About Chess, The Musical

The collaborators on Chess are giants of rock music and rock musicals (such as, Mama Mia!) and they have created a complex rock opera that played to full Broadway houses and standing ovations.

Here the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super power politics and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the earnest Russian champion, the loutish American chess star and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American but falls for the Russian.

From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes One Night in Bangkok, Someone Else’s Story, Pity the Child and Heaven Help My Heart.

La Cage Aux Folles, at the Camelot Theatre


La Cage Aux Folles

June 22 – July 31, 2016 at the Camelot Theatre

La Cage aux Folles: Music & Lyrics by Jerry Herman and Book by Harvey Fierstein

Poster Playbill for La Cage Aux Folles playing at the Camelot theater

 

About La Cage aux Folles

This Tony Award Winning musical remains one of Broadway’s all time biggest hits!

After twenty years of un-wedded bliss, Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse, get a bit of both when Georges’ son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, narcissistic politician.

Further complicating the situation is the ‘family business’: Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the “star” performer ‘Zaza’. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as “normal” when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results.

Musical numbers include With You on My Arm, I Am What I Am and The Best of Times is Now.

Sweet Charity playbill/poster at the Camelot Theater

Sweet Charity

This Tony-winning musical is a tender, poignant and very funny story of the adventures, or rather the misadventures, in the ways of love encountered by the gullible and guileless lady Charity Hope Valentine. Sweet Charity is a dance hostess who always gives her heart and dreams to the wrong men and sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through her romances in the world of Times Square. From her cynical trio of girlfriends at the dance hall, to the phony evangelist, the Coney Island “fun people,” and the YMHA “self-improvers,” every character has a particular talent for looking at the truly amusing side of life. Musical numbers include Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now and There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This.

“The 39 Steps” Oregon Cabaret Theater Sept 10 – Nov 8, 2015


The 39 Steps

The 39 Steps

The 39 Steps

Based on the novel by John Buchan
Adapted by Patrick Barlow from an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon

A man with a boring mundane life finds himself pursued by a mysterious organization known only as the ‘39 Steps’.  Soon after, a woman he just met is murdered in his apartment. Part Hitchcock masterpiece, part spy novel, part over-the-top comedy, this two-time Tony-winning play is a fast-paced whodunit featuring more than a 150 characters, all played by a talented ensemble of four, featuring an onstage plane crash, a chase on top of moving train cars, some old-fashioned romance and, of course, non-stop laughs.

Plays from September 10 – November 8, for tickets go to the Oregon Cabaret Theatre,
