Lost in Yonkers

By Neil Simon

Directed by C. Jameson Bradley

A bittersweet Neil Simon Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy set during WW II. Two adolescent brothers, Jay and Artie, are left with their prickly grandmother and their slightly addled aunt while their father is on the road, selling. Soon they are joined by their gangster uncle, who gives the boys some important lessons about real life. Meanwhile, their aunt is dreaming of marrying and moving out, despite grandma's strong opposition. The play blends humor with serious subject matter as the boys try to reconcile their conflicting loyalties to the various members of their extended family.

Baby

Music by David Shire, Lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr.

Directed by Keith Soester

This contemporary musical takes a look at impending parenthood from the perspective of 3 different couples on a college campus. The first couple are students, for whom pregnancy is unexpected and more than a little scary. The second couple, in their 30s, have been actively trying to have a baby for some time, without success. And the final couple find themselves surprised at expecting a child just as they thought their active parenting days had come to a close.

Mary, Mary

By Jean Kerr

Directed by Norm Berger

Mary returns to the apartment she shared with her ex-husband, Bob, to help him and their lawyer sort out some income tax questions. When she arrives, she learns that her ex is engaged to be re-married. She also meets, and falls for, Dirk, her husband's friend, the actor with a reputation for womanizing. This new relationship leads Bob to reconsider his feelings for Mary. A charming and very funny character comedy that effectively satirizes 60s life. Lots of witty dialogue and a bit of physical comedy.

Communicating Doors

By Alan Ayckbourne

Directed by Mike Russo

A mystery-thriller by Alan Ayckbourne, set in the past, present and future. The play takes place in a luxury hotel suite. It begins in 2014, with an elderly man asking a call girl, Poopay, to deliver a confession of his sins (including the murder of 2 ex-wives) to the authorities. They're interrupted by the man's partner in crime, and in trying to escape, the woman discovers a door that transports her to the same room 20 years earlier where she meets the man's still-living second wife. Poopay convinces the woman she's in danger and explains the mystical door. When the wife tries the door for herself, she's transported an additional 20 years backward where she's able to warn the errant husband's first wife of her impending murder. Together the 3 women move back and forth through time to thwart the man's deadly plans. A unique and exciting play that will keep the audience riveted.
