MY THREE ANGELS

by Sam & Bella Spewack
directed by Steve Hill

A delightfully eccentric holiday comedy that trips along with a trio of unlikely saints who intervene in the lives of a family in dire straits. My Three Angels is a high-spirited, old-fashioned and wonderfully-crafted fable to take home for the holidays!

THERE GOES THE BRIDE

BY RAY COONEY & JOHN CHAPMAN
DIRECTED BY ANGELA MASON

Timothy Westerby is overworked, underpaid, stressed-out, and his daughter is getting married in what he thinks is an overly-lavish and expensive ceremony. Timothy is ripe for a nervous breakdown—and, on the morning of the wedding, he has one…

Cooney and Chapman are masters of the British farce: fiendishly clever comedies filled with surprises, combining good-natured bawdiness with inspired mayhem. There Goes the Bride shows them at the top of their game, creating a web of tall tales, mistaken identities, and outrageous twists that will have you howling.

THE WOMEN

BY CLARE BOOTHE LUCE
DIRECTED BY PETER BUDINGER & DC SCARPELLI

Welcome to New York High Society, where a woman’s place in the world is determined by her husband’s. Mary Haines doesn’t know that hers is stepping out with a gold-digging shopgirl until her friends step in to “help,” baring tooth and claw… 

Before there were Desperate Housewives… there were The Women. Best known for its classic film version starring Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell, this play combines high style and screwball comedy in an exceptionally witty, quotable script lampooning the social mores of the 1930s. The Women is smart, dangerous, delicious fun.

FARRAGUT NORTH

BY BEAU WILLIMON 

DIRECTED BY JAMES NELSON

Stephen Bellamy is an arrogant, political wunderkind who is not above getting his hands dirty in order to guarantee his candidate a victory in the Democratic primary. When a series of missteps throws him off course, he must come to terms with his own morality. 

From the creator of the taut, critically-acclaimed TV hit House of Cards, Farragut North is a whip-smart drama that takes us into the spin, intrigue, and backstabbing on the campaign trail. Whether you loathe government or live for punditry, it’s a gripping tale about the lust for power and the cost of achieving it.

THE REAL THING

BY TOM STOPPARD
DIRECTED BY ROBERT ESTES

 A glib playwright who calls himself a romantic but can’t seem to pen a sincere romance, Henry is surrounded by women who expose, explore, and revel in his flaws as the action shifts from his play to “real life,” and the question of which of his loves is “the real thing.” 

One of the theatrical giants of his generation, Tom Stoppard is a reigning genius of thought-provoking drama. His work has brought him an Oscar, four Tony Awards, and a knighthood. In The Real Thing, he brings his brilliant wordplay, wit, and insight to illuminate the nature — and the mystery — of love. 1984 TONY WINNER: BEST PLAY

THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD

BY RUPERT HOLMES
DIRECTED BY JOHN MAIO
MUSIC DIRECTED BY PAT KING

Telling the story of Charles Dickens’ unfinished murder mystery with song and dance, Drood makes the audience part of the action. When young Edwin Drood disappears from sleepy little Cloisterham, we’re faced with a rogue’s gallery of suspects, leaving YOU to decide who did the dirty deed, as well as who ends up happily ever after. 

Our season wraps up with a ribald, Victorian Music Hall extravaganza! Fresh from a smash Broadway revival, this clever piece is sheer delight, and the winner of multiple Tony Awards, including BEST MUSICAL!
