Welcome to George Street
Playhouse's 41st Season!
Our season opens with the romantic comedy from the pen of the author of Moonstruck, John Patrick Shanley. Outside Mullingar, a Tony Award nominee for Best Play, tells the story of Rosemary and Anthony, two neighbors - one content to be alone - the other not. Their journey toward happiness results in a delightful romantic comedy with a touch of the Irish. Ellen McLaughlin and John Bolger (both last seen on our stage in Good People), will bring these characters to vibrant life to start our season.
Outside Mullingar is followed by a new a cappella musical, The Fabulous Lipitones, in which a midwestern barbershop quartet’s search for a replacement results in a hilarious musical comedy of stereotypes, misunderstandings and the path to perfect harmony from the pen of Mark St. Germain (whose Best of Enemies graced our stage two seasons ago) and John Markus (head writer for The Cosby Show).
The New Year gets off to a dramatic start with our production of The Whipping Man, Matthew Lopez’s award-winning drama about the post-Civil War South and the relationships between former slaves and their former owners. It is followed by the recent off-Broadway smash comedy Buyer and Cellar, which offers a hilarious (and fictional) account of an underemployed actor hired to work in the basement “mall” of Barbra Streisand’s Malibu compound. Our season closes with the innovative musical, Ernest Shackleton Loves Me, an epic, cross-time love affair for the ages from Joe DiPietro (Clever Little Lies, Memphis) and featuring music and lyrics by Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda of GrooveLily.
From thought-provoking drama to the hilarious confection of a musical comedy— I am so glad you have chosen to be a part of this season.
