Rochester’s Geva Theatre announces 2015-16 season

Geva Theatre, Rochester’s flagship playhouse, has announced an ambitious season of new plays and classics on two stages for its 2014-15 season.

The season will feature 14 productions, many of which have been seen in Western New York but some of which may draw serious theatergoers away from Buffalo’s bustling scene for a day trip or two. There are also several productions of fine new plays that have played here recently, such as “An Illiad” and “Red,” which may entice Western New Yorkers who missed their local runs.

Here’s what’s on the schedule. Stars indicate shows that have not played in Buffalo recently:

Monty Python’s Spamalot,” Sept. 9 to Oct. 11

Red,” Oct. 20 to Nov. 15

*“The Lion,” Nov. 11 to Nov. 22

Miracle on South Division Street,” Jan. 12 to Feb. 7, 2016

An Iliad,” Feb. 4 to 21, 2016

To Kill a Mockingbird,” Feb. 16 to March 20, 2016

A Moon for the Misbegotten,” March 29 to April 24, 2016

*“Dancing Lessons,” April 14 to May 1, 2016

*“The May Queen,” May 3 to 29, 2016 (played at Chautauqua last summer)

*“Journey to the Son: A Celebration of Son House,” Late August

*“Festival of New Theatre,” October
