"ART"
A stage reading in the Studio Theatre

Oct. 21, 22, 23
Oct. 28, 29, 30

How much would you pay for an all-white painting? Would it matter who the painter was? Would it be art? One of Marc’s best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It’s about five feet by four, all white with white diagonal lines.

 

To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn’t have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Ivan, though burdened by his own problems, allow himself to be pulled into this disagreement.

 

Eager to please, Ivan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. How will it all end?

"Musical Chairs"
A rollicking musical on the Mainstage

Nov. 4th, 5th, 6th
Nov. 11th, 12th, 13th

This delightful musical is about an audience watching a play!

 

Joe Preston has not had a hit in years and hopes his new play will revive his career, but he is at the mercy of an off-Broadway audience. 

 

His audience consists of two "gray-haired matinee ladies," a married couple who fights all the time, an anxious young man waiting for his date, an illiterate rock singer trying to impress his date with some culture, a Texas businessman and his culture-vulture wife, and three theatre critics- one of whom hates Preston's work and another who begged his editor not to assign him to this show because Sam, his lover who recently jilted him, is in the cast. Poor Joe Preston!

 

Marvelous music, hysterical comedy, and at least six showstoppers make this a surefire winner!

'ART'

October 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 28th, 29th, 30th 

How much would you pay for an all white painting? Would it matter who the painter was? Would it be art? One of Marc’s best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It’s about five feet by four, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn’t have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Ivan, though burdened by his own problems, allow himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Ivan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their friendships. At the breaking point, Serge hands Marc a felt tip pen and dares him: “Go on.” This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.

Visiting Mr Green logo (1).jpg UPDATED CORRECT SPELLING.jpg

VISITING MR. GREEN

January 13th - 29th

Mr. Green, an elderly, retired dry cleaner, wanders into New York traffic and is almost hit by a car driven by Ross Gardiner, a 29-year-old corporate executive. The young man is given community service helping the recent widower once a week for six months. What starts out as a comedy about two men who do not want to be in the same room together becomes a gripping and moving storyline as they get to know each other, come to care about each other, and open old wounds they’ve been hiding and nursing for years. Translated in 22 languages, with hundreds of productions in large and small venues, it has won numerous best play and best actor awards throughout the world.

“One of the best shows around. It is doubtful you are likely to encounter a play more enjoyable, more honestly funny and in the end, more moving than this delightful two-hander by Jeff Baron.” — Johannesburg Daily News

The Lifespan of a Fact Logo new.jpg

THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT

February 10th, 11th, 12th, 17th, 18th, 19th

Jim Fingal is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy–an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check D’Agata’s essay, they come head to head in a hilarious yet gripping battle over facts versus truth.

“…terrifically funny dialogue…once the writer and the fact-checker get into a lively debate on the ethics of factual truth vs. the beauty of literary dishonesty, it’s time to really sit up and listen…” – Variety

THE BOY FROM OZ

March 3rd - 26th

Peter Allen's performances at the height of his career in London, New York and Los Angeles were nothing less than spectacular, drawing rave reviews, cult crowds, and an ever-increasing network of friends which boasted Bette Midler, Richard Gere and Harry Connick Jr. With 'talent' stamped all over him and a jump-start, whirlwind spree with Judy Garland and marriage to Liza Minnelli, Allen had a one-way ticket to the Big Time. What could be further from his humble beginnings in Australia’s Outback than the legendary performances in his heyday that, as one critic wrote, 'would have scandalized any decade other than the 70s'?

If you don’t know Peter Allen’s music, you are wrong! You DO! ”Rio”, “Once Before I Go”, “Everything Old Is New Again”, “Not The Boy Next Door”, “When I Get My Name In Lights”, “Come Save Me” and of course “Between the Moon and New York City”! There are many more wonderful songs in this solid production that will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. It is a heart-warming story of a little boy with a dream who is able to see that one can make a dream come true, without the need of ruby slippers,” – Around the Town Chicago

EQUUS

April 14th, 15th, 16th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd

Dr. Martin Dysart, a psychiatrist, is confronted with Alan Strang, a boy who has blinded six horses in a violent fit of passion. This very passion is as foreign to Dysart as the act itself. To the boy’s parents, it is a hideous mystery; Alan has always adored horses. To Dysart, it is a psychological puzzle that leads both doctor and patient to a complex and disturbingly dramatic confrontation. This international success reached new acclaim in London and on Broadway when revived in 2008.

"The closest I have seen a contemporary play come to reanimating the spirit of mystery that makes the stage a place of breathless discovery..." - The New York Times

"As slick a vehicle as any theatre company could wish for.” –  The New York Times
