Cleveland Orchestra Chorus

We are not alone! Written and directed by Steven Spielberg and featuring a groundbreaking score by the legendary John Williams, Close Encounters of the Third Kind is one of the most treasured and influential science fiction films of all time. Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss), is an ordinary man, an electrical lineman who experiences a close encounter with an unidentified flying object. Increasingly obsessed with this unexplained phenomenon, Roy is drawn to a series of seemingly random strangers, each of whom has come in contact with similar UFOs, eventually making his way to Devil's Tower in Wyoming, where he finds the answers he seeks and where his life is forever changed.

SOMETHING ROTTEN! is "Broadway's big, fat hit!" (New York Post). Set in 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world's very first MUSICAL! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is "The Producers + Spamalot + The Book of Mormon. Squared!" (New York Magazine).
