2015 Season

The Mystery of Edwin Drood (1985) | May 28-June 20, 2015

Book, Music & Lyrics by Rupert Holmes
Based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Tony Awards: 11 nominations, 5 wins including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score

ASGT’s 50th performance season opens with the Tony Award-winning murder-mystery musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. This warm-hearted theatrical experience kicks off when the Music Hall Royale—a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe—puts on its flamboyant rendition of Charles Dickens’ last (and unfinished) mystery novel. The story itself deals with John Jasper, a Jekyll-and-Hyde choirmaster who is madly in love with his music student, the fair Miss Rosa Bud, who is engaged to Jasper's nephew, the young Edwin Drood. Our title character disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve, but has Edwin Drood been murdered? And if so, then whodunnit? The giddy playfulness of this play-within-a-play draws the audience towards one of musical theatre’s most talked-about features: the audience votes on the solution to the crime, resulting in a different unusual and hilarious finale every night!

 

Catch Me If You Can (2011) | July 2-July 25, 2015

Book by Terrence McNally | Music by Marc Shaiman | Lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman
Based on the DreamWorks Motion Picture (2002) and the autobiography by Frank Abagnale, Jr. (1980)
Tony Awards: 4 nominations, 1 win for Best Actor in a Musical

The season of intrigue continues with a musical comedy about chasing your dreams…and not getting caught! Catch Me If You Can is a high-flying criminal caper based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it. A teenager named Frank W. Abagnale, Jr. runs away from home in search of a glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination, and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer—living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when this globe-trotting con artist catches the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl pursues Frank across the country. Along the way, the two forge an unlikely friendship and discover a surprising way to work together. Filled with jazzy music, high-energy dance numbers, and a riveting story, this big, bright new musical was created by a Tony Award-winning “dream team”, with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray).
