Blessed and cursed with an unfailing gift for fabrication, young Dorante comes to Paris looking for a good time and promptly falls in love.

GIRLFRIEND
Signature Theatre
3/17-6/10/2018
Girlfriend is a vibrant and tender coming of age musical duet from when flannel was the height of fashion and mix tapes were the language of love. It’s 1993 in small-town Nebraska during the summer between high school and whatever comes next. College-bound jock Mike and self-assured but aimless Will find themselves drawn to each other. Their rush of first-time love, full of excitement, confusion and passion, is captured by the power-pop precision and frayed guitar emotion of Matthew Sweet’s alternative rock album “Girlfriend.”

Little Theatre of Virginia Beach
5/18-6/10/2018
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It's foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well.... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with everyone else's. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS
Signature Theatre
5/22-7/1/2018
Signature’s tradition of celebrating Kander & Ebb continues with their final musical collaboration. In the vein of their iconic Chicago and Cabaret, the Tony Award®-winning masterminds deliver a breathtaking musical critique of a stunning true story of racism and injustice in the American South. On March 25, 1931, nine young African-American teenagers were ripped off a train, falsely accused of a crime, hastily tried and sentenced to death in an outrageous disregard of due process. With a sound and style reflecting the period and exhilarating dance and song, The Scottsboro Boys transforms an event that gripped the nation into a compelling musical nominated for twelve Tony Awards®.
