GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER
Asolo Repertory Theatre
3/9-4/17/2016
When the classic film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner premiered in U.S. theaters in December 1967, Martin Luther King, Jr. was still alive and racial issues were bubbling. Now, 47 years later, this beloved comedy of manners has a new, totally electric adaptation for the stage with a fresh perspective to the themes that are as relevant as ever. A progressive white couple's proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter, fresh from a whirlwind romance, brings her African-American fiancé home to meet them. Personal beliefs clash with the mores of the late 1960s in this warm and funny exploration of love and culture and which of them has the greater hold on our hearts.

DISGRACED
Asolo Repertory Theatre
3/30-4/24/2016
New York. Today. Muslim-American lawyer Amir Kapoor has worked hard to achieve the American Dream – complete with a successful career, a beautiful wife and $600 custom-tailored shirts. But beneath the veneer, success comes at a price. At the moment of achieving his life-long ambitions, he falls victim to professional and personal betrayals that manifest in one of the most explosive and controversial scenes ever written for the theater. Hailed as "terrific and turbulent, with fresh currents of dramatic electricity" (New York Times), this Pulitzer Prize-winning examination of big city aspiration and cultural assimilation dares to face the truth hiding just below the deception.

MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT
Raymond James Theatre
4/13-5/8/2016
American Stage in the Park has been a celebrated Tampa Bay tradition for over thirty-years. Established in 1986, American Stage in the Park was first known for producing Shakespeare to audiences in and around Tampa Bay. American Stage in the Park expanded to included comedies and modern musicals presented under the stars each spring at Demens Landing Park in St. Pete. Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT adds swipes at Vegas glitz and Broadway conventions to the film’s anarchic spirit. The supremely silly musical retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, featuring a bevy of beautiful showgirls, cows, killer rabbits, and French people. (Did we mention a bevy of beautiful showgirls?) “…Taunting French guards, Knights Who Say Ni, a despondent prince, poor peasants and killer rabbits. They are all familiar to fans of the film, but you don’t have to know a thing about Monty Python to get the jokes.” – Herald Tribune Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot is the outrageously funny parody of the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Spamalot features a bevy of beautiful show girls and hilarious dance numbers, not to mention flying cows, killer rabbits and French people. With book and lyrics by Monty Python alum, Eric Idle, and a musical score by John Du Prez and Eric Idle;Spamalot “raises silliness to an art form! (NY Sunday Times).”

By Kenneth Jones. In 1959 Montgomery, Alabama, the civil rights movement is flowering. A children’s book with a hidden message stirs the passions of a segregationist senator and a no-nonsense state librarian. Inspired by true events, Alabama Story puts political foes, childhood friends, and one feisty author at opposite ends of clashing perceptions.
