  • Dial M for Murder
    Oct/Nov - 2016

    Dial M for MurderDial M for Murder – See the Classic Thriller on Stage

    Though it’s best known as a film by Alfred Hitchcock, Dial M for Murder was first a successful stage play written by another English master of suspense: Frederick Knott (Wait Until Dark). In this NBSC production of the classic thriller, Tony Wendice plans to murder his unfortunate wife to claim her fortune for himself. He arranges for the perfect crime — but things don’t quite go according to plan. His wife survives and the contract killer hired to do her in ends up dead. Luckily, the police inspector from Scotland Yard is on the scene to uncover the truth. Dial M for Murder, a timeless masterpiece of construction and plotting weaves a tangled web of clues and red herrings, back-stabbings and blackmail that will keep you hooked from start to finish.

    This exciting melodrama had a highly successful run on Broadway and the road. “Remarkably good theatre, tingling with excitement underneath.” —NY Times. “It’s a holiday for the whodunit fans, and, as such, it couldn’t be more welcome.” —NY Herald-Tribune.

  • The 1940’s Radio Hour
    Nov/Dec - 2017

    Show Cancelled Due to Fire at Venue

    Show was originally scheduled for Nov/Dec 2017

    The 1940’s Radio Hour: The Hit Play With Timeless Retro Music

    It’s Wintertime 1942, and New York’s little-radio-station-that-could, WOV, is about to air its final broadcast of the holiday-themed Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor. That’s the setting for The 1940s Radio Hour, a timeless play full of classic tunes. The spirit of that bygone era when the world was at war and pop music is accurately captured as a harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.

    With its dance routines, swinging music (including “I’ve Got a Gal In Kalamazoo,” “Love Is Here to Stay,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Ain’t She Sweet,” “Blue Moon,” “Chiquita Banana,” “I’ll Never Smile Again,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Blues in the Night,” “I Got It Bad (and That Ain’t Good),” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” and beloved cast of characters, Radio Hour was a hit in Theatre in the Square’s first season back in 1982, and went on for a 25-year seasonal run. Now North Bay Stage Company brings playwright Walton Jones’ hit to the East Auditorium at LBC celebrating nearly 37 years of fun.

  • A View from the Bridge
    Mar/Apr - 2017

    A View from the BridgeArthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge: An American Classic About a Complicated Family

    Miller’s award-winning play A View From the Bridge comes to the LBC, produced by North Bay Stage Company. Like Death of a Salesman, this passionate drama about Italian-American immigrant life in the 1950s also examines the promise and the failure of the American Dream. It’s the story of Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone, a man who holds family and honor above all else — and yet betrays them both. Eddie is infatuated with the orphaned niece he’s raising as a daughter, but when she falls for one of her aunt’s recently immigrated cousins, their lives are set on a tragic course.

    A View From the Bridge premiered in NYC April 2014 to ecstatic reviews. The production subsequently transferred to London’s West End for a completely sold-out run. It won the 2015 Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Actor and Best Director. It was named the top theater pick of the year by Evening Standard, The Guardian and The Independent. The Times called it “one of the great theatrical productions of the decade.” The Financial Times called it “superb, searing and triumphant.”

    Nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play! Top 10 Best Theater of 2015! The New York Times, Associated Press, Time Out New York, Time Magazine, and Entertainment Weekly.

  • Guys and Dolls the Musical
    Apr/May - 2017

    Guys and DollsGuys and Dolls: Gangsters, Gamblers, Dames & More in Acclaimed Musical

    Performed in-concert with a live orchestra, this beloved American musical transports you back in time to Depression-era New York City… with a side trip to Havana. You’re up close in the action as we follow the romantic and criminal exploits of shady New York gamblers Sky Masterson, Nathan Detroit and the women who love them: Adelaide, who’s been waiting for a marriage proposal for over a decade, and Sarah, an uptight missionary out to save Sky’s soul. Frank Loesser’s musical masterpiece brings to life the stories and characters of Damon Runyon with terrific numbers like “If I Were a Bell,” “Adelaide’s Lament,” “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat.”

    With North Bay Stage Company mounting the production, it’s a sure bet you’ll be entertained. And, it’s no surprise Time magazine pronounced Guys and Dolls “the greatest of all American musicals.”

  • Man of La Mancha
    Jul/Aug - 2017

    Man of LaManchaMan of La Mancha – The Musical Tale of Don Quixote

    Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Man of La Mancha retells the timeless tale of Miguel Cervantes’ Don Quixote as a play within a play. Cervantes re-enacts his story of the mad knight, a dying old man who lives in a world of his imagination as he awaits his hearing in the Spanish Inquisition. The show features a treasure trove of some of the greatest songs to come out of Broadway, including “Dulcinea,” “I’m Only Thinking of Him,” “I Really Like Him” and the anthemic “The Impossible Dream.” Man of La Mancha is a remarkable show and one of the great theatre works of our time.

    New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, and The Outer Critics Circle Award for Production.  ★★★★ “Man of La Mancha” is a heroic joy” – The Denver Post
