Announcing our 2020 Summer Season!
Kong's Night Out by Jack Neary
This is the story of what happened in the hotel room next to the hotel room where Ann (played by Fay Wray in the 1933 movie) was whisked out into the Manhattan night by King Kong. As low-end Broadway producer Myron Siegel is getting ready to open his latest production,
Foxy Felicia, Myron finds out that his rival is going to open, directly across the street, a very big show, with a very big monkey! As the story unfolds, doors fly open and slam shut, as well as mistaken identities, pies in the face, deceit, underhandedness, and even a couple of romances. It’s a comic look at a classic story, as depicted in the 1933 movie.
Kong’s Night Out runs June 19th - July 18th.
A Little Murder Never
Hurt Anybody by Ron Bernas
As an homage to the screwball comedies of the 1930s, the story centers around New Year’s Eve at the Perry mansion, where Matthew Perry and his wife, Julia, divulge their New Year’s Resolutions ~ his is to kill her before the year is up, and hers is to stay alive through the year so she can attend their daughter Bunny’s wedding. But as Julia dodges Matthew’s murder attempts, several friends and staff mysteriously die on the family estate. Enter Detective Plotnik – a Sam Spade reincarnation who suspects everyone but hasn’t got a clue. As the bodies fall, it seems that Matthew is responsible for murdering everyone except his wife. But if he didn’t do it, “who done it?” A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody runs August 7th – September 5th.
