1776 June 20 – July 22
Book by Peter Stone, Music and Lyrics by Sherman Edwards, based on a concept by Sherman Edwards
The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. It’s the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence, if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! Follow John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence by signing the Declaration of Independence. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for our fledgling nation.

ANYTHING GOES June 20 – July 22, 2012
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter, Book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman
When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Songs include “Anything goes,” “Delovely,” ‘and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”

Mornings are a little different at the Chanticleer Inn. This season we start serving Noble Coffee in a new way. In the past, we only brewed organic shade-grown coffee, that has not changed! The difference is Noble Coffee roasts their beans locally (just a few blocks away) and delivers them fresh to the inn.
This spring, I attended “Coffee 101” seminar by Jared, owner of Noble Coffee Roasting, in which I learned much about the chemistry of coffee and recommended processes to brew a better cup of joe. After some experimentation, purchase of some equipment, and rave reviews from my springtime guests, Noble Coffee will be the “usual” at the Chanticleer Inn.
