Last of the Red Hot Lovers by Neil Simon
June 20-29, 2014

A revival of a classic Neil Simon comedy, Last of the Red Hot Lovers follows one man’s hapless pursuit of the swinger’s lifestyle. The mid-life crisis has never been funnier. Simon’s deft one-liners abound, and we can only hope none of these misadventures will seem familiar to anyone in the audience. And if they do, we won’t tell. You’ve been punished enough.

The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
July 11-20, 2014

The Hound of the Baskervilles is a very new, madcap romp. Three gifted comedians act out Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic famous tale in a decidedly “non-classic” way. Hang on tight as this one comes at you fast. But if you miss a joke, don’t worry, another will be along in seconds.

The Fantasticks book and lyrics by Tom Jones, Music by Harvey Schmidt
July 25-August 3, 2014

Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s The Fantasticks is the longest running musical in the history of New York theatre. Based on Edmund Rostand’s 1894 classic comedy, The Romancers, and featuring the classic song “Try to Remember (that kind of September),” The Fantasticks is a shiny tale of young love and old wisdom that is certain to warm the heart. The musical opened Off-Broadway in 1960 and ran for 42 years and over 17,000 performances. So beloved is the show that in 2006 it reopened, and is still going strong.
