As You Like It @ The Gamm Theater

One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, inhabited by some of his best-loved characters and verse! This celebrated romance follows resourceful young Rosalind as she flees the corruption of court in search of a more compassionate way to live. Played as a merry game of romance and mistaken identity with her true love, Orlando, As You Like It is not to be missed. Join us as we return to The Gamm’s favorite playwright for a timely story about what happens when the old ways break down and we must find a new way forward.

Ragtime @ Trinity Rep
May 25 @ 7:30 pm

Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on the novel “Ragtime” by E.L. Doctorow

Directed by Curt Columbus

Tony Award-winning musical

Based on the celebrated novel, the Tony Award-winning Ragtime reflects America at the turn of the 20th century – where optimism and possibility are as prevalent as burgeoning racial and social volatility. The lives of an upper-class white mother, a Jewish immigrant, and a bold African American musician from Harlem intersect in ways that profoundly affect their families’ fates. A passionate, vibrant, Tony Award-winning score heightens the tenderness and tension that infuses these characters’ lives.
