A Time To Kill

This fall, John Grisham’s debut novel A TIME TO KILL, one of the most celebrated courtroom dramas of the last several decades, becomes the first in his iconic collection of legal dramas to be adapted for the Broadway stage.

A TIME TO KILL is the incendiary story of a Southern community torn in half by an unspeakable crime. As the shocking news hits the public, small town America becomes the center of a media storm, where innocence is the victim, race is on trial and lives hang in the balance.

Part courtroom drama, part suspense thriller, pure theatrical dynamite, A TIME TO KILL begins performances September 28 at the Golden Theatre.

“It was my first book and the first that I have allowed to be adapted for the theatre. Rupert Holmes did an excellent job of translating it from the page to the stage, and I am happy that not only my loyal readers, but a whole new audience, will be able to experience this story in live theatre.”

—John Grisham

ANNIE

Based on the “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip which debuted in 1924 and ran for over 80 years, Annie is set in Depression Era New York City at a time when the economy looked bleak, government seemed ineffective and the average citizen was desperate and frustrated. Sound familiar?  With its hopeful message and unwavering belief in a better tomorrow, Annie became one of the biggest Broadway musical hits of the 1970s, running for almost six years and playing 2,377 performances.  The musical won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book (Thomas Meehan) and Best Score (Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin), the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, and the Grammy for Best Cast Show Album.

Beyond the inspiring story, Annie‘s return to Broadway also offers a unique opportunity to deliver a message of change and hope into our lives.  Drawing on lessons learned from their leading lady, the Annie team of producers and artists recognizes the importance of giving back and is committed to undertake fundraising and volunteer efforts that will benefit children and dogs through local and national charities and social service organizations.

Excited yet?  It’s “ANNIE 2012″ and it’s not to be missed!  You can bet your bottom dollar on it!

The Merchant of Venice

Direct from its sold-out run in Central Park, the acclaimed Public Theater production of William Shakespeare’s THE MERCHANT OF VENICE comes to Broadway. Academy Award® and Emmy Award winner Al Pacino reprises his stunning performance as Shylock in the must-see event of the season.

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE is one of Shakespeare’s most thrilling and controversial plays, rich with love and betrayal, forgiveness and revenge. The Jewish moneylender Shylock makes a loan to Antonio, a Christian merchant. Their loan contract, steeped in prejudice and centered on the play’s infamous “pound of flesh,” sweeps the two men and everyone in their worlds into chaos. Only the insightful Portia can imagine a way forward, but for her and those she loves, even “the quality of mercy” has its limits.
