LEND ME A TENOR A Comedy by Ken Ludwig
Winner of 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards
2010 Tony Award Nominee, Best Revival of a Play
This over the top comedy, set in September 1934, finds Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, primed to welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, mistaken identities, and of course a double dose of tranquilizers, everyone is in for an evening they won't forget. A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.

"Non stop laughter." - Variety "Uproarious! Hysterical!" - USA Today "A rib tickling comedy." - The New York Post "Screamingly funny!" - CBS Radio "An accelerating snowball of laughter... all the door-slamming hilarity of a Marx Brothers' classic." - Jim Helsinger, PA Shakespeare Festival
 
DINNER WITH FRIENDS A play by Donald Margulies
Winner of the 2000 Pulitzer Prize
This award winning play takes us into the complexity of relationships. Two married couples have been best friends for years. In their Connecticut home, Karen and Gabe, international food writers, are giving a dinner for Beth and Tom, which he doesn't attend. Karen and Gabe soon learn not everything is as perfect as they once believed. This story takes a keen look at modern marriage, offering laughter at its common foibles and insight into its complex intricacies.

"...Margulies writes about relationships with such intelligence and spiky humor that his comedy-drama...becomes something quite wonderful." - Time Magazine. "...wry and keenly observed and bathed in the unspoken sorrow that can sneak up on you in middle age..." - NY Times. "...full of life, warmth, laughs and wisdom..." -NY Daily News. "A breezy comedy of modern manners that turns poignant and deeply affecting by its end. Margulies touches chords that resonate with a deep affecting humanity." - San Francisco Examiner.
 
DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS A Musical Comedy Book by Jeffery Lane
Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek
Nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards
Based on the popular 1988 MGM film, this musical takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty). Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Feddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. Including the songs "Great Big Stuff," "All about Ruprect," and "Here I am."

The Sunday Times critic called it "a scandalous delight". "It's smart. It's funny. It's heaven." - Joanna Gleason, actress. "This is hilariously funny, but in the smartest most intelligent, unexpected way." - SaraGettelfinger, actress.
