In late January, the Rep will continue its goal of producing traditional musicals in non-traditional ways with one of Broadway classics, West Side Story, the beautiful, musical love story based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. How can a theater company that is based in a small black box theater do justice to this huge piece of musical theater history?
“That is the challenge and the inspiration for retelling this masterpiece,” says Neves. “This will surely be a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

One of Stephen Sondheim’s most intriguing pieces, Assassins, will launch the Rep’s second season on November 7th. This Tony-Award winning musical toys with space and time as it gathers characters from different stages of American history that have assassinated, or attempted to assassinate, Presidents of the United States. A fascinating study of history and musical styles mixed with levity, suspense and beautiful songs, the Rep’s production of Assassins will be directed by Artistic Director, Matt Neves.

We are so very excited to welcome you to Riverside Rep, which is basically good old fashioned musical theater produced with a modern professional twist. To put it more formally, it is our goal to celebrate the traditional themes of traditional musicals by breaking and bending the traditional ways of producing them. In doing so, we highlight what these musicals are really about. The Rep also produces modern musicals that have already challenged tradition, including groundbreaking original works. We celebrate new ways of doing things, and our main guiding principle is innovation.
We also believe in “buying local”. There is very little professional theater that is created in Riverside with local actors, technicians, directors, ushers, etc. that call this home and we provide quality professional opportunities for them. We also search the surrounding areas to find talented professional artists to collaborate in, and compliment, what we are doing. Riverside Rep is building a strong relationship with our community to become a firm beacon of the City of Arts and Innovation.
So welcome! Please join us at the Box at the Fox for every exciting production. Don’t miss what will be one chance in a lifetime after another.
David & Matt
