Hudson Mainstage Theatre
9/16-10/9/2016
At age 15 Milo Reynolds had it all: a seat at the popular table, the perfect girlfriend, the “coolest” parents, and friends who worshiped him. So, when Milo kills himself on Monday morning, his friends and family are left questioning everything they thought they knew about him. "Generation Me" explores the heartbreak, confusion, and survivor’s guilt of the effects of suicide on those left behind. Told in flashbacks that open Milo’s story to the audience like a mystery, "Generation Me" identifies a generation more privileged, self-interested, oblivious, and lonelier than ever.

THE PRODUCERS in Broadway THE PRODUCERS
San Diego Musical Theatre
9/23-10/9/2016
The winner of a record-breaking twelve Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book, this comedic tour-de-force leaves you rolling in the aisles, as it irreverently takes a jab at anyone and everyone. Based on the 1968 film of the same name, The Producers is a monster hit, with all the key ingredients of a side-splitting satirical comedy: great tunes, big musical numbers, and fantastic choreography including showgirls, goose-stepping Nazi's, tap dancing old ladies, and of course a dollop of romance. The story follows a washed-up Broadway Producer and his nerdy accountant as they concoct a scheme to bilk their backers by overselling the most notorious flop, with intentions to take the unspent millions for themselves. Except for one thing, the show's a huge hit!
