The Lee Playhouse 2022 - 2023 Season



Into The Woods

Book by James Lapine; Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

November 11 - 27, 2022*

     Stephen Sondheim’s imaginative, darkly comical musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This sophisticated story takes the main characters from the stories of our childhood - “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Rapunzel,” and “Cinderella” - and places them into the complexity of the real world.   

* Extra performances added for this production

Performance dates are November 11, 12, 17, 18, 25 & 26, at 8 p.m.; November 19, at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m. and November 13, 20 & 27, at 3 p.m.



Raisin In The Sun

by Lorraine Hansberry

February 3 - 19, 2023

    This landmark drama was one of the first on Broadway to examine African-American life on the cusp of the civil rights era. Inspired by the playwrights’s own family’s experience in Chicago in the 1930s, A Raisin in the Sun has become a

classic in the canon of American theater. This play tells the story of a lower-class black family’s struggle to gain middle-class acceptance on the southside of Chicago in the 1950s.

Performance dates are February 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 &18, at 8 p.m.; and February 5, 12 & 19, at 3 p.m.
