    The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

    This Spring’s musical event is the 2005 Broadway and Off-Broadway hit, THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE! This charming musical comedy tells the tale of six middle school “misfits” in Putnam County, NY finding themselves through one of the most competitive and brave journeys adolescents can embark on – a Spelling Bee! With a book by Rachel Sheinkin, music & lyrics by William Finn, conceived by Rebecca Feldman, and helmed by returning director Colin Hanlon, this Tony Award-winning timeless and hilarious story about self-discovery proves that W-I-N-N-I-N-G (and losing) isn’t everything.

    Tales from the Guttenberg Bible

    Featuring 90 characters, four actors, and one Steve Guttenberg, this fully staged production is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Tales from the Guttenberg Bible, is a farcical, laugh-out-loud story written by and starring veteran screen actor Steve Guttenberg (Three Men and a Baby, Police Academy, Cocoon). This hilarious journey from the Guttenberg’s family home on Long Island to the glamour of Hollywood as Guttenberg himself tells-all – i.e. how he broke into the Paramount Lot – to his run-ins with everyone from Paul Reiser to Tom Selleck, Kevin Bacon to Merv Griffin. It would be an unbelievable tale, if it wasn’t true (mostly). Learn More

Rising star Mfoniso Udofia’s acclaimed play centers around matriarch Abasiama and her two daughters, reunited – but not reconciled – in America. “Masterfully written,” exclaimed the LA Times, HER PORTMANTEAU “defies preconceptions and expectations with a deeply felt perspective on immigration.” Part of Udofia’s 9-play series inspired by August Wilson’s epic Century Cycle, this exquisite season opener will be staged by George Street’s Associate Artistic Director Laiona Michelle. “While you may go in thinking you’ll be seeing a play about someone else’s family,” added the Times, “by the end you’ll be thinking about your own.” Learn More
