Ivoryton Playhouse: The Fantasticks
to Apr 8

Ivoryton Playhouse: The Fantasticks

A gem of the American theater, The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world – running over 50 years in Manhattan and entrancing generations of audiences the world over. I am thrilled to be playing Bellomy in this version for two mothers, rather than two fathers.  

The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical tale about a boy, a girl, and their two parents who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, originally played by Jerry Orbach, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo’s words that “without a hurt, the heart is hollow”.  The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.

Opens March 21st and runs through April 8th.  No show Easter Sunday, April 1; Replacement show on Saturday, March 31st at 2pm.  http://www.ivorytonplayhouse.org/our-season/the-fantasticks

Downtown Cabaret Theater: Carlotta in "Phantom"
to Dec 10

Downtown Cabaret Theater: Carlotta in "Phantom"


November 17 - December 10
Written by the Tony Award-winning team of Maury Yeston (music and lyrics) and Arthur Kopit (book), and based on Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel “The Phantom of the Opera”,  the romantic musical takes a fresh look at the mysterious young phantom, Erik, who lives in the catacombs of the Paris Opera House and shares glorious music with the enchanting vocal prodigy, Christine. Not to be confused with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1986 mega-musical, the Yeston and Kopit version, more operetta-like in musical style, seeks to more closely reflect the Leroux novel and offers a deeper exploration of the phantom’s past.

“This Phantom is not Sir Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, AND THAT’S GREAT. Yeston’s Phantom is smaller, but in my opinion, better. It has a heart and they delve into the characters in a warmer, more human way.”
