Barefoot in the Park
Tucson: 09/23/2023 – 10/13/2023
Phoenix: 10/20/2023 – 11/05/2023
Neil Simon’s most beloved romantic comedy, “Barefoot in the Park” opens as blissful ambitious young newlyweds struggle to get along in their Manhattan fixer-upper apartment, all while under the gaze of the bride’s neurotic mother and the eccentric upstairs neighbor. In a case of opposites attract – Paul is a successful lawyer known for his conservative and practical nature and Corie a sexy adventure seeker – they quickly face newlywed challenges that can try the best of marriages. Considered one of America’s best rom-coms, “Barefoot in the Park” is among the top 10 longest-running non-musical plays in Broadway history, and it was turned into an Oscar-nominated movie.
Scrooge: The Musical
Tucson: 11/07/2023 – 12/02/2023
Phoenix: 12/08/2023 – 12/30/2023
Adapted from the Oscar nominated film Scrooge comes a Christmas musical spectacular by Oscar-winning, Grammy-winning, and Tony-nominated composer Leslie Bricusse. “Scrooge: The Musical” is a ground-breaking adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” filled with songs that are as impressive as the ones he wrote for “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” The story follows the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he goes on a fantastical journey through his life over the course of a single Christmas Eve night. After a warning from the ghost of his business partner Jacob Marley, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future take Scrooge on a musical adventure that leads him towards his hopeful redemption. In a new version created uniquely for ATC, “Scrooge” will be the perfect holiday fare for families and audiences of all ages.

Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lynn Nottage’s play “Intimate Apparel” tells the story of a 1905 successful African American seamstress who makes revolutionary undergarments for an array of women – from high-society socialites to enterprising ladies of the night. Her business, innovative skills, and utter discretion are much in demand, but at 35, her personal life has taken a backseat. “Intimate Apparel” explores her forbidden relationships with an Orthodox Jewish fabric vendor, her privileged and struggling clientele, and a long-distance suitor who will profoundly change her life.
Tucson: 03/02/2024 – 03/23/2024
Phoenix: 03/29/2024 – 04/14/2024
“Master Class,” the Tony-winning play by Terrence McNally, tells the story of the uncompromising opera diva Maria Callas as she delivers a life altering master class to students at an elite opera training program. During the class, she encounters three vastly different students who are by turns hilariously crushed, soulfully uplifted, and profoundly inspired by her singular artistry. Based on a series of real-life classes Callas delivered at Juilliard, “Master Class” inspires us, transports us, and transforms us by carving a window into the soul of one of the most complicated and celebrated artists of the 20th century who pushed the boundaries of artistic sacrifice and quality.
