The Importance of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde Main Stage: August 27 - August 30

Oscar Wilde's classic is a delight from the first cucumber sandwich on as Jack's double life catches up with him. The problems are resolved in an extremely charming and quite unexpected way as Jack and Algernon discover the importance of being earnest while answering to the name of Ernest.

The Understudy

by Theresa Rebeck Black Box: September 17 - October 4

An exploration of the existential vagaries (and comedy) of show business and life

The Divine Sister

by Charles Busch Black Box: September 24 - October 3

The Divine Sister is an outrageous comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns.

Hair

books and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, music by Galt MacDermot Main Stage: October 15 - 25

HAIR puts rock music and the culture that went with it on stage. The show acts as a bridge between generations and viewpoints. Phenomenal musical numbers include "Aquarius," "Good Morning Starshine," "I Believe in Love," "Hair," and "I Got Life."

Man and Superman

by George Bernard Shaw
Black Box: November 12-22

Arguably George Bernard Shaw’s most profound play, Man and Superman blends social satire with a fascinating philosophy.

Spunk and the Harlem Literati

An adaptation by Be Boyd, based on the play Spunk by Zora Neale Hurston Main Stage: January 21-31

A collaboration with the Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community and an official part of the ZORA! Festival 2016 program. Treasured local author Hurston (Their Eyes Were Watching God) weaves together song and story in a dramatic retelling of her award-winning short story of the same name.

Reeling

by Barry Kornhauser, music composed by Michael Koerner Black Box: February 18-28

In the spirit of the silent movie era, Reeling brings the timeless style and joy of vintage film to the stage. Without a single spoken word, Reeling tells the story of the Little Fellow, based on the film persona of silent movie great Buster Keaton.

She Loves Me

book by Joe Masteroff, music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, based on a play by Miklos Laszlo Main Stage: March 17 - 26

Set in a 1930's European perfumery, we meet shop clerks Amalia and Georg, who more often than not, don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Discover with Amalia and Georg the identity of their true loves and all the twists and turns along the way!
