I’m pretty jazzed about this.  A first for the play house, opening 2 plays a week apart.  Running concurrent for a few weeks.  A hefty undertaking, but the cast and crew of the playhouse are up to making it happen.

Opening tonight, 3/7/2015 is Einstein is a Dummy.  A play really geared for the family but especially 3rd to 8th graders.  The nerdy types that are too smart for their own good but don’t test well…I had one of those kinda kinds in my brood.  This musical production centers around the life of young Albert Einstein at age 12 trying to fit in.

As an adult, Albert Einstein changed our view of the universe. But as a boy, he struggled with the same issues
any 12-year-old might—keeping up with violin lessons, impressing the girl next door and, oh yeah, comprehending the fundamental relationship of space and time to the speed of light, of course. This uplifting play about a fictional day in young Einstein’s life confirms that each of us is both ordinary and special. The whole family will love this delightful musical.

Putting it together is a Stephen Sondheim musical featuring his music from several different plays over the years  It takes place in Manhattan at a cocktail party with 5 friends.  From what I’ve heard its a fun collection of songs that puts together an equally fun evening of theatre.  It will open Friday March 13, 2015 with a reception open to the public after the performance at a Sierra Madre location to be announced that night.

 A humorous, poignant and sophisticated musical revue. A celebration of the stage and screen work of multiple Tony Award-winner Stephen Sondheim. Featuring an award-winning ensemble cast, Putting It Together weaves a lyrical story around the emotions and
relationships of five guests attending a Manhattan cocktail party, studded with material from many works including Into the Woods, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, and Sunday in the Park with George.
