Magenta Theater’s 16th season launches with pure British humor with the production of “Jeeves Intervenes” in February. Rapidly following on Jeeves’ coattails is the pop musical “Emma” in April. In June, audiences will be caught up in the whirlwind farce “Boeing, Boeing.” Think there’s time for a rest? Nope! “Baskerville,” starring Sherlock and Watson, comes howling onto the stage in September, keeping pulses racing and minds boggled. To round out the season next November, Magenta has a ten-year revival of “Once Upon a Palace Purple.” It’s non-stop action on the Magenta stage in 2018. And yet the price of season tickets has only risen by a couple of bucks! Season tickets go on sale Wednesday, Nov. 1. Here are the details:
• Full Season Experience: $98 (priority seating for all five shows in the season)
• Season Sampler Experience: $58 (priority seating for three shows in the season—you select the shows)
In addition, the company will host eight improv shows with MIT (Magenta Improv Theater) and four Black Chair Projects (staged readings). These aren’t included in the season passes, but are reasonably priced and well worth attending.
