The dead aren't just walking – they're SINGING!

Join us for the world premiere of this long-lost first draft by the legendary Gilbert and Sullivan, who together wrote fourteen comic operas between 1871 and 1896. One of their best known works, The Pirates of Penzance, originally debuted in 1879, but we now know there was an earlier, stranger draft of the show, which nobody knew about till now!

In Gilbert & Sullivan's never-before seen original draft, Major-General Stanley is a retired zombie hunter, who doesn't want his daughters marrying the dreaded Zombies of Penzance (for obvious reasons); but as always, (zombie) love wins out in the end.

In 2013, New Line artistic director Scott Miller discovered the original manuscripts for The Zombies of Penzance in the second sub-basement of the Judson Memorial Church in New York, hidden beneath some moldy band parts from Rockabye Hamlet and Shogun the Musical, and Miller set about reconstructing the bizarre original show as G&S intended. Gilbert's walking dead and their Zombie King now make their long-delayed world premiere. Miller has painstakingly reassembled these rediscovered materials into their original form, and St. Louis composer and orchestrator John Gerdes is reconstructing Sullivan's music.

The New Line cast will include Sean Michael as Frederic, Melissa Felps as Mabel, Zachay Allen Farmer as Major General Stanley, Dominic Dowdy-Windsor as the Zombie King, with Mara Bollini, Kent Coffel, Kevin Corpuz, Robert Doyle, Evan Fornachon, Joel Hackbarth, Matt Hill, Lindsey Jones, Melanie Kozak, Sarah Porter, Christina Rios, and Kimi Short. The show will be directed by Scott Miller and Mike Dowdy-Windsor, with music direction by Nicolas Valdez, scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Ryan Day.

The Zombies of Penzance contains adult language and content.

Join us on the French Riviera for a night of love, laughs, illusions and truths, and the triumph of family over bullies and bigots.

New Line continues its season with Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein’s subversive musical about real family values in a world that doesn't always value family. In its original 1983 Broadway production – before gay marriage was legal – the show was a safely old-fashioned musical comedy with a twist, but today’s political and social climate transforms this story into more of a drama, though still with a lot of laughs. Without rewriting a thing, La Cage has become a 21st-century musical – and a New Line show!

The original 1983 Broadway production ran four years and 1,761 performances. The show received nine Tony nominations and won six, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book -- beating out Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George. It's been revived on Broadway and in London multiple times.

The intimate New Line production will be directed by Scott Miller and Mike Dowdy-Windsor, with scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Ryan Day.

It’s a pill with a tiny supercomputer inside. Just take one, with some Mountain Dew, and a personalized voice inside your head will tell you how to be cool. Would you take it?

The Breakfast Club meets Little Shop of Horrors, as New Line closes its season in June with the new sci-fi rock musical BE MORE CHILL, with music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and book by Joe Tracz, based on the bestselling novel by Ned Vizzini. It’s an honest, fearless, funny look at life in the digital age, exploring teen depression, bullying, and other current issues through the comic lens of sci-fi films of the 50s, horror flicks of the 80s, and teen movies of the 90s. The show has been selling out everywhere it runs.

Jeremy is just an average, nothing-special teenage nerd -- until he finds out about the Squip ("Super Quantum Unit Intel Processor"), a tiny Japanese supercomputer in a convenient pill, which promises to "upgrade" him and bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine, an invite to the coolest party of the year, and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school.

Be More Chill made its world premiere at the Two River Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey in 2015, it's now being produced across the country, and it opens on Broadway this summer. BroadwayWorld called the show "a vibrant, inventive musical that makes the most of every moment." The New Jersey Star-Ledger called it "a high-energy, imaginative, well-crafted world premiere musical." The Tri-City News called it "sharp and smart, the musical perfectly balances the tragedy and hilarity of high school."

New Line's local premiere will be directed by Mike Dowdy-Windsor and Scott Miller, with choreography by Michelle Sauer and Sara Rae Womack, scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Ryan Day.
