2018-2019 lineups for Proctors Broadway shows and plays at The Rep

Local theater to host production of stage musical about Founding Father.

Yep, next year will be the year when Hamilton arrives at Proctors for a run during August 2019.

That was one of the details in the Proctors announcement Monday night of its upcoming Broadway lineup and the next season at Capital Repertory Theatre.

The Proctors lineup includes many shows that are currently playing on Broadway, so this will be an opportunity to see them while they're still hot. And The Rep season includes a world premiere and new spins on some old favorites.

Tickets for both series are now on sale as part of subscription packages. Individual show tickets will be available closer to the season starting. Some shows end up being very popular, so you might want to plan ahead a little bit for tickets if you're interested in going.

On with the lineups...

The Rep 2018-2019 season

July 6-August 12: Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash
What is says on the label.

September 21-October 14: The Royale
"Jay 'The Sport' Jackson needs one more win to become heavyweight champion of the world, but in the Jim Crow reality of 1905 America, his greatest opponent may not be in the ring. Inspired by the true story of trailblazing boxer Jack Johnson, The Royale bristles with the thrilling rapid-fire dialogue and rhythmic punctuation of playwright Marco Ramirez (Netflix's Daredevil, Orange is the New Black). This powerhouse of a play brings to explosive life the ultimate fight for a man's place in history and packs a punch that will leave you breathless."

November 23-December 23: Miss Bennett: Christmas at Pemberly
"Spend the holiday season with your favorite Pride and Prejudice characters, as they gather at Pemberley, the stately home of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. In this charmingly imagined sequel to Jane Austen's masterwork, the ever-dependable Mary Bennet is growing tired of her role as dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings' romantic escapades. When the family visits for Christmas, an unexpected guest sparks Mary's hopes for independence, an intellectual match -- and possibly even love? This unstuffy, highly entertaining and warm-spirited play will delight Austen aficionados and new-comers alike -- just the kind of experience multiple generations can enjoy together!"

January 25-February 17, 2019: Red Maple
"Everyone wants to know, "What's the matter with Robert?" Since becoming an empty-nester, the usually solid and dependable professor seems to be falling apart -- just like the old red maple tree in the back yard. When friends get together for a cheer-him-up dinner, Robert announces he's had an epiphany that will rock the world of the stalwart suburban gang around the table. Things get shaken and stirred as the cocktails and confessions flow, building to a hilarious crescendo when an unexpected guest shows up begging another question, 'Guess who's coming to dinner?' Written by Capital Region veteran actor-writer, David Bunce, this uproarious comedy, set in the suburbs of Albany, was the runaway hit of the 2016 NEXT ACT! New Play Summit."

April 5-May 12, 2019: Shakespeare in Love
Adapted from the film.


FYI - The season ticket package at Cap Rep includes a cross-venue ticket to Hamilton at Proctors.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
