THIS YEAR'S SHOWS ARE:
Enter a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur and glory! A world where Bohemians and aristocrats rub elbows and revel in electrifying enchantment. Pop the champagne and prepare for the spectacular spectacular… Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film comes to life onstage, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza. A theatrical celebration of truth, beauty, freedom and — above all — love, Moulin Rouge! is more than a musical; it is a state of mind.
Goodspeed Connection: Associate Choreographer Katie Spelman choreographed Goodspeed's Oklahoma!.
JAGGED LITTLE PILL
Inspired by the themes and emotions of Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning album, Jagged Little Pill is “a big-hearted musical that breaks the mold” (The New York Times), directed by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin), with an “urgent and wickedly funny” (The Boston Globe) book by Academy Award® winner Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully). The Healys are a picture-perfect family — but looks can be deceiving. When the cracks beneath the surface begin to show, they must choose between maintaining the status quo or facing harsh truths about themselves, their community, and the world around them.
Goodspeed Connection: The cast includes Goodspeed alum Sean Allan Krill (Deathless), Elizabeth Stanley (Snapshots), and Jane Bruce (Theory of Relativity)
DIANA: A NEW MUSICAL
Diana is the electrifying new musical about a woman who chose to be fearless, and as a result became timeless. When Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles, she instantly became a cultural phenomenon. Leading fiercely with her heart, Princess Diana stood up for her family, her country and herself. She defied expectations, she rocked the royals and she created a legacy that will endure forever.
Goodspeed Connection: Book and Lyrics are written by Joe DiPietro who wrote Nice Work, which originally premiered at Goodspeed as They All Laughed.
Based on the beloved 1993 film starring Robin Williams, this hilarious and heartfelt new musical is about a struggling actor who disguises himself as a British nanny in order to spend quality time with his children after losing custody in a divorce. He learns a lot more about fatherhood than he bargained for. A truly inspiring story about the lengths we will go to for love, Mrs. Doubtfire is a joyful musical that will make you laugh and lift your spirits.
Goodspeed Connection: The show's lighting designer Philip Rosenberg designed Goodspeed's Oklahoma! and Bye Bye Birdie.
UNKNOWN SOLDIER (Off-Broadway)
Cleaning out her grandmother’s home, Ellen Rabinowitz discovers a mysterious photograph of an anonymous soldier, tucked away in a box of keepsakes. And so begins Daniel Goldstein and Michael Friedman’s sweeping, elegiac musical about a woman’s journey to unearth the secrets buried in her family’s past. Spanning three generations, Unknown Soldier unravels a delicate tangle of family lore, as Ellen chases the extraordinary story that unlocks her history — and charts her future.
Goodspeed Connection: Book and Lyrics are by Daniel Goldstein who directed Goodspeed's Anything Goes; Hello, Dolly! and Damn Yankees.
