Born Yesterday

by Garson Canin

Directed by Rachel Klem

 

The vulgar, egotistic junkman Harry Brock has come to a swanky hotel in Washington to make crooked deals with government big-wigs. He has brought with him the charming but dumb ex-chorus girl Billie, whose lack of social graces embarrasses even Harry. Billie must be taught some of the amenities, and a few basic bits of information.

 

Side by Side by Sondheim

Music by  Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein and Jule Styne and Richard Rodgers and Mary Rodgers
Lyrics by  Stephen Sondheim
Continuity by  Ned Sherrin

Directed by John McIlwee

 

Get ready to laugh, cry and fall in love with lyrics that are heartbreakingly true and music that captures the soaring emotions of a new generation with Side By Side By Sondheim. Simple and unpretentious, this Tony Award-winning musical is a perfect introduction to the work of this contemporary master and a must for die-hard fans.

 

Wait Until Dark
by Frederick Knott

Directed by Mia Self

 

A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman's murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. Aa deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between the two.
