Florida Repertory Theatre’s 26th season begins with Beguiled Again, a salute to the music of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart.
The production runs in the ArtStage Studio Theatre Sept. 22 through Oct. 29.
Beguiled Again takes audiences on a dazzling journey through the songbook of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. The production features over fifty of the duo’s most beloved hits including “Bewitched,” “The Lady is a Tramp,” “Where or When,” “My Funny Valentine,” and more. The production was conceived by J. Barry Lewis, Lynnette Barkley and Craig D. Ames. Music is by Richard Rogers, with lyrics by Lorenz Hart and musical arrangements by Craig D. Ames.
“Beguiled Again is a glamorous, romantic, and nostalgic salute to one of America’s most beloved songwriting duos,” said producing artistic director Greg Longenhagen. “Our production offers audiences a unique musical revue experience beautifully staged in our intimate ArtStage Studio and performed by a multi-talented cast and musicians.”
The ensemble cast features returning artists, Kim Morgan Dean (Ripcord) and Carolann M. Sanita (Night and Day), plus New York-based actors Jonathan Brugioni, Halley Daigle-Saez, Matt Gibson, and Logan Marks all making their Florida Rep debuts. The troupe will be accompanied by Andrew Smithson on piano and Miguel Azcuy on drums.

Director and choreographer Michael Marotta (An Inspector Calls) will be joined by an expert creative team including musical director Andrew Smithson (A Grand Night for Singing), set designer Aaron Jackson (Florida Rep debut), costume designer Brad Musgrove (Steel Magnolias), lighting designer and ensemble member Todd O. Wren (The Importance of Being Earnest), sound designer Katie Lowe (Ring of Fire) and ensemble stage manager Janine Wochna (Lobby Hero).
