Chicago

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse; Music by John Kander and Lyrics by Fred Ebb

Devilish and delightful, Chicago is an indisputable Broadway landmark that delivers one big musical showstopper after another. John Kander and Fred Ebb's now classic score keeps the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses, Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart moving at a gunshot pace. A multiple Tony, Grammy and Oscar winner, this stinging satire on corruption, crime and celebrity based on true crime stories of the period features Bob Fosse's steamy and sexy moves during the "jazz hot" 1920's.

Crimes of the Heart

by Beth Henley

Down in Mississippi three sisters must "learn how to get through these real bad days" from the past to a future. Beth Henley's very funny, very touching Crimes of the Heart won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critic's Circle Award. The play takes us on a journey which Lenny, the eldest sister, who is about to hit 30 -- Meg in the middle who is home from an unsuccesful try at a singing career -- and Babe, the youngest, who just shot her husband, must overcome the legacy of self destruction stemming from their mother's earlier suicide. With the help of the men who love them and their own better natures the sisters reunite with love in this alway quirky, unpredictable comedy.

How The Other Half Loves

by Alan Ayckbourn

How the Other Half Loves is a brilliant farce by the master of the comic genre, Alan Ayckbourne. The play concerns the lives and loves of three couples at different stages in their marriages. William and Mary are newlyweds. Bob and Teresa have a loveless marriage but a new baby. Frank is the boss of the other two men; he is often confused and is married to his long suffering wife Fiona. Through dinner parties, mistakes, lies and infidelity, the play descends into hysterical chaos. How the Other Half Loves is a wonderful and witty play by a playwright at the very top of his game.

Be Aggressive

by Annie Weisman

In the Southern California community of Vista Del Sol, life should be paradise. But life is thrown into chaos when 17-year-old Laura's mother is killed in a gruesome hit and run accident. Suddenly thrown into the roles of wife to her distant workaholic father and mother to her precocious younger sister Hannah, Laura struggles to cope with grief, sudden adulthood, and the hell of high school life. Laura throws herself with total abandon into the world of cheerleading when she befriends popular cheerleader Leslie, a girl with a terrifying zeal for all things cheer. Leslie convinces Laura to run away to the "Spirit Institute of the South," a hardcore, take-no-prisoners school of cheerleading. Armed with her dead mother's Mobil card and some stolen cash, Laura embarks on a journey to escape her life only to find herself faced with unresolved grief, something from which she cannot escape. A "Valleygirl" take on Greek tragedy equipped with a chorus of cheerleaders, Be Aggressive is the off-beat telling of a classic tale of journey and catharsis in the complicated life of a teenage girl.
