I Do! I Do!

Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones; Music by Harvey Schmidt (Based on "The FOURPOSTER" by Jan de Hartog); Originally Produced on Broardway by David Merrick; Originally Directed by Gower Champion.

"Together, Forever" takes on a new meaning in this delightful musical comedy. Marriage is center stage as we meet Michael and Agnes on their wedding day and explore their lives together over a period of 50 years. We watch them go through wedding night jitters, to raising a family, negotiating mid-life crises, quarreling, separating, reconciling and growing old together.

Swing! the Musical

"Two thirds rhythm and one third soul." That's how Fats Waller defined the uniquely American form of popular music and dance known as "swing." Swing got us out of the Depression and brought us through the War. Swing! the musical features timeless music by the likes of Duke Ellington, William "Count" Basie and Benny Goodman, and features the dance revolution that shattered ethnic and cultural barriers with styles like Jive, Swing, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, and Hip-Hop Swing.
