In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer Barry Dragonetti. Intending to settle her latest husband’s affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry’s impossible Croatian mother, a dash of current politics and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion. This feisty romantic comedy comes from John Patrick Shanley, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Doubt and Outside Mullingar, and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck.

love letters

a play by A.R. GURNEY

directed by Judy Clemens

When Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts an invitation to Melissa Gardner’s birthday party, and Melissa writes a thank-you note to ask just why he got her “The Lost Princess of Oz”,

a romantic friendship and correspondence destined to last for almost half a century is born. Both from affluent, East Coast families, the friends communicate with each other through angst-ridden boarding school experiences, European adventures, failed marriages, and the ups and downs of careers.  A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters is a tender, tragi-comic, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends. 

This production replaces the previously scheduled
The Legend of Georgia McBride

a comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten

This joyful and exuberant comedy from the authors of The Dixie Swim Club focuses on three women at crossroads in their lives. Sisters Fanny and Willa Wild and their sister-in-law, Johnnie Faye are a feisty and fun-loving trio who have supported and cheered one another through life’s highs and lows. Now, as Fanny turns 60, Willa is frustrated with her nursing job, and Johnnie Faye loses her house, they realize they are buried under a mound of keepsakes and possessions nobody wants. With equal doses of hilarity and heart, these women help each other discover that it’s never too late to take another one of life’s paths for a grand new adventure.

Winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical, Gentleman’s Guide is a roller coaster of a comic operetta, quick changes, and clever wordplay. Set in 1907, Monty Navarro is a penniless clerk who is informed after the death of his mother that he is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst. After the imperious ruling Lord dismisses Monty’s claim of being a relative, the eight heirs ahead of young Mr. Navarro begin dying in natural and unnatural ways. Once the murders start happening, the fun begins to figure out the fate of the next D’Ysquith relative Monty sets his sights on, as well as to observe his increasingly desperate attempts to juggle the affection of two beautiful women.
