The Night Before

by Matthew McGee

original music and arrangements by Michael Raabe

freeFall’s hit holiday show returns with an updated romp for 2022. There’s no place like home for the holidays. It’s snowing in sunny Florida when a group of friends and a surly house cat named Stephen Sondheim gather around the piano for a night of fun, music and games. Alternately hilarious and heartwarming, The Night Before is delightfully reminiscent of classic holiday TV specials, yet refreshingly modern in its depiction of one fabulous night with the family you choose.

The Mirror Has Two Faces

Movies with Matthew

hosted by Matthew McGee

Rose Morgan (Barbra Streisand), who still lives with her mother (Lauren Bacall), is a professor of Romantic Literature who desperately longs for passion in her life. Gregory Larkin (Jeff Bridges) a mathematics professor, has been burned by passionate relationships and longs for a sexless union based on friendship and respect. They’re two people with almost nothing in common, but Fate in the form of a personal ad and a meddling sister brings them together.

This screening features a pre-show discussion and hilarious live commentary during the film by Matthew and a special guest. The Mirror Has Two Faces is rated PG-13 and has a running time of two hours and six minutes.

OZ

music and lyrics by 
Michael Raabe
book by
Eric Davis

Preempted from our 19/20 season, this much-anticipated world-premiere musical by freeFall’s artistic director and music director finally takes its turn as we close our 22/23 season. This original musical explores the genius of L. Frank Baum and his complicated relationship with his most famous creation, the Land of Oz. This is the story of a dreamer at the dawn of a new age who reinvented the fairy tale in a distinctly American way, painting an idealized and magical vision of a world where witches might be good, and what you’re seeking is already inside you…
