Classic Stage Company has built a reputation for world-class productions of the great works of theatre, from the Greeks, to Shakespeare, Chekhov, Beckett and Pinter. Now in our 45th Anniversary Season, we are turning our efforts to one of America’s great contributions to the canon – the musical, a form of theatre largely born in New York City.
CSC’s Musical Theatre Initiative aspires to take the next step in exploring and celebrating the extraordinary heritage of the past hundred years of this truly American art form. To launch this bold initiative, we are mounting one of the landmarks of contemporary musical theatre: Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s PASSION, helmed by renowned director John Doyle (who won the Tony Award for his revelatory remounting of Sondheim’s SWEENEY TODD).
Future productions under consideration include works that will benefit from the unique chamber nature of CSC’s space or that may not have been fully understood or appreciated when they were first presented – whose music and themes have grown over the years and are ready for a fresh hearing.
By joining the Musical Theatre Initiative, you are not only supporting the rediscovery of important works of American musical theatre, you are becoming part of an exclusive group of theatre lovers in New York City, with access to sold-out performances, opening night parties and special insider events with great artists such as Stephen Sondheim, John Doyle, Walter Bobbie and others.
