December 9, 2014 – January 25, 2015


Nine-time Grammy Award Winner Sheryl Crow and Academy Award®-winning original screenwriter Barry Levinson makes a stunning debut as writers with the world premiere musical adaptation of the landmark movie Diner.

Christmas, Baltimore: 1959. A circle of childhood friends reunite for the upcoming wedding of one of them. Well, only if his fiancée passes a football trivia test. From the comfort of their all-night diner, the men, now in their early-twenties, confront the realities of adulthood: marriage, careers, money and the ever-mysterious opposite sex. But no matter where life takes them, they know they‘’re welcome back at the diner, the one place they’‘ll always belong.

Infused with swinging 1950s rock and roll sound, three-time Tony Award®-winning director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall joins Crow and Levinson to transform Diner’‘s groundbreaking evocation of burgeoning adulthood and friendship for the stage.

Praise for Diner the movie:
“Fresh……Energetic……Honest [and] entertaining.” –The New York Times
