Announcing the 2015 Summer Season
Twisting the Classics into Classic Comedy
Main Street Theatre Works is pleased to announce its 2015 Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson, starting with Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play ~ a warped retelling of Robert Louis Stevensonís Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Lauren Wilson, who wrote last summerís smash hit, The Golden State, takes a comical stab at this horror classic. While Wilsonís play will keep you on the edge of your seat, itís not because youíre dying of fright, but because youíll be dying of laughter. The San Francisco Examiner says, "An evening of exhilarating entertainment ... An inventive, original comedy of horrors." Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play runs every Friday and Saturday, June 19th - July 18th.
Rounding out MSTWís season will be Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Written by Christopher Durang, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is the winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, as well as numerous other industry awards. A hilarious spoof on several of Chekhovís best known characters, but you donít need to be a Chekhov fan to enjoy this zany comedy. Vanya and Sonia live in a quiet farmhouse where they grew up, but their peaceful life is turned upside down when their movie star sister, Masha, returns unannounced with her new boy toy, Spike. "Riotous! The kind of full-on comedy thatís rare on Broadway!" says The New York Post. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike runs August 7th - September 5th.
