- OUR TOWN
- by Thornton Wilder
November 3, 4 and 5
- Described by Edward Albee as "the greatest American play ever written," Our Town presents the small fictional town of Grover’s Corners and its citizens in three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage" and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, the play depicts the simple daily lives of the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. Thornton Wilder's beloved and timeless play, full of profound truths and harsh realities, reminds audiences of the enduring power of theatre.

In roaring twenties Chicago, chorus girl Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap... until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess," Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune... and acquittal. With some of the most famous musical theatre songs of all time, this hit show satirizes America's obsession with celebrity culture and brings jazz and "Razzle Dazzle" to the stage.
