WINNER: 1960 TONY AWARD for Best Play!
This warm and deeply moving docudrama touches on the poignant Alabama childhood friendship between the blind, deaf and mute Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan. Dramatizing the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her violent patient, The Miracle Worker is one of the great classics of the American theatre. Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of one single, glorious word that sparks her emergence from her silent,
desperate, secret world.

"Absorbing and moving." The New York Post

One of Shakespeare’s funniest creatures is the cantankerous and flirty Sir John Falstaff, a soldier who is down on his luck and hoping to turn his fortunes around by seducing the wives of two wealthy citizens in the city of Windsor. Lazy egotist that he is, he sends Mistress Page and Mistress Ford identical love letters. The clever duo discovers his double-dealing and turn the tables to the delight of the audience and the confusion of the women’s suspecting husbands. All around merriment ensues.

The perfect musical lover’s guilty pleasure featuring Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Prince Charming, Rapunzel and friends in a fractured-fairy tale blending magic, mystery, seduction and silliness! A tale told best live on stage--the movie was colorful, but the stage play is playful, wonderful and passionate and grows richer with each viewing!

A smash hit in Paris (where it played for over two years) and in London (where it ran for six years), Don’t Dress for Dinner is described by Chicago Style Magazine as “two of the most rib-tickling hilarious hours I have spent in the theatre…the right combination of smart writing...A text book example of how to create the perfect farce.” Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charmingly converted French farmhouse and has invited his best friend along to provide an alibi. What could possibly go wrong? Well.... let’s just say, EVERYTHING! “Hurtling along at the speed of light, [this] breathtaking farce is a near faultless piece of theatrical invention.” The Guardian

Time magazine hailed it as one of the ten best plays of 1991 and it was the Tony Award-winner for “Best Play” in 1992. Lilting, laughter-filled, flighty and weighty, Dancing at Lughnasa, in the words of The New York Times, “does exactly what theater was born to do, carrying both its characters and audience aloft on those waves of distant music and ecstatic release that, in defiance of all language and logic, let us dance and dream just before night must fall.” “This is no way a play to be missed—simply a wondrous experience. Experience it.” The New York Post
