On a lush tropical island during World War II, battles of the heart are center stage in the Goodspeed premiere of the soaring Rodgers & Hammerstein classic. Lovestruck nurse Nellie Forbush falls for a French planter. Lieutenant Joe Cable is drawn to a native girl. In an exotic world of risk and romance, prejudice clouds their potential paradise. Be swept away by twin love stories and a rapturous score that includes “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “Bali Ha’i” and more.

Anne Shirley just arrived on Prince Edward Island and she’s creating quite a stir. Adopted by siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, Anne is feisty, smart and eager to find her own place in the world. But is the world ready for her? Fall in love with the endearing redhead of the classic novel, now reimagined as a vibrant folk-rock musical for all generations. With bold choreography, witty humor and a revolutionary spirit, this is Green Gables as you’ve never seen it before!

It’s the best of all possible worlds in Leonard Bernstein’s madcap musical adventure! Candide’s enduring optimism is tested time and again as he bounces from Europe to the New World in search of opportunity, meaning and his elusive true love, Cunegonde. Comic opera meets musical comedy in a glittering tale of temptation and tragedy, joy and discovery, illusion and reality. Tony Award winner Darko Tresnjak directs a sweeping musical theatre masterwork in its intimate Goodspeed premiere.
