July 5 - August 4
What’s a girl to do? Daughter Junie inherits the job of taking over the family dry cleaning business, tending to Dad --who’s having a hard time remembering things -- and keeping an eye on younger sister Lashley – who’s fresh from rehab. Junie’s dream of being a country singer takes a hiatus until she’s called upon to give a personal touch at the Sparkley Funeral Parlor by writing and singing songs to make every final send-off a very special one. This world premiere musical comedy from country singer-songwriter Lori Fischer is perfect for a heart-felt, laughter-filled summer at Capital Rep!

Venus In Fur

TONY-AWARD WINNING - First Production in the Capital Region!
by David Ives
September 27 - October 27

This sizzling Broadway hit redefines sex comedy. Here’s a delicious, suspense-packed study of the erotics of power. A writer-director laments the woeful parade of actresses who have auditioned for his new play, “Venus in Fur.” Enter Vanda, an out-of-work actress, who is the epitome of every fault he has described: crude, desperate and needy – or is she? In the course of 90 minutes, we discover there is much more to Vanda, as she turns the tables and takes charge in this sexual roundelay about power and powerlessness.

Contains strong language and sexual subject matter.

The Mountaintop

THE BROADWAY HIT!
by Katori Hall
January 17 - February 16

On the eve of his assassination, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. cools down in a lonely Memphis hotel room after delivering the speech of a lifetime—when an unexpected visit from a feisty, young hotel maid pushes King into a confrontation with his doubts, fears, and haunting premonitions. The man behind the public image and the great ideals that formed a new America come alive in this soul-stirring hit from London and Broadway. The Mountaintop’s humorous, magical storytelling fuses theatricality with spirituality to reach a summit that will leave audiences breathless.

Gypsy

A MUSICAL FABLE
Book By Arthur Laurents
Music by Jule Styne
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

March 14 - April 13
“You’ll be swell…You’ll be great…Gonna have the whole world on a plate…Starting here, starting now, everything’s coming up roses!” Immortal lyrics from the Broadway hit often saluted as the greatest musical of our time! Let us entertain you with the rags to riches story of ugly-duckling, Louise, the tomboy who rose to national fame as Gypsy Rose Lee: the entertainment queen who put class into Burlesque. You’ll share the joy and heartbreak of Mama Rose, the pushy backstage mother who lived through her daughters, but paid a high price.

 

The God Game

WORLD PREMIERE!
by Suzanne Bradbeer
May 2 – June 1

When he’s tapped to serve as the running mate for a conservative Presidential candidate, Tom’s life takes a major turn. A popular, moderate Senator, he would add balance and appeal to the ticket. There’s just one little hitch: he needs to sound just a bit more Christian. Trouble is, Tom is an agnostic, who thinks religion is a private matter, not to be mingled with public life or politics. His devout Christian wife, Lisa, will stand by her man, as long as he doesn’t lie on the campaign trail just to get the job. The favorite from the 2012 NEXT ACT NEW PLAY SUMMIT, Bradbeer’s play reveals the private dilemmas that sometimes guide politics and asks the question, “Does the public have the right to know everything about a candidate’s private thoughts?”
