Moonlight and Magnolias – December 3, 4, 5  &  10, 11, 12

by Ron Hutchinson

1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind. The screenplay just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful films of all time.

“Moonlight and Magnolias is an entertaining trip to the mythical world of Tinsel Town during a bygone era. However, through the comedy and mayhem, there are serious references to society and cultural concerns. One is how being Jewish in the 1930’s Hollywood was perceived. Another is the perception of slavery during The Civil War. Others deal with the Nazis coming to power, membership in Country Clubs, and how some romance ‘The Old South’. Hopefully, one day these and other prejudices will also be, ‘gone with the wind’.” – TOM VALENTINE Correspondent, Allegany Magazine

A note on parking:

Parking in downtown Saratoga can be a challenge. Please allow extra time to find parking when attending our performances.

Please Note those attending the matinee on Saturday, October 2: There is a Women’s March in Congress Park at Noon which will then progress up Broadway. This WILL present an extra challenge; please plan accordingly.

For those with mobility issues or in need of accessible parking: The Saratoga Police will be posting “No Parking by Police Order Friday, Saturday and Sunday” signs in front of Saratoga Arts on Broadway. These signs are being posted for US to make use of the space for a drop off zone and additional accessible parking. We will have Home Made Theater Patron signs for you to place on your dash board or under your wipers to allow you to park in this area. A Home Made Theater representative will be available to assist you.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

They’re Playing Our Song – February 11, 12, 13 & 18, 19, 20

Book by Neil Simon / Music by Marvin Hamlisch / Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager

A funny, romantic show about an established composer and his relationship with an aspiring young female lyricist, not unlike Carole Bayer Sager. Professionally, their relationship works beautifully, but personally they hit a few bumps: romance blossoms, conflict rears its head, and comic sparks fly.

 

 

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time – April 29, 30 May 1 & May 6, 7, 8

Based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens

15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

The Last Five Years – June 10, 11, 12 & 17, 18, 19

Book, Music & Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown

The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show. Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner, The Last Five Years, has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of TIME Magazine’s ten best shows of 2001. A testament to the show’s longevity, and spurred by the show’s regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. A film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.
