2020 / 2021 SEASON

THE LAST FIVE YEARS

(a modern musical)

October 28 - November 15, 2020

Rated PG-13

The Last Five Years was named one of TIME Magazine's ten best shows of 2001. This emotionally powerful and intimate musical ingeniously chronicles the five-year relationship between two New Yorkers: Cathy, a struggling actress (played by Katie Diamond), and Jamie, a budding novelist (played by Daniel C. Levine). The Last Five Years is told through an unconventional structure in which Cathy tells her story in reverse-chronological order (beginning the show at the end of their marriage), while Jamie's is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple has met for the first time). With book, music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (The Bridges of Madison County, Honeymoon in Vegas, 13), this modern 90-minute musical has enraptured audiences around the world with its spellbinding and emotional score and was adapted into a film in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.

Starring: Katie Diamond and Daniel C. Levine

Music Director: Bryan Perri

SNAPSHOTS: A MUSICAL SCRAPBOOK

By Stephen Schwartz

January 28 - February 21, 2021

Rated PG-13

Snapshots: A Musical Scrapbook is an original musical by Broadway legend Stephen Schwartz. Snapshots follows a suburban couple on the verge of divorce after 30 years of marriage. A hidden suitcase in their attic containing photographs of their life together reconnects them with their past as younger versions of themselves appear and play out “snapshots” from their relationship. Snapshots incorporates over two dozen of Schwartz's songs, including songs from Wicked, Pippin, Godspell, The Baker’s Wife, Rags, The Magic Show, Working, Children of Eden, and Enchanted. If you are a fan of Wicked (and other Schwartz musicals), this is the show for you!

INTO THE WOODS

May 13 - June 6, 2021

Rated PG-13

A timeless and deeply relevant Tony Award winning musical, Into The Woods is one of Stephen Sondheim's most inventive works. Directed by ACT’s Artistic Director Daniel C. Levine, this sophisticated fairy-tale mash-up tells the story of a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two embark on a journey into the woods to change their fate. Many wishes are granted, but as the characters discover, every wish can have far-reaching consequences and “anything can happen in the woods”.
