Bullets Over Broadway


The 1920s come roaring to life with showgirls, gangsters and more in this musical adaptation of Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath's madcap film Bullets Over Broadway. Hailed by Time Magazine as “Musical Theatre Gold!,” Bullets Over Broadway is the hilarious musical comedy about the making of a Broadway show, filled with tap dancing gangsters, saucy showgirls, big laughs and colorful characters including an aging diva, a savant hit-man and Sally Struthers as the dog-toting Eden Brent. A young playwright who is in desperate need of financial backing for his next show accepts an offer he can’t refuse from a mobster looking to please his ditzy, talentless girlfriend. Loaded with songs that made the '20s roar, this six-time Tony-nominated musical features hits from the decedent decade, including "Let's Misbehave," "'Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do" and "There's a New Day Comin'!" This is one big, splashy and wildly entertaining show that is sure to knock 'em dead. 


Ragtime

At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing... and anything is possible. This sweeping musical portrait of early twentieth-century America tells the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair... and what it means to live in America. Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, Ragtime is the winner of three 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Called by Time Magazine “a triumph for the stage,” “Intoxicating” by the Associated Press, and "Explosive and thrilling!” by Bloomberg News, this acclaimed musical is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other musical.


Heartbreak Hotel

 From the creator of the Tony Award-winning Million Dollar Quartet, we are proud to produce the world premiere of Heartbreak Hotel. This brand new tribute to the "King of Rock ‘n’ Roll" is the prequel to Tony-winning, record-setting, smash hit Million Dollar Quartet that became the greatest selling show in Ogunquit Playhouse history. This tender story follows Elvis Presley in the early years of his bourgeoning career as he and Sam Phillips create the music that will forever change their lives. As Elvis’ career skyrockets, both lifting and shattering the lives of those he loves, a secret love story is revealed, a betrayal is discovered, and “Colonel” Tom Parker changes the course of history, all in just 18 short months. This world premiere musical features hit songs from the King himself as well as the legends who influenced his iconic music, with chart-toppers including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Tutti Frutti,” “That’s All Right Mamma,” “Shake Rattle and Roll,” and, of course, “Heartbreak Hotel.” This is where the story begins…. “take a walk down lonely street.”


From Here To Eternity

 The Ogunquit Playhouse is honored to be collaborating with Tim Rice and the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival on the rollout of the North American premiere of the epic new musical From Here to Eternity, based on James Jones’ acclaimed novel with lyrics by Tim Rice, book by Donald Rice and Bill Oakes, and music by Stuart Brayson. Set in Hawaii in the weeks before the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, this epic tale follows the powerful story of two U.S soldiers, the soulful Private Prewitt and ardent Sergeant Warden, as they embark on doomed and dangerous love affairs with the wrong women. As the infamous date of December 7th approaches, the claustrophobic world of the four lovers and the desperation of the soldiers of G Company splinter amidst an escalating war. The compelling story of men at war along with a fantastic new score is not to be missed.
