A Funny Thing Happpened on the Way to the Forum

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent, and one of the funniest musicals ever written-- the perfect escape from life's troubles. This classic takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000 year old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of Philia, a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom.

The Importance of Being Earnest

A universal favorite, this show displays Oscar Wilde's wit and theatrical genius at its best. John leads a double life. In the country, he is known as Mr. Worthing, a stable, serious young man with a young ward. But in the city, he leads a very different life with a very different name! Hilarity ensues when his two worlds collide. Secret identities, stuffy Victorian manners, and wild twists and turns all make this show one of theatre's greatest comedies.

The brainy and beautiful Belle yearns to escape her provincial life... and her brute of a suitor, Gaston.

Dancing flatware, menacing wolves, and singing furniture fill the stage with thrills in this beloved fairy tale about very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love.
