The 2019/20 season will begin with The Curious Case of the Curse of Count Dracula (October 27 - November 10), an all-new world premiere that combines the epic horror story of Count Dracula with a dash of Mel Brooks and Monty Python for a lightning fast, laugh-out-loud comedy.

Next up is Chicago (January 14 - February 2), the beloved and sexy Tony Award-winning smash hit musical about rival murderesses that is sure to give audiences a little razzle dazzle! Then join them for Brighton Beach Memoirs (February 23 - March 8), Neil Simon's award-winning play that follows 15-year-old Eugene Jerome as he navigates the waters of adolescence prior to World War II. The incredible season ends with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (March 17 - April 5), Frank Loesser's nine-time Tony Award-winning musical that pokes fun at big business as it follows a lowly window washer who follows a handbook to climb the corporate ladder to high powered executive.

"We'd like to invite audiences to embrace the fright of our world premiere production of The Curious Case of the Curse of Count Dracula and 'choose the who' in the musical romp The Mystery of Edwin Drood," said Andrew Kato, producing artistic director and chief executive, in a statement. "Then experience the passion of the dazzling hit musical Chicago, fall in love with the angst and coming-of-age story that is Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs, and celebrate the hilarious satire of corporate ambition with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."
