The Bridges of Madison County, one of the most romantic stories ever written, first captured the nation's attention as a best-selling novel and became an irresistible, two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical. This stunning new production features gorgeous, soulful music by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years) that the Daily News hails as "one of Broadway's best scores in the last decade." With a book by Pulitzer Prize Winner Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden, The Color Purple) and direction by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, The Light in the Piazza), The Bridges of Madison County is the unforgettable story of two people caught between decision and desire, as a chance encounter becomes a second chance at so much more.

You and your family will be swept away by such favorite tunes as "Spoonful of Sugar," "Chim Chim Cher-ee" and, of course, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" as young Jane and Michael learn valuable life lessons from their unconventional nanny and the lovable jack-of-all-trades Bert. Be sure not to miss the magic of Mary Poppins, who teaches us that "anything can happen if you let it."
Na-na-na *snap* *snap* na-na-na *snap* *snap* -- you can't even say "Addams Family" without breaking into that trademark theme song.

From the writers of the Tony-winning Jersey Boys, The Addams Family tells the story of every father's nightmare: Wednesday Addams is grown-up and in love ... with a "normal" boy. Inviting his family to the Addams Mansion sets the stage for a meet-and-greet gone gothic.

Disbelief washed over director Joe Horton when he visited an obscure roadside memorial in Natchez, Mississippi. Surely, this gentle slope of green grass couldn't be the site of one of the most notorious slave markets in U.S. history? Was it a triumph or a tragedy that the notorious "Forks of the Road Slave Market" was now such a forgettable, anonymous place? This multi-layered ambiguity ultimately inspired Horton to create his latest work, the beautiful and unsettling A Hill in Natchez. Through a hallucinatory mix of music, visuals and dance, Horton tells the story of a woman and man caught in the "strange gravity" of slavery. Seen through their eyes, the New World is an ever-evolving mosaic of violent and seductive symbols dictating laws they are bound by yet can't quite understand. Experience this bold new work at The Southern Theater.
Acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher -- writer of Casanova with Heath Ledger and The Duchess with Keira Knightley -- presents Hamlet with... Jeffrey Hatcher. That's right, Hatcher himself takes the stage in the solo show Jeffrey Hatcher's Hamlet to tell the tale of the famous prince at Lowry Lab Theater. The catch is, this particular production of Shakespeare's famous tragedy actually has very little Shakespearean text... because it is brought to you by 10-year-old Hatcher, who once adapted, directed and performed Hamlet with his fifth-grade classmates while growing up in humble Steubenville, Ohio. Decades later, the successful writer ruminates on his early start on the stage, in a deeply-felt show celebrating theater as home, refuge and platform.

Nobody knows what bizarre and ridiculous things will happen as the presidential nominees duke it out for the White House, but one thing's for sure: everything and everyone will be satirized in this show at Minneapolis' Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre.
