The show features original songs, dances and hilarious burlesque routines.
In the naughty and rowdy 1930s world of burlesque, Chauncey Miles is one of its shining stars. At a time when it was easy to play gay and hazardous to be gay, Chauncey’s laughter-creating clownery on stage stands in sharp contrast to his secret life away from the stage. Wryly comic, poignant.
“…this is a bittersweet tale of repression and rebellion wrapped up in a valentine to a lost theatrical art form.”

When one of the few African-American students at a small New England college receives hate mail, Sarah Daniels, the dean of students, suddenly finds herself faced with a super-explosive situation. This play, with insight and humor, follows Sarah’s attempts to navigate the maze of posturing, accusations, and soul-searching on political correctness.

Love may conquer all, but not before two pairs of lovers are put to the trying test of assorted mis-understandings, and obstacles that others, and they themselves, throw into their paths. With a plot brimming with deceptions of all kinds, masquerading, eaves-dropping, and trick-playing, the author created a high comedy of wit, romance and villainy that has been delighting audiences worldwide for 420 years!

Two renowned scientists, Niels Bohr (Danish) and Werner Heisenberg (German), once collaborators and friends, meet in 1941, when the world is at war and they represent opposite sides. The play gives us an imagined picture of this encounter, treating us to a fascinating discourse on human relationships, memories, personal convictions, and on the fate of the world in the atomic age. Winner of Tony Award for Best Play (2000)
