ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS, 'VANYA AND SONIA', ROBIN HOOD and More Set for The Rep's 2014-2015 Season
The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis (The Rep) has announced its 2014-2015 season of performances on the Mainstage, as well as the three productions to be performed by its Imaginary Theatre Company (ITC). The three productions to be included in the Studio Theatre season will be announced in July.
The Mainstage series opens at the Loretto-Hilton Center for the Performing Arts, 130 Edgar Road (on the campus of Webster University), Webster Groves, on September 10, 2014 with the inventive and outrageously funny award-winning comedy by Richard Bean, One Man, Two Guvnors.
Other productions in the Mainstage series, which continues through April 2015, include: A Midsummer Night's Dream, one of William Shakespeare's most well-known romances; Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash, a spirited musical featuring songs from one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century; Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, a new adaptation of the award-winning film exploring family, culture and love by Todd Kreidler; The Winslow Boy, a moving drama by Terence Rattigan and based on true events surrounding how far one man will go for justice; and the laugh-out-loud Christopher Durang comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play.
The Rep's Imaginary Theatre Company season of live, professional theatre for young audiences will include The Emperor's New Clothes, Bah! Humbug! and Robin Hood.
