Agatha Christie's
- March 14 – April 2, 2017

Visit the Murder on the Orient Express website

The exotic Orient Express is about to go off the rails! With a locomotive full of suspects and an alibi for each one, it’s the perfect mystery for detective Hercule Poirot, n’est-ce pas? Wax your mustache and hold on to your passport—adapted from Agatha Christie’s masterpiece, two-time Tony-nominated playwright Ken Ludwig and multi-award-winning director Emily Mann will take you on a suspenseful, thrilling ride aboard the legendary Orient Express! (Matthews)

Graeme of Thrones - April 7, 2017
In this critically-acclaimed theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms, avid ‘Thrones’ fan Graeme just wants to recreate his favorite fantasy saga on stage as it should have been done. Created by a team of the U.K.’s top comedy writers and the producer of Potted Potter, Graeme of Thrones is a wacky and wicked parody on an international sensation. See it before the inevitable lawsuit! (Matthews)

BACH’s MASS IN B MINOR - April 16, 2017
Words are superfluous when talking about this greatest of all choral works, performed on Easter Sunday by the chorus, orchestra, and soloists of the Bachakademie Stuttgart—65 members strong. This is the world-renowned group whose recordings of Bach’s choral works under the direction of Helmuth Rilling set the gold standard. (Matthews)

ANOUSHKA SHANKAR, sitar - April 6, 2017
Anouska Shankar returns to her classical roots, paying homage to the teachings of her father, the great Ravi Shankar. Her latest release, Home, exemplifies the unique dichotomy between the ancient structure of the traditional raga and in-the-moment improvisations, showing both the meditative and virtuosic qualities of this classical form of Indian music. (Matthews)
