Take Me Out
September 12 – October 12, 2014
By Richard Greenberg
Directed by Doug Wilder
Winner of the 2003 Tony Award for Best Play
Darren Lemming has it all and then some. He is the epitome of a baseball star…handsome, charismatic, rich, infallible and every guy’s all-American hero. But when Darren comes out of the closet he sets off a chain of events that upends everything and threatens to undermine the American pastime. Powerful, lyrical, and often hysterically funny, this play is a rhapsody that no lover of the sport—or of theatre—should miss.

Contains nudity and strong language

Some naughty, feisty language


Doubt, a Parable
February 6 – March 1, 2015
By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Michael Dove
Recipient of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Best Play Tony Award.
Set in 1964 against the backdrop of an America in the midst of change, a progressive young priest’s conduct with a student comes under question by the parish school’s principal, a veteran nun twice his age. But with no proof, can there be certainty? As questions begin to plague her, Sister Aloysius finds herself consumed by doubt in an ancient institution that once provided the comforts of community, discipline and faith. A powerhouse drama enclosed in an eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences.



Old Wicked Songs
April 10 – May 17, 2015
By Jon Marans
Directed by Michael Chamberlin
Hoping to reconnect with his music and shatter the artistic block that’s plagued his career, Stephen Hoffman, an arrogant young American piano prodigy, ventures to Vienna and finds himself in the hands of a passionate master-teacher. It seems impossible that they will ever get along, much less work together. One is European, one American; one old-fashioned, the other modern; one passionate, the other technically precise; and finally, one a seeming anti-Semite, and the other a Jew. Only music—their one common bond—releases the burning emotions of the teacher and melts the frigidity of the student.


The Good Counselor
June 5 - June 28, 2015
By Kathryn Grant
Directed by Alex Levy
Vincent seeks truth, not only for his client, a mother accused of killing her three-week old son, but also for himself and his haunted past with his own neglectful mother. Both riveting and poetic in the same breath, this vibrant new play is not just another courtroom drama but a thoughtful and thought-provoking examination of human failing and redemption.
