Imagine a divided Congress. Imagine lawmakers more interested in lining their own pockets than serving the national interest. Imagine an idealistic young Congressman determined to expose the corruption by introducing a bill so stuffed with pork it is sure to oink itself to death. Will his fight cost him the support of his peers, his constituents, and the woman he loves — who just happens to be the daughter of the Appropriations Committee chairman? A comic masterpiece that could have been pulled straight from today's headlines, this marvelous political satire is as relevant today as when it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1933. Colorful characters, sharp wit and glorious wisecracks reminiscent of 1930s screwball comedies add to the fun and fury.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where this month's paycheck barely covers last month's bills, bingo is a night on the town, and sharp-tongued single-mom Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Faced with the reality that her neighborhood is providing her with the same opportunities it always has — none — Margie concocts a plan to solve all her financial problems — and it might just be crazy enough to work. This humor-filled, Tony-nominated hit from Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire takes a look at the "haves" and the "have-nots" as it questions the American dream and how to achieve it — hard work, skill, or luck?
From the comic genius who brought us Venus In Fur comes a new adaptation of one of world theatre's funniest plays. The Liar takes us to Paris in 1643 and our hero is everything a hero should be: charming, charismatic, handsome, passionate. His only flaw? He cannot tell the truth. Paired with a manservant who cannot tell a lie, this comic dynamic duo take on all that 17th century France can throw at them. Wordplay, swordplay, mistaken identity, romance, wit, and a few big whoppers combine to make this romp an unforgettable night at the theatre.
With his eye firmly fixed on the bottom line, wealthy hat merchant Horace Vendergelder can't see the value of love, even as he searches for a wife. But he gets more than he bargains for when he employs the services of matchmaker Mrs. Dolly Levi. Mistaken identities, near misses and a wild romp through late 19th Century New York City flow through this madcap comic adventure like vintage champagne. The uproarious comedy that inspired the Broadway musical, Hello, Dolly!, Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker proves that sometimes money can buy happiness.
An award-winning play about a corporate raider who decides to acquire a small family business simply to liquidate it. A play rich in comedy, suspense and sexual intrigue, <>bOther People's Money is a "timely" study of Corporate America...where "sharks" are often considered "heroes."
If this play were a personal ad, it might read: Rich American women seeking financially strapped British men with titles. A hot topic (i.e. Downton Abbey) on both sides of the pond when this delightfully cheeky play was written in 1917, the exchange of a "milady" for a large financial sum was all the rage. Bessie Saunders, 22, pretty and the heiress to several million dollars, has come from America to stay with her sister Pearl, aka Lady Grayston. Pearl's friends include a cougar Duchess, a widowed Princess and two fellows both besotted with Bessie. But once Bessie witnesses the scandalous habits of this less-than-virtuous society, the emotional cost of social climbing is revealed in this sexy, stylish and wildly witty look at Europe's posh set and the Americans who crashed the party.

In this uproarious Tony-Award winning play by Christopher Durang, Vanya and Sonia are joined by their overbearing sister Masha, her hot new young lover Spike, their next door neighbor Nina, and a soothsaying house keeper named Cassandra. Borrowing liberally and hilariously from Anton Chekov, Durang creates a play that explores family, rivalry, jealousy, and just how funny misery
