I HATE HAMLET, SWEET CHARITY and More to Be Presented in Maltz Jupiter Theatre's 2020-2021 Season
Enjoy Broadway in your backyard with the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's 2020/21 season!
With just the ticket for everyone, the award-winning regional theatre's upcoming season will begin with I Hate Hamlet (October 25 - November 8), Paul Rudnick's hilarious comedy in which rising star Andrew Rally is visited by the ghost of a legendary actor who is determined to convince the young artist to pursue a life on the stage. We continue with Sweet Charity (December 1 - 20), the Tony Award®-nominated smash hit that captures all the humor and heartbreak of life in the Big Apple. Next up is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (January 12 - 31), the uproarious and hysterical comedic musical that follows the adventures of two charismatic swindlers as they compete to con a heiress in the beautiful French Riviera. Then join us for Good People (February 14 - 28), the Tony Award®-nominated dramatic comedy about working class American struggles, hopes and dreams. Our incredible season ends with Sunset Boulevard (March 9 - 28), the Tony Award®-winning musical masterpiece of obsession, romance and the golden age of Hollywood stars.
"We'd like to invite audiences to get ready to laugh with the rowdy comedy I Hate Hamlet and embrace a hopeless romantic's zany search for 'the one' in Sweet Charity," said Andrew Kato, the Theatre's producing artistic director and chief executive. "Then travel to the luxurious French Riviera for the uproarious and hysterical comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and then to Boston, where a blue collar worker finds herself fired from her job and confronting her past in Good People. Then help us end the season with the magnificent and beloved musical about stardom, Sunset Boulevard."
