"As far as I'm concerned, the Vineyard is home to me."
—John Kander

Past Productions

The Landing

Legendary theatre composer John Kander (CHICAGO, CABARET) and gifted playwright Greg Pierce’s (SLOWGIRL) first collaboration is a beautiful and haunting new musical, consisting of three thematically-connected tales of desire, love and loss. THE LANDING will feature Tony and Emmy Award-winner David Hyde Pierce (CURTAINS, VANYA AND SONIA…, “Frasier”), Julia Murney (THE WILD PARTY), Paul Anthony Stewart (HARBOR), and Frankie Seratch and is directed by Tony Award-winner Walter Bobbie (VENUS IN FUR, CHICAGO).

“ELEGANT AND POIGNANT!

Fans of Mr. Kander will certainly appreciate hearing this old master elicit increasingly complex feelings from what at first feel like basic melodies. Greg Pierce, has infused his wispy bedtime stories for grown-ups with an autumnal sense of regret for lives lost and paths not taken.The deft cast artfully matches its surroundings… gentle, color-coded stylishness in sophisticated storybook shades of gray, blue and red. David Hyde Pierce is quietly terrific throughout!”

– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“ENCHANTING! ‘THE LANDING’ KEEPS YOU ENTHRALLED.

It is a lovely, quirky new musical theater work with a sparkling cast! Julia Murney brims with cheerful loopiness and Hyde Pierce radiates a comical menace. ‘The Landing’ leaves you wanting more. Let’s hope Kander and Pierce have lots more like this ahead!”

– Jennifer Farrar, Associated Press

“HAUNTING, STARTLINGLY ORIGINAL AND DEEPLY MOVING!

Directed with a nimble hand and a full heart by Walter Bobbie. ‘The Landing’ transports us and lift our hearts. Young Frankie Seratch juggles Noah, Darius and Collin with impressive dexterity. Paul Anthony Stewart brings a robust sensitivity, then shows his deft lighter side.”

– Elysa Gardner, USA Today

“GO RIGHT AWAY!”

– Brandon Thorp, Village Voice

“THE AMERICAN MUSICAL HAS A BEGUILING, RISK-TAKING,
NEW WRITING TEAM AT THE VINEYARD THEATRE THESE DAYS!

Excellent actors! Kander’s music mixes his street-smart show-biz signature
with yearning romantic ballads.”

– Linda Winer, Newsday

“HEART-PIERCING.

Under Walter Bobbie’s stylized direction and mounted on John Lee Beatty’s abstract sets gorgeously lighted by Ken Billington, the pieces in this minimalist show look unmoored from what we earthlings call reality. The conceptual treatment of longing and loneliness is imaginative and the four-piece ensemble is excellent.

– Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“GOOD NEWS!

A brave departure for John Kander. Gorgeous, insightful and often funny.”

– Robert Holfer, The Wrap

“HAUNTING AND UNFORGETTABLE!

Director Walter Bobbie leads this four-person cast to committed and boundlessly energetic performances. The Landing is an excellent production. Fascinating and heart-rending!

– Zachary Stewart, Theatermania

“KANDER’S MUSIC HAS A LOVELY TINKLY SOUND WITH
KANDERESQUE SOPHISTICATION AND BOUNCE.

Well performed, especially by the versatile and always terrific David Hyde Pierce. Being the front and center boy is a tall order to fill and Frankie Seratch handles it with considerable charm and confidence. It’s a lot of fun and gives Julia Murney a chance to strut her vocal and performance talents. Paul Anthony Stewart adds to the fun in multiple roles.”

– Elyse Sommer, CurtainUp

“’THE LANDING’ IS AN ELEGANT TRIPTYCH OF SHOWS!

John Kander is in a metaphysical, not New York, frame of mind. The cast is superb!”
