SEPT 14 – OCT 19, 2024

The setting: ancient Rome. A slave wishes to be free, and will do anything to accomplish that goal. And “anything” includes lying, cheating, stealing, pimping, dressing his extremely nervous friend as a virgin, and, perhaps worst of all…sprinkling horse sweat around town (yes, you read that right…). Sound crazy? You betcha!

Don’t miss this Broadway classic, winner of 10 Tony awards. “With its Larry Gelbart-Burt Shevelove book and Stephen Sondheim score, the musical about hanky-panky in ancient Rome remains the funniest ever written.” (WALL STREET JOURNAL)

POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive
Written by Selina Fillinger
Directed by Lynne Lupfer
NOV 2-23, 2024

One four-letter word is about to rock the White House. When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven brilliant and beleaguered women he relies upon most risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep the Commander-in-Chief out of trouble.

Perfect for fans of both sides of the aisle, this hysterical political comedy is “located somewhere on the satirical dial between ‘9 To 5’ and ‘Veep’. POTUS is a potty-mouthed sendup of life in the fastest lane, the one that ends at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.” (WASHINGTON POST).

In the aftermath of a life-shattering accident, a young husband and wife find themselves drifting perilously apart. This winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Price for Drama charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back up into the light of day. “The play doesn’t so much jerk tears as tap them, from a reservoir of feelings common to anyone who has experienced the landscape-shifting vacuum left by a death in the family.” (NY TIMES)

Written by Katherine DiSavino
Directed by Terri Caust
MAR 15 – APR 5, 2025

A young couple moves into their first apartment together, halfway across the country from their parents, so imagine their surprise when everyone shows up to help them!. Funny and touching, this one will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again, as it is “…superbly written and a wonderful, sentimental, true-to-life comedy about love and family, guaranteed to leave young and old with knowing smiles, because we’ve all had mothers of our own.” (INTELLIGENCER JOURNAL)

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Directed by Steve Bell
MAY 3 – JUNE 1, 2025

The brilliant composer Stephen Sondheim created a stunning tour-de-force when he turned Ingmar Bergman’s comedy-of-manners film, “Smiles of a Summer Night”, into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards (and winner of five, including Best Musical of 1973), this Sondheim classic not only features one of the most well-known songs in Broadway history (‘Send in the Clowns’) but is also “heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting.” (NY TIMES)
