Upcoming Musical Theater Events

Curated and hosted by Ted Chapin in connection with the 2015 Encores! season.

February 2015 - The Life of Ira
George & Ira Gershwin are remembered as a duo, but after George died in 1937, Ira continued to produce witty, indelible lyrics (“The Man That Got Away,” “The Saga of Jenny”) for nearly 45 years. Join us for an evening devoted to Ira’s life and work – which went far beyond Lady, Be Good.

March 2015 - Gotta Dance
The original production of Paint Your Wagon bore the inimitable stamp of the great choreographer Agnes de Mille. This Studio 5 event will explore the evolving use of dance in Broadway musicals.

May 2015 - Bouzouki or Not?
From the Siamese palace of The King and I to the Russian shtetl of Fiddler on the Roof, Broadway musicals have often abandoned the familiar sounds of Tin Pan Alley in favor of ethnic musical styles and instruments. This event delves into the cultural influences that shaped Zorba! as well as other classic musicals.
