    Based on several disastrous theatrical experiences, this play examines the process of putting on a show that is less than good. We go from the audition—where the director is more worried about roast beef than paying attention to the warm-up exercise, and the neurotic cast pretends to be bacon—to rehearsals—where a passive-aggressive stage manager gives everyone grief. This bad play within a play won't win any awards, but will keep audiences in stitches. Learn More

    For all the books, movies and sitcoms that have either eulogized or vilified them, the suburbs have been largely ignored by musical theatre—until now. Suburb takes an insightful, witty and nuanced view of the world of the lawnmower, barbecue and the mall, exploring the suburb's rites and rituals with a chorus and four main characters. The stories of these four people—interwoven with the chorus's frequent musical reveries on subjects like mowing the lawn, the mall and the perfection of perfectly grilled meat—form the road map of Suburb.

    Highly intelligent, energetic and ambitious Figaro wanted more than anything to be rich and famous so he could enjoy the splendid life of 18th century France. But he had no chance of succeeding because he was born a second-class citizen, and life for him and the other servants was so unbearable that whispers of revolt drifted through the musty air of the servants' quarters. The tricks Figaro thinks up to get even with the aristocrats produce one of the world's funniest comedies. Learn More
