September 2019
TORCH SONG TRILOGY
by Harvey Fierstein
A perfect follow up to this season’s Hit the Wall. This updated version of the iconic classic is constructed of three plays told in two acts. The life of Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing, Jewish drag queen living in New York City is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s and 1980s, from Stonewall, the AIDS crisis, and other ground-breaking milestones for the LGBT community. Told with a likable, human voice, Arnold struggles through love, disease, and the challenges of child-rearing. This award-winning and popular work broke new ground in the theatre: "At the height of the post-Stonewall clone era, author Harvey Fierstein challenged both gay and straight audiences to champion an effeminate gay man's longings for love and family."

November 2019 – Regional Premiere
FUN HOME
book + lyrics by Lisa Kron, music by Jeanine Tesori;
based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel
The coming-of-age story of lesbian author Alison Bechdel, from her youth, to her years at Oberlin College, and finally to the present, where Alison, now grown, is struggling to write her own graphic autobiography. As she reflects on her past, she struggles to make sense of her relationship with her father, Bruce, a closeted gay man and the owner of the family business -- the Bechdel Funeral Home (“fun” home, as it’s known to young Alison and her brothers, John and Christian). As she watches her father’s self-loathing consume him, Alison recognizes her own experience of discovering, and ultimately embracing, her identity. Alison is drawn deeper and deeper into her memories, finally entering into them, desperate (but unable) to reverse her father’s self-destruction.

January 2020 – Regional Premiere
CHOIR BOY
by Tarell Alvin McCraney
Race and sexuality collide with the gravity of history at the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is dedicated to the creation of strong, ethical black men. Pharus, a flamboyantly gay youth, is determined to make his mark like those before him, as the best choir leader in the school's history. He's an outsider in a world of ritual and tradition who must gain the respect of his peers. Can he find his way inside the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key? The sweet harmonies of spirituals and gospel unite the fractious voices of the young men but when they raise their voices in unison, they offer a glimpse of a world in which the cruelty that can divide and destroy is dissolved in a graceful order.

March 2020
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES
book by Harvey Fierstein, music + lyrics by Jerry Herman;
based on the play by Jean Poiret
Georges is the owner of the La Cage nightclub, which features a drag show starring the love of his life, Albin. After 20 years they face the hardest challenge of their relationship, yet: meeting their son, Jean-Michel’s fiance’s parents. Albin has always raised Jean-Michel, Georges’ biological son, as his own. But when Jean-Michel becomes engaged to the daughter of an ultra-conservative, anti-gay politician, Georges feels compelled to try to present a more “traditional” family to potential in-laws. When Albin tries and fails to take on a masculine persona in the role of Uncle Al, he gets more creative. A musical filled with delightful spectacle and great heart.

May 2020 – Regional Premiere
SOUTHERN COMFORT
book + lyrics by Dan Collins, music by Julianne Wick Davis;
based on the film by Kate Davis
A courageous, heart-soaring musical that tells the true story of a group of transgender friends living life on their own terms in the back hills of rural Georgia. At its core, it is a love story between patriarch, Robert Eads, and newcomer Lola Cola. Through a unique folk and bluegrass-inspired score, the musical chronicles a year in the lives of this unique American family as they courageously defy the odds by simply remaining on the land to which they were born, reminding us that home is where we find comfort in our skin.
