New Hampshire’s theater scene is alive and well for February and March, with a patriotic musical, a 1960s dinner theater piece, and a British technological comedy in the works for the next month. So hang on to your hats, folks, because it’s time for another monthly theater preview: Manchester Theater Examiner style!!!
First up: It’s a hilarious throwback to the 1960s with “Why do Fools Fall in Love?” which is presented by the Majestic Theater of Manchester. When three longtime girlfriends meet up for an impromptu bachelorette party, they end up discussing a whole lot more than viable dating options! Packed with such 60’s hits as “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me”, “I Will Follow Him”, and others, “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” is bound to be a fun romp for those looking for a good date night. For more information, or to purchase tickets, please visit www.majestictheatre.org. Note: This show is a dinner theater piece and reservations are required.
Next up is a black comedy straight from London’s West End. “Henceforward” tells the story of a lonely composer who spends his days surrounded by his robotic nanny and other gadgets. When his master plan to impress his estranged wife and daughter fails, he takes matters into his own hands…with hysterical results!!! “Henceforward” is presented by Branch River Theater; for more information, please visit www.branchrivertheatre.c
Finally, we have a patriotic musical presented by the Garrison Players of Rollinsford. ”1776” is the true story of our Nation’s birth and our Founding Fathers. With a memorable score by Sherman Edwards and plenty of familiar characters, “1776” is an American treat for everyone. For more information, please visit http://www.garrisonplayers.org.
