Love Letters, by A.R. Gurney

Arts Center Theatre at Marco Town Center

A.R. Gurney has wittily captured the manners of upper-middle-class WASP America, but never as gracefully or with such dazzling economy as in Love Letters. Tracing the lifelong correspondence of the staid, dutiful lawyer Andrew Makepeace Ladd I and the lively, unstable artist Melissa Gardner, the story of their bittersweet relationship gradually unfolds from what is written–and what is left unsaid–in their letters. A smash hit both off and on Broadway, Love Letterscaptures Andy and Melissa with a precision of detail and depth of feeling that only Gurney can command.

Five unique casts will be performing in rotation.

‘Til Death DO Us Part… You First, with Peter Fogel

Arts Center Theatre at Marco Town Center

She’s Romantic. He’s Hopeless.

“Uproarious Belly Laughs! A powerhouse on stage, Fogel captivates his audience with wacky character voices and bold gestures!” – Broadwayworld.com

 Eternal Bachelor Peter Fogel has major commitment issues as the love of his life has just broken up with him on Valentine’s Day. He senses his own mortality and after much soul searching he decides to revisit the scene of all his romantic disasters. 

Our hapless Lothario mixes his signature wit along with riotous relatable characters and takes us on a whirlwind comedic journey of searching for his soul mate and the meaning of a real commitment. Fogel laments: “The longest relationship I’ve had in my entire life …is with T-Mobile!” Young or old, divorced or married… if you’ve even been single (and that’s everyone) … and want to experience (again) the feeling of finding that Special Person to spend the rest of your life with — then you’ll want to fasten your seat belt for 80 minutes of Non-Stop laughs with Peter Fogel’s ‘Til Death Do Us Part … You First!

The Carl Granieri Ochestra’s Voyces

Five vocalists singing in tight SSATB harmony performing intricate Manhattan Style vocal arrangements of songs from every era and genre backed by Carl Granieri on keyboard. WOW!

What makes this really great it that the vocalists featured are selected from the CGO Stars of Tomorrow Educational Program, which develops the talents and provides performing opportunities for aspiring young vocalists backed onstage by top professional players. But make no mistake. This is not a student show. This is as professional a performance as you will ever see on any stage anywhere.

Repertoire includes vocal harmony from Doo Wop to top 40 hits, and everything in between.

“In the Still of the Night” by the Crests, “Windy” by the Association, “Route 66” by Manhattan Transfer, “Mr. Sandman” by the Chordettes, Frankie Valli’s Jersey Boys and Jazz hits like Chick Corea’s “Spain”.

After SOLD-OUT performances in Naples, we are excited to welcome Voyce to Marco island!

Paradise and Mr. Prince

Arts Center Theatre at Marco Town Center

 Paradise and Mr. Prince is the second in a planned series of three plays, all set on beautiful Marco Island.

In the current play, set some years later, Paradise and Rose are living on the Island together with her son, Grady. Suddenly their comfortable world is turned upside down with the news that Paradise’s friend and employer has died. Now Paradise has to take a hard look at his life and figure out what he really wants out of it. Meanwhile Mr. Martin Prince has come a long way to see what if anything Paradise can do to assist him in finding a long-last friend whom he hasn’t seen or heard from in over forty years.
