December 3 – 20, 2020
Eva Peron is from the wrong side of the tracks.  But she ain’t stayin’ there long.  She’s on a one-way trajectory, and that one way is up.  If she has to kick a few people aside in the process, then so be it.  One of Webber’s best scores, this show contains “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina”, “A New Argentina”, “Another Suitcase, Another Hall” and “Buenos Aires”.

January 28 – February 14, 2021
In this ‘sequel’ to Talley’s Folly, the date is July 5th, the year is 1975, and Sally has returned home to deal with the family.  But can this family be dealt with?  And will Sally be able to cut loose from this old house once and for all, or will she find herself pulled back in by its charm, its danger, and its memories?  Burning Coal is proud to announce that Trish Hawkins, the original Sally Talley in the Broadway production of Talley’s Folly will reclaim the role, 30 years on, for which she is most known.

April 8 – 25, 2021
Irina, Masha and Olga live a charmed life.  Their country estate is filled regularly with admirers, their younger brother dotes upon them, and the servants are at their beck and call.  But something is changing, something unspoken.  They sense it.  And they know that if they are going to go to Moscow, they had better go now.
