FOOTLOOSE
Clear Lake High School
1/24-2/2/2013
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.Music by Tom Snow; Lyrics by Dean Pitchford; Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie; Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford; Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

CLYBOURNE PARK
Alley Theatre
1/18-2/17/2013
The powerfully provocative Clybourne Park, the 2012 Tony Award winner for Best Play and 2011 Pulitzer Prize winner, is the most talked-about show of the 2012 Broadway season and "the funniest play of the year" (London Evening Standard). Called "a spiky and insightful new comedy" by The New York Times and "completely audacious, ingenious entertainment" (Entertainment Weekly), and "superb, elegantly written, and hilarious" (The New Yorker), Bruce Norris' Olivier Award winner for Best Play pits Race against Real Estate. Two different generations of characters delicately dance around social politics as a white community in the 1950s splinters over the black family about to move in, and the roles reverse 50 years later with the start of gentrification. The razor-sharp satire explores the evolution of racism and how the date on the calendar may change but perceptions may not.
