Next Fall

Broadway's Funniest Heartbreaker

Next Fall

By Geoffrey Nauffts
Directed by Scott Edmiston

“The funniest heartbreaker in town” – NY Times

Sept. 16 – Oct. 15, 2011

A 2010 Tony nominee for Best Play, Next Fall takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. Luke, a devout Christian, and Adam, a non-believer, have been together for four years; yet spiritual differences continue to spark trouble in their relationship. A sudden twist of fate, however, changes everything in this compelling new play that looks at what it means to ‘believe’ and what it might cost us not to.

The Divine Sister

A Holy Outrageous Comedy

The Divine Sister

By Charles Busch
Directed by Larry Coen

“Comic heaven!” – NY1

Oct. 21 – Nov. 19, 2011

The Divine Sister is an inspired homage to every Hollywood film ever made about nuns. Written by Charles Busch, the comic genius behind such classics as Die, Mommie, Die!; Psycho Beach Party; and Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, this gleefully twisted tale tells the story of an indomitable Mother Superior trying to cope with a young postulant experiencing “visions,” a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows.

Red

By John Logan

“Tantalizing and absorbing” – Associated Press

Jan. 6 – Feb. 5, 2012

Winner of six 2010 Tony Awards including Best Play, Red is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability. After he lands the biggest commission in the history of modern art, abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko begins work on a series of large murals with the help of a new young assistant. What takes place between the two men is a master class on the methods and purpose of art and the dynamic relationship between an artist and his creations.
