CATS
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber Based on “Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats” By T. S. Eliot The show that revolutionized musical theatre is opening The Lyric’s 35th anniversary season! Winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats is inspired by the universally popular poetry of T.S. Eliot. Cats tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats, at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaviside layer. A true musical theater phenomenon, Cats opened at London’s New London Theatre in 1981 and ran for a record-setting 21 years. Cats’ London success was nearly matched on Broadway where it ran for just over 18 years. This enchanting musical features the immortal ballad “Memory,” as well as a collection of other whimsical tunes enjoyed by audiences of all ages.

Rapunzel (Jr. Lyric Series)
From the Emmy-winning team behind the mega-hit television series, Friends, comes RAPUNZEL. A familiar tale with a fantastic new spin, it has all the charm you’d expect from the minds that has been making the world laugh non-stop for more than two decades. Forced to live alone in a tower with nothing but her hair and her witch (literally) of a “mother”, Rapunzel’s sixteenth birthday has come - meaning she’ll be able to see the outside world for the first time, just as her “mother” promised. Scared to let her go, though, the witch reneges. Lucky for Rapunzel a young prince, named Brian, happens across her tower and calls out her as he’s seen the witch do: “Rapunzel! Rapunzel! Let down your hair!” Before the Prince and Rapunzel have their inevitable “happily ever after”, though, they’re going to have to face the wrath of the witch and few other hilarious obstacles.

Chicago
L-14-15 Season
Chicago
Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse Murder. Greed. Corruption. Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids. No wonder Chicago has been honored with 6 Tony Awards, 6 Academy Awards, a Grammy, and thousands of standing ovations. *Not suitable for young children.
