The Carnegie 2013-2014 Theatre Series

The Carnegie is pleased to announce its 2013-14 Theatre Series, triggered in August with the killer vaudeville entertainment CHICAGO, its heart-pounding production numbers assembled by Cincinnati native Broadway veteran David Baum in his local choreography debut. November brings the uproarious sex farce and recent Broadway revival darling BOEING BOEING to The Carnegie, featuring the up-and-coming talent of CCM directed by their incoming drama professor in his faculty debut. And the 2013-14 season closes in classic comedy style with an imaginary six-and-a-half foot tall rabbit named HARVEY, directed by former Carnegie impresario Buz Davis in his first Carnegie engagement in nearly fifteen years.

The sexy, salacious jazz age sizzles in 1920s Chicago, where small-time show girl Roxy Hart becomes the toast of the town after murdering her lover in cold blood. But fame is fleeting for the hot jazz slayer of the moment, and Roxy and smooth-stepping lawyer Billy Flynn manipulate everyone around them in a high-stakes tap dance into the headlines and away from the hangman’s noose. One of the all-time favorites of Broadway and the silver screen, CHICAGO spellbinds with hot Fosse production numbers including “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango” and “Razzle Dazzle,” crafted by Broadway veteran and Cincinnati native David Baum in his regional choreography debut. *Closing Sunday, August 25 performance at a special 7:30pm time.

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

Weekends November 8 – 24, 2013
Friday & Saturday Evenings at 7:30pm, Sundays at 3:00pm

By Marc Camoletti
Translated by Beverley Cross & Francis Evans

Directed by Brant Russell

Bernard is engaged to Gloria. And to Gabriella. And to Gretchen. Three beautiful flight attendants kept secret from each other only by Bernard’s precise timetables of flights in and out of Paris. But when Boeing invents a faster engine, Bernard’s three foxy fianceés converge on his swank flat at the same time, igniting a mad dash of slamming doors, hidden women and nick-of-time maneuvers as Bernard tries desperately to save his perfect bachelor fantasy.

Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for “Best Revival of a Play” and immortalized in 1965 by Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis, BOEING BOEING is a high-flying physical comedy classic featuring the exciting emerging talent of CCM Drama in the much anticipated debut of their new faculty director.

By Mary Chase
Directed by Buz Davis

Elwood P. Dowd is well-liked, and inexhaustibly happy, and from a respected family… and his best friend is an invisible man-sized rabbit named Harvey. Committing Elwood to a sanitarium, his social-climbing sister Veta is herself mistaken as loony while Elwood and Harvey gleefully carry out their bon vivant cocktail calendar with the hospital staff in hilarious pursuit.

Emeritus Carnegie impresario Buz Davis returns after a nearly fifteen-year hiatus and multimillion dollar renovation to direct the Pulitzer Prize winning classic, popularized by the 1950 film starring Jimmy Stewart.
