A New Brain, the musical

April 14, 2019

A New Brain is an autobiographical musical by William Finn, of Falsettos and Spelling Bee fame, concerning his bout with an arteriovenous malformation in his brain and the healing power of art through the character of songwriter Gordon Schwinn. The show opens with Gordon working at his piano to meet a deadline, irritated because he must write a song about spring for a children’s television host, Mr. Bungee, who dresses as a frog. At lunch with best friend and agent, Rhoda, Gordon collapses face first into his meal and is taken to the hospital. Gordon’s greatest fear is dying with his best songs still unwritten. Descending upon his hospital room are a hilariously absurd cast of characters: his oppressive mother, his supportive lover, hospital staff, a wise homeless woman and a hallucination of his haranguing, amphibian boss. Facing his own mortality and awaiting brain surgery, Gordon wrestles with the person he has been, the legacy he will leave behind, and ultimately, the person he will be if he survives. Performance Dates: April 12 - May 5, 2019 (no performance on Easter Sunday) Performance Times: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8 pm; Sundays at 2 pm Tickets are $23 for Adults; $18 for Seniors/Students/Military. Tickets can be purchased at tickets.thecolonialplayers.org or by calling the Box Office at 410-268-7373, option 2.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
Colonial Players of Annapolis

The Merry Wives of Windsor

February 22, 2019

Let me now take you to a time and place - not of the doublets, corsets and pumpkin pants of Ye Olde England - but of the shoulder pads, big hair, and Izod shirts of the bedroom community of 1980s Windsor...Connecticut. The well-to-do Page and Ford families are beset by problems typical of the upwardly mobile classes. The Pages have a daughter that has fallen in love with the “wrong sort” - not the doctor or lawyer that mom and dad prefer. The Fords are just trying to keep up with their neighbors and fit in. Until...Falstaff enters.  This down-on-his luck Wall Street trader has completely missed the Bull Market and is looking for other sources of income. He hatches a plan to ensnare Mrs. Ford AND Mrs. Page in a love trap, and extort money from them in order to re-bankroll his former lifestyle. But the “Real Housewives of Windsor, Connecticut” find out and devise all sorts of tricks and torments for Falstaff. Meanwhile, the Pages’ daughter hatches plots of her own to get the man she wants. Set in the free-wheeling, conspicuous consumption-driven, suburban lifestyle of the 1980s, this Shakespearean comedic farce will feature all the music, fashion, and cultural references of the 1980s, but with the language and characters that we love - it's Shakespeare and Shtick. After over a 20-year absence from Colonial Players...The Bard is Back! Performance Dates: February 22 - March 23, 2019 Performance Times: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8 pm; Sundays at 2 pm Tickets are $23 for Adults; $18 for Seniors/Students/Military. Tickets can be purchased at tickets.thecolonialplayers.org or by calling the Box Office at 410-268-7373, option 2.
