The Producers
Winner of 12 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Scheming partners Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom think they know the sure-fire way to make money on Broadway: fund a flop on the cheap and make off with the extra cash. No journey down the Great White Way would be complete without kitschy dance numbers, romantic interludes and over-the-top personalities; Mel Brooks delivers all of this, with a strong dose of humor. Directed and choreographed by Tomé Cousin.

Ainadamar
The stones began to cry, the Spanish say, when poet Federico Garcia Lorca died at the hands of Franco's fascists. “Ainadamar,” the supposed site of that murder, means “fountain of tears” in Arabic. This is a dream of a chamber opera, a Deep Song containing the cry of the flamenco singer, the pounding of horses' hooves, and floating above them, Margarita Xirgu, the great Catalan tragedian and Lorca's muse, left to sing his song and bequeath his freedom. Composed by Osvaldo Golijov; libretto by David Henry Hwang; Music direction by Andres Cladera; video by Joe Seamans; stage direction by Karla Boos.
