She&Her Productions 2012-2013 Season

12th Night or What you Will by William Shakespeare
August 10-26
Directed by Jeremy Riggs
A melancholy romp where the path of passion teeters between love and madness. Is love a guarantee or is it merely an illusion created by a hopeful heart? If music is the food of love, play on. Performed at the Just Off Broadway Theatre

Next to Normal book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and
music by Tom Kitt
November 2-18
Directed by Tiffany Garrison-Schweigert
"Next to Normal is a brave, breathtaking
Musical...It is something much more than a feel-good musical. It is a feel-
everything musical."— The New York Times
Winner: Three 2009 Tony Awards and 2010 Pulitzer Prize! Meet Diana–sexy, sharp and desperately trying to hold on to her family, including husband Dan–handsome, genuine and hard-working, struggling to juggle being a father and a husband. Welcome to the world of Next to Normal, the brilliant, evocative winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize that takes us inside the lives of a typical American family that's anything but typical. Contains Strong Language and Themes. A Kansas City Theatre Company Premiere. Performed at the Just Off Broadway Theatre

Ordinary Days by Adam Gwon
March 15-31
Directed by Tiffany Garrison-Schweigert
From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes Ordinary Days, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point.) Ordinary Daystells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences
ring startlingly true to life. Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex
place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home. A Kansas City Theatre Premiere

A Feminine Ending by Sarah Treem
May 10-18
Directed by Taylor St. John
Amanda, twenty-five, wants to be a great composer. But at the moment, she's living in New York City and writing advertising jingles to pay the rent
while her fiancé, Jack, pursues his singing career. So when Amanda's mother, Kim, calls one evening from New Hampshire and asks for her help with something she can't discuss over the phone, Amanda is only too happy to leave New York. Once home, Kim reveals that she's leaving Amanda's father and needs help packing. Amanda balks and ends up (gently) hitting the postman, who happens to be her first boyfriend. They spend the night together in an apple orchard, where Amanda tries to tell Billy how her life got sidetracked. It has something to do with being a young woman in a profession that only recognizes famous men. Billy acts like he might have the answer, but doesn't. Neither does Amanda's mother. Or, for that matter,her father. A Feminine Ending is a gentle, bittersweet comedy about a girl who knows what she wants but not quite how to get it. Her parents are getting divorced, her fiancée is almost famous, her first love reappears, and there's a lot of noise in her head but none of it is music. Until the end. A Kansas City Theatre Premiere
