The season will include two new musical parodies from the Troubadour Theater Company, a popular one-woman play about showbiz royalty Katharine Hepburn (starring Stephanie Zimbalist), a new comedy by the up-and-coming talent Annie Hendy and an international hit presented in association with the Falcon's long-time friend Rita Wilson.
The season begins in Bohemia as the Troubadour Theater Company rewrites Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale as the musical parody A Wither's Tale (Aug. 11-Sept. 26), with the soulful music of singer-songwriter Bill Withers. Matt Walker will direct.
Zimbalist will star as Hollywood legend Katharine Hepburn in the critically acclaimed one-woman show Tea at Five (Oct. 13-Nov. 14) by Matthew Lombardo. Jenny Sullivan directs.
For the holidays, the Troubadour Theater Company returns with a brand-new musical parody blending the tunes of Billy Joel with the story of the nativity in The First Jo-El (Dec. 1, 2010-Jan. 16, 2011). Matt Walker directs.
Kicking off the New Year is "the sexy and irreverent new comedy about finding love," Annie Hendy's The Catholic Girl's Guide to Losing Your Virginity (Feb. 2-March 6, 2011). At season's end, Debra Ehrhardt "shares her electrifying and hilarious journey to the USA from Jamaica during the turbulent 1970s" in Jamaica, Farewell (March 16-April 17, 2011). It's directed by Joel Zwick and presented in association with Rita Wilson.
