13 Daughters Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

The beauty, history, culture and spirit of 19th century Hawaii fill the stage in this hilarious and heart-warming family musical.

With 13 DAUGHTERS, Chun, a rich Chinese merchant, and his wife, an Hawaiian princess, have a slight problem: by tradition, the eldest daughter must marry first – and she seems more interested in missionary work than romance. As if that weren’t bad enough, an old family curse stipulates none of the daughters must marry! But when the eldest daughter's mission work turns into matrimony, the younger sisters happily forget their decision to remain old maids and twelve very proper suitors promptly enliven the scene.

Big, bright and dripping with melody, author Eaton Magoon, Jr. – himself a native of the Islands – combines universal themes with a lush, exotic locale for a one-of-a-kind experience that will have your audiences saying "Mahalo nui loa!" ("Thank you very much!").

Eaton Magoon's bright and beautiful score strikes the perfect balance between big Broadway sounds and the pure melodies of Hawaiian tradition, including a hidden gem composed by Hawaiian musical matriarch Nona Beamer. An excellent showcase for a multicultural cast.

Ain't Misbehavin' Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

The outrageously prodigious comic and musical soul of 1930s Harlem lives on in this rollicking, swinging, finger-snapping revue that is still considered one of Broadway's best.

The inimitable Thomas "Fats" Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky-tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin' new beat, Swing. Although not quite a biography, AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' evokes the delightful humour and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the US, Canada, and Europe.
