It all kicks off Dec. 29 with the return of “Run for Your Wife,” one of the funniest shows ever performed at the theater.
In this uncanny comedy, a cab driver manages to maintain two marriages – keeping each wife a secret from the other – until one mishap leads to an unraveling of his precise schedule. His double life is in danger of being revealed as complications and hilarious situations pile up faster than he can handle them.
Opening Feb. 11 is the first of two new shows in 2016, “Sister Act.” Based on the hit movie starring Whoopi Goldberg, the musical follows disco diva Deloris Van Cartier, who witnesses a murder and is put in protective custody – in a convent. Disguised as a nun, Van Cartier breathes new life into the church with her disco moves and singing talent but blows her cover in the process.
A sure bet for fun, “Guys and Dolls opens March 31.” Set in New York City, this odds-on favorite follows gambler Nathan Detroit, who is trying to set up the biggest craps game in town while dodging the authorities and his girlfriend of 14 years, nightclub performer Adelaide, who wants to get married.
Also on next year’s calendar are Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” opening May 19; “Church Basement Ladies,” opening July 14; “Menopause the Musical,” Aug. 25; and “Into the Woods,” Oct. 6.
