Spin or fact? Theater or reality? A biting, original political satire that challenges audiences of any political affiliation, THE EXTREMISTS is a labyrinth of wordplay and mind games in which a television talk-show host and his guest, author of a book about terrorism, get lost in their own doublespeak … or are they really double-agents, subversively reprogramming our sound-byte-saturated minds?

Comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit. Or is it? DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment.

This heart-warming comedy from the 30's was a forgotten gem until it was rediscovered in 1980 by a Broadway production that was the surprise smash of the year. It is a true ensemble piece with all nine parts contributing to the story line in a significant way. Its plot focuses on four aging sisters living in a small Midwestern town in 1928, and it deals with ramifications within the family when two of them begin to question their lives and decide to make some changes before it's too late.

Smorgasbord! by Brad Blake is a show centered on food that will make you giggle at its references to different culinary clichés and cultures from Mandarin to Mexican, from candy bars to caviar, from soup to nuts. This collection of sweet innuendo is a very enjoyable “lighthearted” evening (for mature audiences) accompanied by a live band on stage led by Charles Smith. From the creative genius that brought you Wreck The Halls!, this irreverent musical romp will leave you doubl ed-over with laughter!
