The Carnegie is excited to announce its 2015-16 Theatre Series, inviting you over to the historic Otto M. Budig Theatre in August for a little COMPANY. In November, The Carnegie takes on an air of mystery as it presents the comedy-thriller SLEUTH, a delightful game of cat-and-mouse that will keep audiences guessing right up until the end. A light, but creative staging of THE WIZARD OF OZ takes you away from the January winter blahs with a wonderful flight of fancy and THE LAST FIVE YEARS closes the season in April with spellbinding songs that will tug at your heartstrings.

Robert is single, but all of his friends are married. He envies their love and companionship, but can’t seem to part with his bachelor ways. On his 35th birthday, they surprise him with a cake and a birthday wish that will leave him pondering the life he’s chosen. Full of lively, idiosyncratic characters, in addition to some of Sondheim’s best known songs, COMPANY is a rollicking and reflective send up of the modern relationship. Both poignant and funny, anyone who’s been in love can find a little of themselves in this contemporary Broadway classic.

Featuring hit songs such as “Another Hundred People,” “Side by Side by Side,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” and “Being Alive,” COMPANY is musical comedy at its very best.

SLEUTH

By ANTHONY SHAFFER

Directed by Greg Procaccino

Playing November 7 – 22, 2015

Friday & Saturday Evenings at 7:30pm, Sundays at 3:00pm

Famous mystery writer, Anthony Wyke, loves to play games. But when he finds out his wife plans to leave him for a young travel agent, he plots a game with murderous consequences. Of course, in a mystery, things are never quite as they seem and games can quickly get out of hand. A fast-paced comedy full of deception and mistaken identities, SLEUTH is a who-dun-it that will keep you riveted in your seat from start to finish.

SLEUTH is the winner of both Tony and Drama Desk awards for Best Play, and has been adapted for the silver screen several times over. This popular show is a mystery thrill-ride that audiences will want to take again and again.

SLEUTH is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

THE WIZARD OF OZ

By L. FRANK BAUM
With Music and Lyrics by HAROLD ARLEN and E.Y. HARBURG

Background Music by Herbert Stothart

Dance and Vocal Arrangements by Peter Howard

Orchestration by Larry Wilcox

Adapted by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company

Based upon the Classical Motion Picture owned by Turner Entertainment Co. and distributed in all media by Warner Bros.

Directed by Matthew Wilson
Music Direction by J.R. Cassidy
Featuring the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra

Playing January 21 – 30, 2016

Thursday, Friday & Saturday Evenings at 7:30pm
Saturdays at 2:00pm; Sundays at 3:00pm

We’re off to see THE WIZARD OF OZ at The Carnegie! Add a little fantasy and adventure to those gray January days with a trip to the Emerald City to see Dorothy, Toto and the rest of the colorful residents of Oz. Imaginatively reproduced for The Carnegie stage, and impeccably accompanied by The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, this classic tale is sure to delight fans both old and young.

Based on the hit MGM film, THE WIZARD OF OZ brings out the child in all of us with songs like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and “We’re Off to See the Wizard.” THE WIZARD OF OZ will be a lightly staged production reminiscent of our sold-out staging of THE SOUND OF MUSIC presented in 2014.

What does “lightly staged” mean? In a lightly staged production, music and storytelling take priority over the more physical aspects of the show. Audiences will see musicians onstage, beautiful costumes, evocative lighting, and creative settings. They will not see scripts in-hand, a multitude of props, or extensive scenic/costume changes.

THE WIZARD OF OZ is produced by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK MUSIC LIBRARY, INC., 560 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022.

THE LAST FIVE YEARS

Written and Composed by JASON ROBERT BROWN

Originally produced for the New York stage by Arielle Tepper and Marty Bell
Originally produced by Northlight Theatre, Chicago, IL

Directed by Lindsey Mercer
Music Direction by Erin McCamley

Playing April 9 – 24, 2016

Friday & Saturday Evenings at 7:30pm, Sundays at 3:00pm

THE LAST FIVE YEARS follows the joys and sorrows of Jamie and Cathy, a young couple struggling to find balance between career and relationship. In a creative twist that makes this show pure magic, we venture through their story following Jamie from the beginning of their romance to the end and following Cathy from the end to the beginning. However, their storytelling overlaps for just a moment, on the day of their wedding, for one of the most beautiful duets ever written for the musical theatre.

Beloved American composer, Jason Robert Brown, creates an extraordinarily captivating score that has been staged and sung the world over, and is now featured in the 2015 feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. This romantic drama is a night of theatre not to be missed.

THE LAST FIVE YEARS 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. Phone: 212-541-4684 Fax: 212-397-4684 www.MTIShows.com.
