Lyric Theatre Announces Season

Nunsensations

The Lyric Theatre has announced its season of musicals for 2011, which begins February 11 with the Los Angeles premiere of Nunsensations! by Dan Goggin, followed by the west coast premiere of Lust ‘n Rust, The Trailer Park Musical by Frank Haney, Carol Kimball & Dave Stratton, and concluding with the rarely produced Jerry Herman musical, Dear World.

Nunsensations! - The Nunsense Vegas Revue takes place in the Pump Room Lounge of the Mystique Motor Lodge in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Sisters have been told by a Hoboken parishioner that he will donate $10,000 to their school if they will go to Las Vegas and perform in a friend's showroom. Reverend Mother has serious doubts about appearing in "Sin City" however, after convincing her that "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas," the Sisters plan their program. With book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin and directed by Amy Rowell, Nunsensations! opens February 11 and runs through March 13.

Lust ‘n Rust, The Trailer Park Musical is the story of Steve, a corporate manager from New Jersey, who is transferred by his company to a small Southern Illinois town to run the local Agribig food processing plant. He moves into the Redbud Mobile Estates and meets the quirky characters that live in the trailer park, including his neighbor Connie, who is in the process of splitting up with her husband. Complications quickly arise. Lust ‘n Rust, written by Frank Haney, Carol Kimball & Dave Stratton and directed by Thomas Colby, will open on April 1 and run through April 30.

Dear World is based on the Jean Giraudoux play The Madwoman of Chaillot, and focuses on the Countesses Aurelia, Constance and Gabrielle, who deviously scheme to stop businessmen from drilling for oil in the Parisian neighborhood of Chaillot. The forces of idealism, love and poetry win over those of greed, materialism and science, still a relevant message for today. Book by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. Dear World, directed by Thomas Colby, opens on May 20 and runs through June 19.
