WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE: a parody of the horror
June 16  July 15, 2017      
By Dale Gutzman           SWFL PREMIERE!  

Many are familiar with the 1962 cult-classic movie starring Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. But you've NEVER seen anything like this over-the-top, camp-filled dark comedy! Set in a run-down mansion in the Hollywood hills, two sisters attempt to live out their daily existence amid constant torment and despair. What makes this story so unexpected? You'll have to drag yourself to the theater to find out!

BABY JANE is a bold comedy. -
Was it too campy? Too silly? Too too much? No. It was perfect.  Urban Milwaukee

Every month, three wives meet in one of their homes while their husbands (old college friends) hang out. Each woman is experiencing her own version of marital issues  financial, sexual, emotional  and each is considering divorce. Though typically nothing more than a gripe-and-moan session, this month's gathering sees something different...the men have accidentally locked themselves in the meat locker downstairs. So do the wives let them out...or not? You'll have to see this dark comedy to find out!

...boasts lines and scenes that has everyone laughing as uproariously as The Producers. - Variety

Set in a small Texas town, a family gathers to deal with the death of their elderly matriarch, made more difficult by the fact that the details of her demise are sure to cause embarrassment from the townsfolk. However, the family members themselves give reason enough for embarrassment, as we see them at both their best and their worst (think big hair, lots of booze, cheating, revenge, cross-dressing, and guns)! Loosely based on the playwright's own life, this is an over-the-top black comedy about white trash...and what it means to be yourself.

"SORDID LIVES delightfully mixes humor and heart..." - Orlando Sentinel
...a great comedy with broadly drawn characters and the right touch of humanity to make them just real enough. - Chicago Theater

If you've ever wondered about the answers to some of mankind's most thought-provoking questions, God is here to answer them. Along with some of His Archangels, the Almighty is not afraid to re-tell the Bible the way it was meant to be told...including His all-new-and-vastly-improved Ten Commandments! It would be a sin to miss this one!

Fresh from its successful Broadway run! (Closed Sep. 2016)
"...gut-busting-funny...Its an hour and a half of comedy heaven, and Id gladly watch it annually." - NY Times

Nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play, this heart-warming play begins with the Magrath sisters (Meg, Babe, and Lenny) coming together in their grandfather's house in Mississippi. The catalyst for their reunion, however, is a doozy  Babe has shot her abusive husband. Having been raised in a household filled with dysfunction, the play explores how each sister has dealt with the repercussions of her choices in life, including past resentments, past relatives, and past relationships.

"CRIMES OF THE HEART...should sting the tear ducts as often as it tickles the funny bone." - NY Times
"From time to time a play comes along that restores one's faith in our theatre" NY Magazine

Feb. 2  to 18, 2018
By Neil LaBute

Oh, the awkwardness of a one-night stand  waking up the next day in a strange place, possibly hungover  but if last night went really well, wouldn't you want to do it again? For Doug and Beth, the morning after a wedding reception (with lots of alcohol) reveals some surprising twists that neither could have anticipated. Audiences will encounter love and sex, along with societal expectations that might make some question how much we really care about what other people think.

"...the playwright's gift for amusing banter is very much on display... - Hollywood Reporter

Described as a comedy with balls, this BRAND NEW show is set in Schenectady, NY - specifically, a dingy game-room in an even dingier sports bar. Two friends meet once a month to play ping-pong, as much to escape from their lives as for the game itself. But this particular evening...something is not quite the same...something else is there. Be sure to check out why this little play went from barely-there crowds to standing-room only within four days of its premiere!

CHIPANDGUS is funny, real, sad, and is surely one of the shows to attend. - NY Theater Guide

If you're a fan of the movie, Clue, then this play is a must-see! The team responsible for a recent flop have gathered at  the estate of a potential wealthy backer for their latest project. (The reason for their previous failure? Three of the chorus girls were murdered by the Stage Door Slasher, who has yet to be caught.) From secret passageways to sliding panels, and a strange German maid, mayhem ensues when the killer shows up to strike again! Filled with satire and lots of wit, don't miss this hilarious murder-mystery!

"'s an amusing little romp that pokes fun at the theater and film worlds..." - Chicago Reader engaging, often witty show. - LA Times

By Jeff Baron

Winner of numerous Best Play awards from around the world, this is one that will make audiences laugh and cry. Having almost hit 86-year-old widower, Mr. Green, Ross Gardiner (a young executive in the corporate world) is charged with reckless driving. He must now complete a form of community service  visit Mr. Green every week for the next six months. Though both men are quick to resent these forced visits, their conversations soon reveal family secrets and past hardships. A story of acceptance and open-mindedness, replete with charm and poignancy.  

"...this is a two-person gem." - Denver Post
There is a level of intelligence and compassionate understanding here which exceeds what we expect to find in the category of sentimental comedy entertainments... - Talkin' Broadway
