The New London Barn Playhouse has had a unique season.

As a major renovation and expansion of the barn complex takes place, the company has relocated to a tent on the grounds of nearby Colby Sawyer College.

This week, the company wrapping up its rotating repertory of musical revue shows.

Aug. 18 and Aug. 20: “Anything Goes.” Outrageousness onboard an ocean liner with a cast of crazy characters caught up in toe-tapping tomfoolery! “It’s Delightful, it’s Delicious, it’s De-Lovely!” You’ll get a kick out of this abridged concert version of Cole Porter’s 1934 classic. On this boat, God knows, anything goes.

Aug. 19 and Aug. 22: “Cabaret, Chicago, and The Rink.” The songs of Kander & Ebb will be the fourth rep production in the line-up. Start spreading the news, “New York, New York” is coming to New London. From the brilliant songwriting team that brought us “Cabaret,” “Chicago” and “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” comes a tuneful tribute filled with lyrical gems and hilarious hits. The music of Kander and Ebb is sure to “Razzle Dazzle” you.

Aug. 21: “A Grand Night for Singing.” Featuring familiar melodies and lesser-known musical works from the iconic songwriting duo, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. This revue is a romantically refreshing reinterpretation of beloved golden age tunes, promising “Something Wonderful” for everyone.

The season will conclude with a two-week run of “Always, Patsy Cline” from Aug. 25 to Sept. 5. This show pays tribute to country music sensation, Patsy Cline. Based on the true story of Patsy’s relationship with her lifelong fan and friend, Louise Seger. You’ll hear honky-tonk hits like “I Fall to Pieces,” “Crazy,” “Walking After Midnight” and so much more.

All shows are held at 8 p.m. Youth tickets are $28, adults $40. For more information, visit
