A Thousand Clowns
By Herb Gardner
 
June 26-30
July 3-7

This benchmark of Broadway comedy produced one of the theatre's most beloved roles: a bachelor uncle who is endeavoring to rear his precocious nephew. He has tired of writing cheap comedy for a children's television program and finds himself unemployed with some free time to just hang out in his apartment or saunter through the streets of New York and do everything he has always wanted to do.

When social services comes to insure that the nephew is receiving a proper upbringing, he finds himself solving their problems
Eventually, he must go back to work or lose his nephew. In any case, he remains one of the funniest nonconformist of the stage.
 
“Filled with laughter and warmth and sweetness and inspired daffiness" ~ N.Y. Daily News
"Merely the best comedy of the season. A fine and funny evening" ~ N.Y. Journal American
"An extraordinarily funny play with some brilliantly offbeat lines" ~ N.Y. Post
 
 
A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum
A Musical Comedy
By Stephen Sonheim
and Larry Gelbart
 
July 11-14
July 16-21

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.

This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine – "something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"
 
"This brazenly retro Broadway musical, inspired by Plautus, is as timeless as comedy itself" ~ Vincent Canby - The New York Times
"The most urbane and literate musical comedy text ever conceived" ~ John Simon - New York Magazine
