Written by Paul Slade, this award winning contemporary American fast paced farce is presented in the tradition of Lend Me A Tenor (but contemporary) andNoises Off (but American). The action takes place in an economy motel room, where an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there’s some confusion as to who’s occupying which room, who’s being videotaped, who’s taken the money, who’s hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. Throw in a Scottish gangster with some bagpipes and some slamming doors and the comedy is non-stop and not to be missed.

Written by Lynn Ahrens, with Music by Stephen Flaherty (the same duo who brought us last years popular Lucky Stiff), and co-conceived by Eric Idle (who brought us last years smash hit Spamalot), Seussical is a fresh, unique, off beat, fun musical that brings to life all of our favorite characters from the whimsical imagination of Dr. Seuss, along with infectious, fun music. Bursting with frivolity and imagination the colorful characters (all our favorites are there, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and the amazing little boy with a big imagination—Jojo) transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. The colorful musical (including such songs as “Oh, the Things You Can Think” and “It’s Possible”) tells the story of Horton, an elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks”. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. With infectious music and a fun, fast moving story, the show promises a good time for all including adults, kids, kids at heart and anyone who has ever read a Dr. Seuss book.

Created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, and Drama Desk Award winner Andrew Lippa and based on the popular TV show, this inventive and fresh from Broadway new musical comedy brings the weird and wonderful Addams Family to devilishly, delightful life. That lovable family of creepy kooks are still alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park. Of course, the Addams family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, is in turmoil. Their daughter Wednesday, now 18, finds herself falling in love – a sensation that is unsettling for both her and her family of endearing misfits. When the teen invites her new boyfriend over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addams household, comic chaos (including everything from an amorous giant squid to mixed-up potions to a scorching tango) ensues. Winner of the Broadway.com audience choice award for favorite new Broadway musical this show delivers ghoulish laughter, fun music and an evening of weird and wonderful entertainment you will want to be sure to see.
