Blithe Spirit, the much-loved classic comedy-farce by Noel Coward of hilarity and refinement, a perennial stage favorite, and outlandish romantic farce.
Disillusioned bombardier Yossarian has only one goal — to live forever. He tries everything to get out of flying dangerous missions, but unfortunately, there's always a catch: Every time Yossarian comes close to getting away from the war, the brass raises his mission quota, leaving him endlessly embroiled in military bureaucracy. Featuring a bizarre cast of characters, Joseph Heller's stage adaptation of his classic satirical novel asks what it means to be sane while surrounded by madness.
Featuring: Doug Greene Aetna Gallagher Chase Byrd Ashton Carter Sarah Knittel Merri Rashoyan

In the mid-1960s, a black queer feminist writer's life is changed when her girlfriend tells her some unexpected news. Fifty years later, the reverberations of that moment still echo in the lives of four individuals in the rapidly changing city of San Francisco. Christina Anderson's stunning and complex examination of the universal act of creation — creation of life, of family, of art — spans space and time to inspire a new generation of makers and lovers.
Stephen Sondheim's romantic music and lyrics, coupled with the artful book by Hugh Wheeler, sweeps us away to a weekend in the Swedish countryside. Actress Desiree Armfeldt, her family, her lovers, and their families learn when to "Send in the Clowns."
Brace yourself for comic chaos with Noises Off, the rip-roaring play within a play. The opening night performance of the farce Nothing On is just hours away, and as the actors stumble through their final dress rehearsal, things couldn't be going any worse. With lines being forgotten, love triangles unraveling, and sardines flying everywhere, it's complete pandemonium...and we haven't even reached intermission! Can the cast members pull their act together on the stage even if they can't behind the scenes?
In this lyrical, romantic tale, two teens fall in love too quickly and too deeply; the well-known story seems always fresh and new as the star-crossed lovers fly heedlessly toward tragedy.
The Sum of Us, written by David Stevens is about a widower and his gay son. The play is about wanting love but being afraid to look for it, about finding love and being afraid to go for it, and about having love and not being able to hold onto it. It's a play from the heart that tickles the funny bone in many delicious ways.
In one of the poorest cities in America — Reading, Pennsylvania — a group of down-and-out factory workers struggle to keep their present lives in balance, ignorant of the financial devastation looming in their near futures. Set in 2008, this new play's crux is knowing the fate of the characters long before it's even in their sights. Based on Lynn Nottage's extensive research and interviews with real residents of Reading, Sweat is a topical reflection of the present and poignant outcome of America's economic decline.
With poetry that brings the roiling sea to heel, The Tempest commands us to examine what happens when one ruler is exiled, his successor washed up on shore, and both must choose between conflict and reconciliation. Can old grievances lead to new hope or are we compelled to repeat our past sins? In the great comic fable of his artistic maturity, Shakespeare explores how the choices we make lead to unexpected consequences. Power becomes magic. Exile leads to revenge. Love paves a path to reconciliation, and poetry triumphs over all.
