In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary Marius who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter Cosette. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.

Based off of the Peanuts comic strips by Charles Schulz, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown is the story of “an average day" in the life of Charlie Brown. A Broadway style musical composed of some of the most classic Peanuts comic moments, the show features scenes from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, we see Charlie Brown and his friends (both human and non-human), navigate the ups and downs of life with catchy, and heartfelt songs. 

 

The original 1967 production was nominated for four tony awards and the 1999 revival, starred Kristin Chenoweth who won a Tony for her portryal of Sally. Roger Bart also won for his  eccentric potryal of Charlie Brown's faithful dog Snoopy.  The show has also won several Drama Desk Awards as well. 

Most recently a hit movie starring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp, Into the Woods began as a live musical that took Broadway by storm. A fresh spin on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, this production interweaves several classic fairy tales into one epic story that shows what happens when things get real in the fairy-tale world. Unable to bear children, a baker and his wife are lured into completing a number of tasks by a witch who promises to grant them their wish if they're successful.

 

During their journey, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk. All the storybook characters discover that wishes come with a steep price. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards. The cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in the Sky" and "No One Is Alone," took home a Grammy.

The Importance of Being Earnest is the tale of two friends Mr.  Jack Worthing and Mr. Algernon Montcrieff, and their interactions with a certain imaginary friend named "Earnest". Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play covers a comical view of marriage and Victorian ways.  Performed around the world for  over 100 years and made into multiple motion pictures, Earnests' high farce and witty dialogue have helped make it one of Oscar Wilde's most enduringly popular plays.
