2011 Season Announced
ReVision Theatre, a professional company based out of Asbury Park, NJ has announced their 2011 season of shows. With expanded programming to include six productions. The season will kick off with a benefit concert of Dreamgirls for one night only on Saturday, May 14.
The summer season will begin with the New Jersey Premiere of Xanadu and will run from July 7 - July 24 at The Carousel House on the boardwalk in Asbury Park. Xanadu is the hit musical that has transformed an obscure Olivia Newton John film into one of the hottest comedies to have ever his Broadway. The story of a greek goddess who seeks to inspire a hapless artist in 1980, Xanadu is one of the funniest musicals around with a book by the inspired Douglas Carter Beane.
In August ReVision will host the N.J. Regional Debut of Spring Awakening, with performances running from August 4 - August 28 at The Carousel House. This energetic, award-winning Broadway musical follows twelve children through their turbulent, exciting and confusing sexual awakening in a repressive German town. The musical Spring Awakening is based on an 1891 Frank Wedekind play, which was considered daring in its day for challenging the hypocrisy of morality and candidly addressing the issues facing teens as they reach adolescence. True to Wedekind’s spirit of innovation, the adaptation of Spring Awakening features a driving rock score, daring choreography, and an intricate and demanding story. Mature themes and language.
September will bring the East Coast premiere of the new musical, The Break-Up Notebook, with music and lyrics by Lori Scarlett, and book by Patricia Cotter (based on her play). Set to be directed by Peter Schneider, the comedic musical tells of the ways people accomplish one of the most difficult tasks in life–breaking up. The production will run at The Carousel House from September 8 - September 25.
October will feature the Halloween-time favorite musical, Little Shop of Horrors. With book and lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken, this cult classic will make its way to the Carousel House stage on October 6th through the 31st. One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, it spoofs 1950s sci-fi movies.
A family holiday show scheduled to be performed in December at the Paramount Theatre will be announced at a later date.
