See last page for performance schedule.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a wonderful, whimsical musical based upon the classic Dr. Seuss book.
