Bugs Bunny at the Symphony
A fantastic fusion of classical music and classic animation, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony is created and conducted by Emmy Award-winner George Daugherty. The concert features favorite Warner Bros. Looney Tunes characters on screen in their most memorable moments, all with live accompaniment by the PSO. “The roaring kettledrums, the sweetly confiding strings, the braying brasses, and luxuriant woodwinds were every bit as vibrant as the colors and choreography of the animation on screen.” -- The Chicago Tribune

The Playboy of the Western World
Irish playwright J.M. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World takes place in the early 1900s at a pub on the west coast of Ireland, where a young man running away from his farm, claiming he killed his father, finds the locals are more interested in vicariously enjoying his story than condemning the immorality of what he did. At the pub, he captures the attention of the barmaid, who also is the owner's daughter. Kim Martin directs in the Rauh Theatre.

Pantagleize
Pantagleize is a wild rumination on revolution; an explosion of theatricality first produced in 1931 by Michel de Ghelderode, Belgium's great anticipator of the avant garde. Subtitled "A Farce to Make You Sad," it takes its title from the central character, a philosopher-clown unwittingly involved with a cell of revolutionaries who take him for their leader. He robs a bank, falls in love, and goes head to head with forces far beyond his understanding. Jed Allen Harris directs a new adaptation by Jay Ball.
