A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
By Stephen Sondheim, Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart
 
November, 2010

 

        A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

"Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, this hilarious Tony Award winning musical tells the story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The plot displays all the classic elements of farce, including outrageous puns, slamming doors, mistaken identities and satirical comments on social class. It’s funny alright and filled with great songs, dance numbers and wild and crazy comedy action."

Girl in the Goldfish Bowl
By Morris Panych
 
January, 2011

 

       
"As this quirky comedy opens, Iris, a precocious girl of ten, is certain that the recent death of her goldfish was announced by the air-raid sirens during the day’s school drill. Could the spirit of her recently departed pet be re-incarnated in the form of a lost, amnesiac drifter who suddenly appears without warning? Iris’s parents, trapped in the nostalgic desires of their own lost youth, are oblivious to their daughter’s child’s eye view of life."

The Tempest
By William Shakespeare
 
March, 2011

 

       
"In The Tempest, Shakespeare’s final work of genius, Prospero, a brooding Renaissance Magus, is marooned on a remote island with his young daughter Miranda. Banished by his usurping brother from his rightful position as the Duke of Milan, he awaits the right planetary conjunction to work his magnum opus and gain his revenge. Aided by his mercurial servant Ariel but stymied by the brutish monster Caliban, Prospero is a man with a mission. Combining romance, comedy and spectacle, The Tempest is truly ” the stuff that dreams are made on."
