New Phoenix Theatre’s next show of the season is Quartet and will be on the Fort Myers stage Jan. 6 – 23.
Quartet is a beautiful and funny play, that is also very touching. The story takes place in a home for retired musicians. It focuses on three old friends: opera singers. Their peace is destroyed with the arrival of Jean, an old friend of theirs who worked successfully with them on a Quartet many years ago.
Directed by Ken Johnson, Quartet stars Carolyn England, Trace Meier, Ken Bryant and Brenda Kensler. Performances are Thursday – Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
Remaining shows in the season:

Pageant the musical Feb. 10 – 27
Like no beauty pageant you’ve ever seen before, six contestants vying for the title of Miss Glamouresse compete in swimsuit, talent, gown, and spokesmodel categories. Judges selected from the audience get to pick the winner – so no performance is ever the same…and the suspense is real. Directed by Jason Drew.

The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife March 10 – 27
Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side Doctor’s wife, is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at the MOMA and evenings at BAM. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, she’s shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating and mysterious childhood friend.

Head Over Heels April 7 – 28
Featuring the music of the Go Gos, Head Over Heels is the story of what happens when the royal court of Arcadia is threatened by the mystical Oracle of Delphi with the loss of its “Beat,” the divine power that ensures the kingdom’s prosperity. Through a plot containing usurped kingship, unlikely lovers, and gender-fluid disguises, Head Over Heels preaches unconditional love and acceptance of yourself and everyone you know.
New Phoenix Theatre is located at 13211 McGregor Blvd., units 1 and 2, Fort Myers.
