When you combine Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” with the legendary Cole Porter’s music and lyrics, we get KISS ME, KATE — a raucous musical comedy that has been considered one of Broadway’s dearest treasures. Set in Baltimore, Maryland, this musical follows director and actor Fred Graham who is days away from opening his new musical based on William Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew". Fred has cast his difficult to work with ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi, and himself as the warring stars Katherine and Petruchio in order to capitalize on the chemistry they once had to bring his career back to its former glory. As you can probably guess, things don't go very well. Throw in a couple of complicated love triangles, massive egos, and two of the savviest gangsters you'll ever see on stage, this play-within-a-play is a farcical delight. Musical numbers include Why Can’t You Behave, So In Love, Wunderbar, Tom, Dick or Harry, Too Darn Hot, Brush Up Your Shakespeare, I Hate Men, Always True to You (In My Fashion) and Another Op’nin’, Another Show. KISS ME, KATE is fun, melodious, sophisticated, and pure entertainment from lights up to the final curtain.

Kiss Me Kate is produced by special arrangements with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., New York, NY.

A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970's Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, and more through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small-screen comeback, it’s lighting up stages everywhere! Schoolhouse Rock Live! follows Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such songs as “Just A Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly,” "Interplanet Janet," and “Conjunction Junction.” Schoolhouse Rock Live! brings its infectious zest to a cross-generational audience: entrancing those who will be hearing it for the first time while taking the rest on a nostalgic walk down memory lane.

Schoolhouse Rock Live Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019; Tel.: (212) 541-4684 Fax: (212) 397-4684 www.MTIShows.com

Behind the Beautiful Forevers

by National Theatre Live

UCC Campus, Whipple Fine Arts Center, Centerstage Theatre

India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he’s as tall as Kalu the thief. Asha seeks to steal government anti-poverty funds to turn herself into a ‘first-class person’, while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum’s first female graduate.
But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum-dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighbourhood.

The Hard Problem

by National Theatre Live

UCC Campus, Whipple Fine Arts Center, Centerstage Theatre

Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brain science institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.

Man and Superman

by National Theatre Live

UCC Campus, Whipple Fine Arts Center, Centerstage Theatre

Jack Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary.

Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his.

A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live.
