About the Show


Grand Songs. Grand Singers. Grand Night.

It’s the music that made a generation fall in love with musical theatre. Now, a new production, Directed by Michael J. Bobbitt, (Director of NextStop’s Kiss Me Kate and Artistic Director of Adventure Theatre MTC) cleverly reinterprets Rodgers & Hammerstein classics full of optimism for a new generation to discover.

NextStop Theatre has been transformed into a space that feels like an intimate modern jazz or cabaret club has been setup inside a musical theatre lover’s attic… filled with the treasures of Rodgers & Hammerstein audiences can wander and explore.

Running Time: Socializing with the cast and other theatre goers in the eclectic space is encouraged here, with the show being performed over the course of 1 hour and 45 minutes including one 20 minute break.

 


Why NextStop Picked This Show

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s A Grand Night for Singing is a tender and uplifting theatrical experience which gains a greater meaning when considered as part of NextStop’s lineup of shows as a whole.

From July 2017 to June 2018, NextStop’s shows, in pairs, explore opposing and seemingly incompatible sides of big issues and ideas. Our hope is by providing a relaxed and entertaining venue for the community to gather together and be immersed in stories highlighting diverse perspectives, that we can help break down barriers which divide.

Theatre isn’t passive entertainment. When we leave the safety of our homes, interact with strangers sitting next to us, and turn off our phones, it is a powerful act of unity. Patrons of the theatre may not always agree with challenging works but do agree to consider them. In the spirit of that tradition, NextStop’s lineup of shows for July 2017 to June 2018 presents a “Point and Counterpoint” year of theatre.

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s A Grand Night for Singing and Disgraced comprise our “Catharsis” pair. Together, these two shows will demonstrate theatre’s power of catharsis; first in expressing joy through music, then in expressing fear with words.
