But amidst the wine, sunshine and glorious architecture of the "eternal city" some questionable behavior is afoot, and Kate's freewheeling teachers are the culprits. As she strives to protect her students, her teachers and her school's reputation, Kate slowly realizes that la dolce vita may be far more dangerous than she ever imagined.

In Call My Publicist! – The Starry Education of a Broadway Press Agent, Joshua Ellis, who was one of the theater's top press agents, gives an insider's view of the glamorous and sometimes maddening world of The Great White Way from a vantage point the public rarely sees. With his very personal, first-hand stories, we hear from Yul Brynner, Carol Channing, Stephen Sondheim, Lena Horne, David Merrick, Jerry Orbach, Sir Trevor Nunn, Eartha Kitt, Eva Le Gallienne, Sandy Duncan, and numerous other theater greats with whom Ellis worked and learned the tricks of the trade. Among the shows he publicized are the original Broadway productions of Into the Woods, 42nd Street, Fences, The Elephant Man, The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music, Big River, and the award-winning revivals of The King and I (Yul Brynner), Dracula (Frank Langella), Peter Pan (Sandy Duncan) and Morning's at Seven. Call My Publicist! is about a love affair with the New York theatre, and like all romances it has its share of joys and heartbreaks.

A beacon of hope, a thunder of truth, a rainbow of love...Lord Tom is a new American musical inspired by Harriet Beecher Stowe's seminal anti-slavery narrative, Uncle Tom's Cabin.
The story follows the fortunes of two slaves Eliza and Tom journeying north and south, respectively, one in shadows, the other in shackles. When first published, Ms. Stowe's book was outsold only by the bible. And now, in this 21st Century offering, directed by John Tartaglia, it continues to herald the call for universal justice, global freedom, and unity of spirit in a colorblind world. The electrifying Phillip Boykin, Tony Award nominee and Theatre World Award winner for his portrayal of Crown in Porgy & Bess, stars as Tom and leads a cast of 17 Broadway actors with a compelling script and score of twenty-six original songs ranging in musical styles from spiritual, blues, gospel, jazz, ragtime, to contemporary ballad, anthem, lullaby, and upbeat comedic swing. Lord Tom takes the audience on a journey in which faith and freedom prevail in this 21st century trajectory of the legendary novel.
The White Plains Performing Arts Center play reading series of classic, TONY honored Best Plays continues with Tennessee William's Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. The Nakd Stage Play Reading Series features actors with scripts in hand, no sets, costumes or props. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE WORDS.
The play tells the story of greed and deception within a patriarchal southern family. Specifically, the plot focuses on the turbulent relationship of a wife and husband, Maggie "The Cat" and Brick Pollitt, and their interaction with Brick's family over the course of one evening gathering at the family estate in Mississippi, ostensibly to celebrate the birthday of patriarch and tycoon "Big Daddy" Pollitt. Maggie, through wit and beauty, has escaped a childhood of desperate poverty to marry into the wealthy Pollitt family, but finds herself suffering in an unfulfilling marriage. Brick, an aging football hero, has neglected his wife and further infuriates her by ignoring his brother's attempts to gain control of the family fortune. Brick's indifference and his near-continuous drinking, date back to the recent suicide of his friend Skipper. Big Daddy is unaware that he has cancer and will not live to see another birthday; his doctors and his family have conspired to keep this information from him and his wife. His relatives are in attendance and attempt to present themselves in the best possible light, hoping to receive the definitive share of Big Daddy's enormous wealth.
Broadway stars Patti LuPone and Bobby Cannavale head the cast of The Rose Tattoo, one of Tennessee Williams' greatest plays, directed by Doug Hughes. It is the story of Serafina, a Louisiana widow who withdraws from the world after her husband's death and expects her daughter to do the same. One day, a man resembling her late husband comes into her life and unlocks her fiery passion, wit, anger and pride. This is a play of power, humanity and soaring emotion.
Patti LuPone is a two-time Tony Award recipient (Evita, Gypsy) and regularly appears on television, in films and concert halls around the world. Bobby Cannavale is an Emmy Award-winning actor (Boardwalk Empire) whose recent Broadway shows include The Big Knife, Glengarry Glen Ross and The Motherf*cker With the Hat. Doug Hughes is a noted Broadway director who won a Tony Award for Doubt.
Written by members of the Plastic Theatre and conceived & directed by Tony Speciale, The Secret Court is inspired by true events that occurred at Harvard University in the spring of 1920, when a student's suicide sparked a campus-wide investigation by a panel of administrators who convened to investigate, expose and ultimately expel a group of homosexual students. Both intimate and epic, The Secret Court explores themes of fear and societal intolerance that are as relevant today as they were 95 years ago.
Shockingly, for more than eighty years the events surrounding the incident were covered-up, until 2002 when Amit Paley, a student journalist for The Harvard Crimson, came upon a reference to the "Secret Court" while combing university archives. After initial resistance, Harvard granted Mr. Paley access to the long-abandoned files of over 500 pages of documents describing the systematic persecution of a group of students. The revelation of this controversy motivated conceiver and director Speciale's own journey into the court transcripts, family correspondence, and academic records revealing the lives of these promising young men. Speciale and his team of co-writers devoted hours of research and development decoding the previously hidden records from The Court, piecing together a timeline of events in order to shine a light on a long ignored event in our country's history.
