The Shows of the 2018/2019 Season




Aug 31 – Sept 23, 2018
by John Kander, Fred Ebb & Joe Masteroff
Mary Chun, Music Director; Elly Lichenstein, Stage Director

Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd and remind them to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through those dangerous times? Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theater history, including Cabaret, Willkommen and Maybe This Time. Even the orchestra is beautiful in this Tony-winning musical about following your heart while the world loses its way.

The Great God Pan

Oct 12 – 28, 2018
by Amy Herzog
Taylor Korobow, Director

Taylor Korobow, who so delicately and lovingly directed The Quality of Life in 2016, returns to Cinnabar to stage this deeply affecting play about the interaction of identity, psychology, and pathology. 34-year-old Jamie’s sense of general well-being is destabilized by the discovery that he may — or then again, may not — have been the victim of  childhood abuse. Memory runs murky as Jamie and those around him attempt to come to grips with the past while facing their present truth.

Love, Linda: the Life of Mrs. Cole Porter

Dec 14, 2018 – Jan 6, 2019
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter; Book by Stevie Holland
Cesar Cancino, Music Director; Clark Sterling, Stage Director

The great songs of Cole Porter are ingeniously interwoven with captivating story-telling by his beautiful and glamorous wife, Linda Lee. Peek behind the glitter of her sensational life with her brilliant husband, to experience a unique, sometimes difficult but always love-filled marriage. As she tells us, “Just because a love between two people may be difficult to define, that doesn’t mean it didn’t exist.” Musical numbers include the hits So In Love, I Love Paris, My Heart Belongs to Daddy, Night and Day, Wunderbar, and many more.

Underneath the Lintel

Feb 1 – 17, 2019
by Glen Berger
John Craven, Director

When a reclusive librarian discovers a 113-year overdue book in the night slot, curiosity compels him to pursue the borrower. His search for answers leads to a worldwide, whirlwind journey, where he discovers instead the great mysteries of humanity. Called “powerfully human and ultimately sublime,” this comic tale reminds us that the joy is in the journey itself.

A Perfect Ganesh

Mar 29 – Apr 14, 2019
by Terrence McNally
Michael Fontaine, Director

The pilgrimage tradition is turned on its head when two outwardly unremarkable, middle-aged friends throw themselves into a rousing tour of India, each with her own secret dreams of what the fabled land of intoxicating opposites will do for the suffering she hides within. Who else but the golden elephant god could intervene? Fluid in his power to assume any guise, Ganesha is the spiritual center around which the play spins itself, drawing upon the tragic and the comic, the beautiful and the deplorable, until a breathtaking release arrives for both women.

The Barber of Seville

June 7 –  23, 2019
by Gioachino Rossini
Mary Chun, Music Director; Elly Lichenstein, Stage Director

Rossini’s laugh-out-loud romantic comedy has been entertaining audiences for more than 200 years with its outrageous stage antics and vocal acrobatics. Featuring some of opera’s most recognizable tunes, audiences are sure to leave the theater singing Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiiii-garo!
A savvy young woman must outsmart a pompous old lecher who stands between her and her true love. Hilarity ensues as the would-be couple, aided and abetted by the wily barber Figaro, run through a barrage of trickery that includes false identities, a most unusual voice lesson and opera’s funniest case of scarlet fever. With a few close shaves along the way, in the end, time’s up for the old goat and love triumphs over all.
