Moonlight & Magnolias Logo FINAL.jpg


1939 Hollywood is abuzz! Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchells’ novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, he sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.


 “…a Hollywood dream-factory farce… At once a hyperventilating slapstick comedy!”


…plenty of genuine wit in the dialogue, and the characters are drawn with such affection that one can’t help but cheer for them.” —NY Post. 

Cuckoo's Nest Logo FINAL.jpg


In this Broadway award winner, a charming rogue contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison.  He quickly takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb Indian talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. His destiny will shock and amaze you!

A perfect Halloween production intended for all who love thrills in the theater!

I Do I Do Logo FINAL.jpg


This remarkably intimate, thoroughly romantic piece, allows audiences into the bedroom of Agnes and Michael, as they try to maintain passion and devotion through the joys and pains, trials and tribulations, setbacks and celebrations of their fifty year marital odyssey. In that time we watch them go through their wedding night jitters, raise a family, negotiate mid-life crises, quarrel, separate, reconcile and grow old together, all lovingly to the strains of a tuneful, charming score which includes the standard "My Cup Runneth Over."

See How They Run Logo FINAL.jpg


So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib-tickling the plot in this London and Broadway hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race. Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress, a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who "touches alcohol for the first time in her life," four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings-on and the trumped up stories they tell him.


"Breathless show, fast tempo, plenty of laughs." - Variety


"A positive riot; in all my fifty years in the theatre I've never heard such laughter." - Bernard W. Suss

But a disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, privilege, and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.


"A lighthearted comedy with some heavier threads woven through for just the right amount of heft." - Broadway World

"A comedy planted in difficult, painful issues." - Chicago Tribune


“Bad fences make for a fun, formulaic comedy about bickering neighbors.” – Los Angeles Times
