Three New Musicals Announced for Norma Terris

Goodspeed will produce three new musicals at The Norma Terris Theatre in 2015. 

THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY:
Music & Lyrics by Neil Bartram
Book by Brian Hill
Directed by Brian Hill
May 7 - May 31

This unconventional new musical is a look at our surprisingly interconnected lives. Through a seemingly unrelated collection of songs, scenes and monologues, The Theory of Relativity introduces a compelling array of characters experiencing the joys and heartbreaks, the liaisons and losses, the inevitability and the wonder of human connection. Whether you're allergic to cats, in love for the first or 10th time, a child of divorce, a germaphobe, or simply a unique individual, you’re sure to find yourself in this fresh new musical.

MY PARIS:
Music and Lyrics by Charles Aznavour
Book by Alfred Uhry
English lyrics and arrangements by Jason Robert Brown
Directed and Choreographed by Kathleen Marshall 
July 23 – Aug 16

A new musical about the life and times of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the artist who captured the gaiety, color and heartbreak of Montmartre, Le Can-Can, and the world of Le Moulin Rouge. Inhabited by the colorful people he painted, it’s the story of a great artist who loved a world that never quite loved him back.

INDIAN JOE:
Music and Lyrics by Elizabeth A. Davis
Book by Elizabeth A. Davis and Christine Henry
Directed by Kim Wield
Oct. 22 – Nov. 15

This musical tells the unlikely story of a homeless Native American man and a Texas beauty queen who never should have been friends. He’s looking for a fight. She’s looking for a cause. As they stumble toward friendship, both ultimately discover that the look of a family is not always what you think. Inspired by true events, it’s a uniquely American story with an Americana beat.

The Norma Terris Theatre is located at 33 North Main Street in Chester. Season tickets are on sale now through the Goodspeed Box Office. Single tickets will be available starting March 29, 2015. For more information: 860-873-8668; www.goodspeed.org.
