Love! Valour! Compassion! Promo ImageLove! Valour! Compassion! by Terrence McNally
September 19-28, 2013

In Duchess County, New York eight friends gather over the course of three summer weekends in a house belonging to aging Broadway choreographer Gregory and his younger partner Bobby, who is blind.

Venus in Fur by David Ives

December 12-21, 2013

Director Thomas is desperate to find a female lead for his new adaptation of the classic 19th century erotic novel, Venus in Furs, when at the last minute, a young actress named Vanda, barges in and requests an audition. What begins as a normal audition quickly turns into a seductive battle for power. Vanda’s masterful performance flips the script on Thomas’ expectations and turns the session into a tango for dominance between actress and director, woman and man.

Grey Gardens Promo ImageGrey Gardens, the musical
June 5-14, 2014

Equally hilarious and heartbreaking, Grey Gardens is a musical based on the cult classic documentary of the same name, which explores the true story of Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale - aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

From glamorous beginnings to a penniless, co-dependent existence, Grey Gardens paints an intimate and not unsympathetic portrait of two of the 20th century’s most notorious recluses.
