A wildly theatrical, hilarious and innovative retelling of how a miserable orphan came to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up, PETER AND THE STARCATCHER upends the century-old legend of Peter Pan. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, PETER AND THE STARCATCHER playfully explores the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship duty and love. Winner of 5 Tony Awards, a dozen brilliant actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters using their enormous talent, ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination.

“Wise, poignant, honest and, well, understanding of our hopeless desire to never grow old.” Chicago Tribune

“This adaptation of the Peter Pan original story is rich in antic humor and theatrical invention.” Hollywood Reporter

by Dale Wasserman

Boisterous, ribald and ultimately shattering, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST is the unforgettable story of a mental hospital and its inhabitants. When a brash new inmate arrives, the rigid program of the ward, which is headed by the tyrannical Nurse Ratched, is thrown up for grabs. In a world where sanity means conformity and following the rules is the only way to survive, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST is a powerful exploration of both the beauty and the danger of being an original. This Tony-award winning adaption by Dale Wasserman pays homage to the original storytelling of the Classic novel by Ken Kesey, while adding a chilling, poignant edge that captivates and enthralls audiences.

"Scarifying and powerful." The New York Times

Book and Music by Joe Kinosian
Book and Lyrics by Kellen Blair

Everyone is a suspect in MURDER FOR TWO, a hilarious musical murder mystery with a twist: One actor investigates the crime, the other plays all of the suspects. And they both play the PIANO! A zany blend of classic musical comedy and madcap mystery, this 90-minute whodunit is a highly theatrical duet loaded with killer laughs.
“Ingenious...a snazzy vaudevillian double-act. With just two actors, a piano and a prop or two, the show spins out a curlicued comic mystery story animated by funny, deftly turned songs.” New York Times

“One has to be swept away by the zany delirium of it all!” LA Times

by Lauren Gunderson

Four badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world.

“Always pertinent, but especially timely at this moment…” Boston Globe

“The rapid-fire barbs, quick-witted retorts, and fantastic dialogue makes the show a truly riotous success.” DC

Based on the book by Chaim Potok

This award-winning play by Aaron Posner, based on the best-selling novel by Chaim Potok (the same writers of
Playhouse on Park’s sold-out hit, THE CHOSEN) tells the story of Asher Lev, a young Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic upbringing and his desperate need to fulfill his artistic promise. When his artistic genius threatens to destroy his relationship with his parents and community, young Asher realizes he must make a difficult choice between art and faith. This stirring adaptation of a modern classic presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of what it means to be an artist.

The thrilling, final collaboration by musical theatre greats, John Kander and Fred Ebb (CHICAGO, CABARET), The Scottsboro Boys has been hailed as one of the most visionary pieces ever to grace the Broadway stage. Nominated for a staggering twelve Tony Awards, THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS will have you tapping your toes and hollering for justice as the tables are turned on one of the most infamous events in American history: nine African-American men accused of a crime they did not commit. With its brilliant stew of performance styles and piercing new songs, it is truly a triumph of the American Musical Theatre.

“Genuinely radical musical, full of stinging indignation and plaintive power.” The Guardian

Based on the book, “Flat Stanley” by Jeff Brown

Based on the best-selling book series, Stanley folds his way around the world with his flat-tastic hijinks. Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday, run-of-the-mill, ten-year-old: normal mom and dad, normal little brother, normal life. That's just the problem... for Stanley, life is too normal. He wants to travel the world, do something amazing, something no one's ever seen before. Careful what you wish for, Stanley! One night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley's bed comes loose and falls – right on top of Stanley! The next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat... really, REALLY flat! In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley – the ultimate exchange student – scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. He's stamped, posted and cancelled from Hollywood and France to Honolulu and beyond. And, whether he's thwarting a robbery at the Louvre Museum in Paris, or "hanging ten" off the coast of Hawaii, Stanley is closing in on his goal of being a three-dimensional boy once more.
