Taking My Turn
September 12 - 28, 2014
A musical conceived and adapted by Robert H. Livingston
Music by Garry William Friedman, Lyrics by Will Holt
Taking My Turn is the award-winning, critically acclaimed musical by the same team that collaborated on the hit show The Me Nobody Knows. Taking My Turn was one of the first musicals to deal with aging. The spoken words were collected from interviews with people "in their prime," which became the basis for the non-linear book. Winner! 1984 Outer Critic's Circle Award for Best Lyrics/Music Nominee! Drama Desk Award for Best Musical
Is Life Worth Living?
November 7 - 23, 2014
A comedy by Lennox Robinson
A traveling repertory troupe comes to a small village in Ireland and after a week or so of Ibsen, Chekhov, and Strindberg, the town is driven mad. Is Life Worth Living? is a gloriously goofy satire that imagines the undesirable effects a steady diet of serious drama might have on the amiable residents of the provincial seaside town of Inish. Lennox Robinson's pointed and charming comedy was originally produced in 1933 and successfully revived in 2009 by New York's Mint Theatre company.
The Glass Managerie
January 9 - 25, 2015
A drama by Tennessee Williams
In Tennessee Williams' shattering classic, an aging Southern Belle longs for her youth and dreams of a better life for her children. Her restless son Tom - a would-be poet and the story's narrator - gets swept up in his mother's funny and heartbreaking schemes to find his painfully shy sister, Laura, a husband. The Glass Menagerie is considered to be one of the most beautiful dramas in American theatre.
Tuna Does Vegas
March 6 - 22, 2015
A comedy by Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams
Tuna Does Vegas re-unites the lovable and eccentric characters from the "third smallest town in Texas" as they take a rambling romp in Sin City. The hilarity begins when oddball-conservative radio host Arles Struvie announces on air that he and his wife Bertha Bumiller are heading to Vegas to renew their wedding vows...but everyone in Tuna, Texas goes along for the ride! Danny Davies and Wayne Wright return as all of your favorite characters from the award-winning Greater Tuna productions, plus some new characters too!
Twelve Angry Jurors
May 8 - 24, 2015
A thriller by Reginald Rose, adapted by Sherman L. Sergel
A 19-year old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and- shut case - until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. One of the jurors says, "We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it does become, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted, and a new murder threat is born before their eyes!
July 10 - 26, 2015
A comedy by William Inge
In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and four or five weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning. Cherie, a nightclub chanteuse in a sparkling gown and a seedy fur- trimmed jacket, is the passenger with the most to worry about. A belligerent cowhand is right behind her, ready to sling her over his shoulder and carry her, alive and kicking, all the way to Montana.
