The Frogs playfully explores the great challenges of human existence: confronting our fears, understanding life and death, and challenging the distractions that can prevent us from achieving our goals. This boisterously hilarious yet poignant musical follows Dionysos, Greek god of wine and drama, and his slave Xanthias on a journey to Hades to collect renowned critic and playwright George Bernard Shaw so that he may enlighten the easily misled and coerced masses of Earth. Along this journey, Dionysos and Xanthias meet Herakles, Charon, Pluto, and of course, the chorus of frogs. Then, Shakespeare shows up and starts declaiming his greatest hits; and before long he engages in a battle of words with Mr. Shaw. Who will win the honor of becoming reincarnated: The Bard or Bernard? The Frogs stays true to its heritage, mixing Aristophanic pratfall satire with a Sondheim score that swings from witty to pretty to rambunctious, but also mirrors the Greek original for the serious issue of the role of the arts in a world beset by war and folly.

The other farmyard fowl, however ridicule him, driving him into the eager arms of Tom Cat. Ugly escapes by the skin of his teeth, but with night falling he becomes lost... Winner of 2000 Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

Jonathan Larson s autobiographical musical of a success-starved artist, fast (and frustratedly) approaching his 30th birthday. It s the week of Jonathan s 30th Birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city - Tick... His best friend has bought a BMW and is moving uptown - Tick... and Jon s waiting tables, trying to write the great American musical, and feeling the pressure to choose between holding onto dreams or selling out for money - Boom! Jonathan Larson, who tragically died of an aortic aneurysm shortly before the opening of his huge smash hit Rent, first conceived of Tick, Tick...Boom! in 1990 as a one man musical monologue about a young composer on the brink of turning 30. David Auburn (who also wrote Proof) has taken Larson s multi-character musical monologue and turned it into a show for 3 actors portraying numerous characters.
The show is a modern love story told with humour - a quirky tale of boy meets girl... and then meets boy, with the ‘help’ of a visiting angel whose matchmaking efforts go awry. And yes, the main story is a gay love story. But as the reviews first time round were keen to point out this is a show for everyone, regardless of sexuality. It is a story of young love and everyone’s basic need for companionship, or even just a hug... whether it’s the girl who wants to be married, the trendy young clubber, the busy TV chef working anti social hours or the ambitious lawyer.
Whisper House is a "dark and thrilling musical ghost story" about the goings on in a lighthouse on the remote East Coast of America at the height of World War II.
The Otehr Palace
Set against a backdrop of Manhattan decadence and 1920's excess, The Wild Party tells the story of Queenie and Burrs, a Vaudeville showgirl and a Vaudeville clown whose relationship is marked by vicious behaviour and recklessness. In an attempt to salvage their toxic union, they decide to throw a party to end all parties. The guests are a vivid collection of the unruly and the undone: a cocaine-sniffing bisexual playboy; a washed-up boxer; a diva of indeterminate age; a fresh-faced ing?nue; and a handsome Valentino who catches Queenie's roving eye. The jazz and gin soaked party rages to a mounting sense of threat, as artifice and illusion are stripped away. But when midnight debauchery turns into tragedy, the revellers must sober up and face reality. After all, no party lasts forever.
