Description: "The Pulitzer Prize" winning playwright Donald Margulies scampers to the defense of good old-fashioned yarn spinning with SHIPWRECKED. The breathless story of a Victorian gentleman [and] seafaring wanderer springs to life like a theatrical pop-up book [in a] kid-friendly comedy. The audience is left to judge whether he is an inspirational figure touched by imaginative genius or a mere con man. We can also consider the possibility that the hero of this true story based on an untrue story is a little of each." (Charles Isherwood, NY Times)

Description: The Comedy of Errors explores the essential human longing for what makes us whole. We examine the need to find our other half, and in so doing, find ourselves. And ..oh yes... it's a COMEDY! The set up is simple: Two sets of twins separated early in life end up in the same town and hilarity ensues. Based on the classic works of Plautus, Comedy of Errors is a true farce. Shakespeare knows you already know the story: so we can have loads of fun in the execution! Sprinkle in some mysticism and the characters may think they're going truly mad! Now imagine this escapade set against the boozy jazzy backdrop of the 1920s Gatsby era and let the revelry begin. Madness Mayhem and Merriment! Comedy of Errors is a zany romp full of mistaken identity and silly shenanigans, and hopefully it all turns out alright in the end; but oh!, what a joyful journey it is getting there.

It is an acting tour-de-force for Ivey Award-winning Sonja Parks, who transforms seamlessly into a dozen characters who surround an 11-year old Asian girl, using accents, gestures and attitude to distinguish her personas in this compelling drama.

Description: Billy instantly falls in love with a beautiful girl he meets in a taxi. When he discovers she's boarding the same London-bound ship his boss and co-worker Reno are boarding, he sneaks on himself. The beautiful girl is engaged to a stuffy British aristocrat, but that doesn't stop the love-struck Billy. With the help of other passengers, Billy seeks to evade Reno, whose love he doesn't return, and capture the heart of the girl of his dreams "all without hurting anyone's feelings. Originally penned in 1934 with music and lyrics by American composer and songwriter Cole Porter, this musical comedy was revived on Broadway in 2011 and won a Tony Award for Best Musical Revival that same year. Widely considered the definitive musical comedy of the 1930s, the AM New Yorker calls it, “a giddy explosion of escapist romance, combining old-fashioned farce, extended dance breaks and light, breezy songs."
