Doors slamming, on- and off-stage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this uproarious and classically comic play. Learn more.

When four aspiring novelists sign up for his private writing class, they have no idea that they are about to get the schooling of their lives. From Pulitzer finalist Theresa Rebeck, comes a provocative comedy with a vicious bite that uses unwavering wit to peel back the layers of a hopeful artist and reveal the scarred humanity beneath.
Writer, director, actor, and musician Tony Cronin's new play Spirit of the Dane is a hysterical look at the character Hamlet if he were around today and could talk directly to modern audiences about the burdens of worldwide fame, the traumas of his fictional life, and the thousands of lines Shakespeare wrote for other characters that Hamlet craves! His obsessions with the "Tomorrow and tomorrow," speech from the Scottish Play brings Lady MacBeth to the stage, and the two great characters commiserate on their lot as misunderstood - and all too often horribly portrayed - characters. If you liked Shakespeare in school, you'll love this play. If you hated Shakespeare in school, you'll love this play!

Weed Shop the Musical is a new work written by Becca Grumet & Madelyne Heyman. Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Alicia, a fresh-faced medical marijuana doctor, and Dave, a dispensary owner, as they search for 420-friendly love in a judgmental world. Meanwhile, Dave's ill-informed ex girlfriend Stephanie is prepared to do anything it takes to get revenge, while his coworker, Kyle, struggles to keep the dispensary afloat amidst the high-jinks her friend keeps getting himself into. Through tongue-in-cheek, funny, and heartfelt songs like "I Believe in Weed," "Stoners in Love," and "You Can Store Your Weed in my Heart," the show is surely a celebration of the stoner. However, "Weed Shop" isn't just for marijuana enthusiasts, it's for everyone - touching on universally comedic and heartwarming themes of love, self-expression, and identity.
