Light Up the Sky

By Moss Hart

Directed by Mark Putnam

Light Up the Sky takes place in the hotel room of Broadway actress Miss Irene Livingston, prior to the opening of a new play in an out-of-town tryout. Over the course of the evening - and thus, over the course of the play - we follow a truck-driver-turned-playwright watching his first play being produced in Boston. This backstage comedy features the grandly temperamental leading lady; her sarcastic, gin-rummy-playing mother; the flamboyant director; the lowbrow producer; and his ice-skating, wisecracking wife. The opening night seems to go awry and the producer, cast, etc., believe it is a flop and turn against one another, against the producer and especially against their unlikely author. When it turns out that the reviews are favorable, however, the tables turn, and we see how easily show business people can go from friends to enemies to friends, once more.

Reunion

By Gregory S. Moss

Directed by Meghan Daaboul

Twenty-five years ago, in a small city in Massachusetts, three teenage boys ran wild. Best friends Mitch, Peter and Max drank, played their music loud and made trouble while trying to survive high school, their families and the demands of the conservative working-class community in which they grew up. Max was the leader, the boldest and most ruthless; Mitch was Max’s right-hand; and Peter—Peter was the third wheel and the butt of their jokes. After a harrowing graduation night, the threesome grew up and grew apart. But tonight—the night of their high-school reunion, exactly 25 years since graduation—Mitch is getting the gang back together to celebrate and recreate the wildness of their teenage years. Time has changed them—Peter is doughy and domesticated, still eager for his friends’ acceptance; Mitchell is an eccentric, loquacious loner, hungry for reconnection; and Max, now a reformed alcoholic, recently divorced, is wounded and secretive, seeking forgiveness from his friends for past bad behavior and trying to distance himself from the kid he once was. Max struggles to make an early exit, but the familiar comfort of old friends and Mitch’s persuasion win him over, opening the door to a night of exhilarating intoxication, celebration, risky behavior and a reconnection with the reckless freedom of youth. But as morning encroaches, secrets are revealed, and all three men find that the past can be a dangerous place to return to, and their memories of youth and bonding are troubled and complicated by adulthood, leading ultimately to a long overdue atonement. A darkly comic drama, Reunion explores the risks and pleasures of revisiting the past, examines the precariousness of male identity and reveals the fraught and dangerous aspects of male bonding.

Directed by Don Cleland

Disney's Aladdin brings the famous movie to life, on stage. In Agrabah, City of Enchantment, every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail! Aladdin, a kind but wily, street urchin, falls in love with beautiful Princess Jasmine, who he knows is waaaaay out of his league. It just so happens, however, that the Sultan has declared Princess Jasmine must choose a husband within the next day. After she turns down the offers from various wealthy suitors, Aladdin -- with the help of a fast-talking, magical Genie -- introduces himself as wealthy suitor Prince Ali Ababua. Meanwhile, evil royal advisor Jafar also has his sights set on the kingdom, and tries to convince the Sultan to force Jasmine to wed him. Will love conquer all? Perhaps - if love has a little help from a Genie.

Little Women The Broadway Musical

By Alan Knee based on the book by Louisa May Alcott 

Directed by Chris Byrne

Louisa May Alcott’s beloved story of the adventures of the four March sisters is brought to vivid musical life in Little Women. The Civil War is in full swing, and the March sisters -- Meg, the oldest, a romantic, the spirited and tomboyish Jo, sweet and loving Beth, and irascible, playful Amy -- live in Concord, Massachusetts with their Marmee while their father is on the battlefield. Filled with adventure (both lived and imagined), heartbreak, and a deep sense of hope, the struggle of these “Little Women” to find their own voices mirrors the growing pains of a young America. With buoyant, joyful melodies, memorable characters, and a big-hearted message, Little Women reminds us that “sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true.”

Don't Dress for Dinner

By Marc Camoletti

Directed by Dawn Sellers

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It's foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well.... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with everyone else's. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

Noises Off

By Michael Frayn

Directed by Doug Sellers

Michael Frayn's Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and - of course - flying sardines!
