Adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the film, the musical is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend. The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical of the 2004–2005 season and received 14 Tony Award nominations.
Due to mature language and some staged "violence," parental discretion is advised.

The Laramie Project
by Moises Kaufman and the Members of the Tectonic Theater Projec
Directed by Noah Sylvester

Almost twenty years ago a group of theatre artists traveled to Laramie, Wyoming to uncover the story behind the brutal torture and murder of a twenty-one year old, gay student at the University of Wyoming—Matthew Shepard. Over the course of a year and a half they conducted over 200 interviews with people of the town. The Laramie Project is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. What can the play tell us in 2018?

Top Girls 
by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg
Glenn Wallichs Theatre
March 16, 17, 23, 24 at 8PM & 18, 25 at 2PM

We’re in a London restaurant in the modern day and Marlene is celebrating her promotion to Managing Director of the Top Girls Employment agency. Marlene is joined by the 11th century Pope Joan; the Victorian Traveler Isabella Bird; and the 13th century courtesan turned Buddhist nun, Lady Nijo.   Considered by many one of the finest plays of post WWII Britain, this clever, deceptively light entertainment, explores what price women pay for success.  Brilliantly theatrical, Top Girls, written during the Thatcher years in Britain, seems written for today.
