some of our past productions
Feb 16 through March 11, 2018 Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his "creation" has a mind of her own. If the plot sounds familiar to you it's because the play was turned into a musical in later years called, you guessed it My Fair Lady.
April 6, 2018 through April 29, 2018 Driving Miss Daisy by Alfred Uhry
Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play. A warm-hearted, humorous and affecting study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, soft-spoken black man. A long-run Off-Broadway success and an Academy Award-winning film. "The play is sweet without being mawkish, ameliorative, without being sanctimonious." -NY Times. "...a perfectly poised and shaped miniature on the odd-couple theme." -NY Post. "Playwrights Horizons has a winner in this one...gives off a warm glow of humane affirmation." -Variety. "DRIVING MISS DAISY is a total delight." -NY Daily News.
June 1, 2018 through June 24, 2018 Bullshot Crummond
by Ron House, Diz White, John Neville-Andrews, Alan Shearman and Derek Cunningham
This parody of low-budget 30s detective movies typifies British heroism at its dumbest. Teutonic villain Otto Von Brunno and his evil mistress Lenya crash their plane in the English countryside and kidnap Professor Fenton, who has discovered a formula for making synthetic diamonds. Bullshot Crummond is called to the rescue by the professor's daughter Rosemary. The two meet at the Carlton Tea Rooms, where Crummond is convinced that their waiter is Otto in disguise
August 3 through August 26, 2018 TWO BY TWO
Our musicals are always a hit with audiences and critics alike don't miss this show.
*TO BE ANNOUNCED -Oct 5 - Oct 28 This has been a classic play the last few years and maybe again. I'm not sure yet. You'll be the first to know.
To be ANNOUNCED November 16, 2018 through December 16,2018
The reason I'm not yet announcing this production is that I have several plays in mind and I have decided to have the season ticket holders give me their suggestions. We will set up a voting box in the lobby and ask for your thoughts. I will list several plays that we have done before and several plays we have not done and ask for you to decide. It can't be a musical. This should be a fun experiment. We've been talking about doing this for years.
