Directed by Fernando Ochoa

When tightly wound Aaron is set up with cool girl Casey, a quick drink turns into a hilarious dinner served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, a slew of bad boy and uptown girl exes, and some seriously saucy chemistry. Can this mis-matched pair turn what could be a dining disaster into something special before the check arrives, or end up at another table for one?

A Play by Neil Simon
Directed by G. A. Klein

Based on the film of the same name, Xanadu centers on a Greek muse who is sent to Earth to inspire Californians during the 1980s. While on earth, she meets and falls in love with an artist and helps him realize his dreams. A silly and satisfying nod to the Reagan decade, featuring both classic 80s tunes, (Suddenly, Magic, Evil Woman) and original songs written for the show.

This charming new musical invites you to a wedding day you will never forget, where anything that can go wrong does and where love pops up in mysterious places. The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. When the bride's ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding unravels faster than you can whistle "Oh Promise Me!"

Deathtrap is a thriller in two-acts, with dark comic undertones.

Once the toast of Broadway, Sidney Bruhl is a playwright with a bad case of writer's block. Clifford Bradshaw, a student attending Sidney's writing seminars, shares the draft of DEATHTRAP, a play he has written. Sidney is sure it will be a smash and gets a killer idea! Murder Clifford and pass the play off as his own.

Twists and turns abound in this clever and funny Broadway hit, a 1978 Tony nominee for Best Play.
