PLAY The Pavilion
September 6 - 22, 2013

The Pavilionby Craig Wright
September 6 - 22, 2013

Emmy Award nominee Craig Wright has penned episodes for popular TV shows like Six Feet Under and Lost. Now Cinnabar is proud to present his acclaimed play, The Pavilion. Hailed by critics as “an Our Town for our time,” The Pavilion is a tender portrait of two former lovers who encounter each other at a high-school reunion. Dance to old tunes with Peter, Kari, and their friends while they dance around the big questions. Is happily ever after still possible… or is that just in fairy tales?


“Funny, real, and heart-wrenching. Wright [is] one of those important voices that come along, every so often, to remind us of the cathartic and transfor­mative power of theater.” – LA Times

MUSICAL La Cage aux Folles
October 18 - November 3, 2013

La Cage aux FollesBook by Harvey Fierstein, Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman
Based on the play by Jean Poiret
Mary Chun, Music Director; Sheri Lee Miller, Stage Director

October 18 - November 3, 2013

Yes, you cancan! Cinnabar is transformed into one of France’s finest nightclubs for the exuberant show that’s earned 11 Tony Awards including Best Musi­cal. A young man gets engaged, yet he’s afraid to bring his fiancée’s parents home. Will he hide the fact that he was raised by two men who run a risqué cabaret? Or will love conquer all at La Cage aux Folles? This jubilant musical celebrates marriage in all its forms. After the singing and dancing – under the costumes and glitter – it’s all about loving that person in the mirror.


“An openhearted, old-style, big-time musical… Harvey Fierstein’s sentimental and funny book shrewdly juxtaposes a sense of the outrageous with the oldest, established values of marriage and family.” – New York Times

Underwritten by Karen and Mike Bergin of Bergin Glass with Frank Schomer

PLAY Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Menby John Steinbeck
Sheri Lee Miller, Director
March 21 - April 6, 2014

John Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize with heartfelt stories about ordinary people in California. Cinnabar proudly presents his masterpiece, a bittersweet tale about friendship and hope. Lenny and George can’t count on anything except each other. Working on a ranch, they save their dimes and dream of buying their own farm… but the boss and his flirtatious wife could spoil it all. After her poignant production of The Price, Sheri Lee Miller returns to stage this touching portrait of two underdogs in pursuit of the American dream.


“Painfully honest… Of Mice and Men packs a punch!” – Back Stage

Underwritten by Sandra O’Brien with Elly Lichenstein

OPERA The Marriage of Figaro
May 30 - June 15, 2014

The Marriage of FigaroMusic by W.A. Mozart, Libretto by Lorenzo DaPonte, based on the play by Beaumarchais
Mary Chun, Music Director; Elly Lichenstein, Stage Director
May 30 - June 15, 2014

Mozart’s music soars at Cinnabar with this rich and playful production of his enormously popular opera. Performed entirely in English, The Marriage of Figaro tells a luscious tale of seduction, deception, and forgiveness. The Count keeps chasing skirt, and the Countess wants to catch him in the act. So she conspires with two wisecracking servants who delight audiences as they outwit their master. It’s comic opera at its best, mixing saucy jokes and gor­geous songs of love. After a sold-out run of Carmen, Artistic Director Elly Lichenstein and Music Director Mary Chun reunite for this glorious marriage of music and theater.


“One of the most dazzlingly perfect and intensely human works in the operatic repertoire. In its inventive ingenuity and capacious sympathy, Figaro never fails to exert its allure.” – San Francisco Chronicle
