Joneses.png

January 16 - 31

Based on an idea they first played around with in 1976, started working on in earnest in 1985, Loren Comitor and Karolus Smejda's first musical, Gettin' Down With the Joneses, focuses on a world that's always ripe for satirical exploration, especially given downsizing, hostile takeovers, and a competitive global economy: upper-middle-class corporate America.

The Good Doctor.jpg

September 12 - 27

This Broadway hit is a composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch a fiesty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment and leave the boy more perplexed than ever. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious and the fun unending.

Moon Over Buffalo.jpg

February 20 - March 7

Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong!
