Both heart-wrenching and hopeful, this new dramatization comes to life on the 70th anniversary of the diary's publication.  One of the most famous books ever written will move a new generation of theatregoers as they experience The Diary of Anne Frank this November at Farmers Alley Theatre. This beloved piece is a reminder to us all of the horrors of racial and religious prejudices and how far we still have to go.  As we look toward the future, this Tony-Winning adaptation is a performance that once seen, will not soon be forgotten.

From Tony-Nominated author Lucas Hnath, called "one of the brightest new voices of his generation" by The New York Times, comes the hottest new American play in recent memory, The Christians.  Pastor Paul has spent nearly 20 years successfully growing his church from a tiny storefront to a glitzy megachurch.  But today he will give a sermon that's about to shake the foundation of everything he's built - and creates a divide among his constituents.

Love fast-paced comedy?  With a dash of farce and a dollop of slapstick, it's opening night for one of the biggest plays on Broadway.  The show's director, producer, author and star are in a panic.  What will the reviewers think?  Will the show flop or flourish?  In this hilarious and biting take on modern show business, nothing is out of bounds and no celebrity is safe from its satirical wrath!  It's Only a Play takes you backstage like never before with outlandish humor and wry wit.

Farmers Alley Theatre is proud to once again partner with The Gilmore to celebrate the life and music of Wladziu Valentino Liberace.  In this moving and highly entertaining tribute to this one-of-a-kind performer famous for his charm, glitz and glamour, Liberace! relives the highs (and lows) of his prolific life, revealing the real person behind the persona.  Interwoven with a rollicking piano score spanning classical and popular music from Chopin to “chopsticks” and Rachmaninoff to ragtime, this tour-de-force will have audiences cheering the life of a uniquely American icon.

Closing out our 10th season with a flourish is the All-Time record setter for most Tony Awards in theatre history, Mel Brooks' The Producers. Join Max Bialystock, Leo Bloom and a chorus full of colorful characters as these two swindlers try to put on the worst musical in Broadway history – Springtime for Hitler!  The full genius of creator Mel Brooks is on display with hysterical one-liners, zany costumes, brilliant sight gags and more laughs than could fill any theatre on the Great White Way.  It’s a hit!
