Upcoming Plays for April

Upcoming plays in April:

At the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Connecticut:

Irving Berlin's “Annie Get Your Gun” runs April 16th through June 27th. “Ride along with Annie Oakley, a backwoods gal with a sure-shot and quick wit, as she challenges dashing marksman Frank Butler to be the star of Buffalo Bill’s traveling show. Sparks fly faster than bullets as the competition and romance heat up. Featuring some of Broadway’s greatest songs: “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Anything You Can Do,” and “I Got The Sun In The Morning.”

At The Hartford Stage
“The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”, newly adapted by Laura Eason, directed by Jeremy B. Cohen runs April 1st through May 9th.

At The Ivoryton Playhouse in Ivoryton, Connecticut, “Some Enchanted Evening - The Songs of Rogers & Hammerstein” runs April 14th through May 2nd.

At the Merrimack Repertory Theatre of Lowell, Massachusetts,

“The Last Days of Mickey & Jean” by Richard Dresser receives it world premiere, now running through April 11th.

“Mickey, a witty, paranoid fugitive ex-mobster from Southie who is on the lam with his no-longer young, Charleston-native girlfriend, Jean, is forced into an early retirement in Europe. With his Boston Red Sox cap never out of reach, he is out of place and away from the one thing he truly loves: his work. While he searches for a way to get back into business and Jean longs for a “normal" life back in Boston, the dysfunctional couple runs into one hilarious situation after another, learning shocking secrets about each other along the way. The Last Days of Mickey & Jean is a funny perspective on unconventional love, unconditional loyalty and life after retirement.”

At the Portland Stage, Portland Maine, “Mary’s Wedding” by Stephen Massicotte runs April 6th through the 25th.

“A passionate and heart-breaking love story about a young farmer and his bride-to-be who are separated when he enlists in World War I. Mary and Charlie tell an unforgettable story from the quiet after a prairie thunderstorm to the terrors of the trenches in this award-winning drama about two lovers who must surrender their fate to the uncertainties of tumultuous times.”

At The Bushnell of Hartford, Connecticut:

Rodgers & Hammerstein's “South Pacific” runs April 20th through 25th.

“A stunning reinvention produced by Lincoln Center Theater, South Pacific swept the 2008 Tony Awards®, winning seven honors including Best Musical Revival and Best Director for Bartlett Sher. Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices.” The beloved score’s songs include “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “This Nearly Was Mine” and “There’s Nothin’ Like a Dame.” USA Today cheers, “Gorgeous! South Pacific doesn’t just float; it soars!”

At the Westport Country Playhouse, Westport, Connecticut:

“She Loves Me” runs April 20th through May 8th, book by Joe Masteroff, music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and directed by Mark Lamos.

“Georg and Amalia are madly in love. They just don't realize it yet. Caught up in a feud at the parfumerie where they work, neither suspects that the other is their anonymous romantic pen pal. This bewitching musical comedy, with a beautiful score and delightful book by the team that created Fiddler on the Roof, still has all the grace, allure and spirit that established it as one of the all-time great Broadway classics.”
