F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway wrestle with the sparks of art and the perils of creativity.

Brand new, hot off the press, and just as hilarious as it's predecessor MID-LIFE! The Crisis Musical, that performed to critical acclaim at Actors' Playhouse in the summer of 2008.

2014 - 2015 MAINSTAGE SEASON
MURDER BALLAD
Book and lyrics by Julia Jordan
Music and lyrics by Juliana Nash
October 8-November 2, 2014

A GRITTY NEW ADULT ROCK OPERA THAT WAS A HIT OFF-BROADWAY JUST LAST SEASON!

Enter the passionate and violent world of a Lower East Side Bar and a Love Triangle gone wrong. MURDER BALLAD centers on Sara an Upper West-Sider who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her. Featuring a contemporary pop-rock score and a setting where the audience is placed in the bar and up close and personal with the actors, this sexy, explosive new musical explores the complications of love, the compromises we make, and the betrayals that can ultimately undo us.

“I love you, I hate you, I’ll kill you. A hot and sticky rock opera that steams up the room with its violent tabloid tale of illicit love, lust and betrayal" - Variety


MIRACLE ON SOUTH DIVISION STREET
By Tom Dudzick
December 3-28, 2014

Fresh from its Off-Broadway run, MIRACLE ON SOUTH DIVISION STREET is the story of the Nowak family living amidst the urban rubble of Buffalo, NY’s East Side. Clara the family matriarch happily runs her soup kitchen and tends to the family heirloom, a twenty-foot shrine of the Blessed Mother, which adjoins the house. This beacon commemorated the day in 1942 that the Virgin Mary appeared to her father at his home-based barbershop. During the course of this very funny and original play, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the core as the family legend seems to be unraveling. The evening’s results are heartfelt and hilarious.

“Best comedy of the year, with a great hook that will keep generations laughing…you have to see it to believe it.” - The Examiner

BROADWAY’S NEWEST MUSICAL COMEDY!

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple finds that they are not alone. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into their best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives? FIRST DATE is a hysterical and hopeful new Broadway musical about the chances we take to find love.

“Flat-out ingenious” - Variety


THE BOOK CLUB PLAY
By Karen Zacarias
May 13-June 7, 2015

THE BOOK CLUB PLAY is a delightful new comedy about books and the people who love them. When the members of a devoted book club become the subjects of a documentary filmmaker, their intimate discussions of life and literature take on a new meaning with the camera rolling. Add in the unexpected arrival of a provocative new member, and the sudden inclusion of some questionable titles, and long-standing group dynamics take a hilarious turn. This engaging new play is sprinkled with wit, joy and novels galore.

“A delightful, fresh comedy” - Talkin’ Broadway


UNNECESSARY FARCE
By Paul Slade Smith
July 15-August 9, 2015

TWO COPS. THREE CROOKS. EIGHT DOORS. GO
A CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN FARCE

Our final play of the season comes not from New York, but from regional theatre success around the country. In an economy hotel room, an embezzling mayor is about to meet his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there’s some confusion as to who’s occupying which room, who’s being videotaped, who’s taken the money, who’s hired a hit man and why the accountant keeps taking her clothes off. UNNECESSARY FARCE is a dazzlingly funny new play, with one bit overtaking the next...a comic farce to be reckoned with.

“A smash hit. Two hours of non-stop laughter” - ABC-TV
