2013-2014 Season

Proof
by David Auburn
directed by Steven Marc Weiss
September 20, 21, 26, 27 & 28 - 7:30 pm
September 22 - 2:00 pm

David Auburn's Proof, which won both a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play, is fundamentally a mystery regarding the authorship of a particularly significant mathematical document. But this brilliant piece also works on a more probing psychological level, examining the link between genius and mental instability and the limited extent to which truth ultimately can be knowable.


Blithe Spirit
by Noel Coward
directed by Peter Craze (guest director from the London Drama Studio)
November 15, 16, 21, 22 & 23 - 7:30 p.m.
November 17 - 2:00 p.m.

One of Noel Coward’s most popular comedies, Blithe Spirit explores what might happen if a man's deceased wife returns from the grave to haunt his second marriage. Filled with erudite and witty banter, ghosts and apparitions ­ this delightful gem from 1941 once held the record for the longest running non­musical in London with 1997 performances.


City of Angels
book by Larry Gelbart
music by Cy Coleman
lyrics by David Zippel
staged by Dennis Barnett
musical direction by Marc Falk
choreography by Carol Maxwell Rezabek
March 21, 22, 27, 28 & 29 - 7:30 p.m.
March 23 - 2:00 p.m.

In 1989, this jazzy, fast-paced musical took Broadway by storm. Today it remains one of the most unique and exciting examples of the musical form. Written by Larry Gelbart (MASH), and with music by Cy Coleman (Sweet Charity), this journey into the film noir, gumshoe world of the 1940s promises bountiful energy and lots of fun!
