At the opening night of Lyric Stage‘s season closer, South Pacific — which is awesome of course — we learned what’s on deck for next season as well.
It kicks off in September with Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods (Sept. 4–13), followed Grand Hotel (Oct. 30–Nov. 8) and then the rarely seen operetta that introduced most audiences to Oscar Hammerstein II, The New Moon (Jan. 21–24, 2016). All will be performed in the large Carpenter Hall. Next is Irresistible (Feb. 12–20), a tribute to the music of Edith Piaf, in the smaller Dupree Theater. The season ends a year from now, with Cole Porter’s original 1934 Anything Goes back in the Carpenter (June 17–26).
