North Coast Repertory Theatre’s summer show will be Tom Foolery (August 17–27, 2017) is written by Cameron Mackintosh and Robin Ray with music and lyrics by Tom Lehrer. This engaging revue delves into the witty, wicked and thoroughly twisted world of famed satirical songwriter Tom Lehrer. Four actors, stools, a piano and a healthy dose of attitude are all that you need to enjoy this delightful revue. Audiences will be beside themselves with the clever lyrics and hummable tunes. Rediscover the man and the songs that have delighted and skewered the world for over forty years.
Season 36 kicks off with a rollicking Neil Simon classic, Last of the Red Hot Lovers (Sept. 6-Oct. 1, 2017). Tired of his “nice life,” hapless Barney Cashman wants desperately to join the sexual revolution before it’s too late. His attempts at seduction will leave audiences howling with laughter.
Next up is John Steinbeck’s emotional masterpiece, Of Mice and Men (Oct.18-Nov.12). George and Lenny’s friendship is woven into the fabric of the country’s collective imagination. Still electrifying after 80 years, this is must-see theatre.
Around the World in 80 Days launches the New Year (Jan.10-Feb 4, 2018). Audiences are taken on an amazing adventure with the fearless Phineas Fogg, who encounters danger, romance and comic surprises.
The West Coast premiere of This Random World follows (Feb. 21-Mar.18). Through a swirl of nearly missed connections, the play follows a series of intersecting lives. Warmly humorous and lyrically bittersweet, this play investigates what it is to love, to lose, and be touched by the serendipity of life.
Next, British comic genius, Sir Alan Aycbourn, serves up a fast-paced, funny theatrical meal in How the Other Half Loves (Apr.11-May 6). His razor-sharp portrayals of three very different marriages promise to leave audiences in stitches.
The much-anticipated West Coast premiere of The Father follows (May 30-June 24). A sensation in Paris, London and New York, this award-winning play follows 80-year-old Andre, who has memories of being a tap dancer or an engineer, keeps misplacing his watch, lives in Paris or maybe London, and fears he’s losing control. It promises to be a profoundly moving, memorable evening of theatre.
Closing out Season 36 the West Coast premiere of The Soul of Gershwin: The Musical Journey of an American Klezmer (July 11-Aug. 5). With music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, and favorites like “The Man I Love,” “Summertime,” “Embraceable You” and a host of others, this will be a supreme evening of spellbinding music.
