Lend Me A Tenor

Written by Kud Ludwig

Winner of 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards, Lend Me A Tenor is set in September 1934. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world-famous singer Tito Merelli, known as Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as the star of the opera. Tito arrives late, and through a hilarious series of mishaps, he is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead - and in a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Merelli's costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds and lives up to his idol, but Merelli regains consciousness and gets into the identical costume, ready to perform. Now two opera singers are running around in the same costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.

SPOTLIGHT SERIES
A Doll's House - Part 2

Written by Lucas Hnath

In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?

“[A] smart, funny and utterly engrossing play…Hnath approaches what might seem like a hubristic project with the humility and avidity of an engaged Everyreader. A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 gives vibrant theatrical life to the conversations that many of us had after first reading or seeing its prototype…” —NY Times.

“…lucid and absorbing…Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting…the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility.” —Time Out NY.

“Hnath’s inspired writing, which endows each character with an arsenal of fastballs, curveballs and spitballs, keep[s] us disarmingly off-balance. He’s an uncommonly gifted parodist. For all its seriousness, A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 is suffused with a contagious bemusement.” —Deadline.com.

“[A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2] delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality and human rights…as much an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll’s House as a sequel, and it stands perfectly well on its own…With unfussy eloquence, [the play] asks how much, in a century-plus, life has changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong.” —Hollywood Reporter.

This production will be performed in the Lee Street Lab Alternative Performance Space.

The Imaginary Invalid

Written by Molière
Translated and adapted by James Magruder

In Molière’s outrageous satire of medicine and its practitioners, the wealthy Argan, to put it mildly, enjoys poor health. Laxatives, suppositories, bloodlettings, and second and third opinions from the leading quacks are the order of his day—and hell on his wily, back-talking servant Toinette. His daughter Angélique is in love with the impoverished Cléante, but Argan wants to marry her to Thomas Diafoirus, a medical dunce who can assure his father-in-law a lifetime of health care. Cléante disguises himself as a music teacher to gain access to his love, but Béline, Argan’s mercenary second wife, threatens to expose them. A disguised Toinette, sage advice from his brother Béralde, and a faked death scene finally teach Argan where to place his trust. The play ends with Argan’s ceremonious, pig–Latin induction into the medical profession.

Fruit Trilogy

Written by Eve Ensler

A play that speaks to these explosive times and charts the journey of women, from the disembodiment that comes from violence to the embodiment that comes from self-love. From the Tony Award–winning author of The Vagina Monologues, The Good Body, and In the Body of the World comes three short plays that give a voice to defiant, ordinary women: POMEGRANATE—two women for sale, another morning on the shelf; AVOCADO—a young woman on her chaotic, shocking journey toward freedom; and COCONUT—from the bliss of her bathroom, a woman connects with the one thing she has never fully owned…her body. Woven together with dark humor and heightened theatricality, FRUIT TRILOGY explores the humanity behind the headlines.

“Few people write about what Eve Ensler writes about, and none write the way she does…FRUIT TRILOGY is an honest, unflinching look at the way women’s bodies are commodified (bought and sold as though they’re produce), violated, and—with great difficulty, courage, and strength—eventually accepted by their owners…a significant piece that shouldn’t be ignored…” —TheaterMania.com.

“…Eve Ensler’s latest is a harrowing but unmissable theatre experience…It is the show’s climatic piece COCONUT, however, that will linger long in the memory…this is much more than provocative theatre. Instead, COCONUT challenges our ideas of bodily discovery, embracement and ownership, and it makes for powerful viewing…This is stark, brutal, emotive theatre…FRUIT TRILOGY is nothing less than compelling.” —TheStateoftheArts.com.

“Ensler is articulate, specific, ambitious, and brave…There’s no way to prepare for the arsenal of visions conjured and feelings invoked by Ensler’s brutal, lucid prose…The artist employs every aspect of herself to spellbinding effect.” —WomanAroundTown.com.

This production will be performed in the Lee Street Lab Alternative Performance Space.
