“The science geeks have all the fun in “The Amazing Adventures of Dr. Wonderful and Her Dog!,” a jauntily educational children’s musical at the Kennedy Center’s Family Theater. Featuring a book and lyrics by Lauren Gunderson, with a perky pop-show tune score by Brian Lowdermilk, this hour-long world premiere (recommended for ages 6 and up) launches its eponymous schoolgirl heroine on a quest to solve a cosmic mystery.” – The Washington Post

“It was exhilarating to see Dr Wonderful’s curiosity, her big hungry mind, and her great heart. Dr Wonderful is a hero for all of us–may we all leap towards the unknown with such bravery!” – Lucy Alibar, playwright and Oscar-Nominated screenwriter of Beasts of the Southern Wild

“The clever and adventurous Dr. Wonderful and her sidekick, Newton the dog, are a pair I’d follow anywhere! Dr. Wonderful demonstrates the power of curiosity-driven learning and deductive reasoning in this exceptional book investigating the phases of the moon.”  –Christina Wallace, co-host, The Limit Does Not Exist and founding director, BridgeUp: STEM at the American Museum of Natural History

Jun-27-17 07:00 PM Shelter In Concert, Starring Jon Cryer

Meet Michael. He’s a television commercial writer who lives with his roommate Arthur. Michael and Arthur are best of friends, but there’s just one catch… Arthur is a computer. Michael uses technology to perfect every part of his life. But there are some problems — like love — even computers can’t solve.

Two years before Ed Roberts introduced the first “personal computer,” two incomparable writers conceived a prescient and original musical about love, technology and the things we can’t control. Written by the acclaimed creators of I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking It On The Road, Shelter opened on Broadway in 1973… and closed only 31 performances later.

Featuring:
Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men, Sondheim a Celebration at Carnegie Hall) as Michael
Sally Ann Triplett (The Last Ship, Finding Neverland, Carrie) as Maud
Jeff Kready (A Gentlemen’s Guide, Billy Elliot, Sunday in the Park With George) as Arthur
Alyse Alan Louis (Amelie, Disaster, Pretty Filthy) as Wednesday November
Lynne Halliday (Inventing Mary Martin) as Gloria
Scott Clare as The Voice

Now, the musical returns to New York for only two performance at Feinstein’s/54 Below. A starry cast will sing songs from the score, including material cut during workshops and previews. With a beautiful, eclectic score by Nancy Ford and witty lyrics and a moving book by Gretchen Cryer, Shelter is a must-see intimate evening for musical theatre lovers.

Shelter: In Concert is presented as part of the Second Act Series, produced by Steven Carl McCasland and James Horan. Each evening of the Second Act series revisits a short-lived musical, highlighting its neglected score and inviting audiences to rediscover a forgotten gem. Previous evenings include: Onward Victoria, Charlie and Algernon, and Eating Raoul.

With an eclectic mix of music from classic Broadway to bluegrass and an acoustic folk sound throughout, Alexandra makes her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut with a story she is finally ready to share.

Originally appearing in the ensemble, less than a year later she stepped into the role of Wendla, which she played until the show’s close.

She has sung in concert at The Kennedy Center and with The Young People’s Chorus of New York at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Her television credits include recurring roles on Damages opposite Glenn Close, The Big C, and Royal Pains.
