The France-Merrick Performing Arts Center, home of the Hippodrome Theatre, has two upcoming shows to get theater-goers excited.
“Jagged Little Pill”
Joy, love, heartache, strength, wisdom, catharsis, life — it’s all here in the exhilarating, fearless new musical based on Alanis Morissette’s music.
Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (“Waitress,” “Pippin,” upcoming “1776”) with a Tony-winning book by Diablo Cody (“Juno”) and Grammy-winning score, this electrifying production about a perfectly imperfect American family “vaults the audience to its collective feet,” according to The Guardian.
“My Fair Lady”
From Lincoln Center Theater, which brought audiences “The King and I” and “South Pacific,” comes a sumptuous new production, Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady.” Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was,” according to the New York Times.
Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” “My Fair Lady” tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed?
