Book by Terrence McNally Music by Stephen Flaherty | Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens Based on the novel “Ragtime” by E.L. Doctorow Directed by Mark Clements September 17 – October 27 Quadracci Powerhouse
Adapted from E.L. Doctorow’s novel (voted by Time Magazine as among the Top 100 Best Novels of the 20th century), this sweeping musical portrait of early 20th Century America tells the powerful tale of a white, upper-middle class family, an African-American couple, and an Eastern European immigrant escaping to America with his daughter, as they all confront the timeless contradictions of wealth, poverty, freedom, prejudice, hope, and despair in pursuit of the American Dream. Unfolding through the fiery rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley, delicate waltzes, and the vibrant klezmer of the Lower East Side, this vivid and unforgettable Tony-winning score bursts onto the Quadracci Powerhouse stage “on the wheels of a dream” in what will be the largest and most epic production ever staged at The Rep.
By David Ives September 25 – November 3 Stiemke Studio
Meet Thomas—a demanding playwright and director desperate for the perfect actress for his new stage adaptation of a classic erotic novel. Meet Vanda—an unusually talented young actress lusting after the leading role in the show. Through the comic genius of playwright David Ives, their late-night encounter in a deserted audition studio evolves from banal routine into a sizzling battle of the sexes blending love, libido, and literature that will keep you wondering to the very end just who, exactly, is on top.
Written by Stuart Ross Arrangements by James Raitt October 25 – December 29 Stackner Cabaret
On a stormy night in the 1960s, four eager singers known as “The Plaids”—Sparky, Jinx, Frankie, and Smudge—are killed in a car crash on the way to their first big gig. In 2013, they get one chance to return from the afterlife and bop-shoo-bop their way through classic hits like “Love is a Many Splendored Thing,” “Three Coins in the Fountain,” “Sixteen Tons,” and many more. You’ll delight in their zany, boyish squabbles and charmingly outlandish choreography as they pay an affectionate homage to the close-harmony male singing groups of the 1950s, and fulfill their dreams by performing the show that never was.
By Michael Frayn November 19 – December 22 Quadracci Powerhouse
Called “the funniest farce ever written” by the New York Post, Michael Frayn’s uproarious play-within-a-play follows the on- and off-stage antics of the members of a mediocre touring company as they blunder from an ominously bad dress rehearsal to a spectacularly disastrous closing performance. The perfect show for the Holiday Season, Noises Off is a hysterical romp packed full of a side-splitting collection of forgotten cues, missed connections, and backstage hilarity.
