When a wealthy entrepreneur is shot down and killed in his prime his murder reveals a history of indiscretions including infidelity, bribery, fraud and even manslaughter. But it takes more than one cook to stir this broth, and no doubt cyanide may season the recipe. His little black book is rather revealing. The suspect list grows and grows. Take a sentimental journey and unravel a web of lies, secrets and unprecedented events that lead to some surprisingly unexpected homicides. It's a case of deception, of deep, dark secrets, and self centered disloyalty. This homicide investigation is so much fun, you'll want to play it again, Sam.

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.

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.

I Love a Piano is a look at America through the insightful and hopeful eyes of Irving Berlin, who, according to Jerome Kern, "... has no place in American music. He is American Music." The show, which traces the life of a uniquely flawed upright piano, celebrates the music and lyrics of the legendary composer, showcasing 64 of his more than 1000 songs. From "Alexander's Ragtime Band" to "Blue Skies"; from "Puttin' on the Ritz" and "Cheek to Cheek" to "Always" and "White Christmas" to "Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning" and "God Bless America", Irving Berlin's songbook is a history lesson set to music. Conceived and written by Ray Roderick and Michael Berkeley, this joyful salute captures the spirit of America from the ragtime rhythms of the early 20th century, through the rich sophistication of the 1920s and 30s; from the rousing patriotism of two World Wars into the prosperous spirit of the 1950s and well beyond.

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.
