An emotionally powerful and intimate musical, The Last Five Years follows two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy, an actor, telling her story backwards while Jamie, a novelist, tells his story chronologically.


Named one of Time Magazine’s 10 best shows of 2001, the Off-Broadway smash hit, The Last Five Years, has been one of the most popular plays in the country.  Its continued regional popularity ensured The Last Five Years an Off-Broadway revival in 2013, and a film adaptation starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan (Smash, Super Girl) in 2015.





A Midsummer Night’s Dream

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Thomas Martin
Lynn Woods – Pennybrook Road Entrance

July 29, 2016—August 7, 2016
 One of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream revolves around four love-struck youths who must find their way through the forest and to each other, while overcoming the obstacles of the fairies and the will of the Duke.  Love potions are used, tricks are played, and one man (an actor, no less) has his head transformed into that of a donkey!

Please join us for our fifth annual Summer Shakespeare!  We will be returning to Lynn Woods for this delightful romp through an Athenian forest.  The beauty that Lynn has to offer will be on full display as the backdrop to this Shakespearian classic!




Silence! The Musical
By Jon and Al Kaplan and Hunter Bell
LynnArts Black Box, 25 Exchange Street

October 7-30, 2016

Winner: 2012 Best Musical Off Broadway Alliance

Silence! The Musical is a hilarious parody based on the Academy Award winning film. Voted Best Musical of 2012 by the Off Broadway Alliance and one of TIME Magazine’s Top 10 shows of 2012, Silence! is sure to have you screaming with laughter. More than naughty at times, the show features a chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill dances a hoedown, and Dr. Lecter laments behind bars about the life he’d like to lead.  The New York Times remarked on this show as a “hilarious takedown! Makes those naughty ditties in The Book of Mormon seem like trunk songs dropped from The Sound of Music.”
