Mac-Haydn Theatre Presents She Loves Me

The Mac-Haydn’s latest production, She Loves Me, is running now through August 22nd.

Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm, romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old-world elegance. Set in a 1930s European perfumery, two feuding shop clerks both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper. They now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown.

Alumna Kelly Gabrielle Murphy returns to the Mac-Haydn as soprano Amalia Balash, after touring with Fiddler on the Roof as Tzeitel nationally before the pandemic. Murphy returns following her fan-favorite performances at the Mac-Haydn as Sophie in Mamma Mia! (2018), Johanna in Sweeney Todd (2017), and Jolene in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (2017).

Newcomer Xander James makes his Mac-Haydn debut as Georg Nowack after a ten-year hiatus from live theatre. James currently works as a professional musician based in New York City, and his previous stage credits include Henry in Next to Normal, Chip in …Spelling Bee, and Jud in Oklahoma.

Rounding out the cast are returnees Erin Spears Ledford as Ilona Ritter, Andrew Burton Kelley as Steven Kodaly, Gabe Belyeu as Mr. Maraczek, William Taitel as Ladislav Sipos and Brian Wagner as Keller. Anthony Velez, continuing his debut season at the Mac-Haydn, is Arpad Laszlo.

She Loves Me is directed by Producing Artistic Director John Saunders, choreographed by Ashley DeLane Burger and music directed by David Maglione, with costume design by Bethany Marx, hair and makeup design by Matthew Oliver, lighting design by Andrew Gmoser, props by Emily Spateholts, sound design by Corbin White, and scenic design by Erin Kiernan

‘Night and Day, Love Lost and Found Through the Eyes of Cole Porter’ at The Theater Barn

The Theater Barn, in New Lebanon, presents Night and Day, Love Lost and Found Through the Eyes of Cole Porter, now through August 15th. 

This show is much more than a musical revue as it tells an original story entirely through the lyrics of Cole Porter. His beloved songs are arranged into a romantic musical that will have you tapping your toes as you sing along. Taking place in a Berkshire’s mansion, circa 1930, we see how the love our couples feel at night creates an intricacy of relationship struggles for them the next day. Only the second production ever produced, this regional premiere is going to be ‘Too Darn Hot’ to miss.

Based on an idea by Robert Cacioppo

Conceived and written by Robert Cacioppo with Arthur D’Alessio

Mac-Haydn Theatre Presents Pippin

The Mac-Haydn kicks off their 2021 season with a new production of Pippin. The show opens on July 29th, with performances through August 8.

There’s magic to do when a young man learns the true meaning of glory, love and war in Stephen Schwartz’s iconic and unforgettable musical masterpiece. Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power. In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Book by Roger O. Hirson

Being staged for the first time ever at the Mac-Haydn, Pippin promises to be a magical start to the 2021 season.
