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 hilarious romp through the history of musicals (well some of them anyway) -- side splitting fun, professionally performed by the troupe at Metrostage. If you know the musicals you're in for a treat. Even if you don't, it's STILL a treat. GO!!!
In this hilarious parody of musical theatre, one story — about an ingénue who can’t pay her rent — becomes five different delightful musicals, written in the distinctive styles of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, Jerry Herman and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It’s a funny and unique tribute to Broadway! Donna Migliaccio and Bobbie Smith reprise their Helen Hayes nominated roles in this critically acclaimed production along with Janine Gulisano-Sunday.
