Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway musical is based loosely on Puccini’s opera La Bohème. It follows a year in the lives of seven friends living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in New York’s East Village. AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel; Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble; Benjamin has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends; and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general, always behind the camera recording the events but never playing a part.

  • The Honky Tonk Angels Holiday Spectacular by Ted Swindley
  • December 2-18, 2011

This holiday sequel to the hugely popular show, The Honky Tonk Angels continues the comic escapades of three good ole country gals as they reunite for a Christmas show like none other at "The Hillbilly Heaven Club" in Nashville. There are many surprising twists and turns in this musical comedy revue, including a gospel soul sister who also happens to be a psychic manicurist. Songs include a Motown Christmas medley, country classics like "Coat of Many Colors" by Dolly Parton and comedy hits such as "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer."
