  • Starlight Express

    Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
    Lyrics by Richard Stilgoe
    Additional lyrics by David Yazbek
    Directed and Choreographed by Richard Stafford
    Music Director: Justin Fischer

    Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Starlight Express is a fast-paced, physical, sung-through musical about competition and predates our cultures’ current fascination with reality television competition by several decades. Told from a child’s perspective, its plot is simply the child’s imagining of the ultimate train race with each train car having human characteristics. Starlight Express explores relationships, social hierarchy, gender stereotypes and the competitive urge. 

    Performed at National Dance Institute Center for Learning and the Arts (217 W. 147 Street, NYC)

  • The Who’s Tommy

    Music and Lyrics by Pete Townshend
    Book by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff
    Additional Music and Lyrics by John Entwistle and Keith Moon
    Directed and choreographed by Emily Clark
    Associate Choreographer: Jessica McRoberts
    Music Director: Christine Riley

    The Who’s Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit. Based on the studio album by the English rock band The Who, The Who’s Tommy is a rock opera about a deaf, dumb, and blind boy who witnesses the accidental murder of his mother’s lover by his father. Tommy is traumatized into catatonia and suffers additional abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. As an adolescent, he discovers he has an uncanny knack for playing pinball and, when his mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he becomes an international pinball superstar. This rock opera explores the relationship that Tommy has to his past and his mythology, and the majesty of his triumphs becomes his present and future.

  • Joan Littlewood’s Musical Entertainment Oh What a Lovely War

    By Joan Littlewood, Theatre Workshop, and Charles Chilton
    Research by Gerry Raffles
    After treatments by Ted Allan and others

    Directed by Hans Friedrichs
    Choreographed by Rommy Sandhu
    Music Direction by Yan Li

    Fiercely funny, cynical, and heart breaking, this biting satiric commentary on war was developed by Joan Littlewood and the Theatre Workshop in London in 1963. The original production changed not only the theatre landscape but musical theatre as well, creating a template that inspired musicals such as Cabaret and Chicago. Oh What A Lovely War tells the story of the First World War, through the conceit of an Edwardian seaside Pierrot show using popular Music Hall songs of the period, juxtaposed against scenes based on actual events and projected images from the war. Not seen in NYC since its original Broadway production, it has enjoyed major revivals all over the world including the National Theatre in London and most recently at the Shaw Festival of Canada.

    Performed at the York Theatre (619 Lexington Avenue, NYC)

    Performance Location: York Theatre (619 Lexington Avenue, NYC 10022)

    Production Dates:

    March 20-23 at 8:00pm
    March 23 at 2:00pm

    as translated by Emily Townsend Vermeule

    Electra, set in the ritualistic and tribal world of Argos, is a passionate family drama told through text, music and movement.
