The Colony Theater Company has announced its 2005-06 season lineup, celebrating its 30th anniversary and its fifth season in its Burbank home.
Charles Marowitz’s “Sherlock’s Last Case” kicks off the season June 8-July 10. David Rose directs the mystery, in which Sherlock Holmes must solve the mystery of who’s trying to kill him.
It’s followed by the West Coast premiere of “Indoor/Outdoor,” by Kenny Finkle, running Aug. 17-Sept. 18. Stefan Novinski directs the love story of pampered housecat Samantha and wild outdoor cat Oscar.
Evan Weinstein, who directed the Colony’s acclaimed “Candide,” helms “The Grand Tour” Nov. 2-Dec. 4. Based on “Jacobowsky and the Colonel,” “Tour” had a short Broadway run in the late ’70s. Tuner, with music and lyrics by Jerry Herman (score was Tony-nominated in 1979) and book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, follows a young Jew fleeing Nazi-occupied France, who must join forces with an anti-Semitic Polish officer smuggling documents to England.
Jessica Kubzansky, director of the Colony’s “Toys in the Attic” last season, helms Peter Shaffer’s “Amadeus” Feb. 8-March 12, 2006.
The final play of the season, which runs April 19-May 21, is to be announced.
