Frank Capra’s film classic has been brought to vibrant theatrical life through the remarkable collaboration of Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winner Sheldon Harnick and Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Joe Raposo. The story of George Bailey and his wonderful life in Bedford Falls remains a timeless fable of dreams, disillusionment and the power of love. An uplifting chronicle of the extraordinary lives of ordinary folk, A WONDERFUL LIFE exhilarates the mind and heart as it celebrates the innate goodness in us all.
Ralphie Parker wants only one thing for Christmas: an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Actions 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle.
A Christmas Story, The Musical is the hilarious account of Ralphie’s desperate quest to ensure that this most perfect of gifts ends up under his tree this Christmas. This new musical is based on the classic 1983 movie, which itself was based on stories by legendary radio humorist Jean Shepherd.
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and book by William Steig, with music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek: The Musical is a TONY Award-winning fairy tale adventure bringing all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proving there's more to the story than meets the ears.
The cycle of the nine Beethoven symphonies recorded by Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra for the then-new high fidelity vinyl phonograph records concludes this week with Number 9 in D minor. A good performance -- and this is a great one -- of this monumental work leaves no classical music lover unmoved.
And for something completely different, an overture to a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, a ballet by Gounod, and some heroic music for organ and brasses are also scheduled.
