THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW World Premiere & More Announced for Greater Boston Stage Company Season 23

Greater Boston Stage Company will welcome audiences back for their 23rd season. "With shows like the locally-set Little Women, the World Premiere one-man adaptation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and the small-town comedy Popcorn Falls, Season 23 speaks directly to our audience and region without forgetting about the wider world in which we live." Reflects Producing Artistic Director, Weylin Symes.

"We are constantly balancing the fresh with the familiar here at GBSC and inviting our audiences to take a closer look at stories they think they might already know. LaDarrion Williams' brand-new play, Boulevard of Bold Dreams, is a perfect example of this as it imagines the night of Hattie McDaniel's history-making Academy Award win through the perspective of race, class, and gender in 1940s Hollywood. And, of course, sometimes we're also more than happy to just have a good time with the unforgettable songs of Beehive: The 60's Musical and the hilarious new adaptation of Clue."

As Symes says, "I love the balance of fresh and familiar, head and heart, silly and serious in Season 23. It feels like the perfect encapsulation of what we do here at GBSC."

Season 23 subscriptions are now on sale. For priority seating, lowest prices, concert and event discounts, and more...subscribe today! Single tickets go on sale Monday, May 16th 2022. Visit greaterbostonstage.org for more information.
