2011-2012 Season

DROP DEAD!
By Billy Van Zandt and Jane Millmore

Directed by Gordon Ellis
September 14-October 6
(Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm, Sunday 9/30 at 3 pm)

It's 24 hours to opening night. The set has been cobbled together on a $35 budget, the cast is made up of stage & TV has-beens and never-were’s, and one of the actors has been mysteriously murdered. But as the saying goes, "the show must go on!" In the grand tradition of "Noises Off" and "Waiting For Guffman," this riotous comedy follows an off-the-wall theater company that doesn't understand the word "quit", but also seems a little fuzzy on the word "theater." And while the laughs pile up, so do the bodies, as the cast and crew march towards certain death, both in life and in the eyes of the critics. 


HELL CAB
By Will Kern


Directed by Russell Greene
November 16 – December 8
(Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sunday 11/25 at 3pm)

Deck the halls with a ride in HELL CAB! This long running serio-comic Christmas themed play is about the people we briefly meet by chance but whose touch lingers. Taking place a couple of days before Christmas and totally within a city taxicab, HELL CAB employs seven actors to play approximately 25 roles, including the dour cabbie. So, for a very different holiday experience ditch the “Sleigh Ride” and hail yourself some tickets to HELL CAB!  Fa la la la la…


January 11,12, 18, 19, 2012 - all shows at 8pm
New Works Winter Festival XII


AMERICAN BUFFALO
By David Mamet


Directed by Nancy Curran Willis
March 1 – March 23
(Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm, Sunday 3/17 at 3 pm)

This drama of shifting loyalty, unspoken jealousy, and lurking desperation is considered an American Classic.  The setting is a dusty pawn shop, crammed full of bits and pieces of questionable value, where three crooks conspire to steal a rare and valuable coin.  The heist tests the hustlers' dependency on each other as well as their status in their imagined criminal world; where enterprise is equivalent to scam.  Prepare for a banter-fueled dark comedy and a heartbreaking portrait of life's outcasts, where friendship and loyalty is no match for greed and selfishness.


PARALLEL LIVES: The Kathy and Mo Show
By Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy


Directed by Dave Sheppard
May 3 – May 25
(Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm, Sunday 5/19 at 3 pm)

A cult classic comedy from the 80`s, the play opens with two Supreme Beings planning the beginning of the world, and goes off like a rocket from there. With boundless energy and humor, the actresses whisk the audience through their outrageous universe - playing both men and women, children and adults - while struggling through the common rituals of modern life: dating, mating, coping with guilt, bar life, street life and of course - sex. This non-stop ride of laughter skewers stereotypes wherever it finds them.
