The Theater Barn Announces 37th Summer and Fall Seasons

Featuring Five Shows New to the ‘Barn’s Stage

NEW LEBANON — The Theater Barn is pleased to announce that their 37th Anniversary Season will open on Friday, June 26, 2020 at 8pm with playwright and comedic genius Alan Aychbourn’s Tony Award® winning comedy Living Together. This hysterical show is the first part of his trilogy called The Norman Conquests, which earned him best revival of a play in 2009. The audience is invited to join the cast and crew for wine and hors d’oeuvres after the show opening night.

The annual tradition continues at the ‘Barn with a Berkshire premier by Dame Agatha Christie. Based on her short story, Philomel Cottage, The Stranger is a haunting psychological affair and offers an early look at Christie as a young and vibrant writer of murder and mayhem. The first of three musicals Night and Day: Love Lost and Found Through the Eyes of Cole Porter is an originally conceived romantic comedy featuring the music and lyrics of Cole Porter, and spins a romantic story of a love affair gone awry that is just ‘Too Darn Hot’ to miss! Composers and lyricists Pasek & Paul (Dear Evan Hanson, A Christmas Story) bring their first big success in the award winning Off-Broadway musical, Dogfight, telling a poignant story in a life changing evening between two friends. An audience favorite, Urinetown, returns to the New Lebanon stage to complete their summer season. Last produced at the ‘Barn in 2006 to sold out audiences, this hilarious musical satire has hauntingly familiar themes decades later.

The fall season encore at the ‘Barn is David Lyndsay-Abaire’s 2016 Tony Award® winning comedic play, Good People, straight out of Boston’s infamous ‘Irish Southie’ neighborhood. Poignant and brave, the humor abounds in Abaire’s focus on what it means to be down on your luck in our world today.
