A delightful comedy of mistaken identities, fast-paced comedy, and a surprise ending. A satire on our U.S. political campaigns, meet Senator Harry Douglass who is running for President on a “morality” platform. Non-stop laughter from beginning to end, one meets two of Harry’s congressional colleagues, a muckraking reporter, Harry’s wife, his secretary, and the police, who all show up at Harry’s Washington, D.C., condo. “A madcap…hilarious and timely American farce. The sold out audience barely had time to catch a breath between laughs.”—Observer.

In this multi-prize winning love story, follow John and Mary as they grow up and grow old together from age 11 to 72. From their first kiss back when John’s hamster dies, the show continues through all their joys and losses, bad dresses and old girlfriends, and parental teachings about life. Very funny, yet a very touching play filled with life situation humor, the play is also filled with the awareness of how many everyday life happenings are really pretty funny. Highly entertaining but thought provoking, this show will make you laugh out loud, because you have been there, too.

As Tom’s attraction to Sara increases, he learns of the bizarre streak of bad luck that’s been haunting Sara for years. “A smart, funny, entertaining evening with a highly original heroine. The author’s originality is refreshing.”—Denver Westword. “Lucky Me” is a pleasing mixture of great sitcom and vintage Neil Simon with a dash of Aaron Sorkin.”—New Jersey Stage.

A side-splitting send-up of greed, love, revolution, in a time when water is worth its weight in gold! Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, corporate mismanagement, and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government –enforced ban on private toilets. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough and plans a revolution. With thought-provoking lyrics, its music includes songs such as “Run, Freedom, Run! ,” “Follow Your Heart,” “Tell Her I Love Her,” and “I See A River” and many more. “Despite its off-putting title, Urinetown—a hit on Broadway--makes for a sharp, funny musical”—Charles Spencer.
