THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES: Created by Roger Bean, this off-Broadway hit takes audiences to the Springfield High School prom in the late 1950s.

A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC: Inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s “Smiles of a Summer Night,” Stephen Sondheim developed this musical which takes its English name from the German of Mozart’s Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major.
