Tickets go on sale TODAY at 11am for their 30th Anniversary Season, COME TOGETHER, for the thrill of Live Theater.
May 11, 2021: Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts announced tickets are now on sale for their 30th anniversary summer season, Come Together, a showcase of live, indoor performances, outdoor musical concerts, and experiential art installation.
The season will launch with a staged production in the Theater of Mark St. Germain’s Becoming Dr. Ruth, starring Tovah Feldshuh; and will continue with an outdoor concert production of Camelot; and Wonder/Wall, an immersive visual arts experience.
Becoming Ruth chronicles the life of noted psychologist Dr. Ruth Westheimer, from her early years fleeing Nazi Germany, living as an orphan in Switzerland, to her service in the Israeli armed forces as sharpshooter, and her later life and career in New York. Tony and Emmy Award-nominee Tovah Feldshuh stars in this illuminating one-woman show, written by renowned playwright, Mark St. Germain. Becoming Dr. Ruth is a humorous and heartfelt portrait detailing Dr. Ruth’s remarkable journey against so many odds, to become a pioneer in the psychology of human sexuality and the world’s most famous sex therapist.
This production has a runtime of 90 minutes with no intermission and will be performed for a social-distanced audience indoors on Bay Street’s Mainstage in compliance with all New York State requirements for indoor performances.
Becoming Dr. Ruth is produced in association with North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, California, with David Ellenstein, Artistic Director, and Bill Kerlin, Managing Director.
Performances are June 4–June 27 Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays at 7 p.m., and matinee performances on Sundays and Wednesdays at 2 p.m.
Wonder/Wall is an exciting and new immersive video performance series bringing the work of four unique, cutting-edge video artists to Sag Harbor, to share work commissioned by Bay Street Theater. Each new work will have a one-week run during the month of July, and each will include a live performance element, which will be performed within the immersive video world surrounding the audience. Performances will be approximately 15 minutes in duration, and will take place within Bay Street Theater’s courtyard, which will be converted into a newly envisioned outdoor performance space created especially for these compelling presentations.
Conceived and curated by Artistic Associate Josh Wilder, Wonder/World runs July 6–July 31 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. Runtime: 15 minutes.
In the new envisioning of Camelot, the story of King Arthur, Guinevere, and Lancelot is told with intimacy, immediacy, and incandescent passion. This beloved musical explores one of the greatest romances of all time and paints a luminous picture of a fleeting moment when justice, peace, and righteousness reigned supreme. And while that moment must come to an end, we are asked to believe it could come again. Love, loss, humor, and regret pour forth from the acclaimed score, which includes classic songs such as I Loved You Once in Silence, I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight, If Ever I Would Leave You, and of course the title song, Camelot.
Camelot, with Book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and Music by Frederick Loewe, will be performed under the stars from August 5–August 29, Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinee at 5:30.
