WINGS, the musical in Broadway WINGS, THE MUSICAL
The Spirit of Broadway Theater
In her adventurous youth, Emily was an aviatrix who fearlessly walked on the wings of the family biplane. Just as she once plummeted dizzyingly through space, she is now falling through inner space as the result of a stroke. This extraordinary musical takes us inside Emily's mind as this gallant woman gropes her way toward the cave of memory, away from the scrambled words and short-circuited thoughts that hold her captive. With breathtaking simplicity, WINGS charts Emily's hesitant recovery as she begins regaining the vocabulary to accompany her reawakened emotions. But a relapse hurls her back into the void, this time to face death. In this musical's exultant view, however, Emily has merely taken flight once again, the curiosity and bravery that prompted her girlish exploits having seized her anew.

The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts
DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE by Sarah Ruhl Directed by Alicia Dempster The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts announces their final show of the 2012 season, the comedy, Dead Man's Cell Phone, written by Sarah Ruhl and directed by Alicia Dempster. While at a cafe, a man dies but his cell phone will not stop ringing. The woman at the next table answers his ringing phone and is soon playing comforter to the man's grieving friends and family. In the course of meeting these people, she falls in love with the dead man's brother and becomes ensnarled in the dead man's bizarre life. Dead Man's Cell Phone is an imaginative comedy by award winning playwright and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl. The play tells the tale of a woman forced to confront her assumptions about morality, redemption and the need to connect in a technologically-obsessed world.

Joseph...Dreamcoat (93' U.K. Tour w/Optional `Megamix`) in Broadway JOSEPH...DREAMCOAT (93' U.K. TOUR W/OPTIONAL `MEGAMIX`)
Curtain Call, Inc
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. This version of JOSEPH?DREAMCOAT features extended songs and dances. The Megamix is available as a separate rental with this version.
