Arsenic and Old Lace

by Joseph Kesselring

Two charming ladies, a cellar of dead bodies, two brothers with serious identity issues, and a glass of elderberry wine with arsenic, strychnine, and just a pinch of cyanide make for a zany comedy and a sure crowd-pleaser.

Long Day’s Journey Into Night

by Eugene O’Neill 

Celebrated as the greatest work by America’s only Nobel Prize-winning playwright, O'Neill's wrenching autobiographical masterpiece delves into the darkest episodes of his tortured family’s addictions, insecurities, and self-loathing.  Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1957 and numerous awards in the years that have followed, this brilliant script was most recently recognized with a 2013 Olivier Award for Best Revival.

The Fantastiks

Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones, Music by Harvey Schmidt,  Based on Les Romanesques by Edmond Rostand 

It is the longest-running production of any kind in the world, and with good reason.  After all these years it stands as a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.
