Welcome to George Street Playhouse’s 40th Season!
I have always likened choosing a season to preparing a delicious multi-course meal. That is certainly the case this season more than most!
Our celebration opens with another laugh-out-loud rockin’ new musical from Tony Award-winning director John Rando (director of The Toxic Avenger) – Gettin’ The Band Back Together. Next, I will be directing a new play by Tony Award-winning writer Joe DiPietro (Memphis, Nice Work if You Can Get It) – Clever Little Lies. Everyone at the Playhouse is very excited about I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti. Based on the New York Times best-seller of the same title, actress Antoinette LaVecchia will make and serve a three-course Italian meal on stage each night, while giving us a hilarious account of loves and losses and meals created and consumed.
I am thrilled to be closing this special season with a new and exciting theatrical partnership with Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. Each season, the two institutions will collaborate on a large-scale, American masterwork. This year’s selection, Thornton Wilder’s classic Our Town, will be directed by David Esbjornson, the new head of the Theatre program at Mason Gross, and an acclaimed Broadway director (Driving Miss Daisy, The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?).
This season will make you laugh, perhaps make you cry, and will certainly nourish you! I thank you for your support and hope that you will enjoy the delicious five-course meal we’ve prepared for you – this very special season at George Street Playhouse.
