The Broadway Musical Inspired by a Masterpiece!

“Work is what you do for others… Art is what you do for yourself.”

Winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for drama, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE is an enchanting show with a complex, beautiful, haunting score reflecting Georges Seurat’s imagined journey as he creates his most famous painting: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Then, in classic Sondheim/James Lapine style, it presents a second act centered around a modern-day descendant, also a George, an artist blocked and wrestling with the pursuit of his creative spark in today’s commercial world.

Cast members are named based on their role in the famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat

Act I premiered Off-Broadway in 1983 starring Bernadette Peters & Mandy Patinkin and on Broadway with both acts in 1984. It also won the Drama Desk & NY Drama Critic’s Circle Awards, was nominated for 11 Tony© Awards, & won for scenic & lighting design. Revived on Broadway in 2008 & 2017.

“Bit by bit, putting it together…”

Minnie’s Boys

Musical Theatre Guild presents Minnie's Boys

The Madcap MARX BROTHERS Musical!

“Rich is…havin’ the moola to scratch where you itch!”

Before Mama Rose, there was Minnie, a super-Mom who was the driving force behind the famous Marx Brothers. A vaudeville performer herself, Minnie coaxed, pushed, pulled and prodded the boys into their now-famous entity. Seldom seen but dearly loved, Larry Grossman & Hal Hackady’s tuneful and infectious score takes us through the zany early years of the brothers as they get their start in burlesque. You know their films, but we bet you don’t know how it all started. This show will fill you in!

“After love…. what else is there?”

“Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret) travel us to Greece with one of their most beautifully evocative scores in this TONY AWARD winning  Broadway Musical.  Based on the 1952 novel and 1964 classic film, ZORBA is a tender and turbulent evening of love and passion.

“Every minute is a new minute… every second is a new second!”


“Light the candles, get the ice out, roll the rug up!” It’s Mame!!!!

One of Broadway’s most luminous characters comes to our stage to remind us that “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!” Featuring one of Jerry Herman’s most tuneful and joyous scores, Auntie Mame takes us on a wild ride of life with her inherited little nephew, Patrick.

MAME premiered in 1966 starring Angela Lansbury, Bea Arthur and Frankie Michaels, who all won Tony© Awards for their performances. It was nominated for an additional 5 Tony© awards and ran for 1,508 performances. A subsequent film version of the musical premiered in 1974 starring Lucille Ball.

So pour yourself some champagne and hang on as we coax the blues right out of your horn!
