Following the internationally acclaimed sold-out engagements on Broadway and London's West End, theatre legend, Oscar-recipient and five-time Tony Award® winner Angela Lansbury returns to the stage this winter in her Tony Award® winning role as Madame Arcati, in Michael Blakemore's revival of Noël Coward's smash-hit comedy play, Blithe Spirit.
Researching for his new novel, Charles Condomine invites the implausible medium Madame Arcati to his house for a séance. While consumed in a trance, Madame Arcati unwittingly summons the ghost of Charles' dead wife Elvira. Appearing only to Charles, Elvira soon makes a play to reclaim her husband, much to the chagrin of Charles' new wife Ruth. Now if he wants his latest marriage to stand a GHOST of a chance, he'd better conjure up a solution quickly. One husband, two feuding wives and a whisper of mischief in the air – who will win in Coward's unworldly comedy?

Thank heaven! A Gigi like you've never seen! Starring Vanessa Hudgens as Gigi, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's celebrated musical plays a pre-Broadway engagement at the Kennedy Center in an all-new production directed by Eric Schaeffer (Million Dollar Quartet, the eight-time Tony-nominated Kennedy Center revival of Follies) with an entirely re-envisioned book by acclaimed British playwright and Emmy-nominated screenwriter Heidi Thomas.
Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, Gigi is a romantic musical comedy about a young woman coming of age in the magical world of La Belle Époque where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail. When she finds true love with a wealthy young playboy, both must overcome their destinies to create a future together.
With a Tony Award-winning score, Gigi features such Broadway standards as "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," "I Remember It Well," and "The Night They Invented Champagne." First a novella by Colette, Gigi evolved from a play starring a then-unknown Audrey Hepburn, to the nine-time Academy Award-winning Best Picture starring Leslie Caron, and then a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.
Recommended for age 10 and up.
Directed by guest artist Serge Seiden, Janusz Glowacki's comic Hunting Cockroaches explores the plight of a pair of immigrant artists, once successful in their home country, as they struggle to adapt to life and work in America.

This world-premiere slapstick comedy is a story of mishaps and moxie, the romance of Hollywood and ultimately a Hollywood-caliber romance. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Crimes of the Heart.
Mistaken identity, misplaced ardor and a fight for true love ensues in Alexis Piron's classic 1738 French farce, The Metromaniacs. Would-be poet Damis has fallen for the works of the mysterious Breton poetess, not knowing she is really middle-aged gentleman Francalou. However, Francalou allows Damis to believe the poetess is his own daughter, Lucile, in order to separate her from Dorante, the son of his sworn enemy. Add to the chaos some scheming servants, pseudonyms, disguises and poetic wooing reminiscent of Cyrano and there is much to untangle before love-plots are resolved and a happy ending found.
Synetic Founding Artistic Director Paata Tsikurishvili will direct one of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies, following the success of Synetic's production of Twelfth Night.

Set in 1950's Las Vegas, this flirtatious and fiercely funny show will blow you away with rockin' tunes, rat packers, and dreamy chicks who will shake, rattle, and roll as only Synetic performers can! Synetic's lively interpretation of Much Ado About Nothing will delve into the true meaning of courtship, love and commitment.

Orgon has fallen under the spell of the pious fraud Tartuffe, at great cost to his family and household, in Tartuffe, Molière's crowning achievement and scathing indictment of religious hypocrisy. The family watches in astonishment as their leader obeys every word of Tartuffe's false piety and divine authority—who meanwhile is stealing secrets and seducing the lady of the house. Only by conspiring, hiding in closets and climbing under tables (all in true French farce fashion) can the family reveal Tartuffe's fake divinity.
