While the five-show 2019 Subscription series doesn’t officially begin at Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre until April, there’s plenty for audiences to savor in the meantime, starting with two big events coming for the month of January.

On Sunday January 6th at 2:00pm, the theatre hosts a performance by the Zēlos Saxophone Quartet. Winner of the 2018 Frances Walton Competition, this sizzling young classical ensemble from San Jose, CA, is dedicated to performing a wide array of repertoire ranging from underrepresented contemporary works to transcriptions from the baroque, classical, and romantic eras. Their one-time-only pitstop in Catskill is guaranteed to warm a wintry upstate afternoon. These kids – Julian Salazar, Soprano Sax; Johnny Selmer, Alto Sax; Robin Lacey, Tenor Sax; and David Cortez, Baritone Sax – are on fire! Tickets are $15, $10 for 2019 BST Subscribers. For advance reservations, visit zelos.brownpapertickets.com or call 800-838-3006.

Then at 2:00pm on Sunday January 27th, come spend an afternoon with a theatrical legend and the quintessence of class! Consummate entertainer Charles Busch returns to Bridge Street, accompanied by long-time musical director Tom Judson, for a special sneak preview of his brand-new cabaret act just prior to its opening at Feinstein’s/54 Below in NYC. “Charles Busch: Native New Yorker” unfolds an outrageously comic yet poignant tale of Busch’s early years in the city, striving to find a place for himself in show business and culminating in the opening of his off-off-Broadway cult classic “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom”, and includes numbers by Rupert Holmes, Stephen Sondheim, and Jim Croce, among the best of Broadway, film, and pop. Get up-close-and-personal at this benefit for Bridge Street Theatre, then rub elbows with the performers at a reception immediately following the show. Tickets for this gala performance are $60, $50 for 2019 BST Season Subscribers. To make reservations (a must – this show will sell out FAST), visit buschny.brownpapertickets.com or call 800-838-3006

And 2019 Season Passes to Bridge Street Theatre’s five-play Subscription Series are now available! $100 gets you a seat for the world premiere of David Zellnik’s “The Letters”, Jen Silverman’s “The Moors”, the Joy Gregory/Gunnar Madsen musical “The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World”, the world premiere of Michelle Carter’s “Better”, and Frank D.
