Synopsis:

In this uproarious comedy, we are introduced to Andy and Norman, producers of a protest magazine. Sophie, an Olympic swimmer and all-American girl who just moved into the apartment next door, pays the young men a good-neighbor visit. From that moment on, Norman is hopelessly smitten. His love for Sophie becomes an obsession, and he literally drives her crazy by ignoring her rejection and constantly interfering in her life. Meanwhile, Andy is preoccupied with fending off creditors and charming the landlady to avoid being evicted for not paying the rent. The situation is eventually resolved through a series of hilarious happenings set forth with the masterly skill and inventiveness that are the hallmarks of Neil Simon.

Synopsis:

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

THE SANTALAND DIARIES – the wicked, sarcastic, and decidedly un-politically correct one-man show by beloved NPR humorist David Sedaris.

NEXT TO NORMAL

Book and Lyrics by Btain Yorkey, Music by Tom Kitt
Directed By Ian Galligan & Oliver Kochol

Show Dates:

MARCH 6TH THRU MARCH 21 ST, 2020
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2:00pm
Presented Cabaret Style with Table Seating!
Doors open 60 minutes prior to performance

Synopsis:

The Goodman’s seem like a perfect family. The only problem is that sometimes mother Diana is, well … a little too happy. Her husband Dan worries all the time. Her daughter Natalie seems awfully intent on getting that scholarship to Yale so she can leave home. And her son Gabe, well … that’s another story entirely. A musical about the devastating toll of mental illness on a contemporary suburban family might seem odd, but NEXT TO NORMAL turned out to be one of Broadway’s biggest hits. This modern rock musical won three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a suburban family struggling with the effects of one’ family member’s bipolar disorder. Each character’s journey is punctuated by powerful music scored by Tom Kitt (AMERICAN IDIOT). NEXT TO NORMAL is, in the words of The New York Times, “much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical.”

STEEL MAGNOLIAS

By Robert Harling
Directed by Melanie Del Sole & Pam Amodio

Show Dates:

MAY 8TH THRU MAY 23RD, 2020
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2pm
Presented Cabaret Style with Table Seating!
Doors open 60 minutes prior to performance

Synopsis:

A heart-warming portrait of friendship and love is the basis for this much-loved show. There isn’t a bond quite like the one between southern women in a beauty shop. In a small southern town, six women gather in Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes and beauty secrets, but they end up sharing so much more. Humor and heartbreak shine through this performance as the women experience some of the most significant days of their lives together. The true power of friendship shows through the women’s underlying strength, which makes these characters genuinely touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in the good times and bad.

Synopsis:

To celebrate Stephen Sondheim’s 90th birthday – and the 40th anniversary of the original Broadway production, we are proud to present this gothic musical tale of Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber who returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun! The winner of eight Tony Awards, this tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world!
