“Heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting.” – The New York Times

A romantic farce par excellence. Based on the Ingmar Bergman film “Smiles of a Summer Night,” couples meet, part, and reunite during a glorious “Weekend in the Country” – all under the watchful eyes of the wry family matriarch and a harmonizing Greek chorus. The beautiful Sondheim score contains his biggest hit, “Send in the Clowns.”

“A masterwork, both daring and highly entertaining.” – New York Post

This haunting true story of nine African-American teenagers is told in one of the final collaborations of Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret). Falsely accused of a terrible crime in 1930s Alabama, the men face a corrupt and discriminatory justice system with varying degrees of defiance and hope.

“Usually we can only dream of a musical that brings as much realism and poetry to the picture as Ragtime.” – USA Today

This brilliant musical of early 20th Century America tells the story of an African American couple, a Jewish immigrant and his daughter, and a wealthy suburban family. Based on the 1975 novel by E.L. Doctorow, this tale portrays their struggle with discrimination, inequality and three distinct pursuits of the American Dream. RAGTIME continues Moon’s annual Musical in Concert series, featuring a 25-piece onstage orchestra and 40 of the Bay Area’s best actor/singers. Not part of the main stage season.

“The last new musical of the season is the best, it is The Pajama Game.” – New York Times

Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful as sparks fly between new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 ½ cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
