Feb. 1: Cinderella at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor

It’s the Tony Award®- winning Broadway musical that’s delighting audiences with its contemporary take on the classic tale.

Feb. 1-18: Escanaba in da Moonlight at the Penobscot Theatre in Bangor

Check out the Maine premiere of this play by Jeff Daniels. When the Soady clan gathers at the family’s camp for the opening day of deer season, 35-year-old Reuben bears the dubious distinction of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to have bagged a buck. In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, Reuben goes to extraordinary lengths to remove himself from the family record book. 

Feb. 25: Masterworks IV: Winter Dreams at the Collins Center in Orono

Acclaimed pianist Orli Shaham joins the BSO for Bartok’s thrilling Piano Concerto No. 3 and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 1, “Winter Dreams”, paints the perfect picture for Maine in February. Smetana’s sparkling Overture to The Bartered Bride opens the program.
