It Can’t Happen Here adapted from the Sinclair Lewis novel by Tony Taccone & Bennett Cohen

November 10, 11, 16, 17, & 18

A cautionary dark satire about the fragility of democracy and how fascism can take hold even in the land of liberty.  The play follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness.  Witnessing the new president's tyranny from the sidelines is a liberal, middle-class newspaper editor who trust the system will fix itself - until he ends up in a prison camp.  Sinclair Lewis' 1935 novel gets a fresh update in this adaptation that examines what brings a citizenry to the point of sacrificing its own freedom and how a courageous few can prevail to overcome the fall.

 

A Dog’s House by Micah Schraft

December 8, 9, 14, 15, & 16

On the surface, Michael and Eden are a solid pair with a bright future.  When their beloved Rottweiler, Jock, grows unexpectedly violent - killing the neighbor's toy poodle, and then taking a bite out of the neighbor - Michael and Eden must confront darker truths in their relationship that have been ignored for too long.

 

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

Performed by Les Chatons Noir

January 19, 20, & 21st

Winner of the 1948 Pulitzer Prize in drama.  The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely "normal" young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.

 

Lungs by Duncan Macmillan

February 9, 10, 14 (Cupid’s Cabaret Performance), 16, & 17

The world is getting hotter, there's unrest overseas- the seas themselves aren't very calm- and one couple is thinking about having a child.  LUNGS is a smart and funny drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.

 

Tartuffe by Moliere, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur

Performed by Les Chatons Noir

March 23, 24, & 25

A sparkling version of one of the great comedies of the French Theater. The story takes place in the home of the wealthy Orgon, where Tartuffe—a fraud and a pious imposter—has insinuated himself. He succeeds magnifi-cently in winning the respect and devotion of the head of the house and then tries to marry his daughter and seduce his wife and scrounge the deed to the property. He nearly gets away with it, but an emissary from King Louis XIV arrives in time to recover the property, free Monsieur Orgon and haul Tartuffe off to jail. And so his duplicity is finally exposed and punished. But not before the author has mercilessly examined the evil that men can commit in the guise of religious fervor and the dangers that imperil those who would believe only what they choose to believe despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary.

Evil Dead the Musical by George Reinblatt

May 11, 12, 17, 18, & 19

Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons.  It's all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day.  Blood flies.  Limbs are dismembered.  Demons tells bad jokes ... and all to music.  Is it scary?  No.  Is it gory?  No.  This is a pure comedy start to finish.  And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects, and really awesome musical numbers, EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL is unlike any live show you've ever seen.
