GYPSY

November 9 - December 8, 2019

Music by JULE STYNE

Lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM

Book by ARTHUR LAURENTS

Direction by MATTHEW MCCOY

Bay Area Musicals is pleased to open our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY season with GYPSY, considered among critics and theater historians to be the best American Musical---EVER! Gypsy is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, and focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with "the ultimate show business mother." It follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise two daughters to perform onstage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. The luscious and recognizable score includes "Everything's Coming up Roses", "Together (Wherever We Go)", "Small World", "You Gotta Get a Gimmick", "Let Me Entertain You", "All I Need Is the Girl", and "Rose's Turn".  Resident music director, Jon Gallo, will be arranging and gathering the top orchestral talents for the largest orchestra Bay Area Musicals has ever had. The 6 time Tony-winning musical will be directed and choreographed by Bay Area Musicals Artistic Director, Matthew McCoy.  Come to the theater and let us ‘entertain you’!

THE FULL MONTY

February 15 - March 15, 2020

Music & lyrics by DAVID YAZBEK

Book by TERRENCE MCNALLY

Direction by LESLIE WAGGONER

Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty, a ten-time Tony Award nominee, is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show. The powerhouse team of Terrence McNally (Ragtime) and David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit) cooks up an electrifying book and score that rocks with soul and still has plenty of heart. Right to the end, everyone will be cheering on this misfit group of men to achieve their goal.  Leslie Waggoner brings her high-pace and original direction and choreography to Bay Area Musicals production. Perfect for a guys or girls night out! The Full Monty will be the musical comedy of the winter SF will be flocking to.

A CHORUS LINE

April 11 - May 10, 2020

Music by MARVIN HAMLISCH

Lyrics by EDWARD KLEBAN

Book by JAMES KIRKWOOD & NICHOLAS DANTE

Direction by CHRISTINA LAZO

*CONCEIVED AND ORIGINALLY DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED BY MICHAEL BENNETT

Bay Area Musicals is proud to offer a fourth production as part of our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON.  There is no other Tony-winning, Broadway musical that shows heart, hard work, passion, and dedication to the craft of Musical Theater better than A Chorus Line.  A Chorus Line is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the American Musical Theatre: the chorus dancers– those valiant, over dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who back up the star and often make them look even more talented than they are. Memorable musical numbers include “What I Did for Love, “One,” “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” and “I Hope I Get It.” A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, A CHORUS LINE was instantly recognized as a classic. Bay Area favorite, Christina Lazo, will be recreating the iconic choreography by Michael Bennett.

IN THE HEIGHTS

July 11 - August 9, 2020

Music & LYRICS by LIn-MANUEL MIRANDA

Book by QUIARA ALEGRIA HUDES

Direction by ALEX RODRIGUEZ

Bay Area Musicals will close its’ season with the Tony-winning BEST musical---created by the winning team behind Hamilton---In the Heights. Staged at the historic Victoria Theater in the heart of the Mission District and directed by TBA Award Winner Alex Rodriguez, In the Heights is sure to be a summer smash! In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. Bring the entire family and be swept away by the latin music of Bay Area Musicals’ production of this truly groundbreaking musical.

Mission Statement: Bay Area Musicals, a professional theater company, strives to stimulate and inspire the San Francisco Bay Area community through high-caliber musical theater ranging from familiar classics to challenging new works; to produce professional musical theater at accessible ticket rates; and to engage the community through performance, outreach, and educational opportunities.
