Sweet Charity (performances 9/6/19-9/29/19)
Book by Neil Simon
Music by Cy Coleman
Lyrics by Dorothy Fields

Inspired by Federico Fellini's Nights of Cabiria, SWEET CHARITY explores the turbulent love life of Charity Hope Valentine, a hopelessly romantic but comically unfortunate dance hall hostess in New York City. With a tuneful, groovy, mid-1960s score by Cy Coleman, sparkling lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and a hilarious book by Neil Simon, SWEET CHARITY captures all the energy, humor, and heartbreak of Life in the Big City for an unfortunate but irrepressible optimist.

SWEET CHARITY is presented by arrangement with tams-witmark www.tamswitmark.com



One Slight Hitch (performances 11/1/19-11/24/19)
by Lewis Black

It's Courtney's wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like any good farce, the doorbell rings. And all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect.

One Slight Hitch is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. 



Peter and the Starcatcher (performances 1/10/20-2/2/20
by Rick Elice
Music by Wayne Barker

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain's cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk's precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates - led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own - the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com



A Piece of my Heart (performances 3/6/20-3/29/20)
by Shirley Lauro

This is a powerful, true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays each young woman before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn nation and ends as each leaves a personal token at the memorial wall in Washington. A Piece of My Heart premiered in New York at Manhattan Theatre Club.

“A Piece of My Heart” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.



A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder (performance 5/15/20-6/7/20)
Book and Lyrics by Robert L. Freedman
Music by Steven Lutvak

When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out he's eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn't the only thing on Monty's mind...

A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
