DRIVING MISS DAISY

By Alfred Uhry

Weekends November 1 – 16, 2014

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

Revisit one of America’s most treasured stories of compassion and acceptance, starring Greater Cincinnati’s most treasured actress, Dale Hodges.

Ornery, strong-willed widow Daisy Wertham has just demolished another car, leaving her son no recourse but to hire her a driver. His chosen chauffeur? Hoke, a thoughtful, unemployed black man who couldn’t seem to have less in common with his wealthy, Jewish client. The odd couple endure humorous and heartwarming struggles in their forced relationship, giving way over twenty-five years to a closeness and understanding that transcends the Civil Rights era in the Deep South.

DRIVING MISS DAISY is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
Running time is 100 minutes.

 
Tickets $18 – $25

Special performances on Thursday, January 15 at 7:30pm and Saturday, January 17 at 2:00pm

The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in a landmark Broadway musical that is one of modern theatre’s finest accomplishments. Shakespeare’s ROMEO AND JULIET is transported to mid-century New York City, as young lovers Tony and Maria find themselves caught between warring street gangs.

With timeless songs including “Somewhere,” “Maria” and “Something’s Coming,” the masterful Bernstein & Sondheim score soars in a light staging in the spirit of the January 2014 hit THE SOUND OF MUSIC.

What does “light staging” mean? Audiences will see a small orchestra on stage, costumes, evocative lighting and modest scenic design. They will not see scripts in-hand or a multitude of props, scenic or costume changes.

WEST SIDE STORY 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.

 
Tickets $21 – $30

THE UNDERPANTS

By Steve Martin
Adapted from Carl Sternheim

Weekends April 10 – 26, 2015

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

Alluringly pretty housewife Louisa ignites debauchery in Dusseldorf when her underpants accidentally fall down during the king’s parade, shaming her stuffy husband and driving feverish interest in the room the couple are trying to rent. As Louisa tangles with hilariously lecherous tenants, her flirtations with fantasies and adventure reveal more to a woman’s life than serving her husband.

A riotous sex farce a la BOEING BOEING and IN THE NEXT ROOM, OR THE VIBRATOR PLAY, THE UNDERPANTS is the brainchild of celebrated comedian, actor and humorist Steve Martin.

THE UNDERPANTS is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

 
Tickets $18 – $25
 


The Carnegie and Kentucky Symphony Orchestra present
