It's 1943 and a group of prisoners is heading from occupied France to Buchenwald concentration camp when an explosion derails the train. Guy de Bonheur, an actor, seizes the opportunity to convince the guards to let him escape. How? By performing Arabian Nights to prove that his plays are not subversive, and he doesn't deserve to be rounded up. Of course, with all of his other actors gone, he'll have to play all the roles himself. And in The Thousandth Night Guy, played by Marcus Kyd, does just that. Written by Carol Wolf, The Thousandth Night is a remarkable blend of comedy and tragedy, not to mention a feat of character acting by the lone performer. Tuesday and Wednesday performances also feature a post-show Talkback. Learn More

A delightful evening! While it won’t have you pondering the great issues of the day, it’s an exceptionally well performed, upbeat musical that captures the period of the 1920s and will put a smile on your face. The cast is uniformly good.

Popular but penniless, Susy and her friend Nick devise the ultimate fundraising scheme—to marry and live off the wedding presents, while they help one another look for suitable millionaires. The plan works perfectly — until they fall in love. An amazing cast featuring award-winning Natascia Diaz.
