Altar Boyz, winner of an Outer Critics Circle Award, comes to the Cape Playhouse after a five-year run off-Broadway. The musical tells the wholly — make that holy — inspiring story of five small-town boys (Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham) trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious pop act, including lyrics like "Girl, you make me wanna wait" and "Jesus called me on my cell phone," worked wonders on the Ohio bingo-hall-and-pancake-breakfast circuit. But when fate brings them to New York, will the Boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple? With angelic voices, sinfully spectacular dancing, and a touching story, Altar Boyz is destined to rock the masses!
Restaurant manager and shoe connoisseur Haley Walker is finally ready to reenter the dating world. From the privacy of her bedroom, she relates a series of hilarious tales while preparing for — and recovering from — one dreadful date after another. Theresa Rebeck's sweet and sharp comedy Bad Dates is one of the most popular shows in Huntington history.
The Capitol Steps began more than 30 years ago as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together, the performers have worked in a total of 18 Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 35 albums, including their latest, Orange Is the New Barack. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. There's never a shortage of material.
When Devon visits Simone for an end-of-summer sibs fest on Martha's Vineyard, she finds her little sister changed beyond recognition. As personal assistant to Michaela Kell, a wealthy and demanding trophy wife, Simone enjoys a lavish beachfront lifestyle that these girls never could have imagined growing up in blue-collar Buffalo — but is all this luxury free of cost? Worlds collide and sisters square off in this keenly observed comedy about ambition, regret, and the choices that shape who we become.
1. Ice cream. 2. Water fights. 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV. These are just a few items on a list of things worth living for compiled by a young girl trying to ease her mother's depression at the start of Every Brilliant Thing. Through adulthood, as the list grows, she learns the deep significance it holds in her own life. It stays with her as she goes to college, falls in love, and builds a home. A tribute to the irrepressible resilience inside all of us and the capacity to find delight in the everyday, Every Brilliant Thing is a charming new play that enlists members of the audience to help tell its story.
Benedick is never getting married. Not ever. And Beatrice can't imagine loving a man she can't tolerate! They might just be the perfect couple. While the villain Don Jon sows seeds of rumor and discord, the success of two noble marriages hinges on the hilarious efforts of local constables. Shakespeare's most frequently performed comedy is a joyous romp that sparkles with wit and romance.
The Capitol Steps have been a national institution for over 35 years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy and satire to audiences coast to coast. Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. The troupe started in 1981. Since then, they have appeared on the Today Show, Nightline, CBS Evening News, and for many years in specials for NPR. In the Capitol Steps' new show, new faces from the Trump White House and Mar-a-Lago join old faces from the Obama years to bring their musical political satire to greater Boston.
From award-winning humorist, playwright, and National Public Radio contributor David Sedaris, a dose of unconventional holiday humor. The author's real-life experiences as a Macy's Christmas elf named Crumpet (Steve Kidd) include a humiliating job interview, elf indoctrination, run-ins with miscast Santas, pushy parents, and a host of oddball characters. Merrily subversive and fall-on-your-knees funny!

Based on the Academy Award-winning film, Shakespeare in Love tells the story of young Will Shakespeare, suffering from a case of writer's block as the deadline fast approaches to deliver his new play, Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. Enter Viola, a headstrong noblewoman and admirer of Will's, who disguises herself as a boy so that she can skirt the law and appear (as a girl) in his play. But when the playwright and his muse fall in love, the plot undergoes some surprising rewrites. Mistaken identities, courtly intrigue, and backstage bickering are all part of the fun in this romantic comedy of errors. Shakespeare in Love reminds audiences that while all the world's a stage, love is unrehearsed.
Set in Louisiana in the 1980s, Robert Harling's Steel Magnolias is equally hilarious and heartwarming. At Truvy's beauty shop, six southern ladies gather each week to chat and support each other through thick and thin. But those bonds are about to be tested when M'Lynn and her daughter Shelby face a life-changing crisis. Harling's play touches on love, loss, and enduring friendship.
Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after 22 years in the suburbs. Greg finds Sylvia, a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home. She promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to comic and touching effect. This play by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner A.R. Gurney looks into the complexities of love and commitment, asking what it truly means to be devoted to your partner…and how you choose between the love of your life and man's best friend.
Devious Tartuffe charms his way into Orgon's household and schemes to marry his daughter, seduce his wife, and run off with the family's fortune.

In one of the world's great plays, Molière spins religious piety and hypocrisy into high comedy, making for a hilarious and biting satire.
