Clever Little Lies

By Joe DiPietro
June 18 – July 31, 2016

When Bill Sr.’s wife Alice notices that he is on edge after a tennis match with their son, she immediately springs into action. Determined to get to the bottom of her husband’s suspicious behavior, Alice organizes a family evening, inviting Bill Jr. and her daughter-in-law Jane over for drinks and dessert. The ill-fated evening quickly devolves into sidesplitting chaos as unexpected secrets are revealed. Shocking and hilarious, Clever Little Lies is a story of love and marriage, for better and for worse.

Constellations

By Nick Payne
June 29 – July 30, 2016

One relationship. Infinite possibilities.
In the beginning Marianne and Roland meet at a party. They go for a drink, or perhaps they don’t. They fall madly in love and start dating, but eventually they break up. After a chance encounter in a supermarket they get back together, or maybe they run into each other and Marianne reveals that she’s now engaged to someone else and that’s that. Or perhaps Roland is engaged. Maybe they get married, or maybe their time together will be tragically short.

Satchmo at the Waldorf

By Terry Teachout
August 17 – September 17, 2016

In this tour de force one man show, the great jazz legend, Louis Armstrong comes to life as he tells his story from his room at the Waldorf Astoria. Reflecting on his life and work, the great “Satchmo” examines his complicated relationship with his white manager, Joe Glaser and his friend and rival, Miles Davis. As one actor plays all three parts, a picture of the greatest of all jazz trumpeters begins to take shape and leaves us as breathless as the man himself after a blistering solo.
Titles and run dates may change based on availability.
