    Village Theater’s 2014-15 season includes “Cabaret” from July 10 to Aug. 2, 2015

Among the region’s large theater organizations recently announcing 2014-15 season schedules are Village Theatre, Seattle Theatre Group at the Paramount and the 5th Avenue Theatre.
Village Theatre
Based in Issaquah, Village Theatre also produces shows at its second home, the Everett Performing Arts Center. Next up from Village in Everett is the whimsical new musical “The Tutor.” The show, about an aspiring young novelist, runs May 2 to 25. “Funny Girl,” the story of Fanny Brice, is Village’s summer show, running from July 11 through Aug. 3.
The coming season includes the contemporary Broadway hit and Pulitzer Prize nominee “In the Heights,” Oct. 31 to Nov. 23; the Disney family favorite “Mary Poppins,” Jan. 9 to Feb. 8; a comedy based on the Jules Verne book “Around the World in 80 Days,” March 6 to 29, 2015; a brand new musical comedy thriller, “No Way to Treat a Lady,” May 1 to 24, 2015; and the Bob Fosse classic “Cabaret” from July 10 to Aug. 2, 2015. It was announced this week that Brian Yorkey plans to direct “Cabaret.”
Yorkey, a favorite son of Village Theatre, is best known for writing the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Next to Normal.” Yorkey directs the current production of Village’s “The Foreigner.” During the past decade Yorkey has directed 12 shows for Village Theatre. One of the country’s busiest theater professionals, Yorkey is working on the new Broadway musical “If/Then,” featuring Broadway star Idina Menzel, who has a recurring role on TV’s “Glee,” is the voice of Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen,” and was in the original Broadway casts of “Wicked” and “Rent.”
