We started our 2014 season in February with an encore production of the hysterical British comedy, Noises Off. Written by Michael Frayn, it is considered by many to be one of the funniest comedies ever written. Our audience went behind the scenes – literally – as we watched one of the most inept theater companies on Earth try to stage a show, all the while battling clashing egos, romantic entanglements, and other crises.
February 14-16, 20-23, 28 and March 1-2, directed by Debi Freund
In April, LTM brought you the funny, yet heart-warming, Steel Magnolias. The play by Robert Harling, revolves around a tight group of southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, and is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness that underlies the antic banter of its characters. If you’ve seen the movie and you thought this was the same, you got a wonderful surprise!
April 11-13, 17-19, 24-27, directed by Joe Keach-Longo
The mythical town of Almost, Maine, observed on a cold, cloudless night, offered a heart-warming change of pace for our June production. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream written by John Cariani. June 6-8, 12-15, 20-22, directed by Mike Zizka
In August, LTM audiences had special hallway passes to The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, where six young people, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learned that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. Spelling Bee is a hilarious, Tony-award-winning musical centering on a quirky, yet charming cast of outsiders and we had some terrific 'special guest spellers' including WTIC's Angela Dias, WLIS's Ginny Wolf, and WFSB's Hena Daniels and Nicole Nalepa. They were great sports and we had a wonderful time with them on stage! The musical was conceived by Rebecca Feldman with music and lyrics by William Finn, a book by Rachel Sheinkin and additional material by Jay Reiss.
August 8-10, 14-17 Directed and choreographed by Gloria Trombley
Our final production of the 2014 season will be the first-ever LTM staging of the classic musical, South Pacific.Based on James A. Michener's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 book, Tales of the South Pacific, the play features wonderful, memorable music by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, including the classic “Some Enchanted Evening.” Way ahead of its time, the play was one of the first to explore the topic of interracial romance and prejudices, but doing so with humor and great compassion. Still popular today, the play was revived on Broadway in 2008 and was a critical success, winning seven Tonys. The Director's Talk Back sessions will occur only on November 9 and 16, immediately after the show.
November 7-9, 13-16, 21-23 Directed by Joe Keach-Longo
