This jumping, jiving Tony nominee is a rebellious teen comedy event! Based on the cult classic, 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby features a delightfully demented book from the writers of Hairspray and a rockabilly score from the co-founder of Fountains of Wayne and the executive producer of The Daily Show. It’s 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore.

England’s King of Comedy, Alan Ayckbourn, tells the tale of Roland, a hard-drinking, irascible tycoon who is interested in buying an old Victorian house that was once a brothel. His wife, a frustrated dancer who is constantly threatening to leave him, joins an eccentric cast of characters in a fantastic, frenetic, race up and down the dark mansion’s many steps in what The Evening News called “A farce of riotous delight.”

For Mature Audiences


Savage, sexual, barbarous and bloody. John Ford’s murderous masterpiece exposes the incestuous love of Giovanni and Annabella, a brother and sister squeezed in the damnable grip of sexual discovery and forbidden passion. This ravishing and fierce Jacobean juggernaut wreaked havoc when it was written in the 1600’s—and in every production since.

Perhaps the most famous and ingenious of all modern comedies, Oscar Wilde’s sensational characters and zippy one-liners generally result in all-around hilarious confusion on stage and satisfied, knowing laughter in the audience. Jack and Algernon each “reinvent the truth” to woo the women who have captured their hearts. When the gentlemen are coerced to reveal their web of lies and reveal themselves to their ladies, being earnest takes new meaning.
