The smokehouse Scene 3 ...... . ..................A grove on Laurey's farm There will be a fifteen minute intermission Act II Scene 1 .....................................................................The Skidmore ranch Scene 2 ................................................................Laurey's farmhouse Director's Notes Fifty years ago, a remarkable event took place on Broadway: a new musical opened - nothing out of the ordinary in that, except that the curtain went up on a middle-aged woman silently churning butter shortly to be followed by an off-stage voice singing a ballad! Where was the jazzy upbeat ensemble boy-and-girl number that said 'nothing is wrong with the world' which is the way musicals were supposed to open? And when the fi rst act closed with a ballet, it left the first-nighters experiencing a sense of bewilderment over something so totally new and different from anything they had ever seen before in a musical. Fortunately, they stayed around for the second act- as have countless audiences since. OKLAHOMA! was the very first musical in which lyrics, music, and dancing are fused with the libretto to advance the plot and develop the characters- a novel approach difficult to appreciate now because almost every musical since has done the same. However, its success is evident because this landmark work has been pleasing audiences all this time. We're particularly delighted to bring OKLAHOMA! to you to celebrate its golden anniversary!

A warm, perceptive and humorous play that takes a sensitive look at the break-up of the Jerome family as the adult Eugene and his brother begin to break into professional comedy writing. The final chapter in Simon's autobiographical trilogy. WESTSIDE STORY WEST SIDE STORY Based on a conception of Jerome Robbins Book by Arthur Laurents, Music by Leonard Bernstein Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim directed by Linda Spriggs The Power Center for the Performing Arts May 18-21, 1994 This brilliant collaboration between a bevy of Broadway greats sets the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet in the contemporary urban streets of New York City and celebrates love's attempt to flourish in an atmosphere of hate and prejudice. --1#·';11'9B1 ti·';b 11 =&i9d1#1'·'11111#·'d3'·51'·'11'·'3**'*·i'5 Second Stage Cat 0 nA CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF by Tennessee Williams directed by Anne Kolaczkowski Magee November 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 1993 Hot Tin Roof PRELUDE TO A KISS by Craig Lucas directed by Patricia A.
