LOBBY HERO 

By Kenneth Lonergan

Jeff the security guard tries to make the most of the graveyard shift, cajoling, joking and talking his way through the night. But when confronted with an epic ethical dilemma, Jeff has a mind-bending problem: he wants to do the right thing, but he can’t figure out what “the right thing” is.
"A masterpiece. The best drama, the best comedy and the best romance of the year, all rolled into one." ~ Time Out New York

SOUVENIR 

By Stephen Temperley

For more than half a century the name Florence Foster Jenkins has been guaranteed to produce explosions of derisive laughter. Not unreasonably so, as this wealthy society eccentric suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Nevertheless, her annual recitals in the ballroom of the Ritz Carlton hotel, where she resided, brought her extraordinary fame. 

"A beguiling comic jewel with a heart." ~ Variety 

"Tone-deaf but utterly pitch-perfect.…A kind of loony triumph."  ~ NY Daily News


November 21 - Dec 29, 2013

LOOT

By Joe Orton

Considered one of the funniest plays of all time, this biting British comedy spins a frenzied web of conspiracies fueled by greed, lust, and hypocrisy. Inept bank robbers hijack mom's coffin to stash the loot from a recent heist, in a farce as macabre as it is hilarious.
