freeFall Theatre announces 2014-15 season!


- Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Tony Award-winning reimagining of Grimm's fairy tales is a glorious exploration of what happens, for better or worse, when wishes come true. A childless baker and his wife set out on a quest to get the child they've always dreamt of, but their hopes collide with those of other fairy tale denizens who have gone into the woods seeking their hearts' desires. Ultimately the price of a wish come true may be more than any of them bargained for in this modern classic of musical theatre, soon to be a major motion picture. Ann Morrison (Broadway's Merrily We Roll Along and freeFall's Bernarda Alba) brings her inimitable power and compassion to the iconic role of the Witch. With Sondheim's most accessible score and Lapine's witty, heartfelt book, this masterpiece asks if there is any such thing as "happily ever after. Oct 11 - Nov 9, 2014


- freeFall's holiday tradition continues to grow season after season. Bring the whole family to experience the magic of the Dickens classic brought to vivid life in Keith Ferguson and Bruce Greer's faithful and loving musical adaptation.

With its delightful score, award-winning costumes, winsome set, and memorable characters, what better way to celebrate the holiday season? Nov 29 - Dec 24, 2014


- In this world premiere production of Natalie Symons' new play, as in life, comedy can be found in the most unlikely of places. The King family are gathered together for Christmas and struggling to heal in the wake of a hate crime committed against fifteen-year-old Nick. But things really start to get interesting when his senile grandfather Harold threatens to take matters into his own hands. The Buffalo Kings is a touching and often fiercely funny coming of age story that examines the inner lives of a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. A star-studded cast, including Katherine Michelle Tanner (American Stage's The Amish Project and freeFall's A Christmas Carol) and Brian Shea (freeFall's The Vibrator Play) will breathe life into the world of Symons' captivating, neurotic, and lovable characters. Jan 17 - Feb 8, 2015


- Jay McInerney's 1984 novel about a young writer caught up in the cocaine-dusted 1980's New York fast lane explodes across the stage in Paul Scott Goodman's (ROOMS: a rock romance) rock musical. Lucas Wells (First National Tour and freeFall's Spring Awakening) is Jamie, a fact checker at a posh New York magazine who dreams of being a respected writer. His escapes from the disappointments of life lead him deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of the yuppie party scene. Eventually his obsession with his estranged wife Amanda is shattered, and he finds his way back to life. freeFall's production will immerse the audience in the decadent club world of the 1980's Big Apple while Goodman's tuneful, driving rock score envelopes you in the power of this contemporary literary milestone. February 28 - Mar 22, 2015


- This Pulitzer Prize-winner for drama in 1945 is a treasure of the American theatre. Filled with sincerity, love, and hilarity, Harvey will sweep you away with its lovable protagonist, Elwood P. Dowd. Larry Alexander (Broadway's Les Miserables and freeFall's Cabaret and The Normal Heart) stars as the earnest and unfailingly affable Elwood, who spends his days in the company of his best friend Harvey, a six-foot three-and-one-half-inch tall white rabbit that only he sees. When her brother's shenanigans interfere with his sister Veta's designs on being a socialite, she has him committed to a sanitarium. But Elwood and his friend Harvey may yet have the last laugh in this most-loved of classic American comedies. Following the recent highly-successful Broadway revival, Harvey still shimmers with lessons about friendship, familial love, and empathy. April 11 - May 3, 2015


- Shakespeare's magic-filled exploration of the politics of colonialism erupts with power and relevance in this one-man spectacle. Seen through the lens of Cuba's fight for independence from Spain, the play draws startling parallels between Shakespeare's final work and the post-colonial "New World." Prospero, rightful Duke of Milan, shipwrecks his conniving brother by means of a magical storm. As the befuddled travelers encounter the ephemeral Ariel, the earthy Caliban, and Prospero's sheltered daughter Miranda, old rivalries and new romances take root. Some are redeemed and others punished as pretense and magic are stripped away, and the characters find their way to the play's climax. As Cuban author, Fernandez Retamar remarked, "What is our history, what is our culture, if not the history and culture of Caliban?" May 23 - June 14, 2015


- Join everyone's favorite madcap aunt, Mame Dennis (played by everyone's favorite madcap comic genius, Matthew McGee) in the Broadway blockbuster that will have you tapping your toes and humming its hit parade score. Mame's fabulous martini-fueled life in New York is interrupted by the arrival of her orphaned nephew, Patrick. Through her unconventional outlook and with a host of colorful and beloved characters, Auntie Mame creates a charmed world of adventure for Patrick. Through personal trials and against the larger backdrop of a changing world, Patrick's Auntie Mame teaches us valuable lessons about the power of joy and fantasy in the face of life's darkest moments. July 11 - Aug 9, 2015
