A clever take on the original battle of the sexes, the witty and sexy new comedy Adam and Eve in the Garden of Delights, or Love comes to Stone Cottage Theatre. Written by local playwright Alejandro de la Costa (The Importance of Being Lovely, Dante: Inferno), Adam and Eve is a religiously incorrect retelling of the story that recasts the notoriously tempting snake as a human. And he's not just any human: He's Serpentum, a sexy hunk who lacks a moral compass and desperately wants to seduce either Adam or Eve in this funny, scandalous and sexy show. Learn More

It is a very cozy theater. There are only 3 rows of seats which sit about 40 to 50 people so its very close to the set. It's a cute set and seats are not comfortable so you might bring a cushion. I loved the main character Ms. Lovely she is a great drag queen and her roommate is very cute too. There is nudity however it's just part of the story line. I love love loved this play.

The show was extremely entertaining and had a great story that most people could relate to. The acting was good and the small theater atmosphere was very intimate. I do agree that this show is not for the prudish, as was made evident in the preshow announcements.

Hilarious, touching, sexy. This play has all these qualities and more. It was unexpectedly deep from a story perspective. I knew it would be funny, I knew it would be sexy...I had no idea that it would touch my heart the way it did. Be warned, it is not for the prudish!! There is explicit language galore and an occasionally naked (quite sexy) guy or two. Mark-Brian Sonna is a master (mistress?) at portraying a conflicted, truly Lovely drag queen who takes no crap from anyone. Run see this show!!

Quotes & Highlights
- "De la Costa imagines timeless stories we all relate to, wraps them in a gay perspective, and entertains audiences, the majority of which are straight. His stories transfer to universal themes. His dialogs are comical and poignant, and the situations he creates between people are relevant and funny. He presents archetypes that play power games with each other and the consequences they experience and the lessons they learn teach us how to live....magnificent."--Charlie Bowles for John Garcia's The Column
Directed by Charles Ballinger
Starring Mark-Brian Sonna as Lovely, Richard S. Blake as Randy and Dylan Peck as Casey
This production features full-frontal nudity, as well as frank talk about gay sex.
About the Ticket Supplier: MBS Productions
MBS Productions specializes in "new theater." In essence, every play or musical they do is a world premier. They are the only theatrical production company in North Texas that specializes exclusively in producing previously unseen works for the stage. They deem their audience to be the most adventurous, sophisticated, and eager, for they know that they'll get to experience these new works.
MBS Productions was founded in 2004 by Mark-Brian Sonna when he produced the show, "Theatre of Death," which was presented at the Teatro Dallas space for the Halloween season. The show consisted of six short plays dating from the middle ages through the present day, all dealing with death. Two of the plays were world premiers, three were new translations, and one was an adaptation of an existing work. This set the tone for what was to come. In 2005, they did a second show of "Theatre of Death" to kick off a 3-show season that carried them through the summer of 2006. In their 2006/2007 season, they presented five plays. They currently produce six shows a year, as well as assist and serve as consultants to other theater companies in developing and producing new and existing plays for their audiences.
