Hello, Goodbye

Hello, hello! I'm Amy Spaulding-Heuring, the new president of the Rep. You may know me as the spitting Mrs. Tottendale or as a proud director of a Young Rep production or as the Rep Ed Board Liaison. I am truly honored to be elected to the office, and I hope to be a positive force in the organization. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Brad Smith for his service and sacrifice to the Rep. As president, I hope to emulate Brad's thoughtfulness and steadiness. Lastly, I'm excited to take on this challenge and be a small part of the Rep's future.


And I'm the aforementioned Brad Smith, extending a warm welcome to Amy Spaulding-Heuring, our new board president.  When you get to know Amy, you will agree that her considerable talent is surpassed only by her passion.  She will do an excellent job in her new role, and she will have my full support.  As for me, I will remain as a board member and an ever-willing actor eager to return to our 10th Street stage. 


Before I go, I want to offer the grateful thanks of our board and staff alike to our departing artistic director, Steve Burnette.  The Rep is a better place for his tenure, and I, like many, will miss him greatly.  But as they say in our business, the show must go on!  And in that spirit, it gives me great pleasure to announce that long-time Rep performer and local business success Eric Hillenbrand has been named the Rep's interim artistic director.  Fresh from a long run as the owner of 20 North Gallery downtown, we are excited to have the benefit of Eric's expertise as we approach our 82nd season (!) and beyond. 


Finally, we offer our thanks to you, dear reader, whose support for our mission has sustained us amidst countless welcomes and farewells throughout our long history.  


See you at the Rep!

Forbidden Broadway's Greatest Hits!


A satirical musical revue, created and written by Gerard Alessandrini

Directed by Debra Ross Calabrese


This family-friendly Broadway Spooftacular opens the Rep's 81st season for two big weekends. No Broadway show or star is safe from this satirical mock-fest that pokes good-natured fun at those hit musicals from the Great White Way, and the legendary performers who starred in them, from such shows as Les Miserables, Chicago, Wicked, Mamma Mia, Rent, Spamalot, Annie and so much more. Created and written by Gerard Alessandrini, Forbidden Broadway is a guaranteed night of side-splitting laughs and a sure bet to sell out fast! And what better time to kick off the season than on Friday the 13th!
